Gathered Moments

Create a Natural Tablescape for Fall

As you spend time with loved ones this Thanksgiving, set the table with inspired pieces to create meaningful moments around the table. In this journal entry, we are sharing our favorite tips for curating a Fall table-scape, to help you re-create this look in your own home this holiday season.

No. 1 – Forage Your Centerpiece

Add a sense of beauty to your table-scape with organic, natural details. Start by creating a centerpiece or focal point with one of our unique, one-of-a-kind, Found Pots. Our Found Pots hold stories from another place and time, and their history is as deeply woven as the texture and beauty they create.

After you have collected your vessel, you’ll want to add some fall foliage for color, texture and height. There is no better place to forage for stems, other than your own backyard. We find using what nature has provided, is always the best place to start. Curate your leafy autumnal arrangement as the starting place to build the rest of your decor around.

No. 2 – Gather Seasonal Details

Gather fairy tale pumpkins and gourds in pale oranges, creams and deep green hues to create a moody fall palette. Use these autumnal hues to create a cohesive look for your table-scape that carries into your textiles and dinnerware choices. You can mix the pumpkins and gourds in varying shapes and sizes, and arrange them artfully on a textured table runner, or place in a harvest style basket for a beautiful centerpiece statement.

No. 3 – Create a Statement with Dinnerware

Our Palo Santo Dinnerware Collection creates an artful and beautiful statement for elevating any occasion. Handcrafted by masterful artisans in Mexico using organic materials, each piece represents the fusion of traditional techniques and modern design. We love the character of the burnt orange clay in these unique, one-of-a-kind pieces. You can shop our Palo Santo Dinnerware Collection here.

No. 4 – Texturize with Unique Elements

Items with character and unique history can spark conversation and create a sense of wonder while also adding different materials and finishes for a balanced look. Wooden boards, woven baskets, terracotta pots, etched glass, brass details, and linen textiles all add a sense of depth, warmth and texture to your table-scape. Woven together, all of these unique elements create a moody aesthetic that will invite your loved ones to sit down and create beautiful conversations around.

No. 5 – Add Warmth with Tapered Candles

One of our favorite ways to create warmth at the dinner table is with tapered candles. Tapered candles add a cozy ambiance and create a soft amber glow to set the mood for your guests. Our curated candles are handcrafted by skilled candle makers, making each one as unique, as the moment it creates.
