There’s something about the crisp autumn air that brings people together…at the dinner table! The holidays are just around the corner and so are all of the weekends of attending dinner parties and hosting your own. Whether you’re having family, friends or both over, your table could use a touch of fall flair. It’s time to stow away the watermelon table runner and the tiki torches because your table is about to get a serious autumn adjustment!
1. Pumpkin Vase
Have a beautiful autumn bouquet? Instead of using a glass vase, carve out the top of a pumpkin, and paint it a neutral color to create a fall vase worthy of your dinner party.

2. Rose Gold for Fall
As we were saying, we LOVE gold. Rose gold especially. The warm rosy hues perfectly complement the lush foliage that’s unfolding outdoors.

4. Burlap Napkins
There’s nothing more rustic and warm than burlap décor in the fall. This year, don’t limit your burlap to the door wreath and pick up some stylish napkins—don’t worry, they only look like burlap, they’ll still soak up your butternut squash soup!

5. Fall Neutrals
Neutrals are a-okay for all seasons, but you typically see nothing but atumnal colors for the fall. We are in love with the cool and classy whites and nudes this year.

6. Painted Pumpkin Décor
Not your mother’s jack-o-lantern. Choose a color scheme and paint a few pumpkins to attach to the ends of candlesticks. Varying heights and fabulous colors come together for an awesome autumn centerpiece.
7. Twig Table Runner
Bring the outside indoors with this twiggy table runner. Add some painted foliage to complete the look and add texture.
8. Fall Vegetable Display
Nothing screams fall as loudly as farm vegetables. Grab a cupcake display and arrange away for a flawless fall table feature.
9. Gilded Leaves
Leaves? Check. Looks like you’ve got plenty of them. Venture out to your front lawn and grab a handful of picturesque leaves to gild and write your guests’ names on.

10. Sliced Wood Placemat
This idea is so elegant and authentic it’s unreal. For an extra touch of magic, paint the sides of the sliced wood with gold (can you tell we love gold?). Just don’t go chop down the tree yourself!

11. Chalkboard China
What’s more fall than a back-to-school inspired chalkboard touch? If you have old china lying around, revamp it with chalkboard paint and get creative!
