I love this time of year. Fall is the beautiful in-between of a horribly hot summer and the freezing temperature of winter. The trees are almost bare and the temperature is slowly dropping to a brisk cold. I imagine snow is coming soon, but it’s not here yet! It’s also that time of year where we can all use fresh ideas for creating a beautiful fall tablescape and decor. If you are like me, you like to change up your decor and not do the same centerpieces every year. It’s fun to try new things! Here are some fresh new ideas on your fall tablescape.
How to Create a Simple Thanksgiving Tablescape:
This year I decided to keep things simple. There is something beautifully elegant about a simple tablescape where the table isn’t absolutely plastered with items everywhere.
- Neutral colors with a subtle pop of color- I decided to stick to traditional neutrals of taupe, cream and white. The various shades of brown in my place settings as well as my foliage and pumpkins are eye catching, but also simple. The accent color I added so the table wasn’t completely boring. You know me… I just love my turquoise shades!! It’s pretty fun to bring in a color that isn’t often utilized in traditional Thanksgiving centerpieces.
- White dishes- There is another lovely simplicity about using classic white. I used my white dishes in my centerpiece and I love that they are neutral, but also elegant. Sometimes you may think that white and cream clash, but they actually can go very well together if used correctly.
- Fall Foliage- For the main centerpiece I decided to use a gathering of fall foliage incorporating leaves and cotton with the taupe and white of my color scheme. It really brings the outdoors into the home and ties in more of the simplistic nature look into my fall tablescape. I also added in neutral pumpkins and gourds, as well as could with my pop of color. The turquoise is well-balanced with the several neutral pumpkins. I also added in my cream fabric pumpkin for a little more texturized variety.
- Grateful cutout– Last, I completed my dining area by changing out my thankful cutout and replacing it with a new grateful sign. Who says your dining decor only has to be on the table? I love this new word and I especially love that people will see it and remember the deeper meaning of the season. We have so many things to be grateful for. I wish it was the focus for more than just November!
Happy fall decorating!!
