Today I am so excited to be posting my first thoughts about Fall! Since I live in Southern California, I have to remind myself our fall doesn’t arrive until October. Believe it or not, our hottest month is usually September, so it still feels like were are in the middle of summer. But I love fall, and I love tablescapes, so sharing fall table ideas is something I love to do.
I am sharing a few of my fall tables from this year and last. The first table was for a dinner party I hosted for friends, which we appropriately called “Friendsgiving”. It was a really wonderful evening and you can’t imagine how hard we laughed all night long!
One of my favorite things to do when I set a table is to layer plates with charges, placemats and anything else that works. On this table, I used burlap placemats, off-white charges, dinner plates and my Rae Dunn Friendsgiving plates. I went with a very neutral color scheme which I absolutely love. I added white pumpkins and filled my vintage cheese molds with fresh eucalyptus and greens.
I love the colors of this fall tablescape. The apples mixed with the fabric pumpkins are just perfect.
Lately, I have been using a lot of color in my tablescapes. I can’t even begin to tell you how happy it makes me. I just love the pinks and oranges. Of course, you have probably already figured that out by now.
I created this tablescape based on my inspiration from copper. I shopped my house and started adding decor. I even made the place cards with my daughter in law (they are for sale). I think this table is “a balance of color, space, and texture”. I absolutely love it.
One of the benefits of living in Southern California is that our outside dining area is likely to be a big part of our Fall decor. As I mentioned, two of the best weather months for outdoor dining are September and October.
When I set the outdoor dining area for the Fall, I knew I wanted to do something really rustic. Since the only fresh plants I can seem to keep alive are succulents, I decided to go with a succulent theme table setting!
I absolutely love how this came out. I used my large tin vintage platters, aged terra cotta pots, IKEA placemats and my favorite napkins from Kitch Studios. The rustic look feels very fall, even when the weather is really warm in Southern California.
I even set a table for Thanksgiving on our back porch.
I hope today’s blog post has inspired you to have fun with your of your fall decor. I am so inspired by all of the fall decorating ideas I see everywhere and I can’t wait to finalize our thanksgiving table.
