early fall

tablescape ideas

Are you feeling ready to decorate for Fall yet? While my heart is heading there, outside says a lot differently. I still can’t find pumpkins where I live in New England, so for now, my decorations are headed in a different direction! This Early Fall Tablescape reflects what’s more readily available— sunflowers, hydrangeas, and apples.

Ideas and Inspiration

My theme, for now, surrounds the bountiful season between summer and fall. The colors are more reminiscent of the end of summer, and what’s occurring right outside my window here in New England with everything muting a bit.

Although the colors are fading outside, this is still a season of abundance, and I wanted to bring that into the room! The flowers were arranged from inexpensive Trader Joe’s bouquets. It still surprises me that I can fill my entire home with beautiful flowers for less than the price of a throw pillow!

Apples are a recurring theme this season. While pumpkins are nowhere to be found in my area yet, we have plenty of apples. I have a printable, and some recipes involving apples for you later this week!

The Pomme Basket is a reader and Instagram favorite every fall. It was from Arhaus five or six years ago and sold out. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to source one that has wording like this.

This tablescape is a variation of my favorite standby. This time around I added seeded eucalyptus, which seems to be easy to find this year, and a kraft paper runner.

Apple orchards are a great source for deer sheds (antlers a deer drops or sheds naturally ). My dad found one of these antler sheds in an orchard. The others are faux. The table runner consists of live seeded eucalyptus and faux crabapples. I love the juxtaposition of using real natural elements and faux.

I layered my beaded white plates with these striped napkins. The darker wicker chargers provided some contrast to the lighter wood of the table.

And that's it! Early Fall decorating doesn't have to be complicated or expensive. Tap the link below to read more and follow along with me on Instagram @ninahendrickhome for more!
