1| Utilize the Outdoors – Use branches of leaves in place of flowers, twigs tied around tea light holders or vases, acorns as vase fillers or pine cones as place cards. This gives your table a natural feel without having to spend a ton.

2| Add a feminine touch – Lace or vintage handkerchiefs paired with amber glass mixes warm tones with soft touches.

3| Add height to your centerpieces with books – Centerpieces with varying heights are very appealing to the eye. Use books you already have to create these varying heights.

4| Use a flannel sheet or blanket as a tablecloth – Fall immediately evokes feelings of fireplaces, cozy nights, and cabin getaways, so create a table that emulates those feelings. Instead of spending extra money on a tablecloth, use a flannel sheet or blanket you already have.

5| Decorate with Unexpected Colors – Who says fall tablescapes have to be confined to orange, gold & red tones? Bring in some cobalt blue or plum colors to make it pop.

6| Keep It Simple – Keep it simple by sticking to neutral colors and classic serveware.

7| Use stained CD grates or boxes to create a long centerpiece – Fill it with pumpkins, candles, leaves and moss.

8| Add some pizzazz with spray paint – Urban Grace added a little glam by just adding some metalic paint to regular pumpkins.

Hope this inspires you to create your own cozy fall tablescape!
