Halloween is a great holiday for those interested in home decorating as it offers so many creative opportunities when it comes to color, motifs, and textures that we may otherwise not use on a daily basis. Halloween tablecloths and Halloween table runners in particular can serve as backdrops that create the foundation for a magazine-worthy holiday dining table, treat table, tablescapes, and buffets.
As such, do not neglect your dining space this year and dress it up to complement your holiday decor and festivities.
Browse the variety of Halloween tablecloths and Halloween table runners below to spark your creativity for your next gathering.
1. Black and Orange Buffalo Check
Although advertised as a Fall tablecloth, this piece can most certainly be used for a Halloween-themed table. Interested in this item for a round table? Overstock carries those too. Check it out in the link above.
2. Stars and Spider Tablecloth
This star-speckled tablecloth is great for those who aren’t too fond of creepy crawlies or the more macabre Halloween decor. It comes in a popular black and orange, ideal for anyone who likes to stick to the traditional Halloween color scheme but is looking for something that is cute too.
3. Plaid Tablecloth from Threshold
Want something with some pattern like buffalo check, just not so busy? Try plaid. The orange and white strands of thread add a nice subtle pop of color that can work well in any minimalist or maximalist Halloween tablescape.
4. Waterproof Halloween Tablecloth
Here’s something fun that all trick-or-treaters will love. Worried the white will be too prone to dirt and grime for a busy home? No need to fret as this tablecloth is waterproof, so simply wipe it down with a damp towel to get it looking fresh once again.
5. Black and Orange Woven Tablecloth
If you are looking for a tablecloth that can add a layer of texture to your dining set-up, this rustic woven tablecloth from Vermont Country Store could be it. Made in the USA, this tablecloth is reversible.
6. Floral Halloween Tablecloth
Florals are hard to come by on Halloween decor, but this tablecloth listed on Society6 offers the perfect counterbalance to more morbid forms of decor. The soft greens, creams, and oranges are great fall colors, but the occasional animal skull is what really marks this as ideal for Halloween.
7. Black Rose Tablecloth
Halloween doesn’t have to be reserved for kids. It can be chic when done correctly. This round black rosette tablecloth is not only visually interesting but also offers an incredible amount of texture to serve as a backdrop for your late-night Halloween dinner.
8. Vintage Halloween Tablecloth
If you were considering a tablecloth à la cabinet of curiosities – or the possibility just hadn’t crossed your mind – this one from Etsy will meet the mark. Pair it with touches of orange to really bring out its color.
The wide-spread stripes on this cotton twill tablecloth add an interesting spin to the common stripe pattern. If you are looking to add visual interest to your dining setup or are looking for a large-scale pattern to compliment the existing decor in your home, consider this one.
10. Green Halloween Damask
Halloween doesn’t have to be confined to a color palette of orange and black. Forest green may be unusual but can be very chic when paired with black or silver. If orange doesn’t work with your home, you may want to consider this tablecloth instead.
Halloween Table Runners
1. Vintage Victorian Halloween Table Runner
Looking to support a small business? Head over to Etsy to browse table runners that come in all kinds of aesthetics. The best thing about small businesses is that they are more accommodating to unusual sizing. Purchase the one above to satiate your love of vintage and victorian.
2. Sanderson Sisters Table Runner
Here is a witchy, Sanderson Sisters-themed runner in a classic black and white striped colorway. Select from 72 or 108-inch lengths. Use it on your dining table or incorporate it into a Halloween treat table.
3. Lace Spider Web Table Runner
The great thing about lace table runners is that they are great for layering. Use a tablecloth below this lace spider web table runner to create a color palette with contrast. Or use something with a different finish – like a shimmery, glitter tablecloth – for some additional visual interest.
4. Cotton Texture Table Runner
More of a minimalist when it comes to Halloween decor? Take a look at this black cotton table runner with tassels from Target’s Threshold. Its simplicity allows it to be used year-round if black is a color you use often in your home.

Here is an unusual but festive table runner for your dining room this Halloween. It depicts popular themes such as cats, wolves, owls, and crows, while simultaneously alluding to Scandinavian folk art through its design style.
7. Black and Orange Woven Table Runner
If you are not into the wildly popular kitschy Halloween decor, you may prefer this woven table runner with tassels from World Market. Its combination of fun tassels and texture can bring a touch of Halloween sophistication to your home without feeling too overbearing.
