With fall nearing, I’m beginning to shop for our tablescape for the season. It’s hard to begin, because I want to grab every pumpkin nearby, but there are other elements that can be added, such as leaves or colors and textures. My favorite part of each season is getting to switch up my decor, especially our table. As I begin to search for the perfect items, there are a few things I like to think about while shopping.
Here are 14 items you need for your beautiful fall tablescape this upcoming season!
Fall decor is so much fun to shop for! There really are so many different ways you can go with it. The easiest way to begin is by picking a color palette for the fall season and adding in natural elements to spice it up. For example, decorating your dining table with fall foliage, adding in an earthy tone, a pop of color on the table runner and small faux pumpkins are a great way to celebrate fall via your dining room table. You can go on pinterest and choose your favorite tablescapes as inspiration, which is such an easy way to figure out what your personal style is for decor. Of course I like to decorate the entire home, but beginning with the dinner table is the perfect fall touch.
While decor makes for a beautiful tablescape, functional items are important. Having traditional fall colors and velvet pumpkins make great options as a part of the tablescape, but it is a table for a reason. We dine and entertain there and so having decorative items that are completely functional are essential. For instance, place settings: gold silverware- it’s a simple way to add fall table decor, while being totally functional. I found bowls that are shaped like pumpkins, which is another great example! Having that feeling of fall really warms up the space and gets us in the holiday spirit, but we do like to have these items that are useful.
This is one of the most important categories! Having items that can transition between seasons is one of the best design ideas. Color schemes that stay neutral are the easiest way to do this. White plates are a home decor item that can be used in any season, while being dressed up by napkins or festive bowls on top. Another versatile item is having a neutral table runner and linen napkins. These are basics that can be put out year round, and are also great if you live in an apartment and don’t have a ton of storage space. You can keep these versatile items out while decorating them for dinner parties or the autumn season in general, simply by adding a rustic centerpiece, fall floral arrangement, dark accents or simple pumpkins. There are small changes that can make a huge difference each season.
