How To Create the Perfect Fall Place Setting

I know it’s only August, but in my house we are already getting ready for Fall.  One of my favorite things to do is change up my dining table decor to usher in each new season and Fall is one of my favorites.  It’s out with Summer and in with all the cozy Fall vibes and textures.  I’m going to put together a list of everything you need for a Fall place setting that would be perfect on any table!  It’s all about layering different patterns, textures and materials that can add depth to your space and be the focal point of your room.

I love the idea of using natural elements like metal and wood this Fall, and I think these items are the perfect balance. I always start with a charger or placemat and build up from there.  Here are some chargers that I’m loving for Fall!

Once you’ve picked out a charger for your base, pick a dinner plate that you love.  It could be solid or patterned, depending on the look you’re going for.  Here are some of my picks.

The next step is adding a salad size plate.

The next thing I like to layer on is a cloth napkin. This adds texture and fullness to a place setting.

The last step can be whatever you want.  Sometimes I’ll throw a small bowl on top, greenery, a small pumpkin, place card or anything else you can think of that would be a fun addition.  Here are a few of my favorite things.
