In anticipation of autumn’s arrival, prepare a table that seamlessly binds both summer and fall with elegant simplicity.
Something about the return of early fall beckons us to enjoy the simple pleasures of this transitional season, so welcome friends and family to your September table with a relaxed spread that exudes comfort and charm. A centerpiece filled with softly muted hydrangeas captures the fading colors of summer while hinting at the hues of fall to come.
Display seasonal fruit like figs and pears to add subtle touches of pink and green to a neutral palette. Incorporate copper accents for a bit of shine alongside rustic materials like a wooden table and a burlap runner.
Choose minimalist tableware and linens, and bring interest with details like antique measuring cups for use as tea-light holders. Russet leaves atop each setting pull in notes of natural fall finesse.
