Boo-tiful black and white decor
September 22, 2020
If you want to spin a web of spellbinding Halloween decor, look no further than the classic combo of black and white. As you know, we’re very fond of this pairing, so it’s not surprising that you’ll find a lot of black and white decor in our latest Halloween collection.
As always, there are several black and white pumpkins, including our new Gold Medal Courtly Check Pumpkin, which is surely prizeworthy. It has alternating panels of our hand-painted Courtly Check and Courtly Stripe patterns, plus a twisted golden stem.
You’ll find even more black and white decor in our ceramic Mod servingware, which is perfect for dressing up the dining room for an intimate gathering of your favorite ghosts and goblins. The common denominators in the Mod collection are the spare, sleek silhouettes; the fun mix of patterns; and the finishing touch of gold lustre.
The showstopper of the group, no doubt, is the Mod Cake Plate, which has a removable witch’s hat in its center. For Halloween, surround the hat with cupcakes and cookies. Remove the hat, and it’s perfect for serving treats any time of the year.
Other table accent pieces are the Mod Lidded Bowl, which resembles a striped pumpkin with a curled stem. It’s perfect for filling with Halloween candy. For enlightening ambience, add the Mod Boot Candle Holder, which holds one of our Glow by MacKenzie-Childs dinner candles (might we suggest our Spider Dinner Candles to continue the black and white theme?). Finally, don’t forget to spice things up with the Mod Pumpkin Salt and Pepper Shakers.
The finishing touch on the table would be place settings that start with our Courtly Check Enamel Dinnerware. Have fun by placing it on top of a Sweetbriar Charger and adding some ribbon to create a spider’s web. You can find the how-tos for making that here. We also have beaded Tarantula Napkin Rings that are sure to add that extra bit of spooky style.
Extend the black and white decor theme beyond the dining room with accents that include the Mod Owls, which would be great on a mantel or a bookshelf. We also like our black and white pillows, including our Cat in Hat Pillow. It’s features our Black Cat rendered in embroidery wearing a stitched checked and striped witch’s hat embellished with beading and a tiny embroidered spider. Finished with hand-tied silk pom-poms, it easily adds seasonal style to any decor.
Finally, fill The Entertaining Kitchen, the space where everyone gathers for food and fun, with more Courtly Check cookware and accents, as well as black and white dish towel sets, including our Black Geo Dish Towels, our Black & White Zig Zag Dish Towels, and our Black & White Dot Dish Towels. One more to add is our Tartan Spice Dish Towel. Featuring a printed trio of gorgeous gourds on background of woven cotton, the finishing touch comes from a checked border and our fetching logo.
