It is September and even though Fall isn’t officially here for another three weeks, I thought it would fun to teach you How To Make A Neutral Fall Tablescape.
When your blogging friends invite you to be a part of a Fall Ideas Tour, how could you turn them down, right?
I will share their blog links and ideas at the end of my post . You will definitely be inspired by their talents.
So, let’s get started on How To Make A Neutral Fall Tablescape…
Here is my breakfast nook table all set up for a cozy Fall meal. There are just two of us (hubby and me), so I set my table for two.
My tips on How To Make A Neutral Fall Tablescape are:
*Choose a color scheme. I am using my Grandma’s Franciscan Ware to start a color scheme.
*Choose a theme. In this case I chose Fall. As you can see, my only real Fall components are pumpkins. AND they are in the same tones as my dinnerware.
*Decide if you want to add layers or keep it simple. I like layers, so I have a crocheted table cloth. A vintage floor heater grate as a table runner. From there I added accessories for depth and texture.
*Create a focal point. My focal point are my stemmed candle holders. Then I went out from there.
Other ideas for How To Make A Neutral Fall Tablescape could be…
Gather dried leaves, pine cones, candles, faux floral stems, vintage books (to add height), wooden beads, crystals, real bird nests, twigs, ceramic birds, etc… Whatever you like, layer it on your tablescape.
Now, this does not mean you HAVE to add or layer everything you have collected. But it gives you a base to start with.
It is fun to add rustic with crystals, gold with silver. Be a little daring and enjoy the process.
Simply add a few at a time. When you are content with how it feels, then you are done.
Not everything is sitting on a book or on the floor grate. By using my vintage books, the pumpkins are at different heights, causing the eye to see everything at a glance.
Have you already created your Fall tablescape yet? I would love to see what YOU come up with.
