Pumpkin, Please! Fall Tabletop Inspiration

Pumpkin spice and everything nice, or something like that. Fall is one of my favorite seasons, and it’s always fun to see how this period inspires people. Last week I posted a fall inspired table setting on Instagram. As mentioned, I love creating table-scapes and involving the girls. It is important that they are involved, and not only see but learn how to do. Some of my favorite memories are found around a dinner table.

Here in Atlanta, there is a little shop with a lot of style. At Waiting on Martha Home you’ll find everything from home decor to entertaining, to beautiful jewelry and the perfect gifts for friends. The store has the charm of a quaint Southern town while offering all that a large city can bring. You’ll want to block out time when you go, because there is so much to see and you don’t want to miss anything.

Finding stores like this make creating a beautiful table setting that much easier. When I originally thought about what I’d like to see on my fall table, I knew Waiting on Martha Home would have it! Anytime you are thinking about creating a visual setting, remember these few tips. Vary your heights, whether that is in your glassware, centerpiece or candlesticks. This, as well as layering, helps to create movement that forces the eye to travel around the table. Much like designing a room, you’ll also want to consider scale. I know I talk about the elements of design a lot, but it’s amazing to me how often they come into play. I’ll be doing a series soon that’ll help explain! Keep a lookout, but until then- have fun creating your table setting.
