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 sage green linen napkins are the perfect soft color and really keep the table subtle, I think. And these work in literally any season! I could see them on a Christmas or even a spring table as well.
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!
