The temps are dropping. Go ahead, decorate your dining table for fall. You can enjoy the mellow mood of fall for weeks and weeks before changing out for winter!
To get even more bang for your buck, some of these centerpiece ideas work equally well on a console table, buffet, or coffee table. Let’s look!
White, wood, and a hint of gold is a no-fail neutral combination for fall. Start with a round tray, low bowl or basket. Add whitewashed orbs and white and gold pumpkins. Tuck in some frosty greenery-- and you’re done! (With a couple of changes, this grouping could easily transition to a Christmas tray, and even into the new year.)
Many options are now open to you if you’re not a fan of orange in your fall decorating: this lovely centerpiece is built of whites, wood elements and greenery (and green pumpkins), all arranged on a great tiered tray and flanked by tall distressed white pumpkins. Hmmm, this loaded tray would also work well on a kitchen counter...
Are fall florals more your style? We’re loving all the plum and pink combos we’re seeing, and this artful blend of deep violets, dusty pink, and peachy-hued blooms carries it off perfectly. Add in some white and deep claret-color pumpkins--and some pomegranates as well--accented with green and rosy pink glass, and it’s a lavish tribute to the understated extravagance of fall.
More ideas for non-orange fall: mint and teal pumpkins blend wonderfully well with rosy and coppery accents.Now, a cake stand elevates your vignette, both literally and figuratively. On this wood slice stand we placed a petite vase of blooms and berries in subtle tones of pink to red to violet. We paired it with a positive message in whitewashed wood and a copper pumpkin, and popped the glass cover over all. Think how you could replicate this look!
Another cake stand idea: one taller, one shorter, and each topped with a fat pumpkin in white or teal encircled with garlands of fall berries or a eucalyptus wreath. Simple and stunning!
And for all you fans of orange who just can’t wait to bring out your orange pumpkins and florals, one way to update your look is to add in a jolt of black and white. A jaunty striped runner would do it, or a black and white buffalo check pumpkin. The distressed whites work great with the pine cone trees.
Whether you’re a traditionalist or eager for innovative stylings, you’ll find lots to love in the newest fall looks for your table.
