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. 

How to put together a fall tablescape

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. 

Centerpiece ideas using frosted sage 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.

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. 

Fall Harvest Party Tips

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.
