Fall Table Decor Ideas for Your Dining Room

I just transformed our dining room from summer to fall. I can’t wait to share the fresh and faux fall table decor items I used!

Have you ever mixed fresh and faux? I do it all of the time, especially when I am setting a table. The table decor in our dining room is new and different and I love it.

Make it Pretty

A New Look in Our Dining Room

Fall Table Decor Ideas for Your Dining Room

Don’t laugh but I feel like this year’s fall decor feels more grown-up. The colors are a bit more intense and regal. I know you are probably laughing by now, but I really like the look of the dining room. There is copper, burgundy, green, pink, and orange.

More grown-up colors. Right?

All of the colors all work together so well. Plus, the style of the table is elegant but also a bit rustic, but it is not overdone. It’s simple with a pop of deep, rich color.

When you look up close, you can see the rich colors in the dinnerware, flowers, fruit, and pumpkins.

Mixing Fresh and Faux Table Decor (the Scatter)

What I like most about this table is how we mixed fresh and faux decor!

The fresh items are the flowers, figs, and plumcots (which must be a hybrid of plums and apricots). The faux items are pumpkins, small metal roses, and pomegranates.

And don’t worry, I promise to taste the plumcots today and share my thoughts on Instagram stories later today!

Mixing fresh and floral items is something we do all of the time. Often I make floral arrangements with fresh and faux flowers. I have never read that you shouldn’t do it and even if I had, I wouldn’t pay any attention. You know me, I never follow the rules!

You might already know that we refer to all of the extra fresh and faux decor on the table as “the scatter”. I truly believe that this is what makes a table really special. More times than not we use fresh fruit! Don’t you agree that the scatter is the jewelry on the table?

It’s fun to decorate the entire dining room and not just the dining table. Here are a few vignettes also styled for the new fall look.

Fresh Floral Arrangements

The flowers are from Trader Joe’s and I mixed four different colors of roses (two different shades of pink and orange), Safari Sunset Protea (the dark burgundy flower), and seeded eucalyptus.

You can see in this overhead view that the four different colors of roses work perfectly together. Don’t be afraid to mix colors. I am pretty sure there was a time when pink and orange did not go together! That is not the case in this house as that might be my favorite color combination ever.

  1. Love it Leslie. You really have such a knack for this and a wonderful and creative eye. Question for you. Do you decorate your dining table for the “season” or just when you are entertaining?

  2. Leslie – as usual I love what you did in your dining room! I didn’t know the tablescape items down the middle are called scatter ;)! Love your color choices with this one especially ;)!

  3. Beautiful Table. Love the colors & those chargers are absolutely beautiful! Love them! Thanks for the inspiration!!

  4. Beautiful Table. Love the colors & those chargers are absolutely beautiful! Love them! Thanks for the inspiration!!

  5. I didn’t laugh or think you’re silly. Upon opening the first picture my brain said, “now here’s a fall color scheme I can wrap my head around.” Doing fall in Florida has challenges but doing fruits and rich color is great because it balances out the intense heat and vivid color of a Florida August. The air of August and September here is heavy so beachy decor starts to pale and feel washed out but the heat is too oppressive for orange and red.

  6. Beautiful! I absolutely love the combination of roses, pumpkins, and those gorgeous candlesticks. Such a beautiful table, Leslie! Those wine glasses are stunning!
