Today is the first day of fall, and right on cue the leaves are starting to change colour where I live.  It’s the perfect inspiration for a beautiful fall tablescape.

We have a forest behind our house, and every year there are a few maple trees that are the first to change colour from green to beautiful oranges, yellows, and reds.  The changing leaves inspired this table.

We have a pergola over our back patio and I thought it would be the perfect place to set up our fall tablescape.

Hanging Leaves and Lanterns

One of my favourite details, and the starting place for this tablescape, are the pretty leaves hanging over the table.  I went for a little walk with my puppy in the morning and collected them in the woods.  I strung some fishing line from the pergola and tied the leaves on to it.  Since there was a little breeze, I also tied a few nuts -as in nuts and bolts, onto the end of each piece of fishing line to help weigh it down a little.

The leaves looked so pretty blowing in the wind.

Fall Tablescape Centrepiece

For the table, I started with a white runner down the middle and layered a burlap one on top of that -find some more inspiration from Wayfair’s beautiful table linens.  

Next came some small branches and leaves.  Then I layered on some pretty pumpkins, birch poles, and candles.

I love the different soft colours of pumpkins.

Place Settings

Next I added in the place settings.  I used my wood round chargers for a real rustic look.

I also used simple white plates and gold cutlery, along with some amber glasses I’ve had for years.

On everyone’s plate, I layered a simple linen napkin, another pretty leaf, and a little white baby boo pumpkin.

With the sun shining, a gentle breeze, and view of the forest this is the perfect spot for a fall dinner.
