I strive to do things a little out of the box while at the same time keeping the traditions alive. Fall tablescapes are traditionally done in fall colors, deep shades of oranges, reds, and browns but, this year I am seeing a bit of a twist on the traditional way and I like it.
Fall Tablescapes with a Twist
Bring on the Pumpkins
As I have mentioned in previous posts I love tablescapes that have a lot of natural elements in them and my favorite fall tablescapes today are filled with nature. Pumpkins are a sign that fall is here and give that traditional vibe. Choosing to change their color to soft pastels can add a special twist to your fall tablescape.
Buy different size pumpkins so you can make some interesting arrangements. If you’re creating a centerpiece, having a base with a low wall will help to create more stability and using pumpkins of varying sizes will look nice. Adding fresh greenery or babies breath is a nice finishing touch. The babies breath will last longer than just green clippings but, not to fear, you can replace them easily giving a fresh new look weekly.
Decorating for fall doesn’t have to be complicated. Bringing the outside in does the job for you, like pine cones placed strategically at each place setting makes for the perfect fall tablescapes. Remember it’s about creating a warm cozy atmosphere, just like fall naturally creates for us.
There is nothing better than a warm pumpkin spiced latte or coffee drink to bring in the fall. As always I like to keep it natural by making it with organic ingredients.
Organic Pumpkin Spice Latte
2 – cups of Almond Milk
2 – Tablespoons organic canned pumpkin
2 – Tablespoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon of an equal combination of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice
1-2 shots espresso (or 1/2 cup of strong brewed organic coffee)
In a saucepan combine milk, pumpkin, and cook on medium heat while stirring until steaming.
Remove from heat, stir in vanilla and spices.
Whisk until it froths
Pour into a large mug and then add your espresso or coffee.
