In the last several days we have (thankfully!) hurtled from the dog days of summer to the delights of autumn, which officially arrived on Tuesday. Temps in the 70s are sooo welcome after the unrelenting heat and humidity we've had. Trees are still green and summer annuals are still flowering in the garden, but I'm ready to move on to fall decorating!
I've been revisiting some of the tables I've posted in the fall, seeing what inspiration I can find for the tablescapes I want to design. I've chosen several that share fall themes but were not designed for seasonal holidays that I thought you might enjoy seeing. Just click on each title to view the complete post!
In Autumn Arrives with Color, a light colored tablecloth block printed in gold was a lovely contrast to the striking salad plates and boldly colored centerpiece. This table revels in the vivid flowers that burst into flower shops and gardens!
I captured the exuberance of the season by bringing the colors of autumn to another tablescape. In Setting the Table for a November Birthday, I chose themes and patterns that Greg would enjoy.
The mix of textures and details in the items that form the center design bring interest to the simplest of tables.
Although I love the vibrant shades of fall, sometimes I want to ease into the season with soft colors.
The tablecloth and rectangular flower arrangement were the focus of the First Tablescape of the Fall.
For an effortlessly graceful tablescape style, add ample doses of copper for Elegance in Blue and White.
The clean lines of the tablescape worked harmoniously with the stylized pattern of the dishware and the more formal setting of the dining room.
What better way to celebrate the uniqueness of the season than by using nature's bounty? Fall Beckons with Leaves on the Table celebrates the changing colors that make autumn so spectacular.
Leaves gathered from the garden are both lovely to look at and easy to do.
Garden harvests can bring more than pumpkins to the table, demonstrated by Falling for Apples.
Apples and plums are piled in a softly tarnished silver bowl.
One of the first designs to appear on the blog, I still enjoy the interplay of pattern and texture in Russet and Olive. (Please forgive the first stumbling attempts by the then newbie blogger/photographer!)
For a casual table, a low bowl filled with grocery pumpkins and pretty leaves from the garden are all you need in the fall.
I hope these tables will provide the inspiration for creating lovely fall tables that celebrate the new season!
Table resources are listed in each post.
