Simple Fall Entry Table Styling
Every year I start my fall decorating on the entry table or the mantel, because for me they’re the easiest places to add seasonal decor. I’ll be sharing the mantel in my home tour soon, so the entry table is first up.
My simple fall styling in the entryway includes warm colors, dried foliage, pumpkins, seasonal artwork and a candle makeover.
Fall Entry Table Vignette
One of the easiest ways to decorate a tabletop is to create simple vignettes. I usually start with a group of three items and build from there. The focal point of this fall entry table vignette is a handsome green pumpkin sitting on a nest of paper leaves.
The paper leaves are actually a garland and may look familiar, because they are from my post DIY Book Page Leaf Garland.
To copy this look start with a platform such as a stack of books. Then create a flat wreath or ring by circling the leaf garland on top of the books. The last step is placing the pumpkin on top. Easy peasy!
The green pumpkin is one of my recent projects from the post Three Easy Faux Pumpkin Makeovers. Be sure to check out the before and after photos to see how a small bit of paint can make all the difference. It’s a more realistic look now with lighter shadowing and the color change on the stem.
I’m thinking the stack of books, leaves and pumpkin could be a lovely beginning for a pretty centerpiece. Something to keep in mind when planning a fall tablescape.
For fall foliage I using dried bunny tail grass in a simple black vase. This is such a pretty way to display a natural element, plus it adds an interesting shape and a soft texture to the vignette.
To anchor the grouping I’m bring back a large vintage ochre clay vessel. It has the most wonderful wicker surround, with a beautiful golden patina that adds another textural element to the table. It’s one of my favorite pieces to use in the fall.
Updating A Candle holder
Do you have any plain candles you want to update just for fun? In less than five minutes I gave this frosted candle holder a fall-ish vibe.
First I removed the candle label, then using a white chalk paint pen I added some leaves and dots to give it a bit of subtle pizzazz. For a permanent solution use a sharpie paint pen and add your initials. This is such an easy way to personalize a candle.
As long as I’m switching everything over to fall, I might as well change the artwork too. The acorn and fall leaves watercolors are both available at Thistle Key Lane’s Society6 store. I have lots of fall watercolors to choose from traditional to modern.
I ordered these art prints from my store, because I needed a larger size to fit the mats in these frames.
I’m including one more view of the entryway, where I’m displaying my faux terra cotta pumpkins. This is another recent project that I’m extremely happy with. I just love how they look with the peace lily next to front door.
Be sure to follow Thistle Key Lane on Pinterest, where the boards are up to date with seasonal inspiration that you can use right now!
Are you ready to decorate for fall? Don’t worry about decorating every surface, that can be too overwhelming. Instead pick a spot you want to highlight, then add something that will make you smile.
Thank you for stopping by today for my simple fall entry table styling ideas. I hope you will find simple ways to enjoy your fall.
