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!

  • The most memorable, happy evening... have you seen my stories? The @ilgufo_official show was just gorgeous, I want 12 more kids now 😂 🍼
  • Time to explore Florence this morning...
  • Ciao Firenze!! Off to dinner as recommended by you guys!! Can you tell I’m excited to be here... 🇮🇹
  • *Edit / update... when I say ‘island’ I mean reclaimed table, Ie small, and moveable! 
A tour of our kitchen so far, and I’m trying to convince @mackenziehunkin we have space for an island in the middle, AKA my wine-sipping station. Hubby says no. But he likes to cook, so once I’ve put Honor to bed I love coming down, propping up a stool and pouring a little glass of 🍷 to unwind. What do you think of our carpentry skills?! 😂 We’ve got space right? Vote YES below so I can convince him! 🙋🏻‍♀️👍
  • ITALIA 🇮🇹 I’m coming for you! I can’t wait to visit one of my favorite countries this week! Firenze... where should we go? Tips please ♥️ 🍝 👠
  • Happy 2nd Birthday to our darling girl 🎂 
Today we skipped having a big fancy party. Instead, we did all of Honor’s favourite things... jumped in muddy puddles, fed the goats, stroked a bunny and saw a newborn sheep at the farm (his name is Jacob), slid down a steep slide, baked a chocolate cake (and ate it), opened presents, read books, rode a giant rocking horse, danced to Peppa Pig, and ate more cake with her grandparents, auntie, uncle and cousins. 
After I put her to bed, we heard her singing, ‘Happy Birthday to you’, over and over on the monitor ☺️
Family is everything, and I’m so grateful for mine. 💫
  • #ad Finally had a moment to reflect and get myself ready for the new decade. So I sat down to get my goals and hopes down on paper, and mixed myself a @ketelonebotanical spritz to sip! The overarching theme: taking extra time to switch off, and enjoying the small, everyday moments more. Like saying yes to the occasional vodka cocktail (bonus points when it has no added sugar or artificial sweeteners!). What kind of #BotanicalSpritz will you be drinking to toast the new decade? #ketelbotanical #CucumberandMint⁠
  • Found the house from The Holiday... almost! *and yes I know they built it basically out of cardboard for the movie, which made me almost 😭 when I found out. But the pub was real! ♥️👍 🍻
