Fall colors are always so appealing to the senses when the seasons change. The earthy tones of brown, green and orange are just so homey. Check out this fall flowers tablesetting for some ideas that you might be able to translate to your home.I left the tabletop bare because the pretty brown finish fits my color scheme and began to layer my tablesetting. I used four cotton Jacobean print placemats in peach , green and other coordinating colors. Then I placed the white dinner plates on top of brown woven rattan chargers. Then I placed shiny olive green cloth napkins with bronze acorn napkin rings on the dinner plates. The napkins’ color pops against the white of the plates, and the acorn napkin rings are a great reminder of fall.You could also use these placemats for other seasons of the year if you picked up on some other color in the placemats’ design and used different napkin rings.I also used clear glass pedestal goblets and pewter flatware to round out each placesetting.For my centerpiece, I used some very pretty orange burlap faux flowers I found at my local craft store. The burlap flower petals were so intriguing–the rough texture of the burlap reminds me of fall, and the flower stalk would work in a vase or laying flat on a surface as I have done in this tablesetting.
I also used a light, feathery faux fern in bronze on the bottom of the burlap flowers for a contrast of shapes and weights.So– when you are ready to have your friends over for a relaxing dinner, decide how you want to set your fall table and take off! Find placemats and napkins that work with your dishes. Napkin rings are nice but not necessary, as are chargers. Look for fall flowers–real or faux–for your centerpiece and everything will come together. Enjoy!
