A Macabre Affair
Black and white is a classic combination to get your party guests in a ghostly mood. Throw a black tablecloth and a white runner on your hors d’oeuvres table.

Don’t forget about tableware to serve your Halloween-themed food. For that, check out the offerings at the Bernadette Schaeffler Collection.
Maybe you’d prefer a shabby-chic Halloween. Start by assembling natural and rustic materials to represent the fall season. Try grouping multi-colored gourds and pumpkins on the porch in front of a distressed, glassless window frame. Weave a natural cloth such as burlap through the all the items to tie the ensemble together. For fabric ideas, you’re sure to find something at Kravet Fabrics.
