20 Astonishing Halloween Decors in the Dining Room

According to Wikipedia, ‘the word Halloween or Hallowe’en dates to about 1745 and is of Christian origin. The word “Halloween” means “hallowed evening” or “holy evening”. It comes from a Scottish term for All Hallows’ Eve (the evening before All Hallows’ Day). In Scots, the word “eve” is even, and this is contracted to e’en or een. Over time, Hallow Eve evolved into Halloween. Although the phrase “All Hallows'” is found in Old English (ealra halgena mæssedæg, all saints mass-day), “All Hallows’ Eve” is itself not seen until 1556.

With this information in mind, we have created a list about how you can decorate your dining room table during this festive season! If you have checked the list we have created for fall, the designs here are pretty similar only that this is creepier and has more spider web, skulls and candles.
