6 Great Fall Tablescape Ideas:

Tablecloth or Table Runner

  • I always add either a table runner or a tablecloth to my tables.  Some items I have used are strips of dropcloth, old lace curtains, scrap fabric, and butcher paper.  The great thing about using butcher paper is that it is great for kids! It provides a fun place for them to draw or play during dinner, which is always great.  I used butcher paper in my kid friendly fall tablescape.  It was a fun place for the kids to play and even draw, so that they did not get too rowdy during dinner.

A Good Set of Dishes

  • In my opinion I think a good set of white dishes are a great investment.  This way they are something you can use all year around.  I found my dishes on Amazon and they were such a great price!  A great way to make your table look polished is by layering the large plates with your smaller plates.  
  • Update….we have had our white dishes for over a year and have loved using them!  We use them everyday and they have held up wonderfully.  If you want something classic and timeless definitely invest in some.

Interesting Drinking Glasses

  • Adding an interesting set of drinking glasses is like adding jewelry to your table.  I actually found some really pretty wine glasses at a thrift store, for just a buck a piece.  I have used them many times in my tablescapes.  Sadly we have had a few break.  Its quite okay though, since I paid such a small price for them.
  • I also snatched some copper mule mugs last year on sale.  They add just the right amount of color and bling to my table.  I use my copper mugs all the time!  They can dress up or dress down a table depending on how you use them.  The shiny bling of the copper is lovely no matter what.

Tall Items for the Center of the Table:

  • I like to add pitchers, or tall galvanized vases filled with real foliage or faux….really whatever you have.  Just make sure they aren’t so tall that they block your vision of another person at the table.  You want to be able to converse, and chit chat.

Napkins and Silverware

  • Something that I often forget about when I am setting any table is napkins!  This is a great way to add a pop of color or texture to your table. It can be anything from simple store bought napkins, to a pattern, or a simple tea towel.  Add a napkin ring for another instant pop of interest and texture.    I have made simple napkin rings out of book pages or twine.  It is a very simple addition to add to your table and adds just the right amount of texture and interest.
