Buck the trend of pumpkin and chocolate brown this fall, and try on a more unique and woodsy palette. Shades of forest green, gray and cranberry red add warmth and richness to this outdoor fall tablescape.
A touch of metallic around the holidays always adds a festive vibe. Bring some sheen to your fall color scheme by introducing dishware with metallic rims. While silver is always more popular, gold and brass are great options for adding warmth.
Sunflowers aren't just for summer. Bring a golden look to your fall table with freshly cut sunflowers. Group bunches together in bundles of three or four to bring fullness and texture to the centerpiece.
Here's a great tip for adding an aromatic touch to your table: As dinner is wrapping up, bring hot pies out to the table on cake stands and cut the first slice while the pie is still hot. The scent of the pie will work as a candle, teasing guests' palettes for what's next on the menu.
Add a festive touch to the seating area with a handmade organic garland. This all-natural version is made with a mix of twine, magnolia leaves and acorns. For an unexpected update, metallic paint is brushed onto the magnolia leaves.
Looking to put together a fall dinner without any major cooking or prep? Pick up a rotisserie chicken from the supermarket and add your own garnishes before guests arrive. This offers the taste of something homemade without the fuss.
