Fall tablescapes are the talk of the blog today. I am joining some blog friends to share our fall tables. Every year, when I start doing the purging and organizing throughout our house in August, I get a great look at all the things we have and what I don’t need anymore. The fall and Christmas season are busy on the blog so I am planning out posts way ahead of time. I knew I had a lot of home decor posts coming up and I always start every decorating project by shopping our home. This fall tablescape was no exception. When I came across the Threshold napkins I found on clearance at Target last year, that set the tone for the fall tablescape this year.
Any time I am out and about and come across great deals, I have to pick them up. The Threshold napkins were only $2.48 for 4! When I saw them again this year, I remember finding them and thinking they would be great for a fall tablescape and here we are.
To set the table, I made it easy. (That is my mojo. Who has time for anything else?)
I started with the white tablecloth that I used on my alfresco summer table.
Then, I added my burlap table runner over the tablecloth to give the table a little texture and color.
I used the same charges on the fall tablescape as the summer table.
*Decorating Tip*: I interrupt this blog post for a quick decorating tip: Only buy what you can use over and over again. Things that will go with every season and jives with your home’s decor.
I love burlap because it is so versatile. You can use it during all seasons.
I always use our every day white plates because that’s how we roll. (Unless we are using paper plates which happens a lot too).
To bring “fall” to the table, I started with a wood slice charger. Then, I set the brass planter I got on clearance (and shared on my IG stories) at Target on the wood slice. I added faux hydrangeas and faux candles (so they don’t start the hydrangeas on fire) to the planter.
I grabbed faux pumpkins from around the house and put them around the centerpiece.
Small white pumpkins from our entry table were placed on each plate. I bought the brass napkin rings on clearance last year at Target. Brass is a beautiful metallic for all seasons.

The glasses were clearance finds at Target last year after fall. They are a fun addition to the fall tablescape.
Matt cut down a long spindle we had in the garage to make candlesticks. (We have done this before and I shared that project HERE). I was going to paint these like I did the others, but I really liked the wood with the white candles. These might just remain natural wood (until I feel inspired to paint them. HAHA!).
Tablescapes are always fun for me. They make a typical meal special and more “fancy”.

I can see why you snatched those napkins up when they were on sale last season. They are gorgeous! I’m all about reusing and repurposing so I love how you reused items. Your fall tablescape is lovely!
Thank you so much Alli!

These colours are amazing together and I think my favourite part were the faux hydrangeas. They add so much texture and are still in bloom, so how perfect for fall? Wonderful job. Love it all.
Thank you Sue!
Oh, I love the green and orange color combination! And huge shoutout to you and your ability to find all the great goodies on clearance at Target. One more reason to love that store, right!? 🙂 Thanks for joining in on the blog hop!
Thank you Kelly!
Love all the mix of colors you used, and the various textures. Totally agree with your decorating tip – buy stuff you can use over and over again!
Thank you Jenn!
Lindsay, this table is gorgeous! I love everything about it! I agree, only buy what you can use more than once, I mean really who has room to store any more than that? I don’t! The napkins are beautiful as well as those napkin rings. It all came together beautifully!
Thank you Denise!
