Traditional

Start with a linen table runner, and add a beautiful floral arrangement made in a real pumpkin( Designed by Belfiore Farm & Floral.) 

Incorporating some brass candle sticks and faux eucalyptus stems gives this a sophisticated look. Simple neutral plates and linen napkins helps keep the focus on the centerpiece. Add vintage crystal stemware to dress up the table for guests.

Supplies:

  • Brass candle sticks
  • ivory candles
  • linen table runner and linen napkins
  • faux, dried or fresh florals. I like to mix them all
  • fresh pumpkin if making the arrangement
  • crystal stemware
  • ceramic charges

Boho

This relaxed style is simple to whip up, allowing you more time to concentrate on your guests. Start with a cotton table runner in some great fall muted colors. Next, add rattan chargers which creates that relaxed layback feel. Using a neutral color palette with your dishes, linens, and candle sticks makes it a bit more modern while keeping it casual and full of cozy textures. Placing a wreath on a cake stand makes a beautiful but easy centerpiece. Adding candles creates that cozy holiday feel.

Supplies:

  • Cotton fall table runner & napkins
  • Handcrafted ceramic ivory and gold taper candle holder
  • Rattan placemats
  • Simple plates and linen napkins in the fall color palette 
  • Wheat wreath used as a centerpiece
  • faux candles and ivory taper candles
  • Simple etched drinking glasses 

Rustic Elegance

Start with a jute table runner, then layer faux and dried florals down the middle of the table. Using white ceramic chargers and linen napkins gives it a more elegant look. Adding ceramic candle sticks with birch covered candles centered down the middle of the table will add a rustic vibe.

Supplies:

  • Jute table runner
  • linen napkins
  • dried florals
  • Ceramic candle stick
  • neutral plates & ceramic chargers
  • faux candles
