Branch & Crows: A Game of Thrones Inspired Halloween Tablescape
Updated: Oct 8, 2020
If you're a big Game of Thrones fan like me, you know that crows and ravens play a big part in the show. If you're not a big fan, then you should be! Be aware that it's not for the faint of heart though. It's 18A and has some intense situations...like when we weren't sure if Jon would die AGAIN....eeeeeek!
But....all that aside, it's a fun show to take inspiration from. There is one scene where a bunch of ravens/crows flood a huge tree in the forest. I mean, there has to be hundreds of them. That's when I thought it would be fun to recreate that scene in a stunning centerpiece for my dining table.
First you have to find a branch. My husband and I went for a walk and found a branch on the ground. Then I spray painted it black (along with a few other DIY's I had been meaning to) with Rustoleum matte black. You'll probably see those other items pop up during the Halloween tour coming later this month.
Once it was dry I added some wisps of faux cobweb and some white fairy lights all around it.
I had one raven from Michael's but he needed a bunch of crow friends. Dollarama had crows this year! SCORE!! So I picked up a bunch. They had two sizes which was nice. Their feet have little wires underneath them making it really easy to attach them all over the branch.
Then I added a few extra faux branch stems to cover the light's battery box.
I adore these black and white striped battery powered candles! The "wick" eerily flickers and adds to the spooky mood. I put them into my Ikea candle holder sets. They are a 100% staple around here.
After the centerpiece was done, I started to work on the place settings. I added a black round placemat, white charger, black plate, checker napkin, Halloween themed salad plate and a grey goblet. DONE...mic drop. I feel like it all came together perfectly.
The salad plates, goblets, fairy lights and linen table cloth are from Homesense.
The big pates and chargers are from dollar tree.
The napkins and candle holders are from IKEA.
The cobwebs and crows are from Dollarama.
The candles and the large "three-eyed" raven are from Michaels.
Spray paint is Rustoleum matte black from Home Depot.
Pillow covers are from Amazon. You an get them in my amazon shop HERE
I added some buffalo check pillows on the ends of the table and a spooky full size skeleton! Mr. Skelly Ton is from Home Depot.
Here's the finished look during the day and also in the evening so you an see the lights a bit better.
Now for the evening view...
I love how the crows look like shadows against the window :)...super spooky!
