How to Create a Fall Outdoor Tablescape

Enjoy a lovely meal outside this fall… using décor straight from nature.


I’m so excited to share my Fall Outdoor Tablescape with ya’ll today! I had so much fun creating this table spread and loved that I used mostly natural elements in my décor!


When my friend Tara of Lehman Lane invited me to take part in her Fall Outdoor Décor Tour I was so excited… and then quickly remembered I don’t have a decorated fall porch to share this year. Our rental home has a lovely front porch and I can just about imagine how beautiful and cozy it would look with our deck furniture on it. But the less we bring to this house, the less we have to move back to our own home when the time comes! So all that’s gracing our covered porch this fall is some mum plants 🙂

So, I decided to show you a little different outdoor décor today. Anyone that knows me, knows I LOVE eating outside. So I thought instead of eating off of paper plates this time around, I’d use our good dinnerware and set a beautiful fall tablescape! If you want to grab a Pumpkin Spice Latte or a mug of Chai Tea, go ahead! And then come along as I give you a little tour of our picnic spot.

I’ve wanted to set a pretty outdoor tablescape for quite some time now. We’ve been having the most gorgeous fall weather and this week seemed like the perfect opportunity to get out there and do it!

As I thought of decorating my table, I knew I wanted mostly natural elements to decorate with. The trees are so vibrant in yellows right now and the leaves looked beautiful against the white plates!

I love these pretty little white pumpkins my husband brought home from the store this week and they were perfect for spreading out on the table.

 I used some branches right from the trees to create a tall centerpiece. Candles always add such a cozy feel to any meal and I knew they’d be the perfect to add to my table.

One of my very favorite plants are succulents and I knew I wanted to use these plants on my table. These two plants are actually from my sister’s wedding this past July. I was her maid of honour and the succulent was in my bouquet. The florist had said they can’t be replanted as their roots have been “stripped”…. but after the wedding I stuck the flowers in waterbottles and they drove the 1,000 km home with us. I planted them and they’re thriving! So proud of my nearly-nonexistent green thumb!

I love the contrast of the yellow and red leaves!! I had thought about buying a fall bouquet but really loved using the leaves right from the woods behind the table!

Aren’t these mini pumpkins the cutest thing ever? As soon as we enter a grocery store, my eyes are drawn to pumpkins. Any shape, color and size. Imperfections and all.

I’m so happy how my tablescape turned out and here’s hoping we have a nice, long warm fall so we can do this again!

    Kendra, this is beautiful! I would love to enjoy a meal (or two, or more!) around your table. I love that you used leaves from your yard to create that centerpiece, and those succulents and white pumpkins mix in perfectly!
