Setting the Autumn Supper Table


Though September marks a time of transition, it truly catches the best of both worlds -- the end of summer, when everyone can take a breath (and not sweat upon walking outside!), and the beginning of fall, when leaves change and harvests begin.

The autumn Supper Club table color palette is inspired by the red apple and the wheat harvest. Neutrals and reds take tones of copper and wood, and blooms of fall flowers catch the color with effortless expression.

To begin, I took leftover labeled bourbon bottles from my and Alex's wedding reception bourbon bar and stuffed each with a few floral stems.. My florist recommended the following early fall blooms:

  • Sunflower

  • Red/peach rose

  • Berry spray

  • Green dianthus

  • Unbloomed lily

  • Bells of Ireland Molucella

  • Eucalyptus

Candle votives found homes in copper holders, sprinkled across the table. The wood table provides a rich foundation without the need for a tablecloth. White dishes are decked with DIY apple napkin rings, a total crowd-pleaser. Water glasses and bourbon glasses can be placed for pouring, as well as room for the beer flights

I anchored table ends with a roasted whole chicken on one and a rustic loaf on the other.

I hope your autumn table welcomes as much warmth from your guests as the decor!
