This simple and inexpensive fall table decor incorporates natural elements to add warmth to an existing color scheme. 

If you’ve seen the rest of my fall home tours this year, you’ll remember that I’m trying to keep it simple and natural. Similar to my fall mantel, I’ve opted for eucalyptus and red apples for my fall tablescape, accented with some pretty gold candlesticks and lanterns.

You’ll see my favorite blue tartan plates are making another appearance. It doesn’t matter the season, blue always has my heart!

Seeded eucalyptus (only $3 a bunch at Trader Joe’s!) is one of my favorite types of greenery to add at this time of the year. Adding something real (or faux greenery, too!) always adds the finishing touch to any space – whether it’s a table garland or a plant in your living room. Just do it and you’ll be amazing at how the space will come alive.

The little square tealight holders are actually from the Dollar Store and I just used a gold sharpie around the top edge to embellish it a bit. Cheap and cheerful!

A fall tablescape like this may look pretty elaborate but it’s really mostly the garland that visually fills the space. Gather candle holders or tall lanterns to add visual height, add your dinnerware with another stem of eucalyptus and you can call it a day! Beautiful and inexpensive.

As pretty as the eucalyptus and apples are, this floral arrangement really is the showstopper on my dining table. I actually took these photos almost a month ago and it’s STILL going strong!

The limelight hydrangeas are from my garden and I just let them dry out and they look amazing all season long. The dark red flowers are filler flowers again from Trader Joe’s.

At this time of year, instead of keeping all the cooler tones that I embraced in the spring and summer, I like to bring in some warmth.

The easiest way to do that is with warmer colors, the gold lanterns in this case, as well as wood tones. I love how the warmth contrasts with the cooler blues to keep the space looking fresh but still appropriately seasonal.
