This tablescape for fall started out with the centerpiece and one of my favorite styling tools, a fish poacher! If you like the idea, head over to this post where I shared a vegetable centerpiece for fall in one. The size of a fish poacher makes it perfect for adding flower arrangements. Here’s an affordable one on Amazon – Stainless Steel Fish Poacher and at this price you can paint it if desired. I placed some faux florals inside, along with small velvet pumpkins in this early fall tablescape.

After I created the centerpiece (which took about 10 minutes) I laid a simple white linen ruffled table runner out for a soft look. For the faux flowers I’ve gone with soft peach and gold tones of late summer dahlias and roses along with pale green lambs ear.

There is beauty in faux or manmade, just as there is in nature and I embrace both. The juxtaposition of silky velvet with the organic rustic real stems adds so much beauty to a vignette.

Each place setting started with an oversized white charger. They are then topped with family dinner and salad plates from Royal Copenhagen that is perfect for the fall.

This time of year calls for candles and vintage candlesticks and I’ve collected brass for a long time. The patina on these vintage candle holders calls to me and takes away some of the glitz that you’d find with new.

Instead of real baby boo pumpkins I’ve used faux, that came from the dollar store and I painted with chalk style paint. A simple antique monogrammed linen napkin tied by a gold ribbon coordinates well. I hope that you enjoyed the velvet pumpkins early fall tablescape.

    GORGEOUS table, Janet. The first post I ever read of yours was on making the chinoiserie pumpkins, and I made about 20. I’ve never met a pumpkin I didn’t love. Thank you.

    1. Thank you Miche! I did that craft several years back, and am happy that you’re still here! xo

  4. The feathers on the velvet pumpkins are such a great added richness. I must look for some feathers!
