We are in the middle of a heat wave and I’m dreaming of cooler weather and falling leaves. But while I’m waiting, I’m finding ways to be creative, and one of my favorite things to do is create tablescapes. Fall entertaining is one of my favorites! For me, there’s no easier time to entertain – I love that the food is things like a roast chicken and vegetables that can just be thrown in the oven. This is the season of cozy, which for me, calls for more time with family, cooking, baking, and entertaining.
Today’s Rustic Harvest Autumn Tablescape incorporates some soft fall color, as well as touches of gold and copper. This autumn tablescape is perfect for a fall dinner party or even Thanksgiving!
For this table, I started with the flowers. I love incorporating traditional fall color but in a softer form. I mixed some white lisianthus with seeded eucalyptus along with some soft rust flowers and cat tails in a vintage French urn.
The runner is a plaid one I got at Target last year and I’ve never used it on a tablescape before. I love the soft rust mixed with the grey!
One of my favorite things on this table is these wood chargers! I’ve been wanting a wood charger for awhile now. These are rustic but I love that they also have a little style to them with the scalloped edges. On top I layered two white plates and a tiny white pumpkin I got at the Target dollar bin.
I love the gold flatware, too! The richer color adds so much warmth, especially to an autumn table!
I always like to add some seasonal items to a table when I can. It’s so nice to have some natural touches that represent the season. Small white Casper pumpkins, dried artichokes, and seeded eucalyptus run down the center of the table along with brass candlesticks and some copper votives.
The napkins are a coordinating paisley.
I’m looking forward to some fun fall entertaining this year, and I hope this gives you some ideas for your own table settings. This autumn tablescape would be perfect for anything from a casual dinner party to Thanksgiving!
