Natural Fall Table Setting

Welcome Fall
Use ginkgo leaves, crab apples, and wheat when decorating for your next fall get-together.

Stylish Silverware Holder

Transform a glass oval container filled with white rice into a custom silverware holder. Tie sets of silverware together with ivory satin ribbon for an elegant look.

Gourd Centerpiece

Fill a small glass bowl with pumpkin seeds. Top with white and yellow gourds for a natural centerpiece.

Simple Wheat Centerpiece

Keep neutral, autumn colors abundant with an understated centerpiece. Fill a skinny vase with tall stalks of wheat found at a crafts store or a farmer's market. Keep the stalks to a minimum for a light and airy feel.

Crab Apple Centerpiece

Fill a tall glass votive holder with 1 inch of dried white beans. Sprigs of crab apples or other yellow berries make an ornamental addition to the table.

Beautiful Milkweed Table Topper

Milkweed pods are a stunning centerpiece when placed in a tall glass vase. Surround the vase with white and yellow gourds, and place them all in a shallow basket. Set this on a side table to draw attention to the beauty surrounding the meal.

Bundled Grassy Gourd

Line a walkway or steps with this seasonal display. Hollow out a squat white gourd. Bundle fountaingrass, found at local plant nurseries, with twine and secure it in the gourd. If you can't find fountaingrass, any brown ornamental grass will look great.

Ginkgo Place Setting

White plates and tan linen napkins create a crisp and neutral background for bright yellow accents. A mini white pumpkin makes the perfect candlestick holder.

Gingko Plate Embellishment

Dress up a white plate with a square of burlap and a single gingko leaf. Let the ends of the burlap fray for a country look.

Pretty Pumpkin Display

Create an all-white display by grouping elegant white pumpkins. Hollow some out to fill with fountaingrass and wrap others with burlap strips for a chic, natural outdoor scene.

Fall Picnic

For a beautiful and interesting table setting, decorate with fall foliage in natural colors. A table in the backyard or in a dining room dressed in a neutral palette makes for the perfect autumn setting.

Newspaper Tablecloth

Lay newspaper on the table for a rustic (and cheap) tablecloth. Gingko leaves stand stark against the black-and-white paper and look like they fell right from the tree to the table.
