Create a Colorful Outdoor Tablescape for Fall

While the fall season means cooler days and cozy days spent indoors, it is also the perfect setting for a romantic outdoor table. With falling leaves, and a seasonal palette of rich tones, outdoor spaces really come to life during autumn. In your yard, channel traditional tones of the season, such as orange and red, enlivening with shades of turquoise and magenta. The result will be a vibrant fall tablescape that is as fresh as the fall crisp in the air.

Colorful Outdoor Tablescape for Fall

The ideal afternoon hideaway can be found under the simplicity of a shady old tree on the verge of losing its leaves. Before autumn blows her final pre-winter breath, host a gathering outdoors that celebrates the colors of the season.

On this colorful table, floral designer Amanda Heer painted pumpkins in metallic shades and added a mist of gold and copper to tone down the hue. “This year, bright pops of blue with orange lighten up fall tablescapes,” she says.

Try these simple tips to integrate a fresh fall feel in your table setting:

1. Turn to bright shades: Pink, purple, and turquoise may not seem like fall colors, but when paired with vibrant tones of orange, they create a fall palette that is fresh and fun.

2. Use fresh flowers and leaves: Embrace the beauty of the season by sprinkling fallen leaves as accents, or creating a bed of leaves underneath your outdoor table. Single flowers picked from the garden will further enhance the fresh, natural feel.

3. Incorporate rustic elements: A burlap tablecloth, and farm-inspired utensil holders add a rustic touch.
