A Simple Fall Tablescape
When it comes to the changing of the seasons, my favorite things to decorate and style are my tables in my dining room and my breakfast nook. COVID has definitely thrown things for a loop this year, but that’s not going to stop me from enjoying all the fall things that pumpkin season has to offer. Whether you’re sharing your table with a close, intimate group of friends or just your family this fall, we should all strive to make it a place where precious memories are made.
Creating a beautiful fall tablescape doesn’t have to be hard, expensive, or even require you to go out and buy the latest fall trends in home decor. With a baby coming in the next few weeks, I decided that I wanted to be more minimal in my approach to fall decorating this year and be creative with what fall decor I already had when decorating. I put together a really pretty and simple fall tablescape today, and I must say that it is one of my favorite fall tablescapes that I’ve done. It’s totally different than my typical fall tablescapes that I do in my dining room, and I think that’s why I love it so much! All it required was just some adjusting and changing things around as I ‘shopped’ my home. Take a look at it below.

Simple Farmhouse Fall Tablescape
For this tablescape, I really wanted to layer on the textures to create a cozy fall tablescape that was simple and casual, yet still thoughtful with a hint of elegance. One of my favorite ways to make tablescapes cozy for fall is to mix up textures and incorporate woven textiles and wood accents. When creating the perfect tablescape, I believe it’s all about balance and flow when it comes to colors, textures, and layers.
I started off with this patterned table runner from Homegoods layered with woven placemats. Then I created my centerpiece using a large charcuterie board that I had on display in my kitchen, dried stems, the DIY pumpkin flower arrangement I made a few weeks ago, and a mixture of faux pumpkins in different colors and textures. The cool grey velvet pumpkins really pulled in the cool blue color in the patterned runner, and gave the overall tablescape a great sense of balance and continuity of the eye with the grey linen napkins.
I also added a candle on a wooden riser to give some variance in height, layer in the wood tones, and add an extra dose of coziness. (Candles are one of the best ways to bring the warmth of fall into your home!) I chose a muted sage green charger to tie in the natural green colors from the pumpkins and the flower arrangement. On top of the chargers, I went with my favorite everyday china from Lenox to carry through the neutrals. (P.S. I love that this set of china is elegant in look yet functional and practical for everyday use if I want it to be!) Lastly, I finished off this darling fall tablescape with a light grey linen napkin tied in a rustic knot to give it an overall casual feel.
