What sort of ambience will your fall table have this year? There’s always the cheery atmosphere cultivated by decorating with autumn’s warm, fiery tones; or the sophisticated aura that seems to radiate from gleaming metallics. But if you’re looking for a casual, homespun feel, opt for a subdued palette of neutrals with a few flickers of accent color. Muted tones like straw, cream, khaki, tawny, brown, and espresso play nicely with ember glow, vermillion, gold, sage, chartreuse, or dusty teal.
Start with a seasonal lace tablecloth or table topper that is festive without being formal. The Leaf Harvest Table Linens feature a woven pattern and oak leaf and acorn designs. The Falling Leaves Table Linens have aspen, maple, and oak leaf shapes.
Next, decorate that table! Look for aged ceramic pitchers and vessels to place on top, as well as faux leaf sprays or grapevine orbs. Select a woven basket and fill it with pine cones and artificial fall foliage for an effortless centerpiece. Or, nestle small pumpkins and gourds inside an openwork bowl. Complement your earthy accessories with dinnerware and napkins in understated colors.
