Monday Must-Haves: Fall Table Settings and Decor

Monday, August 7th, 2017

While there’s still plenty of time to enjoy the rest of summer, we don’t blame you for thinking ahead to pumpkins, turkeys, leaves, gourds and all things fall. Today, we are thinking about [fall] centerpieces and tablescapes, and the five must-have home accents to make any autumn occasion comfortable and well decorated (including some suggestions from our Fall 2017 catalog).

1. Table Runner: Forest Friends Table Runner, Crow & Pumpkin Braided Table Runner

A table runner keeps your table and dining room decoratives grounded; use similar colors and textures of the table runner in wall accents and other decor, and keep your table adorned with fall charm even when there aren’t guests surrounding it.

2. Placemats: Autumn Oak & Butterfly Placemat, ©Williamsburg Jacobean Placemat

Especially when matching or coordinating with the table runner, placemats can invigorate your place settings, and in many cases offer two looks in one.

3. Candles: Fall Leaves Pillar Candle

Set a romantic, lighthearted, welcoming, and most of all, cozy mood for Thanksgiving dinner and other events celebrating the harvest season. Add a warm scent or keep it flameless for worry-free accent lighting.

4. Dinnerware: Harvest Melamine Dinnerware

Durable, dishwasher safe and decorative; melamine dinnerware is a must-have for holidays and special celebrations.

5. Floral Touches: Mini Autumn Wreath, Green & Red Berry Stem, Faux Mini Sunflowers

Red and orange flowers, berries, candle rings and other natural touches bring any festive look together. Faux florals are ideal options for keeping a look throughout the fall months, but placing fresh picked flowers into rustic tin vases or a display bowl adds a personal touch that can be swapped out.

Weekly Spotlight: Five New Prints | Fall 2017

Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017

View of New Hampshire from Vermont Print | Fred SwanFor the first Weekly Spotlight of August we turn our attention to five new prints from our Fall 2017 catalog. All five are made in the USA and done by three artists with different, yet charming styles. Display on your walls all year long or coordinate with your fall home accents once summer is officially over.

Fred Swan

View of New Hampshire from Vermont is a picturesque print with exquisite depth. Artist Fred Swan has given us a perspective from the top of a hill, overlooking a quaint farmhouse, barn and the rolling mountains of New England.

Grandpa's Giant Pumpkin Print | Bonnie WhiteBonnie White

In true Bonnie White fashion, Lucky 13 and Grandpa’s Giant Pumpkin both charm us and offer their own form of entertainment with the use of people and animals. The latter is perfect for fall; pumpkins, colorful leaves and fun family gatherings are quintessential harvest elements.

Lucky 13 aims to turn the tables on Halloween folklore by showing costumed children having fun – not avoiding – the cute black cats in town.
