Halloween decorations for the table

Flying Bat Napkin Rings from Delightfully Noted are cute and eye-catching for a holiday table setting.
How crazy easy but great are these Halloween party cups!?! You can make these with orange cups (or any other color you like) but black cups are probably easiest to find in a party store. You might not be able to get them at your regular grocery store. The only other thing you need are some stick-on googly eyes!
These spooky potion bottles make a great Halloween centerpiece for your table. I love the Victorian vibe of this candle centerpiece.
Grab a mason jar. This head in a jar is terrifying! It makes a truly scary prank to set up in the refrigerator – definitely not for the faint of heart!
