While visiting my daughter we decided to use some of her yellow and red dishes and things from her yard to welcome Autumn with a lovely fall tablescape. We love fall leaves and herbs and decided to use some of those natural elements to create this tablescape.
Welcome Autumn with a fall Tablescape using natural elements
Wrapping her napkins with fresh thyme sprigs created a natural napkin ring. Don’t you love the mustard yellow and deep red combination for fall?
The centerpiece was made from weeping birch twigs that we found in her yard and placed inside the round glass salad bowl. Layering in with a faux green gourd fresh apples and pears. Green, gold, red and the texture from the faux gourd and twigs really made this feel like autumn.
Welcome guests with fall leaf place cards
Such a fun idea for place cards and bring in more natural elements is to use real leaves. Madeline had made these leaf place cards a few years back and stored them in a book! I love they way she used a calligraphy pen to write our names so pretty on the leaves.
Add sparkle to your fall tablescape
Adding a little sparkle to your welcome autumn with a fall tablescape by using glass goblets and little votive candles. The light flickers off of the glass goblets and leaves a pretty glow for everyone to enjoy.
In this large jar Madeline filled it with dried split peas to add color and texture. An inexpensive vase idea is to use a baby food jar to hold fresh herbs. Small clear votive candle holders were wrapped in leaves and secured with a rubber band.
Add Some Flair
A fun thing to do with small children is gather fall leaves and have them paint them with tempura paints. Madeline used a stencil and painted a few leaves blue and it left little triangles on a leaf for an artsy look. We sprinkled more of them on the table and that added a unique flair.
Here I am smelling the delicious thyme bouquet I picked.
How you you going to decorate your Thanksgiving table this year? Below are a few of my other fall tablescapes you might like 🙂
