Fall Tablescapes

Now, if ya’ll have been following along with me on Instagram, you might have already discovered that I love a good tablescape. I could restyle my table every day if I had the time. For some reason, styling tables comes naturally to me, and I really enjoy it! Hopefully this blog post inspires you to style your table for your next dinner party, family gathering, or holiday party.

Fall Tablescape – Part 1

 

For my first attempt at a fall tablescape, I started with a simple table runner that I bought a few years ago from World Market.

 

I love to add touches of greenery to every tablescape, and this garland from hobby lobby was the perfect touch.

 

I snagged these amazing salad plates at Michales, along with the fake pumpkins that I aligned down the center of my table. I wish I bought more because these plates sold out fast!

 

Not only is it important to add a centerpiece to your table, but layering your place settings also helps to achieve a warm, welcoming effect. I used these ruffle placemats from Pier1 and these white scalloped chargers to add dimension to the table. I also found these simple cloth napkins   which were the perfect touch.

 

 

 

 

Fall Tablescape – Part 2

I am a girl that loves change, the tablescape above didn’t last too long as I got the itch to restyle my table just a few weeks after. As you can see from the photos below, I used some more fake greenery, with the addition of romantic candles to give a more romantic feel to this fall tablescape.

 

 

One of my favorite pieces in my dining room is my chandelier from Wayfair. It is the almost the exact product from Pottery barn but less than half the price! You seriously can’t beat it!

 

 

At night, the light reflects off the crystals and illuminates the room with the most gorgeous pattern.

 

 

For this tablescape, I also wanted to incorporate some more vintage items. I found some old vintage books and ripped out a few pages to lay them on my dinner plates. I then topped them with some fresh croissants and a hint of greenery that I had clipped from my front yard.

 

 

When creating a tablescape, do not be afraid to think outside of the box and add things that you typically might not see on a typical place setting – like the vintage book pages.

 

I also love to layer with different chargers, plates and drink ware. You can mix and match your dining sets for a different look. In this tablescape, I layered two separate chargers to create more dimension with different textures.

 

You can find my favorite scalloped chargers here.

 

There are so many fun elements you can add to your table to create more depth. Here I added a round bread board, and topped it with an apple pie for the perfect dinner party.

 

 

In this table setting I clipped some greenery from my front yard – I love using hints of fresh greenery to place settings when I can.

 

 

 

This is one of my favorite fall table setting looks. I love the cinnamon sticks, paired with the fresh greenery, all wrapped together with twine and a calligraphy name tag to top it off. To me, it is the perfect match of simple, yet elegant.

 

 

I love my china that I received as a wedding present, it is the Vera Wang Wedgwood collection, if interested you can find it here. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another Fall Tablescape

Are you sick of seeing fall tablescapes? I just thought I would share with you one last look! For this table setting, I incorporated pumpkins, pumpkins, and more pumpkins! I had so much fun with this look. This itty bitty little felt pumpkin I found at Homegoods. It is just the cutest thing ever!

I took all the big pumpkins I had bought from Michales and stacked them one on top of the other, adding greenery in between. I created a huge pumpkin tower that surprisingly did not fall down.

 

 

I added a few more pumpkins to the sides of the tower, along with my hobby lobby garland down the center.

 

 

 

 

 

This was my favorite tablescape of the season. It was so fun styling with such a variety of pumpkins.  I hope you enjoyed seeing all of my fall tablescapes, and believe it or not I did have two more table settings that I styled before the season was over. If you’re interested in seeing more of my designs hop on over to my instagram where you can see it all.

    Hi there – me again! I love a pretty tablescape as well, but my dilemma is always what to do on those rare days when you are going to actually have real life people dining at the table. It’s like, when I have company, I want them to see the pretty table I’ve created (because that’s the point, right?), but then the table feels too cluttered when we sit down to eat. I mean, obviously I can remove a big candle lantern or something easy, but when the tablescape is full of smaller stuff (pumpkins, greenery, etc), it feels awkward as the host to start pulling your table apart in front of the guests. What’s your take on this? What did you do for your Friendsgiving party? Thanks! Courtney

      This is a great question! I always place all the food on my kitchen island and everyone grabs there plate to serve them selves from there. It’s what we always did growing. I keep the gravy and the bread, and dressings on the table. If you don’t feel comfortable doing this you can always make a smaller version of this tablescape so you can fit more dishes on the table. However, with thanksgiving having so much food this might be hard!
