Simple Ideas for Fall Table Settings

It is hard to believe that fall is right around the corner.  The changing of the seasons always brings new beauty and reflections of the complexities of nature.  By the end of summer, I am eager to see the transformation of the colors and textures that come with fall.  Just as spring and summer bloom vibrantly with so much beauty we can enjoy in our homes, fall brings a similar display of warmer tones that are so wonderful to incorporate into your house and on your tables.  I know it might seem crazy, but I am already planning my fall decor for this year. Today, I am sharing a few of my table settings from last year with some Simple Ideas for Fall Table Settings for daily use, for small or larger gatherings or even for your Thanksgiving table.  I am also sharing a few products I am loving for this season (at the end of this post).

With fall, cooler temperatures also come along so we really enjoy entertaining in the fall.  Our smoker gets busy at this time of the year!  I just started this blog this past October, so some of my very first posts were of some of our fall table settings from last year.   I have learned a lot more about taking my photos since I got started, so please bear with me on some of these images.

Casual Fall Table Setting

I had so much fun pulling this one together.  I found these adorable turkeys at Cost Plus last year so that was my starting point.  Some of these pieces are still available this year so this would be easy to recreate.  To see all of the details of this table table setting, CLICK HERE.

Really believing in using natural elements in each table setting I create, I had fun using my own herbs grown in my garden as part of this centerpiece.  By the end of the summer, my herbs are growing like crazy and I can’t use them quickly enough.  I end up giving so much of them to my neighbors and friends.  Most don’t think about using them in your floral arrangements or in centerpieces, but it works really well.  Not only is it a fresh look, but it also smells wonderful!

Fall or Thanksgiving Table Setting with Velvet Pumpkins

Again, wanting to include natural elements in my centerpiece, I started with this amazing planter filled REAL moss.  It worked really well in lieu of flowers, especially since this table was set several days before Thanksgiving.  All I did to complete the look was to add in the brown velvet pumpkins and a few other fall accessories.  To see all of the details, CLICK HERE.

Contemporary Halloween Table Setting

I created this quick and simple table setting for a small dinner we hosted right before Halloween.  I wanted it to have a Halloween theme without it being too cheeky so I just played off the typical Halloween color palette of orange and black.  Super easy!
