This is one of my favorite Halloween centerpiece ideas.

Beautiful florals paired with your favorite Halloween sweet treats. 

I like to use jars that are different in shape to add some variety.

Then go crazy with the candy; add candy corn, lollipops, pumpkins, ghosts, or whatever else you have on hand to take it to the next level.

4. DIY Bat branches

You can buy fake bats and branches from your local craft store.

Consider spray-painting the branches black to bring a scary look to the table.

Then, attach the decorative bats on the branches and pop them into a vase.

Get a few candle holders, some eucalyptus, miniature pumpkins, and a plaid tablecloth.

Add some black plates, plastic spiders, or faux spider webs if you want an extra creepy touch.

8. Candy vase fillers

No Halloween table decorations are complete without candy, but that doesn’t mean you should follow the basic approach when incorporating them.

9. Spider Jars

Fill any spare glass jars with sweet treats that fit the Halloween theme.

Bring our faux skulls, spider-shaped candy, ghosts, or spooky pumpkins. I like to leave it in the kitchen, so that all guests can easily enjoy.

If you want to make it even scarier, you can always cover the table with Halloween table decorations like a hollowed-out pumpkin, fake cobwebs, and some spiders.

13. Purple, orange, and white
