Here’s how to create a transitional tablescape as we move slowly into the new season.
Today, I’m excited to partner up with some blogger friends for our Fall Hop! I will tag them at the end of this post so you can go tour their amazing homes. We’re sharing some Fall projects with the hope and intent to inspire you as you enter into the new season. I love entertaining and having guests so I thought it fitting to share my tips on how to create a transitional tablescape.
This post is sponsored by Magic Linen but all styling, opinions and thoughts are my own.
It’s still super hot, humid and muggy in GA as it always is in August. Even though we’re slowly inching closer to the end of Summer, there are no signs of Fall here until at least mid October. Even though I love Summer, I am finally getting excited for cooler weather, the changing of the leaves and pumpkin everything.
Recently, Magic Linen asked to partner up with me on sharing their linen products. As I always do, I researched their company and immediately fell in love with their high quality products.
They were generous to let me choose pieces that I could use for my transitional tabescape. It was all so beautiful but I ended up choosing their ruffled tablecover, linen napkins with pom poms and a gray linen runner. I thought they would make the perfect transitional tablescape.
Upon receiving the items, I could tell right away that the quality was really superb. The products even smelled nice! I gave everything a nice ironing job and started putting together my transitional tablescape.
When I was looking through their website, I envisioned doing something neutral that would make a great transition into Fall without screaming pumpkins. I love that this tablescape could actually be used all year round.
Simple steps to create a transitional tablescape
- Add a neutral tablecover like this one
- Layer a runner or use a scarf, blanket or even a piece of fabric down the center
- Add a natural type of placemat or charger
- Combine a neutral plate with a smaller salad plate
- Place napkins on top of the plates or in between the charger and large dish
- Add casual water glasses
- Clip fresh greenery from outside and use jars or containers to hold them
I recently painted over that large stone console table in the back and added the art and plants. I love how these simple changes really transformed the vibe of this space. It feels really peaceful and the mix of the colors and plants add a new life to this dining room. Sometimes, shopping around your home and moving things around can offer a fresh change of scenery.
For the centerpieces, I just clipped fresh gardenia leaves outside and added them into these gray canister containers. Simple and natural was my motto for this tablescape. You don’t always need to buy fresh flowers. Just take a look outside your doors.
The gold napkin rings were a thrifted antique find a while back. I love how the Magic Linen runner adds a subtle touch of color to the white ruffled table cover. The casual beaded water mason jars keep it from feeling too formal.
I hope you enjoyed my tips on how to create a transitional tablescape! You can find a lot more of my tablescape ideas on the blog including an Autumn inspired one or this jewel toned Thanksgiving table.
