Neutral Fall Tablescape
Welcome back to my home! I did a little crafting to complete my fall tablescape this year and today I’m going to take you along with me!

Fall Place Settings
When creating my place settings, I like to add lots of layers and I always start with my base layer. I chose to use grapevine wreaths in place of chargers for this tablescape. The color and texture is great for a fall tablescape!

Since I’m using mostly greens and browns for my fall decor this year, I wanted to find some plates with a brown pattern. These Royal Stafford Brown Pheasant plates are from Mercari and Etsy. The pattern and color is beautiful. I knew I wanted to add a salad plate to each place setting so I decided to take some plain white plates and pretty them up!
You can purchase inexpensive glass or ceramic plates at Walmart, the Dollar Store, or a thrift store. I picked mine up from the Dollar Store. After washing them, I used A Maker’s Studio Wheat Stencil and Gold Metallic Ceramic Paint to stencil this wheat artwork onto the salad plates. If you watch the YouTube video you will see me using this silicone squeegee to press the paint down into the stencil. It’s worth having in my opinion. I have this detail stylus tool and love it!
The Ceramic Paint is so nice to work with. It’s a no bake ceramic paint and it dries in 12-14 hours. You will need to hand wash any dishes that you embellish with this paint, but it is microwave and food safe! Think of all the endless ways you could customize plates, platters, or glasses!
Isn’t the wheat artwork so pretty? The detail is amazing. Every single time I use A Maker’s Studio stencils and pull them up to reveal the artwork, I’m amazed! The detail is really impressive and I rarely ever have any ink or paint bleed outside of the artwork.
I decided to place moss green linen napkins between my plates to bring some green into each place setting and help highlight my wheat stenciled salad plates.
To complete each place setting, I added a few stems of dried wheat on top of each plate. This element adds some texture and interest. I love how the dried stems mirror the wheat on the plates!
Neutral Fall Tablescape Place Cards
Adding place cards to a table is another way to add interest and help bring a tablescape all together. For these place cards, I trimmed some kraft paper down to size and folded it in half. Then I took A Maker’s Studio Woodland Creatures stencil and stenciled an acorn on the end of place card. I used a mix of Metallic Gold and Metallic Copper Gel Ink for this.
To finish off the place cards, I plan to write names on them using a dark brown sharpie pen. You could also use stamps to customize your place cards and I think that would look really cute too.
Green and Brown Fall Table Centerpiece
For my centerpiece I started with a large oval basket. I love using a basket, tray, cutting board, or riser to anchor my centerpiece. It groups everything together and looks visually appealing but it also makes it easy to move the centerpiece when it’s time to serve dinner.
First, I placed several stems of Real Touch Seeded Eucalyptus into the basket. Then I took several of my Pretty Painted Faux pumpkins and placed them on top of the eucalyptus. I filled in any holes with small white pumpkins, small grapevine pumpkins, and tallow berries.
Finally, I added in a few DIY fabric acorns and some small, pretty cutting boards from my friend Aimee over at Rustic Occasions. Her little cutting boards are just about the cutest little things I have ever seen! She will be doing a restock in a few weeks so make sure you go follow her on Instagram and keep an eye on her Etsy shop. She always sells out each restock!
What do you think about my green and brown fall decor? I’ve had a few friends say that they can not believe I didn’t decorate with pastels this year. ha! I don’t know what has gotten into me. The browns, taupes, and greens just have my heart this year…I’m really loving the rich tones and I hope you do too!
French Wingback Dining Chairs
Also, did you see a peek of my new French wingback chairs?! Take a wild guess on where I purchased them. 😉 If you said Facebook Marketplace, you were right! ha! I’ve been looking for a pair of matching wingback chairs for my dining table on Facebook since we moved into this home about a year ago.
I LOVE these chairs and I was so thrilled to come across them. They have a bit of a story and I’ll share that another time, but I think they look so beautiful on either end of the table . They really complete the dining room.
