Fall is in full swing, and it's time to take advantage of the season and add some unique rustic décor to your table! Autumn tends to bring out the desire to be cozy, sip warm drinks, cook warm food, and embrace all the colors on the red end of the spectrum. Tablescaping is a great way to warm up your dining room, whether you are hosting a gathering or just want to bring the feeling of fall harvest into your home. Below I have included 5 items that can easily bring together your rustic fall tablescape.Wood Box
Placing a wood box at the center of your table creates a perfect foundation for your design. You may then add objects to the box. Get creative! Use found objects from around the house or grab a few inexpensive items from the craft store. An added bonus of using a wood box for the center of your rustic tablescape is that it is easily moved when you are serving a large dinner and need extra space.
An alternative to using a wood box as the foundation is to use a wood plank. Using a wood plank opens all sorts of possibilities. You can use oak, alder, pine, barnwood, or another type of reclaimed wood, to name a few. You can fine tune the design of your fall tablescape to be all rustic, modern rustic, or just modern.
Pumpkins, Gourds, and Other Natural Bounty
One of my favorite things about fall is all the cute little pumpkins and gourds. You may choose to incorporate small or large pumpkins, and all different colors of gourds. Large pumpkins can be used as a base for flowers if the top is relatively flat with a dip in the middle.
Pheasant feathers are a beautiful and easy way to incorporate more autumn into your rustic fall tablescape. Add them to bouquets of flowers, next to place settings, in a vase... The possibilities are endless.
Burlap is most commonly used as a table runner in rustic tablescape designs, but this is another element that can be extremely versatile. Burlap can be used for placemats, decorative napkins, napkin holders, vase wraps, even table cloths.
