I took a trip to my local Dollar General earlier this week to get some Halloween crafting supplies. I love Halloween, and wanted to put together a table perfect for a Halloween dinner party. Dollar General had everything I needed to set a spooky table.

Dollar General Items for Halloween Table


I bought these awesome Halloween supplies at Dollar General:
Store Brand “Dew”-style soda
Halloween Striped Tights
Plastic Body Parts
Skull Straws
“Undead” Caution Tape
Cobwebs (optional)
Plastic Spiders (optional)
To this I added:
Mini Jars (shown)
Lace Tablecloth
Dark Placemats
White Plates
Black Napkins
Everyday Glassware

Creating my table setting was simple. I started by layering my tablecloth, placemats, and china. I set out the silverware, then got to work making everything spooky.

I started with the tights and straws.

Halloween tights and Straws

I cut the tights into sections the height of my glasses. Then slipped the tube over my glass. You can cover about 6 glasses with a single pair of tights.

Add a skeleton straw, and you’ve got some great Halloween glassware!

Next I put the body parts in my small jars.

Body Parts in Jars

The “Mountain Explosion” drink is the perfect color to mimic formaldehyde. I poured it in each jar to cover the fake body part, then closed the lid.

The carbonation makes it extra spooky – don’t you think?

Finally, I used the “Undead” caution tape.

Undead Caution Tape

I cut off 18″ pieces to tie around the napkins, and put everything together to make the perfect spooky table setting.

The cobwebs and plastic spiders can be added to the backs of your chairs, or just the general decor.

This is the perfect setting for a Halloween Dinner, Murder-mystery dinner, or Friday the 13th Dinner. Now to figure out what to serve…
