Inspiration for a Non-Basic Fall Tablescape
We are so ready to dive into the fall holiday season we’re taking a non-basic fall tablescape approach. Decorating for gatherings is where we love to flex our creativity and create a space for our friends and family that feels special. When we think about transitioning into a fall aesethic, we try our very best to swerve away from both the trendy and the traditional clichés. Surely there can be a middle ground, communicating cozy palettes without overloading the space with loads of pumpkins, right? If you’re like us and want to try something a little different, you’ve come to the right roundup!
First, a little inspiration. We were fixated on a checkered napkin that felt homey and “fall” but wanted to find a way to bring it up to date with modern touches. We focused on mixing stark black and white patterns to bring a hint of edge into the mix. Contrary to popular belief, there are ways to communicate an autumnal tablescape without the use of pumpkins: enter pampas grass. We loved the idea of taking harvest elements and seasonal goods like figs, pears, pampas grass, and wild brush and deconstructing them on the table. We blended moody with refined, which you’ll see in the prints and place setting choices. Here’s the vibe we’re feeling right now:
Pull It Together
We gathered some pieces that will perfectly communicate this vision for your next tablescape. Pro Tip: Have a few of our previously mentioned organic elements on-hand to play around with layering them on your table while using this Round Enameled Tray as a centerpiece. Whatever you lay on the table will help tie in some warmth and is a great way to achieve a nontraditional yet seasonally appropriate table. When setting a table, it’s important to mix in pieces of varying heights, and even bring in multiple patterns, to give everything a dynamic feel. We included a roundup of items in stores and, we’ve included a free download for you with a checklist of everything a host should have when planning a get together. Happy entertaining!
