Since we are about to enter autumn, I thought it would be nice to talk about some secrets and ideas that help me a lot to create a perfect autumn table.

Autumn is a very colorful and calm season of the year, it is also full of special and beautiful fruits and the cold also threatens us. So with all this in mind, we can make use of some ideas to make a beautiful seasonal table, each in their own way or leaving it to their liking.

I really like making centerpieces with natural elements, I think they bring a lot of life to the table, and even more so if it is in autumn, since we can take advantage of all those colorful leaves that are falling, reddish branches to create authentic natural decoration on the table. But a table is not a center, on the contrary: many different elements can be arranged, with and without volume, to make it special. The center may or may not be present.

Preparing a beautiful autumn table does not have much of a mystery, but there are different techniques or tips that are worth keeping in mind, ideal for making the whole table in harmony and for each piece to fit perfectly. What do you say? Do you dare to surprise your guests with a most beautiful autumn table? Let's get to it, I leave you with the advice and ideas, and that does not mean that you should follow all of them, play with them or try to practice with the ones that you like the most or that attract attention to make the table your own and your style.

Surprise with rustic blue colors

If you use an unexpected or surprising color palette on your table, I am sure that you will immediately captivate the attention of your guests. I invite you to use a rustic or washed blue, which you can combine with other more neutral colors but fill the table with that peace and joy that blue always brings us.

For inspiration, take a look at this fall table in the photo. It is presented with different shades of blue, the main one being that of the tablecloth. It is enhanced by other shades of blue and by the white, gray or cream shades of the mini cocottes, plates or other table elements. Those serve as unifying secondary colors.

A very important factor in an autumn table is to add some natural contrast , such as this centerpiece made with natural red branches.

Use colors that create contrast

Contrast plays an important role in making certain pieces shine or in generating that joy in the eyes that you are looking for when presenting the table.

You can find contrast by playing with the color of the crockery, the pots... or also by arranging natural elements in a color that stands out from the rest. You will see that the table suddenly comes to life, even if it is with a good touch of color in a single point.

Arrange a simple white tablecloth and you will have the perfect setting to enhance a garnish of fruit and flowers, or make the crockery or any other element stand out. The lime color scheme with burgundy, orange and white is ideal as it reflects the classic colors of fall. But there are other colors, such as gray, which you can combine or cream, which are neutral and go very well with everything, so in them you can make any piece of more intense colors stand out.

A very important aspect is to bring the attention of the guests to the interior of the table with a central piece.

Keep a palette of soft neutrals

With white, cream, light gray and gold colors you will be able to highlight the naturalness of the table and fill the environment with peace, elegance and calm. To add a touch of color, you can help yourself with some printed cloth napkins, for example, or let the food be the protagonist with its color and smell.

Other ideas could be to bring white to the center of the table and display small pumpkins as a natural element of decoration, or make a centerpiece with dried autumn foliage with small details in gold.

Decorate the table with seasonal elements

If you want to bring autumn to your table, use pineapples, chestnuts, pumpkins, classic green, red, yellow or orange seasonal leaves... You can play at using a wooden trivet too... Everything that brings autumn to the forest to the table, it will be to make an autumnal table.

If you use simple colored crockery, you will have a wide range of possibilities, and you can afford to add color to the table with placemats, cloth napkins and a central jug full of colorful flowers, ending with small pumpkins, pineapples or other scattered fruits. by the table

Combine modern elements with rustic

This fall table combines rustic and modern elements. From different chairs to giving a touch to a rustic table with modern plates and cutlery, or adding a gold-colored piece to add elegance.

Small details make the difference

Something as simple as a string, or putting some seasonal elements on the table, make a difference to our day to day. Some pineapples, a string, a note, an envelope with a chocolate inside, some seeds scattered around the table as decoration... There are countless small details that will decorate the table, and if you use raw, orange or toasted tones, that detail will smell of autumn.

Use a monochrome palette

Using a monochrome palette always brings a more modern look and if you're having a hard time setting up your table, this is a good way to start - just pick a colour, I personally love orange as it's a very characteristic color of the fall. Once you have chosen the base color, you can accompany it with more neutral colors such as ivory or white, to avoid the general appearance of the table being overwhelming. Doesn't the color orange seem ideal for an autumnal table? Also try to combine it with chocolate or with a lime tone and pure white. You will get a very charming combination.

I hope these little tips will be useful for you this fall. I'd love it if you leave your own comments, whether it's your ideas to add to these or what advice you want to apply to your table.
