Are you enjoying the beauty of the autumn season in your neck of the woods? Here in the mountains of British Columbia, Canada, our fall landscape includes a lot of coniferous trees (evergreen) mixed in with the deciduous (leaf) ones. With that in mind, I created this fall tablescape which focuses on some of the natural items found in our local area at this time of year.
I began by creating a garland type centerpiece down the center of the table using faux evergreen boughs and leaves along with real pine cones and birch log candleholders.
The tealights in the birch candleholders and the battery-operated string lights I tucked into the garland add the perfect ambiance to the table.
Although I didn't use a tablecloth, there are still multiple layers for each place setting which include a burlap placemat, a green table runner (laid across the table) and a faux cedar placemat.
A wood-look charger, an orange dinner plate and a brown salad plate complete the dish stack.
Green and brown plaid napkins were set underneath a round wood slice which held a pine cone and a leaf.
I made placecards with my guests' names and taped them to the wood slice at each place setting.
A brown mug and a glass goblet were chosen as the drinkware for the table.
My copper flatware coordinated well with the other elements.
For some extra embellishment, I made these swags for the chair backs using more of the cut up cedar and leaf garlands.
This type of centerpiece with the repetitive garland is my favourite...
... because everyone at the table gets a similar view and no sight lines are blocked.
It might take a bit longer to create but the ambiance it provides is well worth it.
This nature inspired fall tablescape would also work well for the winter season if you changed out the leaves and pumpkins for red berries and/or snowflakes...
...and the way time is flying by, before we know it, the winter season will be upon us! Let's enjoy fall while we can!
Thanks for visiting!
