Spider-Themed Halloween Tablescape

Next weekend is Chester’s second birthday. I can’t believe my little muppet will be TWO! He is so young for his age, and my older boys still refer to him as “Baby Chester.” So do we, come to think of it. I think he’ll be my baby till he’s forty! The last kid is always a baby.

Anyway, we’re having another party for him, inviting family and friends. And as we did last year, we’re jumping in with a Halloween-themed party to really make it special. Last year it was all about Pirates, and this year we’re going with a spider theme! Eep!

When it comes to putting together a kid’s Halloween party table, it should be a fun and interactive type of table. We shopped mostly at the dollar section at Target!

Spider-Themed Halloween Tablescape

When it comes to putting together a kid’s Halloween party table, it should be a fun and interactive type of table. We shopped mostly at the dollar section at Target! 

Here’s how we put this super cute Spider Halloween Tablescape together for a kid’s Halloween party! 

  1. First, lay down a plastic or cotton white tablecloth. This will help the clean-up process go a whole lot smoother. Plus, you’re protecting your table from messy spills. 
  2. After placing down the tablecloth, roll out the Organza Web Fabric (pick-up from Hobby Lobby or another craft store), and cut off the extra fabric. To cover the whole table, I cut two lengths of fabric for my table and aligned them side by side. I cut one my length of fabric and placed it in the middle of the table.

  3. Set the table: Place a Gold & Black Spider Dinner plate, followed by a Halloween napkin, and place a spider plate on top.

  4. Add a spider glass with a straw to the right of the plate. Repeat until the table is set. 
  5. I spotted plastic cups with spiders on them at Home Goods. After quickly putting the spider cups together, I placed one at each place setting and a few more around the table. These can be used for drinking or to hold candy and sweets.

  6. For the middle of the table, I added a few mini-pumpkins. You can find mini pumpkins at any grocery store. You can also buy enough mini-pumpkins for each child and have them decorate the pumpkins {great party activity}.Spider-Themed Halloween Tablescape

  7. For the center of the table, I placed a Gold & Black Halloween decorative vase I picked up from Home Goods. 
  8. I placed glitter chipboard spiders around the table. You can also put the child’s name on them and place them at each place setting. 
  9. Towards the end of the table, I added a few more Halloween decorations to help bring this idea together. I placed party bags around the end of the table, as well as Happy Halloween chalkboard sign I picked up from Target’s Dollar section. 
  10. To add a little more Halloween flare to your table, take a few white cheesecloths and drape them around the back of the chairs, walls, and other furniture in the room. 
  11. I also added a few spooky black trees (picked up from Home Goods a few years ago), and more cheesecloth. 
  12. Time to party!
