Inspiration for Your Fall Tablescape

Written by, Bernadyn Nettles

Can you believe Thanksgiving is next week?? My family is hosting Thanksgiving in our home this year so I have been in hostess mode making preparations for the special day.  One of the things on  my to-do list is setting up a nice fall tablescape that includes a pretty centerpiece, whether it be using floral arrangements or other fall-related items to help bring in the autumn colors and give our home that warm, Thanksgiving atmosphere.  I put together some of my own creations working with fall pieces I already had and also included a few floral centerpieces from BloomNation to add some additional inspiration for those of you also hunting for fall tablescape ideas.  Let me know what you think!

Fall and Thanksgiving Tablescape Settings

Below are a few table settings I played around with using some of the autumn decor I already had since I haven't had much time to browse the floral shop and craft stores.  I didn't have much floral arrangements on hand but I got a little creative with what I did have - a few pumpkins, wine corks,  artificial pine cones and artificial autumn leaves. 

For this centerpiece, I used a mason jar and a reused small jar that once held jam.  I placed some wine corks and small pumpkins in them to use as fillers.

The lighting for photos was much better in my living room so I used my coffee table to set up these centerpieces.

I have some old red candles and these candle holders that never get used so I thought I'd whip them out to help decorate for the fall season.

More wine corks in a vase... I guess I finally found something useful to do with them once they were popped off the top of the wine bottle!

For this setting below, I included these reused bottles from a past craft hop and the no-carving decorated pumpkins I made for the fall issue of the Ella and Annie Magazine to achieve this glitter and gold effect.

I decided to throw in some classic pearls and make this fall centerpiece a bit more feminine.

I kept this last table centerpiece simple with just the orange pumpkins in the center on top of a cake stand.

Fall Floral Arrangements

If you are looking for more inspiration on floral arrangements, I added the following images below that may peek your interest.  They are beautiful flowers from BloomNation.  If you haven't heard of BloomNation before they are a flower delivery service that supports local florists through their online marketplace.   They have several flowers to choose from to fit everyone's style.  There were so many I liked.  It was hard to choose just a few.

I chose this one below because it is using a mason jar to hold the arrangement.  Gotta love those mason jars!

I love how the arrangement below is inside of a pumpkin and that the lid of the pumpkin is placed on the top with the flowers popping out.  I also love the feathers that are included in this arrangement.

The next floral arrangement has vibrant colors that really pop for a fall display.

I feel like the following arrangement looks like it just makes the room come to life and will be sure to add some lively conversation to a Thanksgiving table.

Happy Pumpkin arrangement from BloomNation local florist Susan Floral Design for $37.00:

My daughter picked the next flower arrangement to include.  It contains a balance of roses, orchids and thistles which I agree with her, they look "just beautiful!"

Roses, orchids and thistle by BloomNation local florist, Gotham Florist, for $85.00:

I admire the rugged theme of this arrangement below with the burlap wrapped around the vase.  My daughter likes this one because of the large sunflower in the front.

Are you including a floral arrangement on your fall or Thanksgiving table this year?  Which of these centerpieces would you choose?
