Quick Fall Dining Table

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!

I love the muted blue napkins, and that flatware is awesome! I am all about white plates myself, and I love how you have layered yours with the brown plate and the blue napkin. That music sheet wrapping paper is darling! Your centerpiece brings in so many elements that remind me of fall! Beautiful table 🙂

    I love your beautiful fall table! The idea to use that sheet music is just brilliant and really adds to the layered place settings. I also love that you used blue napkins because they really stand out against all the neutrals. Pretty centerpiece too! Great hopping with you again! Oh..and I’m with you being ready for 2021! Let’s be done with 2020 once and for all!
    Cheers!

  4. Andrea, your table is lovely. Simple and woodsy with the addition of the antler to your rustic wood candleholders and the wooden box. I have been thinking I really need to make myself a wooden box to use as a centerpiece. My mother used to use a blue patterned dinner plate and has had to go to all white because of my Dad’s loss of his eyesight. At least on white he can see where his food is! I agree, food on white just looks better! Thanks so much for joining in again and sharing your style!

  5. Andrea, I love Etsy, too! What a sweet thing to provide a link to the 2021 Catalog! Everything in one place. I love your square plates and the wooden candlestick holders.

    Andrea, I say you can never go wrong with white dishes. They work perfectly in any season, and it is so easy to change the look by changing linens and accessories. Your table looks so beautiful adorned for the season. I adore the blue plaid napkins and pretty flatware. I love the sheet music as placemats. It is so much fun hopping with you! Take care!

  7. This is lovely Andrea, subtle colors, the textures and wood elements hinting to fall… and the music sheet placemats are an unexpected surprise! White plates are the smart choice, but I’m always drawn to the colorful patterned ones! Your uncluttered simple style is welcoming and warm.

  8. Andrea, I love sheet music decor, and your teak flatware is so charming! You styled a lovely fall table. Happy Fall! Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

  9. So simple and elegant for any season Andrea! I love the warmth your wood accessories bring to the table with your antlers, cutlery, candlesticks and centerpiece box. So happy to hop with you again and celebrate fall. ♥

  10. Andrea you are so darling! You set a fantastic table – it’s so serene and beautiful! And fall! Do I spy our skinny linen table runners? 🙂 Hope you have a lovely day my friend!

    I was planning to save my antlers for deeper into fall but I love the way you styled them on your table. Around here small wooden boxes are hard to find but I’ve been lucky enough to get a few. I think they work well year round. The flatware is so pretty and I guess I’ll hop on over to Etsy to see what I can find.

  12. Andrea, table love! I really admire those napkins, and how you’ve styled the brown, blue and white. I keep white dishes as my staple, and love just picking up salads to play with. This is a very nice look for fall. It would even better if it were fall 2021, am I right??
    It’s a pleasure to be in your company and celebrate the coming of fall on this roundup. Happy September!

    1. Happy September to you too Rita. Here’s to tables in 2021.

  13. Andrea, I love the rustic elements in your table such as the black metal pumpkin, wood box, deer antler and the natural element of burlap. It really sets the tone of the tablescape for Fall. What a beautiful choice for napkins. They contrast so well with the music sheet placemats. A very lovely and inviting Fall tablescape.

  14. Andrea, white dishes always work. Your cutlery is beautiful, I haven’t seen this before. Your table is classically elegant with rustic touches like the antlers, which I happen to love to use for fall and winter. It is so nice to hop with you again.

  15. Andrea, I love your combination of the square plates. The colors and the shape provide great contrast. I love your rustic elements. I rarely think of shopping Etsy so I will have to look into it more.

  16. Andrea, whites dishes are always in style and a great canvas for food. Love the wooden box and the candle stocks. Adding naturals elements like the antlers is lovely. The music sheet placemats are lovely. Happy September.

  17. I love the casual rustic feel of your table, Andrea! I may have to look up those chambray napkins, those are right up my alley. All the natural elements really sing to me – maybe because there is sheet music as the background!!!! Brilliant! I am happy to hop with you and wish you a wonderful fall season.

  18. I love what you did Andrea, and I think we have similar tastes 🙂 So fun to see everyone’s tables, thanks for sharing.

  19. I have white dishes. I try to look for white accessory pieces as well. They go for any season and Your Table is Lovely 🙂. I have a wooden candleholder and some random size wooden dishes that say “fall” to me. So I would be right at home at your house!!
    I also have used red/white/blue for Thanksgiving (coming soon) since it is truly an American Holiday!
    Happy Fall Y’all ❤️🍁🍂
