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.

Create a natural farmhouse tablescape this fall with this pumpkin and pinecone tablescape decor.

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.

Using natural elements and a few design tricks, create a natural and neutral fall tablescape this fall. For more quick and easy decorating ideas, see aprettyfix.com.

3.  Placement

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.

Bring the outdoors in for your fall tablescape by incorporating natural elements, such as pumpkins, pinecones, and shed antlers. Farmhouse style never looked so good!

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.

    Your tablescape looks so lovely Jelica. You really do have an impeccable design style. I know you’ve mentioned the rule of thirds before in previous posts and I’ve tried applying it, but it always looks wrong somehow. I would love to be able to do something like this and have it look so gorgeous.

      Thanks so much, Michelle. I think we all feel that way and it takes a lot of practice to get a vignette to feel just right. Although this one came together rather quickly, others have taken a painfully long time to complete. I guess it’s all part of the fun (& pain!) of decorating 😉

      Thanks so much, Tanya! Although we are not hosting Canadian Thanksgiving this year, I just couldn’t pass up decorating the table this fall. And for some reason, white pumpkins were calling out to me this year 😉

      Thanks so much Sam! I had so much fun putting it together – which (surprisingly) took very little time to put together once I had all my decor pieces gathered. I just love decorating for fall. It’s definitely one of my favourite times to style the home. Easy and casual is how I like it 🙂

    Beautiful tablescape Jelica. Lot of texture even if you only used one color. It looks modern and fresh.You were able to explain to us why it works so well. Many times I’ll see something but don’t understand why it works. Thanks for that. Going to check out the other ladies too.

      I appreciate hearing that, Mary! And, yes, please do check out the vignettes created by the other ladies. Such pretty and interesting styling ideas that I am definitely going to try out myself. Learned a few things along the way, too. Love that!

    Jelica, you have a simple attractive style that appeals. Everything always looks so cool and serene. I’ve known about the “rule of 3,” but for me, it doesn’t often come together so well. Keep doing what you’re doing!

    So beautiful, so symetrical! All white but so interesting and so suitable for your space. I did not know anything about these rules, thank you for sharing 🙂
