Farmhouse vintage

We love this vintage, yet rustic farmhouse tablescape. Opt for plenty of whites, beiges and linens to keep the table looking fresh. Mini pumpkins from your local market or faux decorative ones add a pop of orange. For a centerpiece, choose delicate florals and pastel pumpkins to keep with the colour palette. Incorporate some brass with moscow mule mugs for an extra pop!

Moody hues

To get this moody tablescape for Thanksgiving, think pumpkins! Lots and lots of white and grey pumpkins. Pile them on the middle of the table for a seasonal centerpiece. Continue the colour scheme, with hues of greys, beiges, and black accents and dinnerware. Opt for silver accents to give your look a bit of polish. To add a bit of natural texture, tie some seasonal herbs in twine at each place setting.

Beautiful and bountiful

This classy table is about more being more. It combines gorgeous gold accents with plenty of greenery to make a statement — and cleverly uses some of the feast to come as an accent. What's not to love about a table decorated with carbs? Lanterns, pumpkins painted gold, and lots of silver dollar eucalyptus make a gorgeous centerpiece. Opt for gold chargers and simple white plates. Turn wine glasses upside down and write guests' names on mini pumpkins for place cards. Aside from the festive pumpkins, let pieces of foccacia with a sprig of rosemary tied with twine be the focal point of each place setting.

Colourful al fresco à l'orange

Colour is key to this autumnal tablescape. Think lots of seasonal tones of oranges, yellows and reds, mixed with turquoise to make it even more bright and cheerful. Pay a visit to your local florist or farmers market for some seasonal florals (such as sunflowers) to make your centerpieces. Pumpkins are an easy and fun way to add extra orange to the dinner table. To add a rustic and vintage vibe, mix and match your chairs, and opt for antique dinnerware. Not everything has to match, which makes it optimal for entertaining large groups. This look can be accomplished indoors, too - but if you've got the weather, we say opt for an al fresco feast!

Cozy country blues

This tablescape is perfect for smaller gatherings. Incorporate blue and whites from summer into an autumnal setting. Add brass accents and white pumpkins and pinecones for warmth. We love using a plaid throw as a tablecloth because it adds warmth and texture to the table. Keep dinnerware simple with blues and whites, and add a pop of colour with some pumpkin napkins.
