Fall Tablescapes Rooted in Nature


Those of you that read my blog regularly know I am a big fan of using natural elements in décor whenever possible.  There is something very welcoming about bringing the outside in. Here are some lovely organic tablescapes to get you inspired.

A fall centerpiece doesn’t have to be made up of typical autumnal flowers.  This lovely arrangement welcomes fall in a quiet way.

This one is more atypical but just as lovely.

Wouldn’t it be fun to have Thanksgiving dinner in the greenhouse?

Gilded pumpkins provide a little element of surprise amongst the berries and succulents.

Plaid is so big this year. Isn't this a fun take from West Elm?

The organic ingredients of tablescape look as if they were just gathered from the yard.

Love the combination of the white mini pumpkins and white hydrangeas with the warm wood tray.

Love this one from my friend Kris from Driven by Décor. Simple vases with gorgeous fall leaves create instant impact.

The last two are a couple of mine  from a few years past.  This centerpiece is a simple arrangement of vintage hydrangeas and fall leaves.

  3. These are all so gorgeous Cindy. I love using clippings from my yard all year long. Your olive branches are so pretty! I wonder if I could grow that here in Massachusetts. I'll have to give it a try just for the sake of my tablescapes!!

    1. I doubt if you could grow olives in Mass unless you brought it in in the winter...but you might be able to grow one in a sheltered location...it is worth a try...why not!!

  9. Cindy,
    100% spot on as far as I'm concerned. I love nature's bounty this time of year, why not use it indoors. Now I just have to figure out if I can wrangle my ladder over to the neighbor's liquid amber and saw off a few of the beautiful branches?! :-)
    I'm with Debra, one of my favorites on your post is your covered bottles set in olive branches. My table is set with "Redfern" my taxidermy pheasant and lots of leaves and pumpkins with my pair of faux antlers mixed in for good measure. The thing I like best is that I can leave it up through November.
    Happy Halloween!
    xo,
    Karen
