Fall Dinner Party Tablescape Ideas
I absolutely love the variety of tones and textures at this fall table! The muted color palate works well to capture the essence of autumn and the mystique of a setting like Hogwarts. Notice all the details as you look through the pictures… red apples, pinecones, woven pumpkins and fall leaves intermingle with a mix of metal and wood tableware, antique keys and bronze candelabras as well as silver owls, black crows and fall gourds. This dinner party table is truly a delightful mix of textures, metals and organics.
I love how she used wooden crates and antique books to create height in her display, tucking in candles and vases in dark jewel colors for warmth. When decorating for a dinner party, take a look around your house – you may find the perfect piece for your table or serving board in an unexpected place!
