Table decoration in autumn: how to make your festive table

The golden October delights and warms us with its sunny embrace and we hope it will last a bit longer, despite the inevitable winter cold. It is also time to create a cozy atmosphere in your own home. Or as the Scandinavians say it is beautiful: enjoy the hygge feeling at home. Feeling homely and relaxed not only reading the book by the fireplace or drinking tea, but also at the table. That is why it is important to create a moody table decoration in the fall, especially if you expect guests or pleasantly surprise your own family.

The beauty of fall decoration is that nature itself takes care of it – with gorgeous autumn leaves in red, gold and orange, with shiny chestnuts and bright chrysanthemums and of course … with pumpkins!

Bring nature to the autumnal table

Yes, many are the gifts of nature – especially in autumn. And fortunately these are abundant around us. Even during a short walk in the forest or in the park you can already collect a lot of natural deco elements for your festive table decoration in autumn.

Above all, the beautiful autumn leaves, which were dyed as if by an invisible hand in whimsical, warm nuances. You can either scatter the leaves over the table or put them in transparent glasses. Placed on trees, a table decoration looks fabulous – completely natural and puristic at the same time.

The beautiful burgundy leaves of the scabbard and its small dark berries are also real treasures that will beautify your table decoration originally. Just be careful with the berries, as they can stain the tablecloth. It is best to use glass containers or vases.

Walnuts, chestnuts and pumpkins – the perfect complement to autumn leaves and candles

Other natural deco elements of your autumn table decoration are chestnuts, walnuts, acorns, moss, dried twigs and mushrooms. Of course, there are also autumn flowers like autumn anemones, chrysanthemums, dahlias, gladioli, heather and tagetes. So not only your festive table shines, but also your daily table full of fresh accents and joie de vivre.

Driftwood lanterns, moss arrangements, red rosehips and black berries, large carved pumpkins on cake stands – everything is up to your creativity and enjoyment.

Chrysanthemums add an unmistakable charm to your autumnal table decoration

Harder fruit such as apples and pears, autumn leaves, pine cones and chestnuts or mini pumpkins are also suitable as original table cards or decoration for the party favors. These can be arranged in a variety of ways, using materials such as parcel tape, linen, yarn or straw as needed when tying or fastening.

Candles and lanterns – the ultimate mood-maker

It means here: experiment a lot and play with the light! Similar to the lighting design in the rooms, it is also about creating islands of light here. Especially oblong tables should be best decorated with multiple light sources, so that the contemplative mood spreads everywhere at the table.

If you have more time to design your table decoration, you can even cast candles yourself or make tealights and fairy lights. Large pillar candles can be decorated very effectively and above all very quickly and easily with cinnamon sticks, as can be seen in the picture below.

Smelling autumn at the table

The time of the light summer salads is definitely over and there are again some hearty dishes on the table. A nutty-scented pumpkin-cream soup or a forest-tasting mushroom cream soup, numerous delicious side dishes with autumn berries to meat dishes such as dumplings, cabbage rolls or roast, garnished with chestnut sauce: It smells wonderfully of autumn and cosiness!

Enjoy the golden season with full trains and pamper all senses at the same time!
