A “Welcome To Fall” Tablescape Design!

Fall is here and the chillier weather is officially kicking in. So, while it gets colder outside, I’ll be heating things up inside. Where, you ask?! In the kitchen, of course. I’ll be whipping up soups, grilled cheese sammies, homemade breads, and the rest of the comfort food pack.

As you know, with all this cooking comes lots of entertaining and with lots of entertaining, comes the inevitable, stylish tabletop. There’s something to be said about sitting at a pretty table, with delicious food and an overflow of cocktails. I get nostalgic just thinking about it!

So, to kick off the season, I’m hosting a dinner party and starting with the design of my tablescape. It is definitely one of my favorite things to do. So, let’s get to it!

To keep it classic, I chose a neutral color scheme, while maintaining the fall season in mind. I began with square shaped, wicker placemats to define each setting and then layered on , ivory plates atop of grey chargers. It was the perfect blend of colors.

Design Tip: You don’t always need to be ‘matchy, matchy,’ to achieve a cohesive look. By sticking to a neutral color scheme, you can choose a wider array of colors and still maintain a unified design.

I then chose my favorite wine and champagne glasses to create that festive feel I always strive for. The long stems of these glasses provide a subtle hint of sophistication, which I truly adore. As for my napkins, I tied them with a piece of twine and cinnamon stick. The perfect rustic touch!

Next, was the focus of my table top, I selected antique hydrangeas to incorporate some greenery. I also used four empty wine bottles as candelabras. The greenish tints of the bottles and earthy tones of my flowers were the perfect addition to my overall table design.

Design Tip: Do not throw wine bottles out. They can be used for a whole host of things, beginning with your tabletop. I’ve been known to use them as candelabras {as seen here}, vases, and even cool bookends.

Lastly, but certainly not least. I added a pop of color by placing fresh lemons into a glass bowl. Fresh fruits and veggies definitely help play up the fall season and best of all lend themselves as a pretty piece of art. A win, win if you ask me!

I hope this inspires you to go host your very own “Welcome to Fall” p-a-r-t-a-e!
