Autumn Tablescape & Maple Leaf Giveaway

I am truly counting down the days until Fall, which is September 22nd.  While I count, and wonder if it will ever feel cooler, I have put together a little maple leaf tablescape that includes a maple leaf giveaway.
I was inspired by the brilliant color and the attention to detail in this pretty Fall Maple art piece which is being offered by the Darren Gygi Home Collection, for this Fall giveaway.
I chose to use this maple leaf as the theme for my outdoor tablescape, where I built my tablescape around the color, texture and woodsy feel.

Tip 1. Add Fresh Fruit

I thought I would also share some easy tips to help you create a Fabulous Autumn tablescape.
For this particular tablescape, I am keeping it natural.
When I think of Fall I think of pumpkins, leaves, and apples.
Since I had these overripe red apples in the fridge, rather than throw them out, I added them to my tablescape.
Using faux boxwood garland I nestled these bright red apples alongside the garland, then added a few multi-colored Autumn leaves.
The red of the apples also complements the maple leaf and my little red bird too.

Tip 2. Adding nature to an Autumn outdoor Tablescape

We have a very natural backyard with wonderful Cedars and Oaks which is the perfect backdrop for this natural Autumn outdoor tablescape. Often times I equate bird nests to Spring, however bird nests are perfect for Fall too.
For an extra natural feel I added a nest to our table alongside my redbird, included a few fall leaves and a velvet pumpkin.

Tip 3. Candles and Candlesticks
Candles are such a lovely way to add ambiance and you cannot go wrong with creme or white. 
Candlesticks are a great way  to provide continuity and anchor the theme of any tablescape.
I chose to use wood candlesticks for my outdoor Autumn tablescape.

Tip 4. Table Runners

Choosing a table- runner for your Autmn tablescape will make all the difference in the world.
Texture, color, and weight of the fabric will add interest to the theme that you are striving to create.
Rule of thumb for the size of a table runner should be about 1/3 to 1/4 as wide as your table and
hang down about 6 to 12 inches on each end.
If you have extra fabric from a previous project, you might like my no-sew table-runner tutorial.

Tip 5. Mix Tall and Low Centerpieces

Mixing short and tall centerpieces to your tablescape will help a space feel vibrant and full.
General guideline keep the tall's around 24 inches and your shorts around 12 inches or under.

  7. So pretty Jemma. I plan to start adding fall decor to our home this week whether the temps cooperate or not. If I wait for that it usually means it's time for Christmas decor instead!

  8. Hello Jemma dear! I have limited use on the internet but I wanted to come by; it is cooling down for us with lots of rain and soon it will be COLD! But I enjoy this time of year and your tablescape is beautiful. YES, fresh fruit and anything fresh and seasonal always adds such beauty to the table! Have a lovely week my friend!

  10. Oh Jemma, your orange little pumpkin reminds me of my orange velvet pumpkin that I just posted today. Your Fall table is so pretty, and the rooster makes it even more special. The candles and apples are charming, and also that sweet red bird. Apples just say "Fall" to me. Autumn on its way, Jemma, and it's already getting cooler here.

    love, ~Sheri

Love the velvet pumpkin gosh one day when I'm done cleaning out and finally settled I hope to have time to create a pretty centerpiece. I just love all these details - simply perfection.

  24. Love all your guidelines and the wonderful photos to illustrate. You are so right about the right table runner and I may well borrow the pumpkin-in-a-nest idea! I'm not as gung ho as you to welcome fall, though! (Maybe I would be if I lived in the South). I am holding onto endless summer like a parachuter to rip cord! I'll love the fall when it's time -- but still clutching my summer sun!

  25. The colors in your tablescape are incredible. Autumn is my favorite season. In Sept, I use leaves, acorns, scarecrows, pumpkins, squirrels. In Oct, I add witches, jack-o-lanterns & ghosts. After Halloween, it's pilgrims & turkeys. I'm so sad when it ends & can't wait until it begins again. Your table looks like a million bucks! thanks

  26. Very beautiful tablescape with lots of inspiration! We're having vey different weather for us in September- 90 degrees and tonight will be rain with thunder! I hope it cools down there in your area soon and you can start to enjoy the fall season. That maple leaf picture is a beautiful addition to have for the autumnal displays. I can definitely find a way to use it!
