Fall Table with Oaks and Acorns

A stunning fall table is a great way to welcome the coming holiday season. For this table setting I decided to use a muted color palette featuring oak leaves and acorns.

I have gathered together some wonderful talented table stylists to share their interpretations of a Welcome Fall tablescape.  When you finish here, please take the time to visit the blogs listed at the bottom of this post.

This is my chance to show you how you can use any dishes to set a seasonal table.  Kate Spade Larabee Road Platinum Dot is the china I began collecting for our contemporary condominium in Ohio.

The chandelier still had some foliage on it from my Apple Tablescape, so I added additional oak leaves to continue the oak theme.  The visual interest with the oaks above the table is a perfect addition to my fall table decorations.

White china with platinum dots might seem like the last choice for a fall table, but these gave my dining rom table a chic look.

Family gatherings are made special by using treasured items to create a beautiful tablescape. Instead of one fall centerpiece, I incorporated different pieces of silverware filling them to overflowing with faux oak leaves instead of using fresh flowers.

Although I featured acorns, pinecones are another natural element to add to your stunning fall table.

It was long past time to dig out this beautiful silver that has been handed down from my mother, and from her mother to her.  This is Wild Rose by International Silver.  It is such a joy to actually use it and not keep it tucked away.

To coordinate with the silver on the china I dug out the pieces of silver I have.  A coffee pot, a water pitcher and a casserole dish were all filled with artificial oak and maple leaves.  There is the slightest hint of color as the leaves are only beginning to turn.

Gray napkins were gathered over green ones to combine both of the colors featured on the table.  White satin ribbons serve as the napkin rings, each with a little faux oak leaf and cluster of acorns tucked inside.  White napkins could be used as well.

Pumpkins are great for fall, but I really want to save pumpkins for Halloween and Thanksgiving.  The table runner I decided to display down the center of the table does have pumpkins on it, but they aren’t prominent and instead of orange, they are muted grays and beige. I have to admit gray velvet pumpkins would look lovely addition for a beautiful fall table.

Stemware is simple for this table, clear glass wine goblets are complemented by Brookside by Marquis for Waterford sparkling water goblets.

The table runner is decked out with silver pieces filled with faux oak leaves, acorns and pale maple leaves.

  10. Chloe, such a beautiful fall look. I adore the your chandelier dressed with leaves and acorns. I am a big believer for dressing chandys and also chairs. The runner fits in nicely with your Kate Spade Platinum dot China. Mixing patterns is so fun. The napkins look amazing paired together and the added ribbon and acorns and leaves. Your wood table is the perfect backdrop to display table. Always a pleasure to see your amazing talent.

  11. Chloe, I love your table especially your chandelier. It makes a huge statement for the season. I’m a huge acorn fan so your post caught my attention immediately.

    Having family silver is a treasure, isn’t it?


    1. Thank you so much Cindy! I love oaks and acorns, too! I know oaks don’t turn as pretty as maples, but they call to me! Yes, I had no idea how much silver my mother had given me. It turns out there are at least 12 place settings. Although there are plenty of specialty pieces, there are no soup spoons. Replacements has them, so I will add a few at a time.

  12. Chloe your acorn and oaks tablescape is so elegant. Your pretty tied napkins are simply lovely! Thanks for hosting another inspired hop! Pinned and sharing on IG–Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

  13. Chloe, this table is a true classic. I could’ve guessed that was Kate Spade china, contemporary yet traditionally stylish. It’s wonderful that you’re using your grandmother’s sterling! Love the candelabra (those type are often convertible). Satin ribbon and a touch of dried leaves….yin-yang, rustic-refined. I always love that mix. This table could serve various occasions between now and Christmas! Thank you for hosting us, organizing us, and extending the original invitation. It’s a joy to participate.

  14. I love what you did with the chandelier. It looks so festive. I like your polka dot plates too! You have so many great dishes. I’m jealous. Thanks for organizing the hop. It’s always so much fun to see all of the ideas. I learn something new every time.

  15. I am totally in love with the muted fall color palette of your table runner. Like you, I’m saving all the orange and it’s fellow fall colors until later. The polka dot plates are a welcome surprise and you made them work for this table. It’s so good to blog-hop with you again and thanks again for all you do.

  16. Chloe, I love this beautiful and elegant Fall tablescape. Even though the colors are not the typical Fall colors of burgundy, gold and orange, this tablescape has colors that are tranquil and luxurious and really is a classic! Your centerpiece and coordinating chandelier is so stunning. The calm colors of grey and greens and your lovely dinnerware pieces and opulent silver pieces takes it to the next exquisite level. It makes for beautiful, fine dining.

  17. Chloe, this is one of my favorite tables that you have done. The elegance of the Kate Spade and your sterling silver is perfect! Adding only the hints of autumn leaves and acorns gives the idea of a barely rustic and high glam table setting. The chandelier is stunning! Thank you for organizing and hosting the blog hops, they are so much fun!

  18. Chloe, You have created another statement table!! Mixing the multi functional and beautiful polka dot china with your rustic fall accents does show how versatile your Kate Spade pattern can be. You have paired it up beautifully with that gorgeous runner and all of the muted fall tones in the leaves and acorns. I love your napkin treatment, they are just so lovely all fanned out waiting for your guests. The chandelier is another wow factor!! very elegant!! Love it!! Thank you so much for hosting these hops, I know it is a ton of work – but we love doing them. Wishing you a wonderful fall season!

  19. Your table looks amazing friend – you’re so great at this. Love the oaks and acorns. Reminds me of Minnesota where I grew up. We had an oak tree in our backyard that I climbed all of the time.

  20. Chloe, I always look forward to your tablescapes, no matter the season. You are such a source of inspiration for me and so many others! Thank you for hosting these blog hops. I am always amazed at the talent and creativity of this group.

    Happy Fall!

  21. Absolutely beautiful the way you decorated your table. Love what you did to your Chandelier. You always decorate so lovely.

  22. Chloe…this is a beautiful way to introduce fall! Very subtle but it draws you in and let’s you know the season is about to change. Every detail is spot on! If this were a review I would give you a 10+++.
    After many years of entertaining and having to stop for about the last 10-12 years, I am so looking forward to building more supplies and getting things back to normal around here. The one most important thing I’m waiting for is my new dining table which should be here soon. I’ve always loved not only entertaining but also designing my home to welcome guests and for nothing more than my own comfort.
