The caw of the wild at Pottery Barn

Black crow candles add a touch of goth glamour to the Halloween table

October 03, 2009|David A. Keeps

Not all Halloween decorations need to be ghoulish or garish, especially when these economic times are frightening enough. Simple and witty alternatives can add a dash of goth or glamour. While not quite Edgar Allan Poe's fabled raven, these black crow candles have an eerie presence (especially as the wax melts); they also could fit the bill as part of a fall harvest tablescape. They're $10 each at Pottery Barn. The birds can be paired with CB2 Noir vases, $21.95 each, which have a matte black iron finish and a polished nickel interior. Try them with black roses for Halloween, if you must, and chrysanthemums afterward.
