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!

  • Mackenzie and I used to spend so long dilly-dallying over what to watch, it would be time for bed before we even started a movie. More than ever right now, we need escapism, and looking forward to your evening in, is part of that! Here’s what we've been watching (& eating and drinking and wearing too…) every evening on @skytv (which has Netflix & box sets on it too). 🍿🍷🍫 #ad

  • #ad We must focus on finding the positives where we can at the moment and for me, part of that’s wearing bright colours around the house. Wearing colour has been proven to help lift your mood so I’m stocking up on comfy home clothes in bold colours and pretty printed wrap dresses. This sunny yellow and leopard combo is from @walmart shot a couple of weeks ago in Notting Hill. How are you staying positive this week? #WalmartFashion http://liketk.it/2MdDt @liketoknow.it #liketkit

Being at home so much has got me thinking about ways in which I can be more sustainable with my fashion choices. Choosing ethical brands and renting pieces is a good way to start. In such a strange time, I’m focusing on the positives where I can. Let’s hope it won’t be long before we can all be out in the sun again ☀️
