5 Fall Tablescape Ideas
This may sound lame, but this is actually the first “tablescape” I have ever put together. Sure I have set the table and bought special runners or placemats for holidays, but never really decorated the table. And… I also recently sold our dining table because I was using it more for projects than sitting at to eat, which is a little embarrassing to admit.
However, living in an apartment sometimes means you have to get a little creative to gain the extra space you need. We decided we could use our dining room for furniture projects instead. Luckily, we don’t have kids yet so it wasn’t too tough of a decision and it works really well for us right now. That being said, I can’t wait until we have a house!
For my neutral fall tablescape, I actually headed over to my sister’s house and “borrowed” her table. She did get to keep a lot of the items I used, including the plates, awesome glasses, and book pumpkins, so it was a win-win.
I was inspired by vintage finds, items around the house, and neutral, rustic elements. I had a lot of fun putting it together and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do!
What I used for my fall tablescape:
The twine, burlap, lace, ribbons, kraft tags, mason jars and wine bottles I already had on hand. I rescued the books from heading to the trash and turned them into place setting pumpkins (click here for my tutorial on DIY Paper Book pumpkins). I found the stemware at a thrift store, bought the plates on clearance at Target, the placemats, tapered candles and napkins are from World Market,most of which was 50% off, and the wheat and baby pine cones are from Michael’s.
I has trouble finding real wheat and pine cones nearby when I was putting my table together since it was August, but I think real wheat would have been much wispier and romantic. You can also probably find real pine cones in your backyard now. So what do you think?
