I know it may seem a bit early to be setting up a fall tablescape. Well, not for me! I love this time of year and I love creating new, inviting spaces throughout the season. I am excited to be participating in a tablescape bloghop, and its all about fall! (Make sure to check out the end of the post where all the other blogger links are!) Since it is a bit early still, I thought I would use the resources around me, and create an early harvest tablescape.
My early harvest tablescape
When I mean harvest tablescape, and using the resources around me, I really mean it. This time of year, we are having a bounty in the garden, and all of the foliage is just too beautiful to ignore.
I find that we spend much of our time this time of year working, preparing and getting all of our harvest ready for the winter. Our peach trees are stripped of their fruit, our tomato plants are just getting ready to bear red ripe fruit, and our corn, is days away from being on our dinner table.
So I wanted to include a few of my fall elements in my early harvest tablescape. I also wanted to let you in on a little secret. Over the past few weeks, I have been working away on some pretty great fall printables.
I have been looking, and searching, and well, just coming up empty when it came to finding some fall printables that had a soft, organic feel to them. Something that would looks perfect in a farmhouse style home, or any home where you may want a muted or soft look.
This year, in many of my home tours, including my spring tour and summer tour, I have been obsessed with adding touches of blue to the space. This fall, it is no different. I feel like I was able to create some pretty great watercolor printables that not only look great, but incorporate a little bit of that blue/grey hue I am loving lately. Here is a sneak peek! You can see more throughout the post.

Now, lets get back to my early harvest tablescape…
My inspiration for the base of this table was the plaid fabric.
I have currently been working on 40 centerpieces for a hospital foundation dinner, and I really wanted to work a late summer vibe into the centerpieces. This fabric is the anchor to the centerpieces. and I kind of fell in love with it, so I went and snagged my own from Joanns Fabrics. Since the more bold blue fabric was used as the base, I wanted to keep the rest of the table soft, and raw.
Using my seagrass plate chargers in this harvest tablescape, it adds a lot of texture to the table. Once the seagrass chargers were in place I added my favorite white dishes from Amazon.
I added some raw dropcloth napkins(strictly for decor) to the top of the plates and topped that off with a sprig of faux acorns.
Instead of plain cups though, I added my copper mules to the setup. I love the pop of glamour and color they give the table.
One other element I was inspired to use is the foliage in the centerpiece. I want to focus on some specific elements in this space. Galvanized metal, natural elements, and vintage farmhouse style.
Around our area, we have this underbrush called Manzanita, which means little apple. It is the most interesting plant. We used it last year in my sisters outdoor wedding in a big way. I remembered how durable it was. It stayed fresh for so long, and the leaves never wilted. I think it is a perfect thing to add to your decor, since it lasts so long.
Three galvanized containers full of Manzanita is the center of my early harvest tablescape.
It was time to add some simple features including my DIY fabric pumpkins, and some of my very own antlers. Decorating a table doesn’t have to be complicated and overwhelming.
I wanted to continue the look over to the hutch on my wall. Up next came this large galvanized tub , which I set on the top of the dresser, overflowing with all sorts of pumpkins.
Since it is about impossible right now to get real pumpkins, I used a lot of my faux pumpkins that I have gathered over the years.
Next, to add my galvanized tiered tray to the hutch and filled it full of our very own homegrown peaches fresh off the trees. Now, I wish we could use smellivision, because the room smells so amazing with all these fresh peaches!
Its a simple way to add some seasonal decor, that is multi purpose. How great is it that you can eat your decor! I think its pretty awesome.
I am really so happy with how this early harvest tablescape turned out! As many times as I have created fun and unique tablescapes, it is amazing how different you can make them with just a few simple adjustments.
I whole heartedly believe in using the items you already have. Shop your home. This is what I did for this early harvest tablescape. The only thing I did purchase for this was the fabric for the table runner.
Start with one main focal point, whether it be a piece of fabric, or a great painting, or even a set of flowers or container. Use this as a jumping off point for the rest of the space. Mine is the fabric, and now the combination of the galvanized metal tubs and containers, along with my neutral pumpkins, nature inspired elements, and those peaches…oh those peaches.
It is currently my most favorite tablescape, and I can’t wait to sit down with my family and spend a little time together enjoying more of our yummy garden harvest.
Now, what do you think of these fall printables? This set of printables began with the thought of only one, but as I continued, I was pleasantly surprised to see that I was creating a set of printables that would look so awesome together on a wall!
