It’s party time, and this party idea is focused on all things fall. Our fall harvest party idea is the guide on how to put together a fall tablescape, simple fall party ideas, and tips on pulling a party together.
Fall Tablescape | Fall Harvest Party Idea
I love all things Fall, and I’m thrilled at how this fun party idea turned out. It’s been a while since I’ve been in the creative mindset to put together a tablescape.
For this fall party idea, I kept it simple. Even with the food, we kept this fall harvest idea easy and no-fuss.
So here’s how I put this fall tablescape together
After lugging our dining room table and chairs outside, courtesy of my handsome teenage sons, I started with putting the centerpiece together.
Sometimes I start putting a tablescape together with the plates and silverware. There are times where I struggle with coming up with a great centerpiece idea, so I save it for the last thing on my list. But with this idea, I knew for sure I wanted to use a lot of greenery.
Frosted sage is really popular right now, especially in Farmhouse themes. I placed a folded white lace curtain across the middle of the table, laying a beautiful piece of frosted sage on top.
I added purple pieces of frosted sage throughout the centerpiece for a little pop of color. At the ends of the centerpiece, I placed color pumpkins for more pops of color, as well as a brown bottle. As much as I love the whole Farmhouse thing, one thing I don’t care for is all the neutral colors. Most of the Farmhouse IG accounts I follow, all have lovely photos, but 90% are white and neutral colors.
A little color never hurts. 😉
I also added more color with little white plant holders and more green garland. I love how these gold/brown vases and bottles make a nice statement piece throughout this harvest tablescape.
How to set a fall table setting
Here’s how I put each table setting together in this order.
- Gold Silverware
- Linen Chargers
- White Dinner Plates
- Cloth Linen Napkins
- White Salad Plates
- Mini Fall/Harvest Decorated plates
- Pumpkin Ramekins
- Small glass cups
Shabby Chic Fall Decor Ideas
For some additional fall fun, I rolled out my shabby chic cart I picked up a local store. I really LOVE this white cart. I remembered when I first laid eyes on it at the store, it was love at first sight.
For this shabby chic fall decor idea, I just added a little bit of my Rae Dunn fall collection, soft, plush pumpkins, as well as some other decor items. I added a little pop of color with more sage greenery and little pumpkins I picked up from the $1 spot at Target.
Now, all we need is the food and guests, and this party is ready to go! Derrick made some simple recipes for this Fall Harvest Party.
I’m still on the fence about pumpkin everything, but Derrick recently created a spicy pumpkin hummus dish that I am really digging this year. For this fall party, he whipped up a pumpkin dip and no-fuss pasta dish. Along with bread and a fall punch, we’re ready to celebrate all things fall with our friends and family.
Fall Harvest Party Tips
When it comes to entertaining for a small or a big crowd of people, the key is to start with being organized. Make a list of everything you will need to do before your party. Keeping your themes and recipes simple takes the stress off of you, the host/hostess.
If you’re not planning a harvest party, you can use this idea for Thanksgiving! Just imagine your cornbread dressing across this table, giving it all types of pop of color along with your Thanksgiving turkey.
This harvest party was such a fun idea to put together. Derrick and I enjoyed the fruits of our labor. With these simple party ideas, you can easily put together a fun theme for your guests. All of our harvest food ideas are 30-minute recipes, and this tablescape was put together in under 30 minutes as well!
