Easy Fall Tablescape Idea Directions
• Set Six Table Settings: Start with the brown chargers. Add a dinner plate on top of each. If you are setting up your table so everyone sits across from one another, place the brown plates in the middle to break things up. If you are setting “heads” at the top and bottom of the table, set the brown plates there.
• Set your silverware forks on top of the napkin on your left, or place your napkin between the charge and dinner plate draping forward and above, and place your forks to the left on top of the Faux Wood Paper. Set your spoons and knives to the right. Alternatively, you can wrap your silverware inside your napkin (closing with a napkin ring if desired), and place on top of your place settings.
• Add your glasses. If you are offering wine as well as a cold beverage and/or water, you will need an extra set of glasses appropriate for those beverages.
• Set a small fall assortment to the right of each plate. This fall assortment is just fall colored leaves purchased at a local craft store. You could make your own assortment of Fall Colors, by picking up leaves here.
• For the center of the table lay a fall garland across the table.
• Plush Brown Pumpkins were placed across the table. Four were used and purchased at Hobby Lobby. You can find Velvet pumpkins here if you cannot find pumpkin decor locally.
• Complete the look by adding an assortment of Autumn related decorations around the table and as a centerpiece. In this setting, purple and brown flower assortments purchased at a craft store were placed in tall clear glasses. A horn of plenty can be set for Autumn (harvest time) through Thanksgiving. Real (or fake) apples in a Small Bowl for a pop of red color!
• Adding items such as apples, pumpkins, cranberries (fake) or gourds in a small bowl, or is a great way to add color to your Fall Tablescape! You can place small pumpkins, pine cones, leaves as single items about your table. If you have a Micheals, JoAnn Fabrics, Hobby Lobby, Home Goods, Kirkland, Tuesday Morning or Pier 1 Imports, you can browse through these stores and find the items you need to replicate this look.
Creating a beautifully styled fall tablescape is easy and fun! Just let your imagination run wild on the autumn side of decor, and you will have a beautiful fall tablescape set up for decoration, for a party table, or to dress up Sunday dinners.
