Halloween Decorations don’t have to be expensive or fussy. White pumpkins and black ribbon bats make a perfect simple yet elegant Halloween table centerpiece.
Black and white seems to be a favorite theme of mine as far as Halloween decorations are concerned. A few years back I shared a black and white table with carved polka dotted pumpkins that glowed eerily over a black web tablecloth. This year I went with more of a whimsical feel with black ribbon bats that happily hover over mini white pumpkins. I love to create a seasonal centerpiece each month for my table so that it can be enjoyed it all month long. Dinners seem easier and it motivates me to usher my family into the living room to sit down for a meal shared around the table rather than squeezing around the island for a quick meal.
These black ribbon bats seem to be flying throughout my entire home this Halloween! I fell in love with them as I hung them in my foyer from a branch to greet all of our guests and now I can’t stop making them.
Guess I’ve gone batty! Ha.
They’re just so simple and sweet that I can’t resist them. The centerpiece bats were made with black ribbon folded in half, cut along the bottom with a few curved cuts and then twisted tightly in the center with a black floral wire (that I found at my local Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Store).
Then I just pushed the wire into the mini white pumpkin. How easy is that?
The rest of the centerpiece consisted of a gathering of multi-sized mini white pumpkins (from Trader Joe’s) an antique silver tray and cake plate stand with a few silver votive candles tucked about.
