Happy Fall! Today I’m sharing a few Fall and Thanksgiving tablescapes and table decor options, and tips on how to create your own with items you may have at home! My plan was to put together one or two options, but as I got going I found items around the house that worked. So, you now have four to choose from..ha!
Fall Tablescape – Option 1
I think tablescapes can be really fun to put together and they don’t have to be complicated at all! You can mix and match items you have on hand around your home and can even find (free!) grass or plant clippings to use from outside! The key things to keep in mind are the scale of the items – you want a good mix of taller and shorter items, to work in layers – build on layers and textures with a table runner, greenery, candles, vases, etcetera, and then try to stick with a color scheme – reds and oranges or greens and wood tones work really well for fall!
It can also be fun to add in some metallic accents, like gold or copper napkin rings or candlesticks! You can also use seasonal produce that you may have lying around; I used mini pumpkins and gourds here, which work well for fall, but you can use apples, pears, pomegranates, squash…there are so many options that can add in different colors and textures and they don’t have to break the bank.
Fall Tablescape – Option 2
When I put these together I had Thanksgiving in mind, but it’s funny because that was a week or two ago before it started snowing in Colorado. Now I am leaning more towards a Winter/Christmas-y feeling for Thanksgiving. We’ll see how I feel though in another 2 weeks! The weather here in Colorado can change so quickly!
Fall Tablescape – Option 3
Another tip – explore outside for materials that you can use! I clipped the grass from our bushes out front and it worked perfectly! There’s no use in buying grass from Hobby Lobby when it is right outside your door!
Fall Tablescape – Option 4
Below are a few items that are incorporated into the options that are available in stores:
This plaid table runner is nice because it is neutral enough to work with different color schemes, but the plaid pattern is fun and adds some interest and pattern to the table.
These napkin rings are also beautiful and add a pop of gold to the table.
Do you usually keep Thanksgiving more Fall themed, or do you switch over to Christmas decor in November?! Let us know in the comments below! I really think you can’t go wrong either way.
I hope you enjoy these simple and beautiful Fall and Thanksgiving tablescapes!
