Autumn is multi coloured beauty at it’s best and this is the inspiration I drew on when putting together an inspirational Autumn tablescape. I sourced the florals from Viva the Flower Store and selected a beautiful range of blooms and foilage; magnolia, cymbidium orchid, after dark foliage, red leucadendron and monbretia berry. I used the flowers to create a full and textural table runner with an arrangement of red leucadendron and magnolia leaf in a deep green vase. The effect is rich and inviting, setting the scene for an Autumn feast. A successful tablescape not only looks the part but it creates an ambience that makes you want to sit down and enjoy whatever is being put in front of you. This style incorporated Autumn colours, some seasonal figs on the table and most importantly, texture and contrast including velvet and natural textiles. The gold cutlery gave it a hint of warmth and elegance synonymous with the season.
In Autumn, the morning and nights are cooler and the trees are starting to change colour. It’s the perfect time to have your friends and family around for an Autumn feast. We know the food will be amazing, but how do you make this feast LOOK divine? Below I’ve shared 5 tips to guide you in creating your very own perfect Autumn Tablescape:
