Fall is traditionally the time to celebrate a bountiful harvest. Put that bounty on display by using beautiful fruits and vegetables in a variety of colors and textures to create a lavish centerpiece that spills across the table.
Candles and metallic accents complete the design and add a soft romanticism to a tablescape. The mix of florals includes antique green hydrangea, peach Campanella garden rose, peonies, Chocolate Sunflower privet berry, magnolia, pieris, dusty miller, Agonis mixed with dried pods and pheasant feathers. To accent the florals, Forage and Flower used lush green mood moss mounds, a xerographica air plant and candlelight with the mossy green tapers and low gold votives.
Plaid throws and napkins set a classic tone in this elegant, traditional table spread ready for a Christmas party. Gold plate chargers and flatware add a luxurious touch while a green garland trimmed with pomegranates and pinecones add a natural feel.
White and green is a universal palette that can transition nicely into post-holiday decorating, especially if you remove stronger holiday hues such as red. Karin Jeffcoat of Cote Designs, a floral and event studio in Aiken, S.C., filled small urns with fresh flowers, including white hydrangeas and dainty Star of Bethlehem.
Combine rustic and elegant decor for an original and stylish holiday look. DIY blogger Ginnie Leeming of Hello Little Home styled this holiday table. Keeping the centerpiece simple with flameless candles and a handful of glittered pinecones, Leeming really let her chalkboard, which she decorated with gold and white chalk marker and topped with a gold berry wreath from The Home Depot, do the celebrating with holiday shine and sparkle.
After the holiday plates, platters and placemats are stored away, add a new element of greenery through fresh flowers and topiaries. The lemon cypress topiaries and Star of Bethlehem in urns provide a touch of green, whether on a table or on a mantle, says Karin Jeffcoat of Cote Designs, a floral and event studio in Aiken, S.C.
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.
For a casual breakfast tablescape, or a kid’s table, designer Sande Beck started with the brown basketweave casual chargers and layered it with green dishes and botanical melamine plates. The white linen placements work with a casual or dressy tablescape, and the woven placements can be easily wiped off. The Moscow Mule mugs are a fun vessel for drinking coffee or juice.
A casual tablescape designed by Sande Beck for the Thanksgiving holiday uses brown basketweave chargers and napkin rings, green plates, a melamine botanical print dinner plate, green candleholders and a turkey decorative piece. It can be used for breakfast or serve as the kids' table.
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.
Wintery white vintage dishes set the table for post-holiday meals and entertaining. Karin Jeffcoat of Cote Designs gathered paperwhite bulbs and pinecones, then added a hint of moss to assemble this casual, organic dining room centerpiece.
This tablescape is the perfect mix of edgy and organic thanks to matte black chairs, textured tablecloths, rose-colored wine glass and floral centerpieces. As a nod to their contemporary art museum venue, the bride and groom also formatted the place cards like gallery placards.
To update a wreath for the winter, use white paint and fake snowflakes, like New York City interior designer Eduardo Rodriguez of The Designer Pad did for this wintery tablescape. He upcycled pinecones, which are dipped in white paint for a shimmery effect, and arranged them in terracotta pots that he painted white and gray. The rest of the pots hold colorful candies and cookies for a casual Scandinavian-inspired winter get-together.
