Fall is the perfect time to spruce up your kitchen table decor with all the colors and textures of the season. With the warm tones, rustic elements, and cozy feel of Fall, there are endless possibilities to create beautiful tablescapes. Whether you are hosting Thanksgiving dinner for your guests, having friends over for a cozy dinner party, or simply want to add some Fall flair to your kitchen, these gorgeous and easy fall kitchen table decor ideas will inspire you and help you create a warm and inviting atmosphere in your home.
One of the most popular ways to decorate your kitchen table for fall is to use the warm colors of the season. For example, you can create a stunning centerpiece with a variety of pumpkins and gourds. Add in some votive candles for a warm glow. When decorating with real or faux pumpkins, I love mixing minis with medium sized pumpkins for an interesting collection. You can also mix and match different shades of greens, oranges, yellows, and browns in your table linens, dinnerware, and napkins for a cohesive and inviting look.

Another beautiful way to add some fall flair to your kitchen or dining table is to incorporate natural elements such as wood, leaves, and stems. Create a simple yet stunning centerpiece with a wooden tray or box filled with pumpkins, faux greenery, and dried leaves. You can also use nature-themed dinnerware like the ones I’m using here for a rustic look. A plaid table runner and plaid napkins make this table feel seasonaly cozy. Pressed oak leaves scattered on the table and sideboard add a natural, seasonal charm. See this natural Fall kitchen table idea right here.
There are plenty of fall accents and decor items that can help you create a cozy and inviting kitchen table. For instance, you can use plaid napkins or a cozy scarf for a runner to bring in some texture and pattern. You can also add some fall-themed plates, bowls, or mugs to your table setting. Use some autumnal-shaped cookie cutters as napkin rings. You can also incorporate some seasonal flowers in a simple glass vase for a stunning Fall centerpiece like I did here with these limelight hydrangeas. Copper cutlery and navy blue woven placemats complete this look. See this elegant & colourful Fall table idea here.
If you want a more relaxed and simple kitchen table look for Fall, consider using a neutral color scheme for a soft look. Add natural elements like acorns, pinecones, pumpkins, moss and Fall leaves to a wooden box for a simple centerpiece. Use white Baby Boo white pumpkins on dinnerware with soft white linen napkins. Nix the tablecloth for an easy-breezy feel, and keep your Fall decor in blacks, whites, greys, browns and cream colours. See this neutral Fall tablescape idea with a DIY dough bowl centerpiece here.
Play with Jewel Tones
On the flip side, if you want a richer looking kitchen table include colours like burgundy, navy blue, teal green and turquoise in your decor. You can create a DIY floral garland table runner as an Fall table centerpiece like this one, and then complement it with glassware and textiles in similar colours. A long floral garland like this looks especially beautiful on a rectangular farmhouse table. Use real or faux pumpkins in shades of blue, and you can even add apples or berries to the centerpiece for more colour and texture. I love the look of rich, colorful florals for a stunning Autumn table.
