Who is ready for fall? I’m ready for winter and 2021, but I guess I will have to settle for fall.
I’m excited to be joining a group of other bloggers for the Welcome Fall Tablescape blog hop to share some fall table settings. Our host is Chloe with Celebrate and Decorate.
Table settings are always a bit challenging for me because I don’t have that many dishes. But I think you can get a seasonal table even if you don’t have special dishes for every season.
The basics on the table
I almost always use white plates because I really like the way the food looks on white plates. This fall I have two new additions. I found some brass and teak flatware on ETSY and new napkins.
I think the flatware gives the table a warm rustic look.
I found several sellers on ETSY that carry this flatware and it’s really inexpensive. I bought my flatware from BlueThunderBird and it arrived in just a few days. The blue chambray napkins are thick, high quality cotton from Amazon and they come in many different color combinations.
I used some basic square white plates and brown square salad plates. See similar ones at World Market and these I like better than my brown plates. I’m keeping my eye out for some transferware to use one day.
For the placemats, I used some sheet music wrapping paper that I got from Paper Source. They are out of stock online, but you could use real sheet music that you don’t want to use or alternate sheet music wrapping paper. This idea wasn’t mine, I saw another blogger use old sheet music on her table and I love the idea.
The rustic wood candle sticks are from Magnolia Market, but they are discontinued. I like these wood candle sticks from World Market even better.
Simple fall centerpiece
I like to use a wood box in the center of the table because it has a low profile. Wood boxes can be expensive, but World Market has an inexpensive wood box for Tea that would work great. You can find a huge selection of wood boxes in every price range on ETSY (and lots of them at flea markets).
I used some faux eucalyptus to add a little bit of life to the centerpiece and a pair of dear antlers that my son found. Did you know that dear shed their antlers? You can also buy them on ETSY.
Lastly, I have an iron pumpkin from IKEA. They don’t have these this year, but they have iron pumpkins on ETSY. Do I sound like a broken record? I love ETSY. If you want to see what’s new in the IKEA catalog for 2021, I’ve scoped it out for you.
Now it’s time to see some other fall tables. If you came from Celebrate & Decorate, the next stop is Barbara at Mantel and Table. She has some seriously beautiful dishes. Enjoy!
