Decorating with fall decor doesn’t have to be complicated. I’m sharing an idea for decorating your table with shades of orange, bronze, and gold. If you’re looking for inspiration or planning a fall dinner party, this fall tablescape would be a great place to start.
Fall Decor | Decorating Your Table With Shades Of Orange
It’s September 18th, Derrick’s birthday, but this post isn’t about him. (Sorry D) However, I’m saying the date, because by now the leaves would have started to change, I would be wearing a sweater and boots. But, according to the weather, we’re still in sandal season. What this means is, you have to dress in layers. In the morning, you start with a sweater, maybe even some booties. But by the end of the day, it’s short sleeves and sundresses.
All things fall!
But forget the weather. It’s fall, and that means it’s time to decorate for the season! Celebrating a new season means a change of decorations and seasonal food ideas. So for all those pumpkin spice lovers, pumpkin everything, and more pumpkin love, this is your season. While I’m not a huge fan of pumpkin, we’ve made some pumpkin recipes I love. Like our Spicy Pumpkin Hummus is a fave, as well as our Pumpkin Spiced & Iced Cocoa with Roasted Marshmallow Creme.
Last year we created an outdoor Harvest party (shabby chic style), which we could technically still do as long as this weather stays. This year we’re moving more into sharing tips on hosting dinner parties, big or small. I’m also working on moving out old decor items I’ve had for years and years and replacing them with more modern pieces.
Using Shades of Orange
For this Fall Tablescape, I went with a lot of orange hues. I also mixed in some gold and bronze. It’s an interesting mix, but it turned out well for this dinner party idea. The color combined well with this color pattern, then I finished this tablescape by adding a pop of green for a simple centerpiece.
When I spotted the Real Simple salad plates at Marshall’s, I knew I wanted to use them. I was inspired by the variety of oranges, gold, and bronze colors in this blue plate. Using this salad plate was the inspiration behind pulling this complete look together. When I spotted the dark orange glassware at TJ Maxx on clearance, I knew they would work great here. I could have gone with gold silverware, but the bronze gives it a nice contrast.
Breakdown of what I used in my Fall Orange Hues Tablescape
- Gold Chargers
- Orange/Gold Cloth Napkins [TJ Maxx]
- Patterned Dining Plate with Gold trim [Home Goods]
- Always Be Thankful Salad Plates from Real Simple [Marshalls/ TJ Maxx]
- Bronze Silverware [Wayfair]
- Glassware [ TJ Maxx]
- Green Eucalyptus Stems for centerpiece [ Pier 1]
- Assortment of orange glass pumpkins + plus pumpkins [Home Goods]
- Teal glass pumpkins [ Home Goods]
- beige cheesecloth [craft store or online]
This tablescape would also work for a Thanksgiving table setting as well. It’s one you can use all season long. I like it because the pumpkins have a place on the table, but they are not the focus. When I spotted the gold and orange glass pumpkins at Home Goods, I fell in love with them. I love the two-toned look, and when they’re not being used in a table setting, they sit on our bronze bar cart with my Rae Dunn fall collection.
If you’re stumped on how to decorate for fall or want something simple, this fall table setting is here to give you some inspiration. Now, make a list and head to your favorite home decor store (or stores, hey, I get it) and get to work! But first, always start out shopping in your own home.
