Tea Party Table Setting Ideas

Thinking of witches tea party themes is half the fun! First decide on a specific color palette like classic black and white or maybe pops of moody greens and blues. Then the overall vibe will come into play.

Maybe it’s spooky chic, apothecary with oddities, or graveyard animals. Famous writers like Shakespeare and Edgar Allen Poe can be very inspiring for a witchy theme!

Check out my ideas below for more creative inspiration.

Here’s a black and white tea party table setting from my last witch tea featuring dollar store skull handkerchiefs as napkins, and chalkboard labels with fictional and historical witches’ names.

Halloween Tea Party Ideas for Decor and DIYs

Witches tea party decorations do not need to break the bank! First, shop your own house for any black and white or metallic decor that could be included in a vignette.

Shop your local dollar store, makeover thrift store finds, and include printable decor for inexpensive witch decor that goes with your theme.

Use a dollar-store window film to create a spooky landscape. Hide the seams/edges with curtains for a realistic appearance.

Add a DIY pumpkin tree to your bookshelf.  When Halloween is over, simply turn the pumpkins around for Thanksgiving styling. You can also see how I repurposed these pumpkins into heirloom-inspired ones.
