How To Create The Perfect Autumn Tablescape

This blog post is sponsored by OKA.

I love entertaining and being back in England is such a good excuse to get all my friends and family over for a catch up. There’s no better way to spend an Autumn evening than with a cosy dinner party and one of my fave brands OKA is the go-to for the best tableware. With Thanksgiving coming up as well as the festive holidays not too far off, I wanted to share with you all how I create a welcoming table that will suit all my entertaining needs. Follow my tips below and you can create the perfect autumn tablescape.

Have a theme

A theme can do wonders to set the mood of an evening and helps tie all aspects of a table together. For Autumn, nothing beats pumpkins. It may be the LA living but I like to use pumpkins in decorating (and cooking) all through November as well as for Halloween (see what I did with this year’s pumpkin here) so having them as table decorations is a great way to re-use them. Pumpkins in various sizes, shapes and shades of orange looks much better than having matching so don’t be afraid to use them all.

Use complementary colours

A colour palette in mind will also help your table look chic and well thought-out. Having the pumpkins to use made me think of oranges, browns and golds for my table and once you’ve decided on what colours you want to include, the rest of the decision making is easy! Metallic candlesticks, amber coloured glassware and tortoiseshell cutlery tie in perfectly with the miniature vases of red and orange flowers that I hid amongst the leaves on the table centrepiece.

OKA have tableware to suit all suits of colour schemes and ideas- from crisp white linen and classic ceramics to shagreen patterns and brightly coloured crockery.

Ivy

I love ivy (from now until January) and mixing types of ivy leaves (some with berries and some without) looks so beautiful on a table. Group it together in the middle of the table and trail it off at the end so the overall effect looks like a garland. For this dinner we wound ivy around the base of the candles and the bright green looks so beautiful in amongst the orange pumpkins and red roses. If you use ivy as your base there are hundreds of ways to dress it up- consider using tealights for a pretty evening glow, holly and berries when you’re doing a more wintery table or battery powered fairy lights that you can hide under leaves without causing a fire hazard!

Shop the products I used below and let me know what you use for a perfect Autumn table.

  • The love boat ♥️
Thank you Vegas for the best weekend ever!
  • Of course we were front of the queue when the @VenetianVegas pool opened this AM! #ad #VenetianVegas #VenetianCelebrates
  • We made it to Vegas baby!! Time for Mum & Dad to have some fun 💫 @venetianvegas #venetianvegas #ad #venetiancelebrates
  • Greengrocer tip! Ever wish your fruit and veggies wouldn’t wither as soon as you got them home?! Enter this clever little fruit and vegetable wash which gives them a new lease of life. All natural, no chemicals and no food waste! Link in bio 🥦🌶🍐🍅 http://liketk.it/2GLWX #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • I remember the first time I met Ralph Lauren. I was working at Vogue.com in London, and was flown to Moscow (yes Moscow!!) for the launch of his flagship store there. The runway show was epic: a live orchestra played, and afterwards we drank frozen vodkas shots with pickles, and ate supper at the ambassador’s home under a hundred candelabras. We danced til the sun came up. Tonight, I’m getting a sneak peek at his @skyatlanticuk documentary, #VeryRalph, which I’ve been DYING to see, and it was incredible! Catch it tomorrow on @skyatlanticuk, or on demand any time. #ad
  • #ad Friendsgiving has become a very happy tradition for me. Living in LA, all us Brits had families far away so to celebrate the holiday we would gather to cook, eat, drink, play games, and laugh for hours. I was naturally always in charge of cocktails and this year I’m making the @ketelonebotanical Botanical Spritz. So easy to make and so delicious with no sugar and no carbs- just add club soda and fresh fruit to your favourite varietal in a wine glass! Can’t wait to bring this tradition back to England this year! #PeachandOrangeBlossom #KetelBotanical #BotanicalSpritz
  • I had so much fun shopping for Honor at @ilgufo_official today- and I got to chat to the Italian heritage brand’s elegant CEO @alessandrachiavelli ... watch it all on my stories. How are Italians just always so impeccably chic!? #ad #ilgufo_official
  • Today we walked to the town square and listened to the trumpets salute our fallen soldiers, we watched the helicopters fly overhead, and we listened to the choir sing. I wish Honor could have met her brave great-grandfathers, who fought in the RAF and the army, but I shall make sure I tell her all about them, and that every year we will proudly wear our poppies. #LestWeForget #RemembranceSunday
  • Literally got my claws into him 🤣
True romance ♥️
Love you babes @mackenziehunkin
  • Writing down your dreams and goals is such a powerful way to start making them a reality - but when was the last time you took the time to do it? I have lots of plans for the year ahead (like creating our dream family home!) and @kikki.k dream journals are the perfect way to set the wheels in motion, inspired by @kristinakikkik and her book.

  • Note to self: wearing leather trousers and heels to a reclamation yard does not get you the best deals 💰 😂🔨
