One of the easiest ways to add seasonal decor to your home is via your tabletop. Setting a transitional table is a natural way to bring changes to your home without spending a fortune and committing to expensive pieces. I often approach my tablescapes the way one would a monthly calendar, so for September I’m showing 7 ways to bring early Fall to your tabletop.1. Apples – probably the single most identifying visual of September is apples. On this table, I’ve incorporated apples and pears in a perky centerpiece, nestled into a large serving bowl from Pottery Barn. Scattered at the foot of the bowl are bits of apple potpourri, adding an early Fall aroma to the room.2. Root vegetables – these Farmer’s Market salad plates from Williams-Sonoma bring a touch of Fall color to your table while forecasting the coming harvest. Imagery of beets, carrots, kale and onions dance playfully across the dishes.3. Rattan chargers – woodsy elements are a great way to transition into Fall. These rattan chargers are from Pier 1 and are the perfect backdrop for the a harvest theme.4. Fall floral – every table needs fresh flowers and for early Fall, the addition of cabbage leaves and berries brings just the right note to a colorful arrangement.This table is decidedly transitional, so I’ve opted for reds and greens, rather than a full-on Fall palette of oranges and golds.5. Tortoise shell patterned glasses – in keeping with the woodsy feeling introduced by the chargers, tumblers in a tortoise shell pattern, also from Pier 1, complement the tableau.6. Leafy-toned candles – the pillars used here are in two shades of green, both channeling the feeling of the not-yet-turned foliage.7. Hint of copper – for napkins I’ve layered a translucent pear green over a berry red, then punctuated the color mix with a lovely copper napkin ring. Napkins are from Pier 1, rings are from Crate & Barrel.For underpinnings, my base cloth is a white paisley tablecloth from Ralph Lauren and the natural linen runner is from Williams-Sonoma. These are classic essentials that I use over and over.
White tuscan vases are from Pottery Barn.In the coming months, these colors will be replaced by the brilliant and broad range of a classic Fall palette, but will be revisited come December. For now, I’m enjoying the transition into Fall and the celebration of its bounty.
