Weekly Spotlight: Autumn Tabletop Accents

Wednesday, September 27th, 2017

As we move from September to October we’re bringing out more pumpkins, leaves and harvest decor to fully celebrate the season. One of the best ways to add fall charm to your home is with festive place settings and tabletop accents. Take a look below at some of our assortment, and view more (for all seasons) here.

Placemat and Table Runner Pairs

Along with many other new decor in our Holiday 2017 catalog are placemat and table runner pairs that make decorating a complementary table easy. You’ve seen our linen-like polyester placemats and runners before, and this season we’re introducing the Autumn Harvest and Autumn Maple & Butterfly designs. The Paprika Autumn Lace is also crafted from easy-care polyester (making holiday cleanup oh-so-simple), and both pieces feature a vibrant paprika color that is made elegant with oak leaves and acorns. When you shop our Holiday catalog, you can get free shipping on all three of these collections!

The Magic of Melamine

Harvest Melamine Dinnerware

Our Harvest Melamine Dinnerware made its first appearance in our Fall 2017 catalog for good reason. Melamine’s durability and functionality make these bowls and plates perfect for entertaining a large group of family and friends, a rambunctious group of kids, as well as your immediate family during normal mealtime. They are dishwasher safe and shatterproof, and have we mentioned the warm orange finish that is ideal for autumn?

Crow & Pumpkin Braided Jute Trivet

We would not be true to ourselves if we did not mention a braided jute tabletop accent, and this particular trivet combines country crows with plump pumpkins for a welcoming harvest accent. Use it to protect tabletop and countertop surfaces from hot dishes and plates, or simply lay out to accent autumn collectibles and decor.

Complementing & Contrasting Home Accents

Combine different textures while maintaining a common theme for a seasonal look that is both complementary and contrasting. In this space, a braided jute basket adorned with pumpkins complements the hooked wool pillow, which happens to feature the same imagery as the doormat. The Black Crow Candelabra creates a 3-dimensional look brought out of the doormat and pillow, while the orange faux leaves and seagrass bench seats maintain the natural and warm feel.
