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.

  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.

    Angelina I couldn't agree more, Halloween decor doesn't have to be scary to be Hauntingly beautiful! Love Phantom Of The Opera! I am so glad you joined the tour and cohosted the HBD link party too. Looking forward to more collaborations in the future!

    Angelina, this is absolutely breathtaking! The lace tablecloth is gorgeous! I just purchased some lace that is similar looking to have pinch pleat curtains made for my dining room. The red roses add such a wonderful pop of color along with all of your pretty china. It has been so much fun blog hopping with you, sweet friend! Happy Halloween!

    Oh, my Angelina! What a stunningly beautiful table, day or night, but particularly at night!!! I pinned a ton to my At Table and Holidays boards ~ some via Tailwind in the queue. Beautiful!!! Love that you did a Phantom of the Opera theme… a week ago, late on Saturday evening, I couldn't sleep so I went to the laundry/wash house here on the farm/park and decided to sing with Pandora. Guess what I was singing {and hitting the high A's!!!} oh until around 12:30 am??! The whole album!!! I feel totally funny admitting that but I was working out stretching and singing. It was the best time I've had in a while. :D!!! Oh, too! In the springtime, I don't know if you saw my Beauty and Beast posts but I used my one candelabra then. (http://www.frenchethereal.net/2017/03/beauty-and-beast-fairy-table.html and the next one: http://www.frenchethereal.net/2017/03/the-beasts-alpacas-of-wagon-master-farm.html
    Found another candelabra this summer so… more posts will be coming. ๐Ÿ˜€ New series for me. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Love this post!!!
