This past weekend, I got a bit creative and set a buffet style table for fall here in the house. It’s one of my favorite ways to set a table when we entertain. So I thought I would share what I came up with. You might have figured out that this will be a “woods and whites” edition because it’s my favorite. Also, keep reading for a few tips that I use in our home decor that I think you may like.
Where to start….
The first thing I did was figure out what I was going to use as a centerpiece. I wanted something neutral for fall but in my favorite woods and whites tones. This long white runner added a lot of texture which I love. I then added the long wooden tray that Deb made year ago to display a pumpkin and this leaf garland. I love this garland because of the berries and the wooden leaves added throughout. And by the way, the jack-o-lantern was one that I gave a makeover to last year.
Secondly, I grabbed everything from our stash that I need for entertaining, which, of course, includes dishes and silverware. I have a ton of different options when it comes to dishes because I pick them up here and there when I see the at a great price. For this buffet style look, I chose these stoneware dishes that match great with the woods and whites color in our home. They are great quality and at a fabulous price for the set. These bamboo kitchen utensils are perfect for the fall season, as well.
Once I chose the dishes and silverware that I wanted, I started adding the other pieces that we will need. I included wooden coasters, a wooden salad bowl, and a white cake plate that when turned over can be used for chips and dip. This particular one is out of stock but I found one that matches these stoneware dishes.
The coffee mugs are included in the set of dishes, so I added these gorgeous glass water goblets that look like antique ones to me. My wooden egg tray and the domed glass cake plate are some of my favorite things because I usually have both of these within my decor. And that leads me to another tip that I share quite often over on social media.
I use my domed cake plate within my home decor probably 95% of the time. It usually holds fake baked goods, which I think look so cute placed on your countertops or kitchen island.
And, then lastly, I placed some black candle sticks all around the tray and between some of my pieces. And, I used these ribbed candles which are perfect for this fall season and also added a lot of texture and interest to this space.
For me, seeing other people’s ideas sparks some creativity in me. So at the very least, I hope this gives you some inspiration for your own decor when entertaining.
