It’s upon us – gorgeous maple leaves; cooler, crisp temperatures; and the return of outdoor entertaining. Yep, Fall is in the air and I’ve got a stunning harvest supper table to celebrate the bounty of the season! Inspiration for this farmhouse table came from incorporating traditional autumn decor, like pumpkins and leaves, but also from fresh florals and linens in jewel tones. Let’s bring the dinner party outside again with festive decor for gathering friends and family.
Starting off with a fabulous tablecloth sets the tone for your table and creates a canvas to build upon. When I saw this harvest tablecloth pattern, I knew it would be perfect as a larger overlay for my dinner table.
Belgian flax linen napkins in a beautiful terra cotta hue pick up the colors in the tablecloth. Bonus that these napkins are machine-washable and don’t need to be ironed because they already have a soft, lived-in feel.
Pro tip: To get out wrinkles on linen, simply spray with water and smooth towards the edges. Or, if you have a steam cycle on your washer, use that and hang over a chair to dry.
The Place Setting
Glazed celadon stoneware dishes with a hand-applied patina and rubbed edge give an artisan feel to this dinnerware. Starting with a natural honey-colored rattan charger and ending with appetizer plates depicting autumnal leaves, these are layered for a perfect touch.
These watercolor leaf plates come in a set of 4 and each are different, so your guests get a variety of Fall!
Using different textures and materials for the centerpiece adds dimension, depth and interest to any table. Rose gold glass pumpkins and gold mercury pumpkins, wooden gourds, and beaded wire pumpkins hurricanes lend themselves to the theme without being gaudy.
Florals are a blend of both real and faux roses with blackberry accents. A weathered galvanized tin vase graces the middle of the table while antique jewel-toned votive holders are scattered amongst the pumpkins.
Switching pillows is such an easy way to change the look of your table. Outdoor cherry red Sunbrella tassel pillows add some flair to the table while rust-colored chunky knit throws on the end chairs add a bit of coziness to the crisp evening air.
Cheers to a happy and bountiful Fall season!
