Don’t you just love a beautiful tablescape? I love creating an elaborate tablescape “for show” and then a simple one for everyday life. I always start with my white dishes because they are a blank slate. You can add all the color or keep it neutral….whatever your heart desires! I actually have two sets of white/cream dishes and then I have our white wedding china as well. Did you get a china set for your wedding?
One place that I go to for tablescape inspiration is Pinterest. I love looking at weddings for color combinations. Check out my tablescapes board here. You can also find so many beautiful tablescapes on Instagram or by doing an online search.
This was a very inexpensive tablescape that I created as an IG challenge. Several decor accounts did a fall inspire tablescapes on a $20 budget. I used a whole bunch of greenery (several different types of eucalyptus) that I already had on hand. I did purchase the silky piece of fabric, the brass candlesticks (thrifted), and the brass vase (thrifted). I was going for an elegant look and I love how it turned out.
Let’s look at another version that is very similar, but I added pumpkins for fall.dd
What You’ll Need
Creating different tablescapes is fairly easy when you have a few neutral key pieces that you don’t have to break the bank for. I use budget-friendly dishes for my tablescapes because these are the actual dishes we use every day. Something else that is super cheap is the flatware….or should I say plastic ware? The gold flatware is actually a plastic set. Such a good find and they look expensive! I always have some greenery on hand, as well. My favorite is eucalyptus. I have a few different versions and they are all fake. Another staple is neutral placemats or chargers. I use my water hyacinth ones all the time.
Past Fall Tablescapes
I created a very simple tablescape for Fall 2018. This was the first fall that I decorated our home for and I was just getting started and comfortable in my home decorating style. I still love the stacked pumpkin look. I’ve recreated it with real pumpkins as well. But here for this simple fall tablescape, all the pumpkins are fake.
For Fall 2020, I went pretty simple so far. I used my dough bowl and filled it will apples. Yes, they are fake. I added a couple of springs of dark berries and some faux eucalyptus. You defintely could use all real instead of faux. Then I added vintage gold candles sticks with drippy candles. The rest of the elements are the same….white dishes, gold flatware, clear glasses.
I hope you’ve been inspired by the different tablescapes I’ve created over the years. It’s fun to experiment with super fancy and really simple. Once you have a few neutral staples, you’ll be able to create so man different looks with just changing the colors. Until next time friends….or should I call you Treasure Hunters? (Since my name is Truemans Treasures). 😀
