A Sophisticated Halloween Tablescape

Happy Friday the 13th, I thought today would be a great day to share this Halloween inspired tablescape. Halloween is one of my favourite times of year, but being a 31 year old it’s less sweets more sophistication these days. This tablescape is so easy to achieve, some beautiful autumnal foliage, crepe paper, tissue paper and spooky napkins. The supermarkets and places like The Range have some amazing things in at the moment.
