Non-Traditional Fall Tablescaping
Prefer, non-traditional fall colors? In the photos below, I kept my original coastal decor as is, and added in touches of fall decor, such as the silver fall leaf decor and miniature white and silver fall pumpkins. I couldn’t find any metallic silver pumpkins or leaves so I spray painted those in photos and I added glitter with glue on top. Looks great as a center piece and was less than $10 for table for 6. I also spray painted the pine cones the same way. I found those at a local park.
The styling below will also easily transition into Christmas tablescaping. I’ll simply just remove the white pumpkins and replace with some white, gold or silver Christmas decor. Everything else can stay as is! Check out my fall to Christmas dining room transition here.
I love this one below by Maison De Cinq. This neutral fall decor of earthy tones, silver accents and the fun artichoke accessories for non-traditional Fall Tablescaping is such elegance, fun and inviting.
