In this post – a French gothic Halloween table inspired by the Phantom of the Opera

I was thinking about my theme for my Halloween table this year and I was thinking… Haunted mansion initially.
Note: I have updated this post from earlier this month because I am participating in a fun Halloween Blog Hop put together by Amber at Follow the Yellow Brick Home!
If you are joining me after touring Belle Bleu Interiors, welcome!

But then on vacation, I had listened to the Phantom of the Opera on the airplane and had been humming the tunes for the past few days…
Then I thought, oh! I have my theme!
Inspired from the phantom’s lair full of candelabras, as seen below from the movie.
I used these antique French altar candelabras as my base.
Red roses are the other main theme – the phantom gave Christine red roses.
I used an antique lace tablecloth on hand.
Dried roses rest on each plate.
Crows and pumpkins add the extra Halloween touch.
A look at this table during the daytime, although I had much more fun shooting at night!
Antique Meissen plates add a little extra color to the table and go with the flowers.
Everything on this table I already had on hand – except the fresh flowers, pumpkins (from our garden), and the Crows which I got here.
Just decorate for halloween with things you already have – and then sprinkle a few little Halloween touches here and there, such as: crows, witches’ hat or broom, potion bottles, skull, insects, pumpkins… you get the idea!
The red Celosia cristata remind me of the gyri of brains. The red roses and purple carnations add to the Halloween flair.
Your Halloween decor does not have to be so creepy or scary.
You can set an elegant Halloween table with vintage and antique decor.
Meissen Purple Indian are the purple/pink plates
Gold Candelabra (not French, but gives you the similar phantom effect!)
