Maybe it’s the nostalgic air of a fading summer or the hurry of harvest to put up the last of the bumper crop, but autumn seems to hold a special sentiment that draws us home for a spell. Celebrate the season with these ideas for fall tablescapes, each winning in its own special way.
1. Farmhouse Flavor
In a farmhouse-style eat-in kitchen, a simple runner featuring homespun stitching detailing adds just the right amount of warmth, as do subtly striped linen place mats. Choose only one or two bold elements to anchor the setting without overwhelming the space. A set of Alberto Pinto Plumes plates featuring handsome, strutting roosters and a centerpiece overflowing with fall flowers offer plenty of visual appeal and are a natural choice for informal autumn gatherings. Fill miniature baskets with acorns or pecans, and place at each seat for a final touch of country charm.
