September is just a few days away which means we’re closer to autumn’s arrival and my favorite season!
I’m counting down the days until fall, anxious for autumnal hues, a harvest of pumpkins, warm plaid layers, and cozy meals with the flavors of fall on the menu!
In celebration, I’m at the table as part of a Fall Tablescape Blog Hop this week! You can find more fall inspiration and autumn tables from this talented group of bloggers at the end of this post.
For this is an early fall table, I harvested materials for an easy and natural table runner. Endless summer hydrangeas have faded and dried to a papery texture, joining green oak leaves and clippings from the shrubs, faux fall leaves, wooden acorns, grapevine pumpkins and mercury glass votives.
They’re placed down the center of the table, allowing the colors and textures to blend and transition from summer to fall for a casual and organic table runner.
This is an easy method to add a little nature and interest to the table, and one you can use to assemble a runner in less than 10 minutes once you’ve gathered your materials.
Let me introduce you to some woodland friends that have joined me at the table in anticipation of fall’s arrival. . .
Daisy the Fox is ready for fall, dressed for the season and adorned with a plaid ribbon, leaves and acorns.
Chloe the Jack Rabbit hopped to the table. . .
Her whiskers are twitching in anticipation of an abundant autumn.
And last but not least, Mazey the Squirrel is foraging for acorns. . .
And perched on a pumpkin, awaiting fall’s arrival!
Amber goblets are waiting to be filled with Apple Cider Sangria, an easy seasonal cocktail using fresh apple cider. . .
Ideal for tailgating or sipping, just because it’s fall!
Place settings are layered to add color and texture starting with a linen textured tablecloth as a foundation for the table. Pumpkin-colored hemstitch napkins are placed on the diagonal for accent and color, framing natural jute placemats.
And a farmhouse plaid napkin is paired with a butterscotch yellow twill, topped with an acorn branch napkin ring. Bone handled flatware provides some added texture and warmth to the table.
Thank you to Chloe of Celebrate & Decorate for organizing this Fall Tablescape Blog Hop!
