Neutral Fall Tablescape

I thought I'd share a tablescape that I did a couple of weeks ago for a dinner party. At the time, it was before Halloween, and pretty far from Thanksgiving, so I didn't want to go with a lot of traditional fall colors. I wanted to do mostly creams and neutrals, while still having it feel like Fall.


I used a fig plate that had some soft greens and browns layering it with a cream plate and a cream charger.


 White pumpkins made up the central centerpiece with small white pumpkins (my favorite!), pears and acorns scattered around. I love to use natural items like fruits or vegetables when I can.







I also added some serving pieces in vintage brown transferware that I already had.


 I used a plain tan napkin because I was trying for that neutral thing, but if I wanted to change this up for Thanksgiving, I would just use a plaid or floral napkin, maybe with more of the browns and tans, to amp up the "Thanksgiving" flavor.

  3. What a pretty table! I like a neutral look any of time of year but especially in the fall. It just feels like it captures the feel of the bare trees and quiet feel. I like your plate stack with all that beautiful texture.

  5. Sheila, Love your table. This is my kind of look. The whites are so pretty with the acorns and white pumpkins. Those fig plates were a great find! I love the brown transferware too. I have been thinking of collecting it as it's always beautiful for Thanksgiving. Thank you for the nice note on the blog. I do hope you get up to Northern Cal! It would be great to meet up. Have a beautiful Thanksgiving! xo Kim

  6. An absolutely lovely table! I love your fig plates and it's amazing how you can capture the fall feel without the bright orange and yellow colors! A whole new approach which I really appreciate and will try during this transitional time period! Thank you for sharing.
