    @laura.batty:  If you want dark but not tacky, I really love the first picture for chair covers! 

    I then would buy candle holders, vases, etc and either buy them a dark color or spray paint them either black, dark grey, or silver.  As far as candles, instead of buying the traditional white I’d go with grey/black.  

    If you don’t like the black chair covers, I’d go with grey and black bows, or white with grey bows.

    Your style is very different than mine.  My venue is full of dark wood and fire places, I’m going with light colors for everything else to brighten up the room!

    PS if you have any resale shops (we have salvation army) I would go there for centerpieces as they will be cheap and easy to DIY.  My setting is going to be very eclectic, all my center pieces will be different! I am using old silver plated teapots and pitchers, and also cheap vases from salvation army spray painted to a different color (like white).  I bet you could pull off non matching center pieces, with a dark eclectic look!

    @laura.batty:  Have you heard of scene setters? They are temporary wallpaper -like decorations to suit any theme. You can attach them with 3M Command strips or use double sided tape or poster putty.

    Here’s a Goth example:

    Vampire Bat Room Roll 40ft

    For centerpieces, you could combine red flowers with black feathers

    or use these beautiful dark callas- centre bottom pic

    an easy DIY are manzanita branches spray painted black with red silk flowers hot glued on

    these glitter candelabra would work- I would cut off the spiders

    this one actually holds standard tapers

    Glitter Candelabra $ 16.95

    you could also rent black candelabra-to minimize the expense of flowers, you could  simply scatter red silk petals on the table around the candelabra

    black birdcages with a pillar candle would be simple and dramatic
