A Fall Tablescape Worth Gathering Around
There’s a shift in the air, can you feel it? Fall is upon us, and with it comes a time-honored tradition that transcends the mere act of dining — it's the gathering around the table, where connections and time together are harvested.
In the hustle and bustle of our daily lives (and heck, the whole upcoming holiday season), there's something beautifully grounding about spending time around the table. It's more than just a meal; it's an opportunity to slow down, savor, and enjoy the fruits of your labor. This sacred space is where stories flow freely and where the heart of our homes truly resides.
So how do you create a table that lives up to such a great sense of importance? The key is in simplicity, letting the company you’re with become the true centerpiece.
Extravagance isn’t quite our style, but a little touch of fancy does go a long way. These buttery leather Tablecloths in FW23 hues do just the trick. Use it as your foundation — not only for the decor you’ll layer on top, but for the messy meals to come. We’ve found that a wipeable surface never goes out of style.
A relaxed mix of tableware, like ceramic plates in muted tones, reeded glassware, and a couple of tapered candles, effortlessly bridge the gap between everyday dining and special occasions. They’re durable enough for family gatherings and stylish enough to impress guests.
Complement your neutral table setting with drops of color through seasonal fruits, like apples and pears; gourds; pinecones; and delicate dried florals. These nods to the bountiful harvest season also carry with them an intrinsic reminder of gratitude that’s perfect for the times.
All this decor sets the seasonal tone, but for a tablescape that fosters connection between the people around it, keep it functional too. It’s easy to go overboard with accessories or a big floral centerpiece, but these things can easily get in the way of conversation — and maybe more importantly, the meal, itself! Less is more, in our book.
We can’t wait to see how you’ve gotten fall-ready at the dining table and throughout your home. Share with us at @gathre — we’re following along!
