This simple fall tablescape is classic and understated whether you’re looking to decorate the dining room or entertain guests.

I just love the look of a set table don’t you? But to be honest, if you’ve been following for awhile, you know I keep things very informal around here. So for this fall tablescape, I wanted it to be simple and understated yet something that you could also replicate if you were having guests over or for Thanksgiving.  Let me show you how I put this simple fall tablescape together using our white every day dishes and adding in some autumnal and gold hues.

I always start by gathering things I already have at home and taking an inventory first. I will usually see from there if I can come up with a coordinating color palette.

I started with white every day dishware and brown woven placemats that I had. I layered it on top of these beautiful blue chargers I got from Amazon.

I had the brown linen napkins already. I knew that I was going to add my gold candlesticks to the table so I decided to complement them with some gold napkin rings. I found these gold metal leaf rings on Amazon as well.

I love to decorate using amber and teal glass bottles so I decided to use those to create a centerpiece.  To add a seasonal pop of color I filled the bottles with faux leaves in rich orange hues.

I love how this looks, a classic way to decorate the dining room for fall or Thanksgiving.

Now you could most certainly add a table runner if you wanted to. I liked how it looked without.

When setting my tables for every day I don’t set with flatware just because it’s less for the kids to play with and get their hands on. If you’re having guests over, I would choose a beautiful gold flatware.

I’m linking some of the items I used below.

    I love brown and blues in the fall – it can be different shades of blue all the way to teal. Your table’s color grabbed my eye. It’s lovely.

    Nicholle – Thanks so much for sharing that your table can be simple and still beautiful. Preparing Thanksgiving dinner is a huge job. Keeping things simple is a great way to help with the stress of it all.
