Today, we’re excited to share Easy Fall Tablescape Ideas! Have you started decorating for Fall yet?
We’ve been working to get the house Fall ready for a few weeks now. I love Fall and I usually start putting a game plan together at the beginning of the summer.
I know some people struggle at times to transition their summer to Fall decorating ideas though. Especially, when it’s so hot outside and doesn’t feel like Fall at all.
Most of my friends and family members start decorating and preparing their homes for Fall just after Labor Day. In fact, I was in the craft store last week and there were so many people buying Fall decorations.
It’s really exciting to run with an idea you’ve been waiting to try for a few months.
One of my favorite things to decorate around our home is the breakfast nook table and the dining room table. I’ve shared many times before, we live in an open concept home. As soon as you walk through the front door you can see the dining room, living room, and part of the kitchen almost immediately.
It’s the reason I try to keep the dining table festive all season long even if it’s just with a seasonal centerpiece or store bought mums.
Fall decorating in the breakfast nook is also fun because the entire area is filled with windows and having the table decked out makes it feel like we’re celebrating Fall all over the house.
Dressing your table in seasonal style doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive at all. You can choose to leave out your best dishes for a festive feel or create a seasonal centerpiece that steals the show!
Here are a few things to keep in mind when you’re creating and looking for easy Fall tablescape ideas…
Use a Seasonal Color Palette that Complements Your Existing Home Decor
As you guys know our home is mostly shades of white, shades of gray with touches of camel. I’m a neutrals girl through and through!
We use these gray chargers and white plates in almost every season because they complement our existing home decor so well.
It’s one of the easiest ways to achieve a cohesive look in your home no matter what the season. Decorating with a cohesive color palette will also help to stretch your budget leaving you to spend your money on colorful accessories or fun seasonal finds.
Speaking of budget friendly finds, my sweet aunt who also loves all things equestrian let me borrow these vintage plates for the breakfast nook tablescape. Each plate is different!
Vary Texture and Soft Elements on an Easy Fall Tablescape
We’re constantly looking for seasonal fabrics or blankets at thrift stores, antique malls, estate sales and craft supply stores throughout the year. Now is such is great time to buy Fall and Winter inspired fabrics before they get picked over. Seasonal fabrics instantly help to change the look of an easy fall tablescape.
Bonus, if you find a fabric that has a variety of colors in it, use those colors to help pull additional shades into your seasonal color palette. Layering fabrics like flannels, wools, burlap, cashmere, cable knit, velvet and leather will help to create a cozy feeling in your home and on your Fall tablescapes too.
Layer in Bits of Nature
When it comes to layering bits of nature into your easy Fall tablescape and centerpiece ideas, look no further than your yard, local nursery or floral picks aisle at the craft supply store.
Fall mums have recently arrived in Florida! I know sometimes it’s hard to decide if you should buy them this early in the season. Especially, if you live in the South. Cotton, magnolia leaves, sticks, goldenrod, leaves, pine cones, coleus and natural deer sheds are usually plentiful this time of year in most areas though.
Just make sure you’ve cleaned these items well and they are free from dirt and pests before you bring them inside.
Create Ambiance on an Easy Fall Tablescape
Use unscented candles, votives, mason jars, lanterns or hurricanes to create a warm soft glow that will make your guests feel both relaxed and celebrated.

I hope these tips have helped! Creating an easy Fall tablescape is all about celebrating the seasons and decorating with what you love most.
Part of what makes Fall such a special season is the slower pace before the hustle and bustle of the holidays begin.
