Exquisite fall tables decor ideas can usher in the season for celebrating the warmth and enjoyment of sharing life with family and friends. Homes become the center of family life and entertainment plans, and decorating our homes with a Fall theme adds to the richness of life. Planning the color theme you want to be the focal point of the Fall tablescape is the best way to begin. The essential elements of a tablescape are fabric, lighting and hard accents.
A fabric with soft textures such as a silk is the basis for a fascinating vignette of color and textures. Choose a fabric that works with the dining room table and with the hard accents. A mix of fabric textures in complementing colors may be part of the fabric design. The fabric can be a table runner that drapes over each end of the table with another texture to overlay an area of the runner. Another option is to choose a table cloth in a solid color and add a table runner to create a layered look.
Lighting is an important element because it can be used to set a mood or further create the theme. Candles are an excellent choice since these are available in so many colors, sizes and shapes. Placing candles in a crystal glass or a beautifully shaped bowl will make the candle a very nice feature that will help to bring the color scheme together. Setting the candles on clear or colored glass pebbles will incorporate the candles into the tablescape.
Hard accents are the final element of the design. While there are literally hundreds of these to choose from, the colorful glass pumpkins and gourds in a variety of sizes will add the beauty that can only be achieved by fine glass objects. Experiment with grouping the pumpkins in various ways to find the most ideal arrangement. Creating levels is a great idea. Add attractive garland by weaving it among the candles and pumpkins.
