This Graveyard tablescape may not be for everyone. However, you must admire the creativity that it took!! The tablescape was on the exhibit floor at a event planners convention I attended. I do like the chair cover which has a tombstone and name.This tablescape was not actually for Halloween but since we were in New Orleans the designer was going with a voodoo theme. As you can see the centerpieces are mausoleums since all of New Orleans cemeteries are above ground. This could easily be replaced with tombstones. Everything was created using foam core board. Cut holes in the eyes of pictures and insert small battery operated lights. You can find almost all of the skeletons and decor at Dollar Tree right now. You can either spray adhesive your stone pattern onto the foam or you can use stone spray paint. It has a rough texture and looks and feels like real stone. I made an entire graveyard last year using the stone spray paint and Styrofoam.
