7 Dining Table Decorating Ideas to Try This Autumn

Bring in Gold Accents

Warm up your table with a variety of gold elements, such as a vase for seasonal flowers, tapered candle holders, or a copper-colored ice bucket for having drinks with friends.


Make it moody

From Autumn to winter, black tableware and decorative accents will keep your table looking elegant and moody. Not to mention that the dinnerware will make whatever vibrant seasonal dishes you serve on it stand out.

Display Seasonal Veggies

Fill a wooden bowl with your favourite seasonal veggies, as shown in this kitchen, for a more contained display.

Cluster Tealights

A smattering of tealights may create a dark atmosphere in any room of your home. Consider putting them in clusters along the centre of the table and on a wooden cake stand to give dimension.

Opt for coloured glasses

Sometimes all you need is a decent set of tinted glasses, like the amber ones in this dining room, to lend a little drama to your tablescape.

Leave vases empty

Filling your vases with real or imitation flowers isn't always essential. Take a look at this tablescape, which features a couple orange glass vases. For good measure, add taper candles in gold holders.

Use Wildflowers

Bright yellow wildflowers will brighten up a country kitchen or rustic breakfast table this autumn. An antique vase will make the table seem like it has a tale to tell, which will help to facilitate the conversation. It's the ideal autumnal centrepiece for a meal that feels casual yet thoughtful and special.
