Let’s be honest, your fall party or your Thanksgiving dinner isn’t quite ready until your tablescape is just right! When you’re entertaining at home, setting a beautiful table is important and helps create ambiance and set the mood your guests will adopt when they sit down to dine with you.
7 Fall Tablescape Ideas To Set In Special Gathering
Most of these are easy to create, using items you most likely already have around your home or you can use leftover pumpkin from Halloween event. Several have really fun unexpected details and twists too, so grab your cup of coffee and settle in as you gather inspiration for your fall centerpiece!
1. Wheat Cloches
Bundle a small handful of wheat and tie with twine. Turn a cloche upside down and place the wheat inside, then top with base and invert. Add leftover snips of wheat to votive holders (securing with twine)
2. Mini Pumpkin and Eucalyptus
This cool color contrast will look super sleek on any dining room table all season long. If you’re planning to recycle the crate base for future holidays, you can even whitewash the exterior for an upscale farmhouse vibe.
3. Ombre Pumpkin Tablescape
You can start to paint the pumpkins by yourself. Choose the color palette and you could take it anywhere. It could be something that compliments your dishes, a table runner, your favorite candles. Let your imagination run wild! And by the way, did you notice the gold-painted stems?! Swoon! I’m going to do that on every pumpkin now!
4. Cozy Fall Tablescape
Use one of your fall scarves to the delightful tablescape that Cherished Bliss put together. Also, use a large scarf as an alternative to a table runner. Either one would give some added texture and warmth to your table. The large green and white pumpkins look lovely with wooden chargers down the center of the table. Mixing in apples, a boxwood garland, and white candles really finish the look off with a homey feel.
5. All White Pumpkin Tablescape
Pumpkin is not always yellow. Put together a luxurious table in all white. White linens, white chargers, crystal wine glasses, and different sizes of white pumpkins sit atop fresh eucalyptus branches. Use a mix of real and faux pumpkins which is always an option if you can’t find exactly what you’re looking for at the pumpkin patch!
6. Pinecones and Candles
Fill a leftover box, crate, or any rectangular vessel with some candles, pinecones, mini pumpkins, and an assortment of leaves and berries to create this festive display. When it comes to styling this piece, feel free to let things fall over and hang over the edges. It should look perfectly imperfect!
7. Elegant Tablescape
Neutral tones, including whitewashed pumpkins and dried gourds, are layered on top of a smattering of green eucalyptus leaves to create this sophisticated, neutral-toned centerpiece. Thread twine through wood buttons and use to tie up linen napkins.
