This is the simplest fall table setting. I just pulled together a few things and now it is "fall" in my kitchen! The key word is "simple."
And here is my fun table! You all have seen everything before except for maybe the fall touches. What do you think? Remember, this is for a casual meal with friends. Nothing fancy.
It does not take a lot of accessories to make a pretty table! Take a look at what I have done.
I use my Italian Countryside China and Oneida stainless steel for every season. Same with my green napkins...all year long.
With just a few items I turned my my kitchen table into an autumn tablescape. I love easy. And I don't like to spend cash every time I want to create a special table.
I mention this because I want you to know that it is not necessary to have a large checkbook or stacks of china and flatware to create pretty tables. Creativity is what you need.
I began with Dollar General placemats. Really. I know...fancy. ha ha. Color choice will determine how vibrant your table is. Some people like soft fall colors and others like the more vibrant fall colors.
I love persimmon and orange colors for fall.
My olive green napkins (Tuesday Morning) were perfect to blend in with my fall table. But then greens are like a neutral for me. I use these green napkins with lots of other colors too.
Traditional Oneida Sheraton flatware.
Now for the pretties...I added some decorative fall leaves and branches. Some of the leaves are the exact shade as the placemats.
I put a large faux pumpkin on top of my pile of leaves. How simple is this to do? While I used a faux pumpkin a large real pumpkin would be especially nice.
I have lots of small pumpkins, but for this table I chose to go with just one over sized faux one.
Here are some closeup photos. The berries just pop against my charcoal candles.
It's almost time to eat! Let's get this party started!
