Tidbits&Twine Creating a Fall Tablescape 2


I was recently asked by Hometalk to share my fall tablescape ideas with their community members.  I had so much fun putting this together and couldn’t wait to share it with you!

To me, fall is a celebration of textures, from the rustic bare tree branches, to the multi-colored leaves and the clear starry nights.  I like to incorporate this variety of textures into my tablescape by mixing rustic and elegant materials for a look of casual elegance.  This year, I used a combination of pinecones, white pumpkins, wheat, vintage silver pieces, and white hydrangeas.

The centerpiece is a vintage wooden box filled with Spanish moss, white pumpkins and pinecones.  I then incorporated a silver wine bucket full of hydrangeas.  Originally, I had planned to put a vintage ironstone soup tureen in the middle (because I’ve been looking for an excuse to buy one!), but didn’t find one in time.  At the last-minute, while shopping at Paris Flea Market, I saw this wooden box and a new idea formed.  Now I’m glad that I didn’t find a soup tureen because I feel that this is more unique and much more “me.”  I guess everything happens for a reason!

On the sides, I’ve used terracotta pots with bunches of wheat, birch candles, silver antler candle holders and pinecones.  You might notice that I used pinecones in the candle holder instead of candles and I chose to do this because the height of the taper candles would have been too similar to the height of my centerpiece and competed with it.  So instead, I just filled the holes with pinecones.

I kept the place settings very simple because I wanted to be able to use my everyday dishes.

And to dress up the chairs and add a bit of color, I tied a simple ribbon around the back of each.

For decorative purposes, I like to include elements with varying heights to add interest.  Admittedly, there isn’t any room for food on this table, but I much prefer decorating to cooking!!!  ;)

  2. Great looking table! I rarely get to Home Goods, but always find something when I do. Your details are lovely. I like to serve from the sideboard because our table is small. I usually fill it with place settings and a centerpiece. ‘-)

      Thank you, Bonnie! I know that whites are a departure from traditional fall colors, but I’m happy with how it all came together.

  6. I love the crate/box in the center, and your white birch candles! The ribbon on the chair back is a fun detail too, beautiful table!
