Fall Weddings in New England: Four Tablescape Must-Haves

Though every season in the northeast has its charm, Fall seems to be the favorite for New Englanders and New England weddings. The evenings get a little chillier, you grab that extra layer before you leave the house or office to cozy up with your loved ones. Since fall is so gentle and picturesque, the season is a great jumping-off point for designing a charming, warm wedding. This autumnal mood board pulls inspiration from our favorite season, and we’ve included our top 4 tablescape must-haves to pull it together and serve up fall’s beautiful bounty.


1. Natural Texture: Bringing in fall’s quintessential outdoor textures to your tablescape is a fun way for guests to experience the season at their seats. This Rustico Grey Wood Charger from Peak brings a woodsy, yet refined texture at each place setting.

2. A soft backdrop for autumn colors to pop: Notice in the mood board how the rich color of the apple and torte really pop on the table? Let nature’s colors speak for themselves. This Flaxen Irish Linen from Party Rentals Ltd. softens the table while keeping an overall warm, yet neutral backdrop to let fall colors shine.



3. Weathered Elements/Antiques: Fall just feels a little more “weathered”, doesn’t it? Like your favorite pair of worn-in leather boots. Add this Antique Flatware Set to your table from Peak for an interesting, aged element. Or pull in details like leather or suede – tied around a menu – for a rich, vintage feel.

4. Warmth: Accent the tablescape with warmth and glow. Try glassware that features a hint of gold or amber, like Borrowed Blu’s Siren Collection in Fawn/Gold or Oro/Gold. Candles are a must!
