Fall Tablescape Ideas

The sky is the limit when it comes to your dinning table during fall.  It can be traditional, or playful, or simple.  Make it something you love and let it reflect your family!! 

I, of course, go above and beyond.  I mix tons of colors and textures but that it just who I am and how I like my home to be!!  I took a simple table runner and laid a plaid blanket scarf on it for another layer of design.  Then I threw a whole lot of pumpkins on it!!!  If you love this idea and this look, then I got you covered!!!!  If you want something more simple, don't worry, I have some great ideas for you too!!!  I'm going to create a few different styles here for you, so find one look that you love and run with it!  Incorporate items you already have with a couple new ones if you'd like!

Simple, Classic, Gold

I love the modern simplicity of this gold candle holder.  It would look stunning on your long rectangular table with any color table runner!!  Add small pumpkins like in this photo, or additional gold candle votives, or even the candle holder by itself would be ok!!  Shop this look below...

Neutral Chic

Neutrals are always so classy and lovely!!  I love them!!  This table above has all real pumpkins, but if you want to use fake pumpkins so you can use them year after year here are some great ones!!  Add some texture to the table with the table runner and chargers!!  I love the simple buffalo check on the napkins for a pattern!  Shop this look below...


Fall Colors & Textures


I love the fall colors!!  So warm and happy.  This table is a lot like my table.  These chunky candle holders & candles are lovely!!  Here is a flame-less option too.  Throw a mixture of real and fake pumpkins on your table to create an eclectic look like this.  Shop this table below...

My two rules to creating a great tablescape are

1.Have a vision.  Use one of these pictures or pinterest to get an idea of what look you want while using items you already have!!  Like I used a scarf and cake stand that I already have on my table.  I didn't want to buy a plaid table runner and I wanted some height with the cake stand.

2. Create dimension.  People do not look at your table from a birds eye view, but from the side.  Start with your runner, then create two focal points with some height (one for a round table or more than two for a very long table).  For mine I used a large white pumpkin on one side and a patterned pumpkin on a wood cake stand on the other side.  You want your table to be somewhat symmetrical (doesn't have to be identical but can be).  Then once you have your two focal points then fill in the rest in a somewhat symmetrical fashion:)


Hope you create a great tablescape this fall and enjoy the time with your family and friends!!!

Stay lovely, dolls
