It is undeniable that fall leaves are one of nature’s showstoppers and when the time comes each year to start decorating for autumn, we can’t wait to jump right in.

We have created a handful of gorgeous fall looks in the most trendy autumn colors of the season, from amazing untraditional color schemes to color palettes that keep the fall tradition alive!

Pink & Burgundy

When you are planning your fall decor, you don’t typically think “pink” but there is no denying that this dusty pink chrysanthemum compliments these burgundy peonies and gold beaded acorns perfectly.

When you create a custom garland for the base of your fall tablescape, there are so many ways to dress it up.

To do this, start with a pre-made eucalyptus garland and two large bundles of artificial greenery.  We chose large eucalyptus leaves and lamb’s ear.  Unbundle the leaves and begin to wind them into the garland.  For a temporary centerpiece, simply weave the stems together, tucking larger stems under the garland to hide them.

For a more permanent table garland, attach the leaf stem to the garland with floral tape, like this floral table runner.  Now that your base of greenery is complete, add your favorite seasonal flowers to beautify the centerpiece!

Traditional Fall

Traditional fall decorating of course starts with… you guessed it!  A pumpkin! This fall color palette has us dreaming of crisp autumn days filled with leaf piles and apple cider.  The base of the tablescape is a modern gold striped table runner, complimented by gold chargers and flatware.

Another way to incorporate pumpkins in your fall decor is with these adorable velvet cuties! Keeping the traditional fall color scheme, this arrangement has a trendy twist with the addition of velvet and gold.

Natural wheat bundles are an organic way to dress up your buffet, or use a few stalks as accents on your place settings.  A flowing organza table runner is the perfect finishing touch.
