summer to fall tablescape inspiration

The transition from summer to fall is a special time of year, when the days are still warm but the nights begin to cool. Summer’s memories are still sweet but the anticipation for autumnal festivities has begun to set in. This transitional mood is encapsulated in the three different tablescapes you see below. They’re the perfect looks for your summer to fall engagement, rehearsal dinner, and/or wedding reception!

TABLESCAPE #1: The perfect thing for late summer! Warm pastel hues heat up the neutral backdrop and the hints of blue are a fresh touch and of course, the perfect compliment to shades of orange. The tableware is dainty and the gold-rimmed details along with the candelabras give the whole tablescape a sense of regality!

TABLESCAPE #2: The citrus colored centerpieces and fruits scattered across the table look absolutely chic set against a textural tablecloth that’s reminiscent of marble – and marble is SO on trend right now! The grey and gold of the textile really makes the centerpiece pop and the place settings and glassware are kept simple with clean lines and minimal details.

TABLESCAPE #3: Fall is arriving! The introduction of gorgeous midnight blue transitions the summery centerpiece and bouquet design into a new season without losing the youthful joy and abundance of warmer months. The etched glassware and lace detail on the gown give it all a frosted look that’s irresistible!
