Do you love to have dinner parties? I do. An autumn tablescape is a great time for a fall dinner party to celebrate the season.
An autumn tablescape is a lovely setting for a delicious fall dinner of seasonal ingredients. The changing season is the perfect opportunity to gather friends.
The fall season is so rich in color that it is easy to find accessories to dress your autumn tablescape. Here are ideas to inspire you.
Celebrate Autumn with a Fall Dinner Party Tablescape
Usually, it’s a small thing that perks my inspiration for a project. In this case, it was this set of ramekins that belonged to Sweet Shark’s mother. I realized that I had just the perfect fall colors to complement the motif of the ramekins.
TIP: Find a color, pattern, or object to be your theme source and then work around it.
I set one ramekin and one napkin on each place setting of dinner plate, salad plate, and bread and butter plate in our Eternal by Lenox pattern. I used napkins in the colors of the ramekin on each place setting.
I knew that I wanted to use a galvanized tub I had on hand and white hydrangeas as the main centerpiece.
A few weeks ago, I found these sheaves of wheat at Pier 1 and loved the organic look and the neutral color. I wrapped them with burlap ribbon and sage green ribbon. The ribbon was from my older daughter’s wedding presents ~ never throw anything away!
As you can see, the next step was to add these twig pumpkins that I have had for years.
Last year I had painted 3 orange pumpkins with Old White Chalk Paint. I had 1 more, so I painted it with Matte White Spray Paint. The stems were plain brown and I wanted to bring in some metallics so I spray painted the stems in gold.
I set burnt~orange candles on 2 of my rose bowl stands. Next, I enhanced them with some faux berries and surrounded them with ceramic pumpkins. Those were an antique mall purchase.
I wanted name tags for my guests and again pumpkins and gold spray paint played a role. Next week I’ll show you how I made them.
I completed the tablescape with our Buttercup silverware. We inherited the cut~glass goblets from Sweet Shark’s grandmother. I found the lace placemats in mint condition at a garage sale. 12 for $12 ~ a steal.
I went for a fairly clean look. My pumpkins, candles, hydrangeas, and wheat are the focus of my table. And, of course, my sweet little ramekins. I think I will use them for our dessert course.
I hope you liked my autumn tablescape. It was fun to do and I love how our home looks when you come in the front door.
