Is there anything more exciting than designing your Fall table? We here at Casas Adobes Flower Shop think not. And yes, we’re biased. We’re totally inclined to thrill at the prospect of making a table look as gorgeous as possible, all in hopes of pleasing the people who are gathered there. Today, we’re talking tablescaping. Naturally, we start with the centerpiece and work our way out from that. Why? Because the centerpiece is the single item on the table that captures the mood and spirit of your soiree. It reflects whether this is a formal dinner, a casual one or somewhere in between. It expresses the season or the occasion. Everything else follows suit.
Including your tablescape–or the how the rest of the table is designed and decorated. Let’s say you select a centerpiece like Sunflower Bounty Cornucopia, traditional Fall decor that can be used all month long and on the big Thanksgiving day itself. The feel of this is warm and inviting, with a touch of grace from the roses and the garden from the sunflowers.
We recommend using faux apples, pumpkins, gourds, pods and corn alongside this piece and down the center of the table. Weave in votive candles in Fall colors as an accent and to illuminate the length of your table. Pop in cinnamon sticks or clove for that autumn aroma, and introduce texture through a fabric table runner, luxurious napkins or rattan chargers. Let your centerpiece inspire the rest of your Fall table and you can’t go wrong.
