My velvet pumpkins have once again graced my table this fall and so has the color pink. The blush cinderella pumpkin is new this year and she quickly snagged center stage. All pumpkins and florals used in my early fall blush tablescape are faux. In this post, I have pulled out a few staple items from years past and added some new pieces. My hope is to inspire you to create something similar. After all, copying is the highest form of flattery <3 Most items featured will be linked.
Early Fall Blush Tablescape
It has been so long since I styled a tablescape, and I enjoyed it so much! We recently sold our large kitchen table of twenty years for something more quaint, and it fits so much better in our small breakfast nook. Thus, inspiration for an early fall tablescape emerged.
With my new blush pumpkin already nestled in the wooden pedestal bowl, I began pairing items that add warmth and contrast.
- Natural fiber chargers
- Velvet and linen faux pumpkins with real stems
- Brass candlesticks
- Faux floral stems
- Gold flatware
- Linen napkins
Items such as these white dinner plates and gold flatware are staple pieces and grace my table season to season. I picked up these cute appetizer plates this year from Kirklands and I love their unique color. As you can see, they pair nicely with blush, but would also compliment more traditional fall colors too. I chose to take layering to a new level this time around. Each place setting features a charger, dinner plate, salad plate, appetizer plate, and napkin.
Faux Pumpkins and Stems
I believe there is much beauty in faux items these days. These velvet pumpkins are handcrafted with natural stems and offer exquisite charm wherever they are placed. I have been collecting mine from Love Feast Shop for four years now, and they are a joy to bring out year after year.

Of course, I adore real flowers and always encourage using them when entertaining guests. However; using faux stems allows for ease when creating displays, because you can bend and twist the stems without breakage. I had these light pink branches from last year’s Christmas tree decor. I stuck those and a few faux eucalyptus stems as a nest for my big pink pumpkin in the wooden pedestal bowl.
I have always wanted chairs that I could adorn with seasonal wreaths or ornaments, and last winter we finally scored these beauties. For fall, I added these wooden tags from Krumpet’s Home Decor. They can be used for several purposes like: gift tags, tied around a napkin, wall decor, and like you see here on the back of a chair.
