Guest Picks: Contemporary Tableware to Greet Fall

Fall is the perfect time for gatherings. The weather warms, the holidays are approaching and the smell of falling leaves is in the atmosphere. I’d love to invite some of my closest friends over for a shared meal around my table — and if I did, I’d want to place the table to the nines. Here are a few ideal choices for setting a table that is fit to greet fall. — Chelsea out of Lovely Really


Marimekko Lumimarja Orange Tablecloth – $59.95

If you’re obtaining a fall table setting together and want to make a statement right off the bat, begin with a gorgeous tablecloth. I adore that the Marimekko pattern on this one, and the color is ideal for fall.


Feast Placemat – $8.95

Placemats may also be so gorgeous when paired with the ideal centerpiece. Incorporate some black in your autumn table with them.


Ripe Kumquat Pitcher – $268

Leave some water onto the table in a gorgeous pitcher in autumn colors.


Venezia Wooden Charger – $29

If you don’t have a pair of dishes that are specifically for the autumn season, consider dressing up your everyday pieces using a charger. The rustic look of this Venezia charger out of Williams-Sonoma would be ideal for fall.


Harvest Pumpkin Tiny Taper Holders

Nestle some tapers into your own centerpiece with these adorable little pumpkin taper holders. I love they are.


Försöka Scented Block Candle – $5.99

Pillar candles are also lovely on a table if tapers are not your thing. These will be so great using the placemats from Crate & Barrel.


Tortoise Napkin Ring – $0.95

These tortoise napkin rings from Crate & Barrel are excellent. I’m hereby proclaiming that tortoise is the new neutral.


Gold-Dipped Flatware – $38

Gold flatware in the autumn appears so perfect to me. And it’s something a little out of the ordinary for the visitors to”ooh” and”aah” over.

Fondant Marble Cake Stand – $128

Cake stands include some height to your table and may be used to serve more than just cake. Fill them with a cheese program.


Amber Organic Dual Old-Fashioned Glasses – $32

The rich color of those old-fashioned glasses has me swooning. Use them as water glasses or to serve up a tasty libation in the table.

Ballard Designs

Greenhouse Cloche

I love interesting centerpieces, and such cloches would look fantastic with a few mini pumpkins in them.


Angenäm Bowl – $24.99

The gold inside of this bowl is right up my street.


Himalayamix Potted Plant – $2.49

Personally, I adore adding a little life to a table with plants or florals. These mini plants out of Ikea are super cheap, and they have a low profile so that they won’t prevent guests from seeing and talking to each other.

Pottery Barn

Faux Oversized Pumpkins – $69

You can never go wrong with a few pumpkins in the autumn. These faux pumpkins are a lovely centerpiece, and you could use them over and over.

Pottery Barn

I’m loving those taller, mercury glass gourds too. They would be amazing next to a candlelight.

I think I may have to find these salt and pepper shakers for my dining table ASAP, whether it’s autumn or not.


Uno White Linen Napkin – $6.95

The Martha Stewart Park Leaves set at Macy’s is so whimsical and wonderful. I love all of it, but I particularly love these serving utensils.
