FALL INSPIRED TABLE SETTING


Beautiful, Simple Fall Scandinavian Tablescape

Fall is in the air...and I couldn't be more excited!  As much as I've enjoyed our beautiful summer, for me Fall brings cool crisp days, warm sweaters, apple cider, and beautiful autumn colors. Not to mention my birthday! Around the home it's time to bring out the mums, change up the centerpiece, and add cozy blankets & pillows to the couch.  Keep scrolling to read some of my tips on creating an eclectic cozy table setting that won't break the bank!


THE ANNUAL FALL EVENT.  10% Off all Dining Tables & Benches!

Here at WHAT WE MAKE Fall & family go hand in hand. Don't miss out on gathering around one of our tables this fall with our annual friends and family event! Featured in this post is our Reclaimed Wood Plank Dining Table.


FALL TABLE SETTING TIPS:

  • Grab a modern vase to use as your centerpiece and fill it with fallen branches and leaves. I gathered everything for our centerpiece within in walking distance from our workshop! Florals are beautiful, but they're costly and only last a week or so. This branch centerpiece will last all season and transitions well throughout the season.

  • Go to antique & second hand stores to find interesting drink and serveware. I've collectected several silver pitchers and these really cool etched goblets that make the table feel eclectic and unique. Don't be afraid to mix new and old together!

  • Switch out your bright white dinnerware for some organic grey and muted earthy tones.

  • Add a cozy sheepskin to your bench or chair to add a mix of textures and warmth.

  • Try different combinations until you find the right mix. Play around with what you have and have fun!

MODERN MEETS FARMHOUSE


Tips for setting your Easter table

Easter is around the corner! This year we decided to jazz up our rustic Farmhouse Dining Table for Easter Brunch. Follow our simple styling tricks below to get the perfect table setting for your Easter Brunch.

SIX TIPS FOR SETTING YOUR EASTER TABLE!

1. Make a statement with a large centerpiece.  

Choose a modern vase with simple clean lines. Add Magnolia branches as we did, or a contemporary floral arrangement. 

2. Tell a color story and stick to it.

Choose 3 - 4 colors to stick to. We chose a neutral palette with shades of white, sage green, pinks, and touches of mercury gold.

3. Create 3 - 4 different height levels for depth & dimension.

This is a must! I find when I'm styling if I don't create different heights things fall flat. We created different heights with tall candles, bowls, trays, and layering different items together.

4. Add warmth with different textures.

Linens, sheepskin throws, pillows, and marble not only add visual appeal they are also super comfy!

5. Feature handmade ceramics and vintage finds.

Featuring your treasured items makes your table feel like home! Experiment, be creative. We unexpectedly filled hand thrown ceramic bowls with some grass and eggs. 

6. Don't forget the bunnies + eggs! 

It wouldn't be Easter without the bunnies + eggs! Whether you use faux or hand dipped, eggs are a must!
