Gather family and friends for an autumn dinner party that has an air of sophistication yet evokes sentiments of the season.
Create the Look
– Move away from the traditional fall color palette by bringing in white tones for a clean and simple look. Use natural elements to maintain a stylish autumn tablescape.
– Place large, white pumpkins on square cake stands, and surround each with light and airy baby’s breath. Continue the theme by adorning the table with miniature pumpkins and other gourds.
– Let place-card holders serve double duty as edible takeaways for your guests. Fill Mason jars with a sweet treat like white chocolate–covered pretzels, and place a piece of burlap over each one. Secure the lid, and attach a handwritten name tag to each jar with a strand of jute.
– At each place setting, put a homemade flatware holder. To make, cut a strip of burlap, and fold over, creating a pocket. Use a hot-glue gun to secure the edges. Cut a strip of burlap in a darker shade, wrap around the edge of the pocket’s opening, and glue in place. Using gold-toned ribbon, tie a bow around the holder to complete the look.
