Neutral Fall Tablescape

Are you all getting ready for Thanksgiving and all the fall festivities? Fall is my favorite season and I love doing tablescapes this time of year! For that reason, I’ve created a free e-book with twelve of my favorite tables for lots more inspiration for you!

Today, I’m sharing a fall tablescape that I did a couple of weeks ago for a dinner party. At the time, it was before Halloween, and pretty far from Thanksgiving, so I didn’t want to go with a lot of traditional fall colors. I wanted to do mostly creams and neutrals, while still having it feel like fall.

The theme of this fall tablescape started with this fig plate from Home Goods. I love the soft greens and browns, and I layered it with a cream plate and a cream charger. The fig plate is hard to find, however, I found this plate which is similar!

White pumpkins made up the central centerpiece with faux pears and acorns scattered around. I love to use natural items like fruits or vegetables when I can. Also, mixing the real pumpkins in with the faux pears and faux acorns makes everything look a little more “real.” I also added some serving pieces in vintage brown transferware that I already had.

 I used a beige linen napkin because I was aiming for that neutral thing, but if I wanted to change this up for Thanksgiving, I would just use a plaid or floral napkin, to amp up the “Thanksgiving” flavor.

    Hi, I came across your blog while browsing through pinterest for Fig designed plates!
    I love the colors and the aesthetic aspect of the plates and would love to look for something similar but unfortunately i have scoured through online but couldn’t find any.
    Do you mind letting me know the company info and where its made printed on the back of this plate?
    Or could you send me a picture of the back of the Fig plate?
    Would much appreciate it!

    1. Iā€™m happy to help! The plates are pretty obscure and were a lucky find at Home Goods a number of years ago. The back of the plate says GTB Ceramics and then below that, Made in Italy. Hope that helps!

  2. Thanks so much Rosie! I really appreciate that. That is what I was going for; the essence of Fall without using the bright colors we normally associate with it.

    So glad you stopped by!


  3. So beautiful. I love the fig plates, in fact, I WANT the fig plates!

  4. An absolutely lovely table! I love your fig plates and it's amazing how you can capture the fall feel without the bright orange and yellow colors! A whole new approach which I really appreciate and will try during this transitional time period! Thank you for sharing.

  5. Sheila, Love your table. This is my kind of look. The whites are so pretty with the acorns and white pumpkins. Those fig plates were a great find! I love the brown transferware too. I have been thinking of collecting it as it's always beautiful for Thanksgiving. Thank you for the nice note on the blog. I do hope you get up to Northern Cal! It would be great to meet up. Have a beautiful Thanksgiving! xo Kim

  6. This is so very pretty. Love that fig plate! I like how this feels fall without screaming ORANGE! Still love orange pumpkins, though! šŸ˜‰

  7. I love your table setting and I am a huge white pumpkin fan as well. It's all so perfect for Thanksgiving. Your dishes are gorgeous!

  8. What a pretty table! I like a neutral look any of time of year but especially in the fall. It just feels like it captures the feel of the bare trees and quiet feel. I like your plate stack with all that beautiful texture.

  9. Such a gorgeous table! I love your dishes and their great edges all stacked so perfectly together.

    Beautiful table!
