Don't be Afraid to think outside the Color Palette Box
Let your color palette come from your world. We were inspired by the blushy pinks of a fall sunset. And in turn opted out of the usual color suspects and the result is gorgeous. Blush, Deep Red and layers of warm neutrals.
Infuse Your Surroundings with Accents
Shelves are a great place to add Fall inspired decor. Think vases, bowls, boxes and other knick knacks all in warm Fall tones. Don't have shelving? Coffee tables, mantels and sideboards are also the perfect landing spots for accent pieces.
An unexpected Place Card
Use frames to let people know where to sit. Not only are they such a pretty addition to the table but they can be repurposed time and again or even sprinkled throughout your home later.
Make it Cozy
Throws and pillows are a great way to bring warmth and coziness to the space and an easy way to change up your colors to embrace the season.
Accent with Ribbon
Ribbon is a great, casual but oh so pretty way to wrap your flatware. I use this trick all the time and it never gets old. I purchased this ribbon years ago at a flea market and it’s still one of my favorites – I’ve used it over and over again in different ways as my family has grown!
Lighting is everything
Make sure the lighting in your space is cozy and relaxing yet bright enough for people to see what they're eating. It's a fine balance but adds so much to your party if done right.
Worth the Splurge
Flowers can make or break a table. Splurging on gorgeous blooms is worth every scent. Make those arrangements shine with the help of your favorite florist.
Make Housewares Serve Double Duty
Think about how different housewares can serve multiple purposes. Cheeseboards can add depth and dimension to your table runner, cake stands can be used in varying heights with seasonal fruit piled on top to create a gorgeous centerpiece, pitchers can hold candles or flowers. Those items that you probably already have in your home can add another layer to your tablescape.
A Sweet Takeaway
Don't forget a sweet takeaway for guests. Even a simple homemade goodie goes a million miles in the best hostess ever department.
