Design Candy: Fall Tablescape Inspirations

24 Nov

With Turkey Day just around the corner I’ve been scouring the web for some fresh Thanksgiving tablescape / table setting ideas. Some of what’s out there though just reminds me of dusty fake flowers and knick-knack overload so this search was actually a little harder than I thought it would be. Here’s what I did find and I’m loving all these fall table designs.

This design from Fine Living is elegant and inviting. I love that the table isn’t too cluttered or sparse.  The amber and earthy hues exude warmth while the green and red accents give just a hint of pop.

Painted pumpkins seem to be all the rage and this design from HGTV incorporates some delightfully unexpected elements like the white rose. I’m not too crazy about the place setting, but the centerpiece is really fun.

Here’s another table setting from HGTV that plays with a tone on tone theme. I’m not sure what the fluffy looking plant is but it softens the setting while making a big impact.

Few people’s names are as synonymous with household design as Martha Stewart and here are some of her takes on  Thanksgiving decor. Did you notice the salt and pepper holders!

This setting is really DIY friendly. The addition of the placemats takes a typical place setting from everyday chic to holiday status.

Celebrations at Home created this tablescape and while it’s more suited for a wedding than an at home celebration, many of the elements can be brought to a more casual level. The wood containers with amaranthus, flowers and candles would look stunning on their own.

Dwell Modern Tablescape created something totally unexpected and it works so well. I’m loving that they combined the painted pumpkins with decorative vases. The black and white patterns, surprisingly,  don’t overwhelm the eye and the allow the food to infuse color into the scene. And where did they get that little peacock? I want them!

And finally, after bearing through the really annoying ads on the site, I’m glad I found this  Epicurious Tablescape. The arrangement of pears, cranberries, acorns, figs and (I think) cookies remind me of a candy boutique and I just want to taste everything.

I’m not quite sure how we’ll be decorating our Thanksgiving table at my mom’s house this year, but I’ll be sure to post some pictures. Happy Gobble Day!
