Fall Tablescape Ideas

It’s September and apples, pumpkins, and colorful leaves are calling.  I’ve added fall touches to my home even though in Florida, we aren’t through with summer.  I am now trying to capture that feeling of autumn beauty.  Natural decorations can make your home look really welcoming and really do freshen up your home for fall.

One of my greatest pleasures is enjoying a beautiful table set for the season. In the next few months, we’ll celebrate Halloween, Thanksgiving, and just the joy of fall.  Are you ready to set a pretty fall table? I’m sharing a few ideas with beautiful examples of a wonderful fall table. Read More

A Simple Early Autumn Table

My home has many coastal elements. Every fall I am faced with decorating for autumn using my colors. I use more textures, tans, and browns. I add deeper toned colors as the season progresses.  I look for softer shades of typical fall colors. I also love using turquoise in the fall with tans, browns, and golden tones. Officially it is autumn on September 22nd, but today I’m adding a few coastal autumn colors in the dining room.

Thanksgiving Table for Two

Thanksgiving is a national holiday celebrated on various dates in the United States, Canada, Brazil, Grenada, Saint Lucia, and Liberia, and the sub-national entities Leiden, Norfolk Island, and Puerto Rico. It began as a day of giving thanks and sacrifice for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. 

 

 

This year I will not gather with a large group for my Thanksgiving celebration.  Instead a simple meal for two will be shared at my table. My inspiration for my small Thanksgiving table is the thrift store angel I got last year.  The ceramic angel holds a pumpkin and the words “Give Thanks” adorn her skirt.  Perfect for my Thanksgiving lunch.

October Autumn Table

It’s fall in central Florida, and the big cold spell that went across the country brought slightly lower temperatures and a low humidity.  It’s been really beautiful days with highs in the low 80’s and maybe even 79 degrees F with blue skies.  We’re getting a little rain from the tropical stom in the Gulf going over Mexico, but it’s nothing bad.

Cream & Brown Autumn Table

One of my favorite things is my reversible cream and brown table runner I found a few years ago at the thrift store. It was new in original wrapping. Today I’m using the cream background with brown print side on a white tablecloth.  I started with a wood charger and a cream plate with brown accents on its flared edges.  I added a wonderful vintage salad plate with autumn colors in its botanical print.
