Things are slowly transitioning to fall over here, but the weather has been so sunny, it’s kind of hard to believe it. Before we completely move over to fall pumpkins and fall foliage, I thought it would be fun to do a late summer/early fall table set up. I partnered with World Market to share my five tips to created a mix+match tablescape. Mixing up your table decor is the perfect way to bring your entertaining game up to the next level.
You can find everything I’ve used today, at World Market. And they have some amazing sales going on for their Gathering Event, which is 50% off all dining furniture, 30% off dinnerware and table linens, 30% off clothing, jewelry and accessories and they’re running their fall wine sale as well! The event runs until Sept 28th, so it’s the perfect time to stock up on fall entertaining necessities! Read on for my five tips for mixing and matching your table decor!
As you can see, the tablescape is pretty neutral, but I used so many different textures that it keeps it interesting. I love the rough wood combined with linen and the rustic finish on the flatware. Texture and pattern mixing are kind of my jam. Texture is a subtle way to make things feel more expensive and luxe, visually and tangibly.
Speaking of pattern mixing…Using different patterns, like in these dishes, is the perfect way to draw the eye. The dishes are all the same tone and color, but the patterns vary which gives it a more eclectic vibe. Pattern is so fun to play with and it’s a great way to make your table look more unique.
KEEP THINGS TONAL
In order to keep things from looking too busy, I like to keep things on the same color palette. Here you see the tones range from natural linen to warm taupe. Since everything is in the same color family, the table feels cohesive. This also makes things easier for reusing them down the road.
USE THE UNEXPECTED
With Pinterest these days, it’s hard to create something totally unique and unseen. But it helps to think outside of the box. In this case, I used window sheers as an tablecloth overlay. If I had stuck to just a plain linen tablecloth there wouldn’t have been much interest. Instead I used the stripes on these window panels to create graphic interest. Other unexpected items I’ve used in the past to decorate the table? Blankets, scarves, even rugs! I’ve also used kitchen towels as napkins and jewelry for napkin holders 😉
Always, always, always have something fresh on the table. Whether it’s abundant summer blooms, warm fall foliage, winter fruits or branches or spring greens…it’s the perfect way to keep your table looking seasonal and curated. It’s cheap, easy and there’s no storage space needed!
