As we get settled back inside for the cooler weather to come, we begin thinking about ways to stay warm and cozy. One of those ways is preparing meals for our family and friends; spending a lot of time entertaining around our kitchen or dining room tables. So let’s take a look at some great seasonal ideas for dressing up your tablescapes. At Sturbridge Yankee Workshop we have plenty to choose from when it comes to setting your table right this fall.
If your like many of us here in Maine, your trying to hold on to the last final days of summer. The bright, warm sunshine and beautiful flowers are fading away as the leaves begin to turn. A great transitional decor theme for those of you still needing a bit of fresh air and nature, is Sunflowers! We have quite the variety of sunflower themed products, but in regards to your lovely table, consider our Sunflower Placemat or the Sunflower Table Runner to match. Both will provide a casual setting while bringing the beauty of cheery sunflowers indoors.
Our Autumn Leaves Placemat (seen above) is another great harvest way to decorate your table. Our leaves placemat is perfect for every day use but when paired with our Autumn Leaves Table Runner, your place settings will look spectacular. Another idea if your into leaves is our Maple Leaf Placemat, featuring an intricate lace design of a Maple Leaf, that will provide a more formal look. The leaf’s veins on this placemat are those extra details you appreciate this time of year; coming in your choice of earth, goldenrod, or paprika color.
Now when it comes to Halloween, your options at Sturbridge are endless! To begin with, we know you’ll love our Autumn Patch Trivets & Basket Set. A set of 6 braided trivets featuring a different harvest image on each. The orange, gold and brown braided border frames the whimsical folk imagery by folk artist Susan Burd. Next, we have a couple more collections that could be the big hit at your party this year. The Black Cat Placemat and Black Cat Table Runner feature a spooky black cat silhouette atop an orange and white background. Or maybe your more in the mood to cast a spell, so consider the matching Witch Placemat and Witch Table Runner, that should do the trick.
We know creating an inviting and warm environment is important to you, so perhaps you’ll consider one of the above ideas for your country home. As the star of many family dinners and other events to come, don’t forget your tables when decorating this season.
