We all want the perfect table setting for fall festivities but for some of us it’s easier said than done… The experts at Pottery Barn in Town Center are here to help! Here are five tips to consider when taking on this task in the coming months. 

START FROM THE CENTER

Pretty basic, we know, but a fundamental step in your decorating journey! It’s important to clear off your table and start with a clean slate. You’ll then want to arrange your table runners, centerpieces, and dinnerware to ensure a balanced table throughout.

NEVER GO TOO HIGH

Centerpieces. Centerpieces. Centerpieces. We love em’ but they can be a major intrusion when it comes to conversation at the dinner table. Make sure before your guests arrive that nothing is in the way of you and your friends enjoying each other’s company!

DON’T BE AFRAID TO USE COLOR

It may seem daunting but colors are your friend! When staying within the same color palette, try to use different textures and patterns to create some depth.  If you plan on using multiple colors it’s better to keep patterns simple and clean. Fall tones are a beautiful backdrop for any dinner party so use them while you can – but wisely 😉

LAYER IT UP

A simple layering of place mats and dinnerware can pack a lot of sophistication into your fall soirée – so start stacking!

SHOW YOUR PERSONALITY

Have fun! This table should reflect your personality and most importantly make you feel warm and fuzzy inside at the sight of your new creation!
