A purple pear tablescape for a fall party, Friendsgiving gathering, or Thanksgiving dinner.
I immediately said yes, but as the time came closer to decorate a fall table I realized I didn’t have a plan!
When I created my fall home tour timelapse video, I had an exact plan and knew how I wanted everything to look before I got started.
For this table, I knew I wanted it to have hints of purple, white, gold, and green, but I didn’t know exactly what items I would find in stores with these colors.
So before I went shopping I made a list of essentials that I wanted to find for this fall table, like a magnolia garland, pears, purple flowers, and taper candle holders.
Although I couldn’t find the magnolia garland I was looking for I did find some really pretty bay leaf garlands that I layered with fig stems and flower stems.
Once I had found everything on my list I headed home.
I didn’t know exactly how I would layer all of the items on the table, but I decided I would figure it out as I went and record the whole process.
I started by laying out a long sheer piece of fabric (that I purchased at a craft store) in the center of the table.
Next, I layered the garlands and 3 different types of faux stems on top of the table.
Then I staggard the candle holders throughout the center of the table decor.
And finally, I added the dinnerware, napkins, and flatware.
Originally I had planned to place the pears on the dinnerware, but they looked a bit lost in the bowls, so I decided to place them in the garland display instead.
And I’m really happy with how this whole table came together!
I think the key to this tablescape was adding a variety of stemmed layers to the garland to give it a fuller look.
Also, the fresh pears give it a really nice dimension and tie in the golden color of the candle holders.
