A wedding is a celebration of starting a life together, so what better time to celebrate than in Spring? For an airy and fresh table setting, opt for a damask table runner and a clean, white table cloth. Potted plants are more natural than constructed arrangements, so juxtapose the natural and the polished with bouquets of white roses and potted greenery.

Who said that gold was just for Christmas? This glowing fall tone will add a quick touch of glitz and glamour to your dining area. For a beautiful table base, highlight your table’s center with the Exotic Oriental Tablerunner in gold.  Next, bring the outdoors indoors by dotting dried fir cones and dainty twigs around your table runner. If you’re feeling extra crafty, you can even spray paint them gold! Add some soft, glowing candles and let the warmth of the gold decor radiate.

Keep glassware plain, simple and sparkling and let the stunning center be the talking point.

The Minimalist

More of a monochromatic diner? This minimalist fall tablescape is all about texture. Start with a plain white, embroidered table runner to add a vibrant freshness to the fall weather. I recommend this stunning chic jacquard piece, which, with a soft, whimsical texture adds an instant lift to your table.

Now: let’s get contrasting! Keep your place mats clean and dark, leaving the texture of your table to do the talking. These spiral place mats feature a fine circle embellishment, which compliments the cream tones of the table runner beautifully.

Now you’re base layers are ready, it’s time to add some center pieces! Faux squashes and pumpkins really add to the Autumnal vibe; just keep it clean and monochrome! Throw in a few clean, cream flowers and some candles and you’re ready for Thanksgiving!

Remember the color wheel that you studied in school art class? Well, it’s about to come in handy! Contrasting colors are made for each other, which is why you should certainly inject a touch of purple into your Fall tablescape. Purple and Orange are a match made in heaven and it is the equal combination and contrast of these two colors that make this table decor so striking.

Let’s begin with a table cloth in a rich purple tone, such as this Velvet Sparkle Tablecloth in purple, which wouldn’t look out of place in a palace! Next, add these rich orange embroidered leaf placemats, which, with hand-embroidered leafs, are a must have for your Autumnal dining table.

Plates and bowls should be kept to a orange and brown palette and draped with striking purple handkerchiefs.

The center of the table should have a warm and comforting aura about it. I suggest using a soft beige table runner, such as this, and topping it with a plethora of faux berries and flowers in rich crimson and magenta tones. The more the merrier! Add candles consecutively down the length of the table and watch the warm glow of fall become materialized in front of you.

Undoubtedly, burnished oranges and burnt reds are the first colors that come to mind when it comes to Fall and this tablescape embraces this palette wholeheartedly. Transform your table into an instant Fall wonderland with this Handpainted Floral tablecloth in rustic orange.  Add simple white chinaware dotted with plain, black napkins and topped with a leafy embellishment.

Adorn the centre of your table with wooden-based decorations. Think wooden baskets of berry-dotted twigs and small, flower-topped logs. One thing’s for sure: keep it rustic. And don’t forget the candles!

So whether you choose to decorate your table bohemian-Fall or minimalist-Fall, rustic or rich, the warm and comforting feeling from dining at this seasonal-appropriate setting will be enough to keep you warm until summer. Although a jumper still may be needed! So get those candles out, look in the local forest for pine cones and blood-red berries and get tablescaping!
