Earthy tones of green and brown make for a warm fall table setting perfect for any fall entertaining, from a dinner party to Thanksgiving dinner.
As I’m sure you know by now, I love fall! The warm scents, cozy sweaters, changing leaves… they all just put me in the mood for more cooking and baking, and also, more entertaining.
Today I’m sharing an earthy and warm fall table setting in tones of green and brown that’s perfect for any fall entertaining you might be doing. I’m loving these hues! They say fall, but in a more subdued way than the bright oranges and rusts.
I know I’ve said I usually start my table with the salad plate, and ironically, I haven’t actually been doing that in my last few, haha! But today, I did! For some reason, I got it in my head to use some of my brown transferware plates for this warm fall table setting.
I have used turkey plates with brown trim in this tablescape, but not these. And can I say, I’m so glad I did!
Do you ever bring out things and think “this is so cute, why haven’t I used it before?” 😉
I love brown and green together – they are both earthy and warm. So when I was picturing this in my mind I knew I’d use these wheat stalks I bought a few years ago, as well as some green pumpkins.
The centerpiece consists of stacked white pumpkins, two glass hurricane vases, acorns, eucalyptus and the wheat stalks. I love how it turned out, and this was so easy! Aside from picking up the eucalyptus at the grocery store, I had everything else on hand.
Green linen napkins tie in the green elements of the centerpiece.
The plates are by Royal Stafford and are called Asiatic Pheasant. They are a little hard to come by, but I did find some on Ebay!
But I’ve found some adorable similar ones, too!
I added some plaid pillows to the end chairs for a little extra cozy feeling.
These little acorns are my favorite!! They are real acorn “tops” cleaned and attached to wood bottoms. That way you can use them year after year, without any critters appearing!
The wood chargers are one of my favorites! They are so versatile – I’ve used them for everything from a summer bbq to an elegant Thanksgiving dinner! And they add texture to the table which I love.
And of course, I had to add a little copper! These are my absolute favorite votives from Pottery Barn that I bought last year. I’ve used them in tablescapes, on the mantel, and scattered around. Unfortunately, they don’t carry them anymore but I’ve found several similar options below!
For this table I mixed real white pumpkins (big and small) with some faux green ones. Usually I like to use as many real items as I can, but it was so early when I was doing the table that there weren’t any real ones available except white and orange!
I do like how realistic these green ones look though! And I love that I can use them again, too.
And can we talk about this rose gold flatware?! I haven’t bought flatware in so long and this fall I’ve been loving all things copper (see my kitchen tour)! These are a soft copper shade – so perfect for the season and adding warmth to any tablescape.
The glass hurricane vases are from Target. I love this clean and simple look, and they are something I use again and again.
Hopefully this table has helped inspire you to create your own warm and cozy fall table setting!

Sheila, I can sincerely tell you that I think this tablescape is the best one for fall I have ever seen. I wouldn’t change a thing, except perhaps the sweater runner – but I absolutely love green and brown together! You did a remarkable job, ma’am!
Have a wonderful weekend.
Aww what a lovely thing to say! Thank you so much (it’s one of my favorites, too!)
I love the color combination. Could you please share which color of green linens you purchased. There are several shades at Williams Sonoma and computer monitors can be misleading. Thank you.
Hi Sandi and thanks so much for your kind words! The napkins I have are the link below, in the “Moss Stone” color.
Hope that helps!
Love the brown and white…a great unexpected touch! xo
Thank you Janet!

Just gorgeous Shelia! I always look forward to what you share for fall. I am also using large wheat stalks with olive green ribbon in my fall decor this year. I just love them! Yours look perfect in your elegant tablescape.
Your transferware plates are so pretty too!
Aww you’re so sweet Amber – thank you so much! I’m so glad you like it! And I’m so glad you’re using the wheat stalks, too. Aren’t they just perfect for fall?!
Thanks for stopping by!

How welcoming! I love the table runner and how the green linens and pumpkins pop off the white!
Thanks so much Julie!
So gorgeous, Sheila! I love fall too and love the details in your table setting!
Thanks so much sweet friend! Looking forward to seeing all of them later today:)
So very warm and inviting. I agree on the brown and green and white. Thanks for the sources. I haven’t purchased chargers ever, but I adore these. Love the transferware and always will. You put it all together so elegantly.
Aww Donna, thank you so much! Your sweet comment absolutely made my day:)
Happy fall to you! (and you should get the chargers – I’m telling you they are so versatile!)

Beautiful table. What are you using as a runner? It looks so effortless!
Hi and thank you so much! The runner is a knit – like sweater material. Unfortunately, it is sold out and I looked everywhere for something similar but couldn’t find anything. I’m going to keep looking though and if I do find something, I’ll update the post!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
That sweater runner is so cute! I wonder if someone on Etsy makes them? I’d love to know where to buy one too. Your table looks so beautiful. I love the warm fall colors of brown and sage green.
Thank you! I love it, but as I told a few others, I haven’t been able to find anything like it! I DID find a pattern to make one on Etsy, but I don’t knit so that didn’t help much, haha! If you find anything similar, let me know!
And thanks for your kind words – I so appreciate it! 🙂
There are similar ones for sale on ebay but they have a faux fur trim to them. Great prices though. I don’t knit either so I’m wondering how hard it would be to make one. I’m surprised that someone doesn’t sell them on Etsy. Thanks for your reply.
Yes, I’m surprised too! If you find one, let me know!
