In this post: If you’re looking for romantic fall table decor ideas, create a beautiful and elegant fall tablescape with velvet pumpkins.⇒
If there’s one thing I most like to share with my readers it’s how to approach decorating in an unconventional way.
This is all the more so when doing a tablescape, since it’s only set for one occasion.
Often I like to use elements on my tables that go beyond dishes and stemware and today I’d like to look at using velvet pumpkins in an elegant fall tablescape.
I’d like to thank my amazing sponsor Plush Pumpkin for providing the gorgeous velvet pumpkins seen in this post and around my home.
Before we get to the centerpiece of this table which is what drove the overall concept, let’s begin with a look at the plate stack which pulls from the colors I knew I ‘d be working with.
I generally start with some kind of metal charger and this time I went with silver.
A clean white dinner plate comes next and is topped with these wonderful market vegetable salad plates that come in an assorted set of 4.
(See the resource list at the bottom of the post.)
The underpinning for the table is a lovely blush pink ruffled throw I’ve been really crushing on lately. You can expect to see it a few more times this season and probably on into the next.
For stemware I went with my favorite glen plaid crystal goblets. I use these over and over as they work with so many different looks. I also have the champagne flutes, as well as high balls, and double old fashioned glasses in the same pattern.
My napkins are embroidered white linen that I bought years ago with a matching tablecloth. I used my most glimmery crystal bracelet napkin rings to maintain the look of holiday elegance.
But the true stars of this table are the stunning rich toned velvet pumpkins from Plush Pumpkin. I chose pinks, berries and greens and I find their sheen and soft plumpness to be truly very beautiful.
I tucked roses and dried hydrangea into the presentation because I feel tables look best with fresh flowers, even when there are other elements that are highlighted for seasonal or decorative flavor.
The footed silver bowl is a new addition to my collection and one that works beautifully on the table. I love the way the pale blush pink and pure clean white offset the rich dark berry tones.
The shimmer of silver and crystal also helps to accentuate the contrast with the deep and lush pumpkins.
I’ve done several tablescapes this fall and it’s hard to choose which one to use for my actual Thanksgiving dinner. You can see several linked below if you need more ideas.
I’ve got one more to share with you next week and then perhaps I’ll put it to you readers to vote for the final winner!
