A recent poll I posted in Instagram stories provided a good mix of neutral lovers, those that prefer a traditional color palette, and a few of us who like a sprinkle of our favorite color mixed in. I, myself, am team neutral with a sprinkle of blush. However, I give high regard to those who display traditional fall colors well. With that being said, I had a marvelous time creating ten fall tablescape combinations using both traditional and non-traditional colors.
Ten Fall Tablescape Combinations
First of all, I am in love with all of these combos! I tried hard to incorporate texture and a mix of patterns for interest. To keep things simple, let’s start of soft and build towards a more bolder presence.
Neutral All The Way
The nice thing about decorating solely neutral is the ease of sprinkling in pops of color at a moment’s notice. Without having to completely dismantle your table, one could entertain several different styles by switching out different color plates and/or single accessories, or by just adding a colorful floral arrangement.
Neutral With a Hint of Traditional Orange
Here we have the base that remains neutral but a sprinkle of orange for those who love all things pumpkin. Slightly warmer tones are provided by the natural woven placemat. A neutral plate layered next tones down the boldness of the orange.
Warmer and Bolder
I absolutely love these dinner plates. For those who want more character, I suggest a busier statement piece. The nice thing about layering is the ability to draw attention to detail without one piece over-shadowing another. A pumpkin bowl placed on top of this patterned dinner plate will do just that.
All Things Buffalo Check
We are half way through, what do you think of my ten fall tablescape combinations so far? I’m excited for you to see what’s next!
Black, still considered a neutral, provides a grounding effect and bolder statement. It enhances the colors around it. I know there are more than a few of you who associate fall with all things buffalo check 😉 I love how different each of these combinations are with and without orange. It really just depends on what look you are drawn too. The above photo could be considered all neutral, but sprinkle in orange and you have something much more dramatic.
Coastal Blues for those Non-Traditional
I believe there are just as many soft blue fans out there as there are blush lovers, am I right? To be perfectly honest, I was knee deep in coastal blues myself four years ago! It still draws me in. For some, decorating with soft blues at fall time is a way to hold on to summer. The soft ocean blues here paired with the natural woven placemat will have you thinking you are dining seaside. But, sprinkling in blue doesn’t necessarily mean you love the coastal vibe. The photo below demonstrates a more traditional setting.
My Personal Favorite Fall Color, B L U S H
(as if you didn’t know that already)
Again, blush is considered a neutral. My favorite color combo of all time is shades of gray and pink. They are both considered neutrals, but just like black, gray acts as the grounding platform against the blush. I added a little boho twist to each combo along with a slight mix in patterns. The above photo suggests more cooler tones, with the bottom warmer and a bit bolder.
Was this helpful? I hope it was and I would love to know which combo is your favorite! All items shown in each grouping are linked with lots on sale! Thank you so much for stopping by, and if you missed my last post, click here.
