How to Lay an Autumn Table

Laying an autumn table involves creating a warm and inviting atmosphere that reflects the colours and themes of the season. From rich, warm hues to seasonal fruits and cosy candles, here's a guide to help you set the perfect autumn table that captures the essence of this beautiful season.

Embrace Autumn Colours

Signs of Autumn have arrived! This season is synonymous with a vibrant palette of colours. To set the stage for your autumn table, choose tablecloths, plates, napkins and glassware in rich tones of reds, moss green, burnt orange and yellows. These colours evoke the beauty of changing leaves and create a cosy ambience.

Seasonal Fruit Centrepieces

Enhance your table's natural charm by incorporating autumn table decorations, such as bowls brimming with seasonal fruits at the centre. Opt for a delightful combination of pears, tangerines and nuts, offering both visual allure and a delightful treat for your guests. This elegant addition not only elevates the table's aesthetics but also infuses it with a wholesome, rustic essence.

Floral Arrangements

Another dining table decor idea is to incorporate the warm, earthy tones of autumn with floral arrangements. Choose fresh flowers that showcase autumnal colours To complete the look, you can add leaves, branches and twigs for a truly seasonal vibe. Arrange these in vases or mason jars for a charming touch.

Illuminate with Candles

To set a cosy and intimate atmosphere, place candles along the table. Opt for scented candles that capture the essence of autumn, such as our Santal Scented Soy Wax candle. This provides a warm glow and infuses your dining area with the comforting scents of the season. Be sure to use candleholders that complement your table's decor.

Personalised Touch

When setting the table, consider adding a personal touch to each place setting. You can place a sprig of rosemary or a small decorative item on top of each plate. This adds an extra layer of detail and makes each guest feel special. These small additions can tie in with your autumn table theme, such as tiny pumpkins or acorns.

Laying an autumn table is all about celebrating the beauty of the season. By using  warm colours, seasonal fruits, floral arrangements, candles and thoughtful touches, you can create a cosy and inviting atmosphere that will make your guests feel right at home. Embrace the essence of autumn and let your table reflect the rich, vibrant hues and comforting ambience of this wonderful time of year.
