Around this time of year, I start collecting inspiration for all of my fall projects. I realized after the last few months of staying closer to home just how much I missed heading into a store to gather ideas for the seasonal themes and hues I use in my photos and content. So when my friends at Christmas Tree Shops andThat! invited me to see all that’s new for fall I was excited to take some time to browse and hunt for fresh ideas that would inspire my seasonal palette.
The ever-changing assortment makes for a treasure hunt-like experience when you pop into Christmas Tree Shops andThat! and I feel like I struck inspiration gold when I saw all of the fall décor organized by different color palettes. While I love the traditional warm tones of Fall décor, I like to think outside the box and bring in unexpected pops of color to create interest when I’m styling a table. I spotted some lush velvet pumpkins in soft lilac and deep burgundy tones and used those as the starting point for a bright fall tablescape! A good tip for creating depth in a table centerpiece is to vary texture and scale of your objects. I used the velvet purple and burgundy pumpkins in a few different sizes and then balanced them with green ceramic pumpkins and smaller faux pumpkins in more natural tones. I love that you can reuse the faux pumpkins in other spaces around your house after the table setting is done! To give some natural elements to the collection of faux pumpkins, I tucked in sprigs of fresh seeded eucalyptus that I grabbed at the grocery store. It fills in the spaces between the pumpkins to tie them all together — the combination creates tons of depth and interest. Fall in New England always reminds me of farmhouse style, so I used a simple green and natural striped runner from Christmas Tree Shops andThat! underneath the pumpkin centerpiece to soften up the bare wood plank table. For the place settings I mixed my everyday white dishes with black and white check chargers from Christmas Tree Shops andThat!. I love how they have a farmhouse feel balanced with the graphic black and white contrast that makes the dishes pop! To bring in the natural green tones of the runner I used a set of mossy green napkins from Christmas Tree Shops andThat! that had a playful white trimmed edge. I tied each napkin up with some tonal green ribbon that plays off the fun velvet pumpkin collection in the center of the table. Spending so much time at home this year, little festive details like this seasonal-inspired table bring me so much joy and get my creative juices flowing for the months ahead!
