Leaf Harvest Table Runner | Sturbridge Yankee WorkshopThe Fall Centerpiece – the perfect way to mark the harvest season, add a little more warmth to your home and prepare for visiting friends and family. For some autumn inspiration, today we’re offering up some ideas to create a simple yet stunning seasonal centerpiece.

Table Linens

Placemats and Table Runners can be used all over your table, of course, but you can use a Table Runner or a Placemat as a setting for a more elaborate centerpiece. Use matching fabric or complementing colors – whatever suits your style best.

Baskets and Containers

Ideal for floral arrangements, holding pumpkins or apples, flower blossoms, candy and other seasonal goods, the centerpiece possibilities are endless with baskets and decorative containers.

Minor Details

Small details can make any centerpiece look larger than life. Get out your favorite fall collectibles, display seasonally-inspired tealight holders and/or mini wreaths, and collect some pinecones and fallen leaves to scatter around your table (or place in a basket, vase or container). These can be quickly placed and require minimal freshening up throughout the season.

Festive Place Settings for the Harvest Season

Wednesday, September 26th, 2012

If you’re like many of us here in Maine, you might be wishing the summer wouldn’t end. The bright, warm sunshine and beautiful flowers are fading away, and the leaves have begun to turn. But this season also means more time spent indoors preparing meals for our family and friends; as the holiday entertaining will soon begin. Here we feature a few of our ideas for dressing up your kitchen and dining environments. From placemats to centerpieces, at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop there is plenty to choose from when it comes to setting your table right this fall.


A Leafy Place Setting

Leaves are available in all shapes and sizes at SYW. With quilted and lace designs, there is sure to be a placemat for your home that works well with both casual or formal decor. To the left we feature our colorful set of 4, Quilted Leaf Placemats. Made of 100% machine washable cotton with a padded fill to protect your tabletop. These placemats are on sale now during our Harvest Sale for $44.95. Another placemat option at Sturbridge, is our made in the USA Maple Leaf Placemat. This leaf shaped placemat in contrast, is crafted of an easy-care polyester with the look of heavier cotton. Featuring detailed edges and available in three color choices: Earth, Goldenrod, or Paprika. Either option would be suitable for your dining table or breakfast bar this fall.

Harvest Table Center

The table center offers an opportunity for a lot of creativity this season. Make the center of any table the focal point of your meal time gatherings and holiday get togethers. For a tabletop display that’s perfect through the Thanksgiving season, try our new Harvest Table Runner shown below.

This black wool runner with scattered wool felt leaves, provides a blank canvas to decorate as you wish. The 36″L Table Runner is on sale now for $49.95 and is a Sturbridge Yankee Workshop exclusive item. Next up is our, Autumn Leaves Table Runner. Made of 100% natural braided jute, this reversible table runner is an Eco-friendly option at just $34.95, 39.95 this fall; (36″L or 48″L). Place candles or other centerpiece decor in the center of your table runner to make the scene warm and inviting. You might consider using either of these table runners to decorate your mantle space as well.

It’s in the Details
When decorating your dining spaces, don’t forget about the small accents here and there to really make your place settings reach their full potential. Our new Leaf Napkin Rings are a good place to start. A set of 4 metal leaves are painted in orange, red, mustard and brown; allowing for each guest to have their own design. Crackling is applied to the tops of the leaves to represent the leaf veins and appear more realistic. In terms of candlelight, our Wheat Candle Holders come in two sizes and boast a tall bundle of wheat, tied in a bow. Complete with an antique bronze finish, both the 12″H and 14″H can hold a three inch pillar, and are on sale for $29.95, 34.95. As the star of many family dinners and other events soon to come, don’t forget your tables when decorating this season.
