Table Setting of the Week #18: B&W & Halloweeny

For this week's table setting, Melissa was inspired by Halloween and chose to maximize drama and black, the color of night, witchs' hats, cats, and bats with its classic partner white.

To achieve this look Start with Libeco Home Vence Linen Tablecloth-69" Square-Grape, overlaid with Chilewich Lattice Table Runner-Silver and Chilewich Lattice Table Runner-Caviar.

Beneath each place setting, Melissa slipped underneath the lattice runners a Chilewich BambooRound Tablemat - White which shows through the lattice so that it brings a bit of light to the dark colors of the linen and runners.

The dinnerware is a playful take on squares and circles and black and white. Starting from the bottom, Heath Ceramics Plaza Dinner Plate - onyx, Jars Ceramics Tima Dessert Plate, Heath Ceramics Plaza Salad Plate - onyx, and Jars Cermaics Tima Cereal Bowl.

To finish each place setting, Sabre Djembe 5 pc Place Setting - jungle and Simon Pearce Hartland Wine glass stuffed with Libeco Home Vence Linen Napkin - Black are laid.

At the center of the table are numerous and differently shaped candle sticks and votives to provide a dinner lit entirely by candlelight. These include Simon Pearce Pomfret Candlestick, Simon Pearce Hartland Candlestick - small, and Simon Pearce Cavendish Candlestick.
