It is really feeling (and smelling) like autumn around our home. Not only is it time for our autumn tablescape blog hop, but I have been happily busy in the kitchen baking up some yummy recipes for next weeks Pumpkin Week.
I managed to sneak in some time to set this simple autumn tablescape for this week’s autumn tablescape blog hop. Every day this week a new group of very talented table styling bloggers have been sharing their vision for the perfect autumn table and you can find all the links below!
Given the hub of activity going on in the kitchen, I wanted a calm and uncluttered table where I could sit down for a delicious meal of my favourite cool weather comfort foods, like this Maple Roasted Butternut Squash Soup!
When I was at the grocery store last week I spotted these pretty plates. The rich tones of plum, orange and a muted green really speak to the colours of fall.
I used the dark wood chargers I have had forever and layered them on top of my rattan place mats.
A miniature pumpkin adds a bit of whimsy and colour to each place setting, yet took no effort at all.
These placemats that worked perfectly well with this patriotic summer table, also reminded me of the farmers fields still dotted with feed corn yet to be harvested later this fall.
Simple napkins and stemware finish off each place setting.
A soft gray linen table runner provides a backdrop for a lowkey centrepiece made from hydrangeas from my garden.
This big wicker pumpkin I have had for several years and always use it in somewhere throughout the house when decorating for fall. I spruced it up with a couple of felt leaves left over from this autumn Mason jar project.
Red velvet cupcakes decorated for fall will make a light dessert.
I am so happy I decided to do a simple autumn tablescape this year. I am all for an elaborately styled table, but this season it just felt right to keep it low key. I think it still reflects the autumn season as it settles in to cooler temperatures but warmer colours!
Now it’s time to check out all of this weeks autumn tablescapes! All the links are below so grab yourself a beverage and settle in for lots of seasonal inspiration!
