Get Inspired by These 10 Unique and Creative Fall Tablescapes

Do you struggle setting a Fall table worthy of the season? I’ve got ya! Here’s inspiration from 10 insanely creative home bloggers to help.

Who doesn’t love a good tablescape? Especially when the leaves start changing color and the weather starts to cool down.

Today, I’m. thrilled to be sharing 10 bloggers who have created beautiful Fall tables that will inspire you this season. From classic Thanksgiving decor to whimsical settings fit for a party, there’s something for everyone here. So grab a cup of coffee (or apple cider) and get ready to be inspired!

Let’s start with my sweet, genius friend Wendy of WM Design House. Afterall, she’s the one who gathered us gals all together (and let me tell you, herding creatives is very much like herding cats — Hat’s off to you, Wendy!) to all share our Fall tablescapes.

If you don’t yet know Wendy, you are missing out! Her “Meet Me in the She Shed” weekly lives are great. Combine her creative eye, excellent taste, and sharing heart and you know why I’m such a big fan.

Today, Wendy is inviting us into her yard, as is often the case with this Southern Cali gardening girl. This table will blow your mind all the way to the lights hanging overhead as she shares How to Make Outdoor Table Decoration Ideas Come to Life.

And all those pumpkins in he softest shades! Did you notice what is holding the arrangement?

Let’s continue with another West Coast gardening gal, actually the Pacific Northwest this time. I’m so happy to share the super sweet and supremely talented Kim of Shiplap & Shells.

Kim shares How to Warm up Your Fall Table With Pumpkins and Mums. Kim even grew some of the pumpkins herself!

I love how she incorporated the moss to tie everything together for a continuous look.

And you need to read her post to see how she adorned each placesetting.

Now on to another Gardening genius, Stacy of Bricks N Blooms.. Stacy has sprawling, spectacular gardens, so she knows flowers. Just look at this:

Have you ever seen such a colorful, yet cozy deck? Stacy shares How to Set a Cozy Fall Harvest Table

Lucky for us, she doesn’t hold back! She enthusiastically shares just how to make a lovely arrangement whether we’re clipping from our gardens or getting flowers from Trader Joe’s. Her excitement is contagious and empowering.

I love the Stacy uses her “good china” even though it’s outdoors. AND that she uses cloth napkins over paper. and she advocates for foraging! I’m with you Stacy on all counts!

So speaking of foraging, let’s pause a moment to make sure you saw my post last week, How To Forage a Free and Fabulous Fall Tablescape. I don’t have the expansive spectacular gardens that these first three gals do, but I do have a pretty spectacular neighborhood with neighbors who encourage and enable my creative habits.

It bears repeating. I can’t say it enough: I LOVE my block!

I set a table for a Fall “Drop-In Sunrise Kickstart Your Day” gathering of the neighbor gals. I shared all the easy peasy details of this table. Yes, how honestly, I set it in less than 10 minutes!

My blogging buddy Lynn of Living Large in a Small House is such a delight and a truly generous spirit. Always giving and always organizing! And her blog is filled with such goodness, I encourage you to subscribe if you haven’t already.

Lynn shares her vision for Dining Alfresco with a Harvest Tablescape. This table in her yard overlooking the river is amazing.

You need to hop over for all the details on her mini charcuterie boards and her silverware holders at each place setting. So clever, so cute!

There’s a LOT here, right?

It’s a lot to take in!

Be sure to Pin it so you don’t Forget it!

And another of my special blogging buddies is Renae of Peacock Ridge Farm. Renae goes all in every time on the details. I can’t wait to see her tables. There’s always an unexpected element and Renae is always going for the elegant. Whether rustic or glam, it is always rooted in elegance.

Renae shares How to Create Rustic Elegance for Your Fall Table. She shares how she’s inspired by the French Countryside.

And here’s another of my special blogging buddies, Michele of Vintage Home Designs. I’ve had the incredible joy of meeting Michele in person over two years ago, we’ve collaborated on many, many projects and zoom calls. I’ve even walked through her home getting to see all her amazing spaces in person.

Michele is pure creative genius in how she approaches her tablesettings. They are whimsical. They are complete stories. They always include something unexpected being used in a totally new way.

Michele shared a whole buffet of Fall tablescapes in her Easy Ideas for Creating a Simple Fall Tablescape. When I’m looking for creative inspiration, Michele’s blog is my first stop. You should — no make that, you NEED to read the entire post — and take notes!

EEEK! (In excited fan-girl voice here.) I’m sooo excited to be sharing Kelly of The Tattered Pew . I’ve been following Kelly for quite a while and love so much of what she does. I love how genuine she is. She’s approachable and casual — my kinda gal!

Kelly shared How to Set a Casual Thanksgiving Table. I really appreciate how Kelly steps us through her decision making process from start to finish. So many good tips.

Kelly, it’s been great working with you here, hopefully just the beginning of many more, EEEKK!

Now let me introduce Kylie of Truemans Treasures. A Midwest gal just like me (well, minus a couple of decades perhaps).

Kylie’s post Creepy Chic Halloween Tablescape reminded me that Halloween can be chic! With not a speck of orange plastic anywhere! it’s possible to take just about any celebration and with some tweaking, it can fit your style.

Kylie shares all her decisions along the way. This is very enlightening and can be applied to other occasions too.

And my last share today is a special one, Nicole of Our Tiny Nest. I did not know Nicole until she started joining the Fabulous Friday Link Party — and winning features.

And caught my eye. Now I look forward to Nicole’s posts every week.

Check out Nicole’s thoughts on setting an informal table in her post A Simple Fall Tablescape in Autumnal and Gold Hues. Thanks Nicole I loved the reminder that an informal table can be so lovely and to always start with what you already have.

And there you have it, friends!


  • Foraging through your yard (or anyone else’s) and through your closets can be great fun, with very stylish rewards, and we all love free.
  • Repurpose unexpected items for your tablescape.
  • There are many, many different way to set a fabulous table.

Not sure where to start? Why not take some inspiration from these bloggers who really know how to put a great table together.
