Protect your potions table with a whole table cloth or this cream and black table runner. Next layer on your essentials, these creepy cauldrons and spooky skull plates mix nicely to give your table some wicked variety!

We combined the black scalloped square lunch plates and gold dinner plates with our setup to match the balloon garland and other various Halloween banners. These beautiful plates have vibrant gold foil accents that pop against the table runner and spooky table decorations.

Each place setting includes matte black reusable cutlery and two Halloween napkins that match the wizard theme. The spellbound witches and wizards letter napkins and spellbound potions napkins will easily make spills disappear—no magic required! 

Each guest has a shiny gold paper cup as well as a mini black and gold rimmed paper cup for whatever poison they dare pick! In addition, they can sip their potions out of gold star paper straws for an extra sparkling touch!

Decorating a table for a Halloween party can be so much fun! It's a safe space to let your creative ideas sore! In the center of our table, we placed a black cake stand topped with cupcakes set in baking cups. We added a few pieces of black and gold bat confetti into the icing to add a festive touch to the cupcakes. We sprinkled the rest of the black and gold bat confetti across the middle of the table for a magical touch!

Next, we found small plastic cauldron buckets from our local grocery store. You can fill cauldrons with candy, treats, and small toys to give out as party favors. We served ours with popcorn so guests could snack. In the others, we added a combination of water and dry ice to mimic a spooky potion brewing.
