This is a more casual table that fits perfect at our breakfast nook. I’d recommend recreating this for a small but intimate fall dinner party or gathering with friends.

Muted Fall Heirloom Pumpkin Centerpiece

The centerpiece consists of some grocery store heirloom pumpkins over a bed of eucalyptus (try Trader Joe’s for a great deal on both). As I’ve mentioned before, I love to keep centerpieces simple so that you can take things away to replace with your food.

However, if you’re craving something a little less simple, you could always add some pretty votive holders to your muted fall tablescape!

Muted Fall Place Setting

The muted fall place setting includes a whitewashed mango wood charger. You can probably tell that I’m a fan of layering different wood tones, and this is one of my favorite pieces for doing that!

The rose gold flatware (similar linked) adds so much warmth to the place setting! It’s also a fun departure from the usual plain stainless. If you’re looking to spice up your tablescape, sometimes that’s all it takes!

Place setting with a sprig of golden whear

These white beaded plates are such a staple piece while I’m entertaining, no matter what the season. They are a bit too fragile for daily use, but they work perfectly for special occasions!

The beige chambray napkins with lace trim are another favorite that I use season after season, as are the heavy glass water goblets (similar linked).

My biggest belief for decorating and entertaining is building a small collection of basics and then adding natural fresh elements to represent the season.

Place setting with dried wheat and heirloom pumpkins

Speaking of natural elements, I garnished each place setting with a small sprig of golden dried wheat. Another quick idea is that you could create little name tags and punch holes to slide the stem through!

My plate shelf (similar linked) stays basically the same throughout the year. As with the place setting, I bring in those natural elements to freshen up the basics for a seasonal feel.

Overall, this is a quick display to put together, and I think it’s prettier for its simplicity. That way you can focus more on entertaining! If you recreate this Muted Fall Tablescape, make sure to tag me @ninahendrickhome on Instagram and use #ninahendrickhome so we can share it in my stories!
