Elegant Fall Tablescape in Greens and Creams

This elegant fall tablescape celebrates the season with a non-traditional color palette of neutrals and fresh greens.

Today I’m sharing an elegant fall tablescape done in neutrals and greens. If you’ve visited me here before, then you know that I’m not a huge fan of the traditional fall colors of oranges and rusts. But I absolutely love the season!

So, I had to find a way to celebrate the season while going with a non-traditional color palette. I think this elegant fall tablescape still says “fall,” without being over the top. As I always do, I started with my salad plates….

How cute are these plates?! The second I saw them I knew they would set the tone for the whole table. I love the tree and the subtle browns and olive greens are just the palette I was looking for!

Unfortunately, these plates are already sold out, but I’ve found a few similar ones and am linking them below.

The centerpiece consists of white pumpkins, dried artichokes, wire votives, silver candlesticks, and eucalyptus.

I knew I wanted to use only white and/or green pumpkins, but it’s so early, all I could find were the tiny baby boo ones. The other larger white ones are faux. Tip: if it’s too early for pumpkins in your area, go with faux. You can always sub them out later for the real thing once they become available.

The patterned runner adds color and pattern, and I love that it brings in some other tones as well. I chose it because I loved the greens and greys in it, and because again, it didn’t scream Thanksgiving. I layered it over a fringed linen runner for added texture.

The focal point of the table is an antique French demijohn filled with seeded eucalyptus. I love the simplicity of the bottle, and of course, the color was perfect! For more information on how to find and style demijohns, you can read my whole post on them here.

The demijohn combined with the small and large white pumpkins, dried artichokes, more eucalyptus, vintage silver candlesticks, and chicken wire votives covers the center of the table.

I love layering plates and chargers – I’m sure I’d use 5 or 6 if I could! Here I used a silver charger first, followed by my everyday white plates, and then the salad tree plate on top.

To me, this table feels autumn-y yet it’s still neutral. By using greens and creams, with a subtle nod to the changing seasons and items from nature, I think it’s an elegant fall tablescape that still has a warm and cozy vibe!

    1. Thanks so much Kim! I love that soft green – definitely my color!

      Love hopping with you again too! And your table was so perfect:)


  10. I was in Williams Sonoma yesterday and saw those dishes…so pretty. Did you see the gray glass s to hey had with them?

    1. Thanks! Aren’t they great?! I mean, I just fell in love with them! And no, my WS didn’t have grey glasses with it, or at least I didn’t notice. I bet they were gorgeous!

      Thanks for stopping by!


  11. Sheila,
    I love how you started with the gorgeous plate and then decorated around it. All your elements are perfect and so rich with color and texture. Everything works fabulously together and I just love this table! You have a great style and it is clearly evident in this tablescape!

    1. I always start with the plate! It really sets the tone for me and then I work from there. I know other people start with linens, or even the centerpiece, but this works for me I guess!

      Thanks so much for your kind words Janine, and as always, thanks for hosting my fabulous blogger friend:)

    Hi Sheila, I thought I had you in my personal email, but I guess I don’t. On your post with the bread bowls there was an oval one with candles and succulants. Was that yours? Did you plant that one? I was thinking of doing that and wandering about how to go about it. Don’t want to ruin the bowl with dirt. Any words of wisdom??

    1. Hi Jackie!

      No, that one wasn’t mine – it was from Pottery Barn. You could probably find the picture again on Pinterest and/or google it and it might take you to the PB blog (yes, they have one!) and perhaps that’s something they talked about and/or explained. Other than that, you might just have to wing it:)


  14. First of all, who doesn’t LOVE eucalyptus?! I adore those salad plates, it’s all stunning Sheila!

    1. I know, right?! I adore eucalyptus (and the smell!) Glad you like the plates too, I just adore them:)

      So fun hopping with you this time Martha!


  15. Gorgeous table, Sheila! I love the soft colors which seem just right this time of year. I know how much you love fall so I hope you get to enjoy every moment!

    1. I DO love fall!! And thanks Shelley – I wanted a softer feel so I’m glad you think I achieved it!
