Setting a Beautiful Fall Table

I love entertaining and dressing up my dining room table for guests. No matter how big or small the event is, I enjoy designing a beautiful centerpiece and setting a table that coordinates with it.

Fall Centerpiece Ideas for the Dining Room Table

Inspired by last year’s fall centerpiece idea, I used all of the same autumnal greens, florals and berries in my favorite centerpiece container for the dining room table.

The vintage toolbox.

I love this toolbox.

I found it at an antique store in Vermont for like $15. It was such a great deal!

This toolbox has gone through several seasonal looks this year.

It started with this gorgeous Thanksgiving centerpiece idea.

Then I tweaked it to make this beautiful Christmas centerpiece idea.

After the holidays, the same toolbox transitioned to this amazing winter centerpiece idea for the dining table.

Then it transitioned to spring with this centerpiece idea for the dining table. Since the florals were neutral and gorgeous enough, I kept it through summer.

And now, this same toolbox has two new looks this fall.

I made this one with pumpkins.

But here’s the design I’m using for the season.

I love those cabbage roses, don’t you?

With the fall centerpiece done, let’s decorate the dining room table.

Simple Fall Table Setting Ideas

Last year, I played around with a few different options for my Thanksgiving table.

I designed a rustic fall table setting idea with lots of pretty fall colors.

Then I toned it down a little and focused more on neutral florals.

But when Thanksgiving arrived, I decided to go with a wintry neutral vibe. This one was my favorite and was a huge hit with the family.

Last week, I shared a similar tablescape using a lot of the same items. You don’t have to break the bank creating different tablescapes.

Use what you have and try to mix things up.

A few key items can go a long way creating different looks.

So I tweaked a few things and achieved a whole new look.

For this tablescape, I kept my gorgeous wood farmhouse table exposed instead of covering it up with a table cloth.

To add some warmth, I layered this jute table runner underneath the vintage toolbox centerpiece. I love this table runner and use it a lot in my tablescapes because it adds organic texture and dimension.

For the table settings, I layered this cedar branch placemat, rattan charger, and my everyday dishes.

My favorite piece is the placemats and I use them often too. They add a boho, garden-inspired vibe to table settings regardless of the season.

I found these gorgeous neutral fall green napkins at the Christmas Tree Shops a few weeks ago. That green is perfect and can be used in more than just fall.

And how cute are these moscow mule mugs? I love how they compliment the cute pumpkins like these that I added to top off each place setting.
