7 Ideas for Beautiful Fall Table Decorations

Set a gorgeous table for a fall gathering with our ideas for decorating with pumpkins, candles, flowers, corn and more.
  • Orange-and-white beauty

    White pumpkins encircled by bittersweet vine and set along an orange table runner create a striking table arrangement.

  • Setting the season

    Vibrant dahlias in carved-out mini pumpkins delight at place settings. (We used a candle carver—a small tool that removes candle-size chunks from fruits and veggies.) Insert a votive holder as the "vase" for water and blooms. For the centerpiece, a row of cake stands raises pumpkins decorated with tisue-paper leaf silhouettes. Download our free instructions and templates for the silhouettes below.

  • Bountiful tabletop

    Create a beautiful table display that shows off the bounty of the season. Cylindrical vases filled with birdseed provide a sturdy base for branches from which small pumpkins dangle on bits of twine. Between the vases, hollowed-out gourds hold candles as well as berries. Finish the look by arranging berries, pinecones, gourds, branches and moss around the vases.

  • Countryside harmony

    Large windows let in plenty of sunlight to show off the bright fall colors in this Michigan farmhouse. Tall glass vases on the table display fall's bounty—pumpkins, gourds and autumn branches—while farm-inspired dishware continues the nature theme.  The contents of the vases can easily be switched out with seasonal decor to match entertaining needs.   

  • Autumn glow

    To create a low centerpiece that encourages conversations even across the table, group fall-hue pillar candles of different heights on top of a wood cutting board. Finish the look with dried oranges, fall gourds and bittersweet. For coordinating place settings, top each napkin with a single fall leaf, and tie a velvety ribbon around the middle.

  • Harvest table

    An easy grouping of seasonal items and colors brings autumn to your tabletop.

    Orange and white pumpkins plus yellow chrysanthemums in a sunny yellow container create an eye-catching centerpiece. Elevate some of the pumpkins for added flair.

  • Wheat and corn centerpiece

    Create a simple fall centerpiece using wheat and dried corn. Start by filling a container with floral foam. Insert wheat stalks so they fan out around the edges of the foam, then top with ears of corn. For special-occasion place settings, attach a name card to an extra cob set on each plate.
