Happy November! With the holiday season fast approaching and Thanksgiving just a few weeks away, I’m sharing 5 easy tips that will hopefully inspire you to create a beautiful fall tablescape when hosting family and friends.
5 Tips For A Beautiful Fall Tablescape
1. Incorporate New With The Old
If you have fine china and flatware, I highly suggest you use it, especially for holiday meals. Do not let it sit in your cabinets collecting dust. I always pull out my fine china, sterling flatware and crystal for special meals but incorporate new elements with updated salad or dessert plates to give my table a re-fresh. Mixing fun, new and updated patterns with your older pieces makes your table more exciting and interesting and gives you something to recreate each season. Check out the seasonal china at William-Sonoma and Pottery Barn for some ideas.
2. Personalize It
There is something so special about a table with monogrammed napkins and I am lucky to have a very talented friend in Dallas who does the most beautiful monogramming EVER and she happens to have an Etsy shop. Mia Davis Designs at Dogwood Hill was so kind to embroider these absolutely stunning gold ‘S’ napkins for my fall table. Made of high quality linen and monogrammed with a gorgeous interlocking single initial in a vintage vine font, these elegant linen hempstitch napkins are the perfect finishing touch and sure to take any special dining event to the next level.

3. Seasonal Flowers Are A Must
Creating a lovely fresh flower centerpiece does not have to be expensive, but it is an element that will take a table to next level gorgeous and I never entertain without fresh, seasonal flowers. I picked up these flowers from Trader Joes and spent less than $20. If you want to have an arrangement that looks professionally done, do not plop your flowers in a vase filled with water. Use a low container and a water soaked oasis floral foam bricks. Carefully trim each stem and start arranging in the oasis then fill in with greenery. It takes a little practice but trust me…its not hard and the result is so worth the time. Chrysanthemums, Purple Alstroemeria, Asiatic Lilys, Dahlias, Roses and berries are all in season and gorgeous in fall colors.
Tip: Make sure your arrangement is the proper heighth so that it doesn’t hinder guests from seeing each while sitting across the table.
4. Bring In The Outdoors
Fall foliage is beautiful and it is a simple way to bring the outdoors in. The Japanese Maple leaves in my flower arrangement are from trees in my yard. The rich bronze and green leaves provide perfect fillers to my arrangement. I also used magnolia leaves on my sideboard. Just like you use fresh garland at Christmas, bringing in outdoor elements to your fall table really makes an impact.
5. Add Seasonal Elements
Adding seasonal elements to your table theme or centerpiece is an artful way to celebrate the season. For my fall Thanksgiving tablescape, I simply added glass amber pumpkins (similar here) to my sideboard and gold leaf napkin rings (similar here) around my monogrammed napkins. For Christmas, I will add mercury glass ornaments and my whimsical McKenzie-Childs Reindeers.
