Autumn Tablescape Inspiration


This autumn table was so fun to decorate. I made an autumn leaves table topper to lay in a diamond shape upon a gold damask tablecloth. The tables were then adorned with brown square dishes atop basket weave chargers. The smaller salad-sized square plates in a variety of fall colors topped the brown plates. The leave bowls were perfect for pumpkins soup.

Napkins grace the table in a variety of fall colors which you can find online or any home goods store. Sprinkled upon the table were Mylar leaves accompanied by gold wine stems and purple water glasses.

The flowers were seasonal autumn sprays and were set within pewter vases. The table, one from an earlier Autumn was magnificent, if I do say so myself!

I find when you have a passion for tableware, you simply add to your collection each year and your tables become more and more abundantly set throughout the years. I like to advise newly marrieds and people starting out on their own to just add a little bit every year. It is more affordable and you get excited about setting your tables each year because you have something new to add to the mix. Additionally, just starting out, I would definitely start with fancy white dishes and clear glasses that go with everything.  That way, you can change tablecloths and napkins and other embellishments  to create every tablescape to be its own creation.

Let me know what works for you.  I always love to hear from creative people!  

Until next time~
