We are not exactly sure what is going on with the weather here in Southern California. We took our boots out for a few short days and yet today it is back in the 90’s. Therefore, we are counting on things other than the weather to help us get that Fall feeling. Over the weekend, we stopped at our local Whole Foods and were offered a sample of delicious pumpkin pie while we admired their selection of Fall treats and fresh flowers in beautiful shades of orange and rust. At the market, there was a large assortment of pumpkins and gourds in every shape and size. Even though we may have to keep our scarves in the closet for just a little bit longer, Fall is definitely in the air.

Although we both found ourselves needing to relax this past weekend, one thing for sure needed to get done.  It was definitely time to take down our skulls, spiders, and other Halloween decorations and replace them with softer Fall inspired colors and decor. While in the mood, we decided to put together an overall look to inspire you this season when creating a special tablescape for your Fall luncheon or Thanksgiving feast. Don’t worry, we are just one quick call away in case you need our help.

The table is set with a formal olive green damask print tablecloth and some burlap to fill in the gaps. 
Some fresh flowers were added for a bright pop of color in between the large apothecary jars and glass candle holders.
An assortment of mercury glass candle holders are placed strategically around a twisted branch for a good contrast of natural elements and glamorous details.

Lauren ordered this “Give Thanks” plate last year from West Elm (after eyeing it for a couple of years). She is so excited to use it this year when entertaining. We sprinkled some chocolates shaped like Fall leaves around the table along with other small gourds and mini pumpkins for a festive flair.

Different shaped apothecary jars added height to this set up. When filled with burlap scraps and raffia they set the tone for a festive Fall display. We added an interesting pumpkin to one, a tall tapered candle, and straw colored licorice to give each jar its own unique flair.

This eclectic look would be great as the centerpiece for your Thanksgiving table (as the glass allows you to see your guests sitting across from you). We especially like the fact that this set up would look good from every seat of the table. It is also a beautiful way to spruce up a buffet and will look great surrounded by all of the amazing Thanksgiving food. We hope this post sets the tone this month, since we know the weather isn’t, and gets you ready for Fall. We sure are looking forward to our big Thanksgiving feast this year. Lauren can’t wait for pumpkin pie, and Tami’s mouth is watering just thinking about Grandma’s spiced cranberries. What are you looking forward to?
