How to create a Fall tablescape Idea using Gold, Peach and Purple colors!
When my daughter Emily turned 26 I decided to have a nice Fall Sunday dinner for the family and there ended up being 17 people when it was all said and done.
Start With The Centerpiece
How to create a fall Tablescape starts with the centerpiece! Outside I noticed peach gold and red fall leaves from the trees and bushes around the yard. I thought they would look so pretty as a centerpiece for the table. Cutting branches and placing them in a large cream colored urn along with some fluffy grasses really made it look stunning! Then I surrounded the urn with lots of peach and white colored pumpkins. I am seriously in love with the peach colored pumpkins!!
For the tablecloth I used a textured throw from Ikea..I love the nubbiness (is that a word?) of it! It is kind of a creamy white color so I think it lends itself to fall.
A little sparkle is always fun to add to any tablescape. I love bringing out my gold chargers and gold flatware to bring in that sparkle. I’ve had these pretty fall leaf salad plates from Walmart for many years now and I just love them! I will link similar looking plates below.
The napkins have all the colors of I was looking for to create this peach and purple tablescape. The goblets that I chose to use are my favorites colors gold and purple. You can see how I have used the gold ones in the this tablescape and the purple Pioneer woman goblets in this tablescape here.
I decided last minute to spray paint the frame of the chalkboard gold…you may remember I used this chalkboard and matching twin one at my daughter’s wedding a year ago and the frames were white. Do not laugh at my feeble attempt to write out the menu on the chalkboard. LOL My other daughter is a pro at this and does a beautiful job…. this is not so great but it was ok.
I served Pumpkin bruschetta, 2 roasted chickens with potatoes, yams, carrots and onions, and a spinach salad. Madeline made creamed peas and two different kinds of amazing overnight bread! Then for dessert I made my Salted caramel chocolate cake!
Here is the tablescape in full glory with all the colorful leaves, colorful goblets and gold chargers.
Here is the gang! There are 3 little grandkids not in the photo…they had their own little table in front of the big table but I forgot to take a picture.
Hope this gives you a few ideas on how to create a fall tablescape using peach and purple for a large crowd.
Looks like y’all have a wonderful time being together. And who wouldn’t as beautiful as it is at the table. Love the menu as well. Thanks for linking up at Farmhouse Friday – we greatly appreciate it!

I think Fall should a Thankful season, period. I too hosted an early Thanksgiving because we were ALL together for a change. I explain on my post.
Thank you Fabby…it is just so fun to use different colors for a Fall Tablescape like purple goblets.
