Dishing On Halloween

October 20, 2015

By Tab Byrum


I’ve told you before that I love dishes and the holidays are a great time to splurge a little on some season specific tabletop fun, and what better holiday to start with than Halloween? Dishes are a great way to get a nice bang for your buck, you can use the dishes and eat off them, you can display them for decoration or both. I like doing holiday plates and platters on easels around the countertops of the kitchen or a collection of them on a buffet, I have one client that has a vertical plate rack in her kitchen that’s specifically for seasonal plates.

Holiday dishes add lots of color to your home and anymore they all have amazing decorative motifs on them to add a lot of fun to your holidays. I rounded up different looks from a few companies that are available online and also through brick and mortar stores and with Halloween being less than two weeks away most of them are on sale, here’s a peek at the spooky tabletop, Enjoy!!!

Pier 1


Pier 1 always has a wide array of designs, from this very traditional pumpkin mug (which would be great filled with candy and wrapped in cellophane for a gift) to the more gothic looking Haunted Elegance collection, which is melamine, so less FEAR of breaking these beauties. Click here to visit the Pier 1 Halloween page. 




Crate & Barrel


Crate & Barrel is known for simplicity with a retro flair and the sassy black cat collection is right on target, the nine-inch plates would be great for holding treats and the coordinating mugs a perfect to serve your favorite potion. If cats aren’t your thing then check out the wicked set of four witch tumblers and matching appetizer plates, which you can coordinate with the spider web platter for a haunting good look.  Click here to visit the Crate & Barrel Halloween page. 





Pottery Barn Kids


It’s always a treat to check out the goodies on the Pottery Barn Kids pages. These awesome melamine plates would be fun for big and little goblins, with their retro storybook feel and some can be personalized, pair up the plates with the matching shatterproof tumblers. Add the two-tiered spider serving piece for cookies and pumpkin candies and your set for your Halloween party. Click here to visit the Pottery Barn Kids page. 






I didn’t find any Halloween dishes at WS, but I did find these Halloween hard placemats and matching napkins. With the full moon, a witch, bats and spiders this little collection has it all going on. Wouldn’t this collection be awesome paired with all black and white dishes for a very distinct look or with all orange and black dishes? Whatever you use, it’s definitely casting a fun spell.
