The Ultimate Halloween Treat Table Guide - Shop Home Basics

  1. Choose a color scheme. Creating a color scheme will make putting all pieces together of your table easier. If you have an idea of what you want the table to look like at the end, preparing treats will be no problem!
  2. Buy individually wrapped candy and treats as desired, while trying to stay within the color scheme as much as possible.
  3. Cover the table with a plastic table cloth for easy cleanup.
  4. Add a table runner to pull focus to the center. 
  5. Select canisters of differing heights to bring more life to the table
  6. Choice serving trays for larger treats such as candy bars, Rice Krispie treats, or any homemade confections. We also suggest individually wrapping these.
  7. Create a centerpiece (we chose a plastic skull and eyeball gumballs on a Home Basics Cake Plate).
  8. With the centerpiece in mind, start filling your jars with candy and arranging them around the table.
  9. Then add in your serving trays and fill those as desired.
  10. Finally, add in finishing touches, such as lights, pumpkins, plastic spiders, etc..
  11. Don't forget snack bags and napkins for your guests!
