Halloween Tablescape with Lights


Welcome to the first day of Autumn Jubilee!  Halloween is coming, and I had a fun time creating this tablescape for it.  There is more than just mine here as well, be sure to check out the Halloween Tablescape blog hop at the end of the post.

For my holiday table, I started with my black caldron set atop a quilted Halloween table topper. I had this garland, and I arranged it like the skulls were bubbling out of the caldron.

I added the LTE Lights winding the lights around the garland. This is the control unit, and I put it inside the caldron with the sensor peeking out the top so the remote control could work. Yes, I said remote control, more on that in a minute.  I ran the power cord under the garland and under a charger to plug it in.

In the daylight, the light string looks a bit like spider webs in the garland.  I fixed the cord that is showing before moving on with the centerpiece.

I added two glittery word plaques, one says “Spooky”…

and the other side says “Boo!”

At one end of the tablescape centerpiece, I placed a black cat crouching over a jack-o-lantern.

On the other end is a fun small jack-o-lantern with a happy face, a thrift store score.

I put black napkins in pumpkin napkin rings, also from the thrif store last year.

Then I got to the place settings. Here’s where I really had some fun, putting out my new Halloween plates I just got last week. I couldn’t resist them!! So cute, and each one is different.

There was a set of four, and I placed them on top of my white stoneware, all on the black chargers.

The plates are so shiny, I had to turn off the light over the table to get pictures, that is why they are a bit dark.

Aren’t they just too cute?

Now for the fun part, turn out the overhead lights, and grab the remote controller….

then, light up the Even Lights set, and select the program you like.

There are eight different program light effects, along with ten settings for solid-on lights from very dim to fairly bright. The orange buttons will make the lights flash either slowly, or quicker, or in a flicker-flash. The blue buttons on the right side of the controller will do a gradual up and down of the lights from dim to bright, selecting how fast that happens. There is no way to really describe this, so I made a video for you to see some of the settings. The video runs about a minute and a half and will show most of the settings so you can see the fun you can have.  Be patient at the beginning, the lights are actually getting a bit brighter and dimmer but the first setting is pretty subtle.

Now, wouldn’t that be fun for a Halloween party or a buffet table!!  LTE Lighting Even Lights

Final touches on the tablescape, I added water glasses to the place settings and black candles.

And then took a few more pictures at night with the lights on, such fun!

The black cat with a happy jack-o-lantern looks a bit more menacing now.
