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 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.

Having a beautifully set table just makes a meal that much more special. And what meal is more special than Thanksgiving? I’m showing you how I made this simple Thanksgiving place setting for your guests. It’s mostly free, and you can put it together very easily, even if you’re someone who isn’t super crafty.
I like going with a neutral, warm color palette with mostly whites, tans, oranges, and browns. Add some fresh greenery down the middle of the table and a few candles throughout to add a glow.
Thanksgiving is probably one of my most favorite holidays ever! For me, it’s all about the sides and the leftover sandwiches the next day. This sweet potato casserole is my favorite and something I look forward to all year long. I’ve lightened this recipe up, and it’s perfect for those who are dairy free or vegan.
