Putting together a late summer tablescape is a great way to make the transition from summer decor to fall decor. I like to start with our dining room decor. I’ve packed away the pops of bright summer colors and replaced them with some warmer tones.
I love using this copper pitcher to hold flower arrangements for tablescape decor. For this late summer tablescape, I filled it with stems that I bought at JoAnn Fabric and Craft recently. I used a circle of floral foam in the bottom of the pitcher. I had to cut it into two pieces to fit.
The warm colors are a pretty way to change things before going full on with fall decor. The pumpkins aren’t coming out yet! By using the foam in the pitcher, the stems can be arranged at different heights.
The pineapple napkin rings were a gift from Gloria for Mother’s Day this year. They go well with lots of my other pineapple decor, including the salt and pepper shakers. They can be used year round.
I paired white plates with gold chargers and neutral napkins. Using mixed metals is something I’ve been doing for a long while and I’m pleased to see that it’s currently on trend. The white plates are ones I frequently use for tablescapes because they can be dressed up with napkins and chargers to match the season. These plates were purchased at the Dollar Tree several years ago and they have held up so well.
Using small vintage bowls with an added bloom is an easy way to add a pop of color. These bowls are part of my depression era Iris Herringbone Pattern by Jeanette Glass Company.
I’m using more mixed metals on the side buffet. The tiered copper trays were purchased at TJ Maxx, the tiered marbled tray from Home Goods. The round marble tray with copper handles was another gift from Gloria.
Using warm tones and mixed metals is a pretty way to transition from summer to fall. There will be pumpkins added to the decor soon enough. For now, I’m enjoying this look.

Do you slowly transition from summer to fall or do you jump right in with fall decor?

Late Summer Tablescape
Changing out the front door wreath is another way to make the transition from summer into fall. This late summer wreath that I made a couple of years ago is a great way to ease into fall decor.
We share at lots of these great parties.
