~Halloween table setting~ {& DIY place card holders}

This is the cutest set up in my opinion and it can be done easily and extremely inexpensively.
Here is what you will need.
Everything pretty much is from Ikea and the Dollar Tree.


These great napkins from Ikea.
$1.99 for a 30 pack.
Ljuda striped placemats.
$1.49 each from Ikea.

White dinner and salad plates.
$1 each from the Dollar Tree.

You will also need:
{not pictured}

Plastic fangs from the dollar store, 12 for $1.00.
Orange and black scrapbook paper.
Black goblets, mine were from a thrift store.
Plastic bugs from the Dollar Tree.
Black spray paint, or your color of choice.

Put together each place setting looks like this:



For the place card holders, spray paint the fangs your choice of color.
While they are drying, print out the names of your guests on cream card stock with black lettering.
Cut them out and glue them to a piece of coordinating orange paper cut a little bigger.
When the fangs are dry, place them on top of the napkin and add the name card.


You can or cannot add the plastic flies and beetles.



That is it! 
I believe each place setting was under $6.00, goblets included.

Happy Monday friends.

xoxo

The combination of the orange animal print napkins and the black and white stripes makes for a very modern, festive Halloween place setting. I love it. I am going to do the same thing for my Halloween Tablescape, so thanks for the idea. I will have to make a few modifications on the goblets and place cards, but really- you inspired me. I appreciate it. I would like to invite you and your readers to visit my blog at: simplysantabarbara.blogspot.com
Best,
Michelle

Love that it's not your traditional
Halloween decor but still feels like it!
The animal print napkins are my favorite part!

Melaine, What is the name of the font you used on the place cards for the Halloween place settings?

SO bummed we didn't run into you at Round Top, Jilly and Mia and I were absolutely melting on Thursday, but you can bet we consoled ourselves with some Royer's Pie in the A/C! Anyway, I am dying to see your cute rug and whatever else you found. I found zilch. Figures...

XOXO
