For many of us, falltime is synonymous with food! While we’re gearing up for hearty Thanksgiving dinner meals and other autumnal favorites, why not also add a delicious brunch get-together into the mix? Whether you’re bringing home a few Peach Valley Café favorites or catering your next big event with the help of your favorite brunch spots, here’s a few suggestions for fun ways to add some fall flair to your table:
Start with a Bold Centerpiece
Looking to make a big, bold impression? Start thinking about all the eye-catching objects that could be the star of your table. Maybe you’d like to shop for some seasonal pumpkins and gourds to use in decorative and inventive ways. Setting up a cluster works great – but you might even want to try getting creative and hollowing out a pumpkin to use as a unique vase. Try a pretty wildflower arrangement, wheat stalks, or autumn branches. Or, for some added warmth, introduce some candles, placed inside an arrangement of loose maize or other dried autumn potpourri.
Choose the Right Tablecloth
You can also add some autumnal spice to your table with your choice of tablecloth. Keep it cozy and reminiscent of a fall picnic with a plaid, blanket-like fabric, or try something rustic like a natural burlap tablecloth. Looking to keep things fun for the kids at the table? Opt for neutral brown kraft paper – then supply the colored pencils or crayons for plenty of drawing fun – like tracing little hands to create festive turkey doodles!
Get Creative with Place Settings
How are you planning to arrange guests at their seats? Aside from basic place cards, there’s plenty of other fun options for unique autumnal touches. You might try shopping for some mini pumpkins and gourds. Paint pens make it easy to write the names of each guest on their pumpkin. Or, you could tie a handwritten tag to each stem, leaving the pumpkins untouched for guests to decorate later! If that idea doesn’t spark your fancy, you might leave each guest with a blank list and a pen – prompting them to write down the reasons they’re giving thanks this year to share as the perfect conversation starter.
Add a Few Finishing Touches
Looking for some final touches to tie your table together? Think about all things natural and fallish! Consider scattering around some pinecones or fake leaves around your centerpiece. Ears of maize could be a great table addition. You might even consider weaving some delicate fairy lights through your tablescape to add some whimsy. Plenty of light options even come battery-pack-powered for extra convenience!
