October Vignettes: Blogger Home Tours
But first, I wish to thank Katrin from KreativK who kindly invited me to take part in an October Vignettes Series featuring 6 home decor bloggers – which today’s post is a part of. It’s a fantastic way to get decor inspiration from others who love crafting and decorating their homes for the season. (Catch the links to all of their design inspiration at the bottom of this post.

Natural & Neutral Fall Tablescape
Today’s post on A Pretty Fix is very photo-centric with loads of pics. I really wanted the photos to do most of the ‘talking’ today 😉
Even with these photos doing most of the ‘talking,’ I wanted to provide some additional tips and tricks for creating a simple fall tablescape, like this one, with maximum impact.
Here Are My 3 Easy Steps for Tabletop Decorating:
Step 1. Visual Demarcation
Start by dividing your table visually into 3 parts.
Did you know that the ‘Rule of 3’ is a basic design principle? It goes something like this: arranging things in odd numbers is more appealing than grouping accessories in even numbers. That’s because it is unexpected, visually interesting, and more memorable. While the ‘Rule of 3’ is only a guide, it is helpful when planning your tablescape.
Step 2. Decor Types
Using the ‘Rule of 3,’ choose a minimum of 3 types of decor pieces. In this tablescape, these would be the pumpkins, the pinecones, and the shed antlers.
Now, begin placing your decor pieces into each of the 3 parts of your tablescape.
Start with one type of decor, such as the shed antlers, placing one at each end and one in the middle of the vignette you are creating. These will anchor the tablescape by providing visual balance.
Taking the second type of decor, place it next or near the anchor pieces (i.e., shed antlers). In this case, I placed each of the three largest pumpkins next to the shed antlers.
Finally, add the third type of decor (pinecones) to the vignette. For added flourish, scatter a few other elements, if you wish. In this case, I filled some nooks and crannies with a few small pumpkins and gourds.
And that’s how easy it is to recreate this natural and neutral fall pumpkin tablescape.

This was a surprisingly quick and easy tablescape to put together. While humble and somewhat non-traditional, its natural and neutral elements are what make the greatest impact.
