Shades and new colors, summer gives way to autumn, and with the new season everything changes a bit. The weather gets, slowly, colder and colder, the days get shorter, but the poetry of warm and soft colors give a unique atmosphere.

Autumn also means more time to spend at home, moments at the table with friends for a leisurely lunch or dinner. For these occasions you can impress your guests with a beautifully decorated and set table.

Some ideas for you:



1. Classic and essential

Classicism always pays off. When you want to put your guests at ease, you can choose to set a simple yet refined table. A white, ivory or natural tablecloth is the choice for you, match plain napkins and use white ceramic plates and underplates. You can recreate the autumn atmosphere with a beautiful centerpiece made of dried flowers or leaves and pine cones, or you can choose small themed decorations to mark the seats. You'll look great!


2. Quirky and original

Every once in a while a dash of originality doesn't hurt. If you want to make your table remembered by your guests, you can decide to indulge in colors. Start from the base and choose a tablecloth with a strong, bold color: a taupe or deep blue. Then create the contrast with plates that are also colored, choosing a shade that matches that of the tablecloth. Use pumpkins of different sizes and shades to give that extra autumn touch. Playing with originality will be fun


3. Shabby but Chic

Reusing and repurposing is sometimes the winning choice. Especially for recreating an autumn table where your guests can sample some seasonal dishes and feel at home. Start by choosing a tablecloth, which, in this case, can be linen, search your grandmother's trunk or cupboard for some beautiful crystal glasses, and find a candelabra that won't go unnoticed to decorate a bit. Use some rope placemats and create a centerpiece using dried leaves, pinecones, seasonal fruits, and pumpkins, perhaps placing it all in an old wicker basket. Your table will look perfect!
