Fall has arrived and that means plenty of opportunities to celebrate this gorgeous season. The design experts at City Line Florist are ready with tips to help you create tablescapes perfect for autumn that you and your guests will enjoy all season.
Contrast formal dinnerware with a rustic centerpiece to create a peaceful balance at your table. Gorgeous white china, classic flatware and thin stemware pair beautifully with bright pumpkins, acorns and pine cones in natural colors.
Use winding tree branches, curly willow or hypericum berries instead of a table runner down the center of your table. Add a few metallic accents like shiny silver stemware or candlesticks for balance.
Instead of a formal dinner, serve food from a buffet table. Add fall leaves, bark-lined cake stands and scattered fall flowers for a natural fall look. Read More about Decorate Your Table For The Season »
As you begin to decorate for fall this season, let the floral artisans at City Line Florist help you bring out your sense of style and creativity with these artful tips to show off the essence of autumn:
Use natural fall textures like branches, pinecones, and acorns to evoke the fresh ambiance of a walk through a fall woods.
Make fall colors pop against a monochromatic foundation. Use a creamy off-white table cloth for your formal dining table to make the brilliant, rich hues in your floral autumn centerpiece shine.
Dress up steps, staircases, mantles and shelves with mini pumpkins or apples carved into candle votives.

As fall approaches, we can finally inject a little drama into our decor. One of the best ways to do that is to turn to the jewel-tone palette, a seasonal favorite. We here at City Line Florist love the dimension, depth and mystery of gemstone colors, whether it's ruby red, crimson, violet, blue or emerald green. Luckily, a whole range of flowers is available in these hues, which will not only enliven your space but give it a sense of gravitas, too. If you aren't ready to invest in full-on fabric and linen decor in these colors, flowers can be a great way to get the same effect without breaking the bank.

There's so much joy in working with Thanksgiving flowers because we know they'll be gracing homes filled with family and friends. They help create a festive spirit and to reflect the season's abundance we're all so thankful for. There's no arrangement better able to do that than the centerpiece, which poses like a cornucopia (and sometimes is a cornucopia) in the heart of the dining table.
