Comments Off on How-To: Set the table for fall



With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it’s time to think about more than just the spread. Whether it’s your first, or fifth time hosting, creating a festive fall table can be fun and easy! With the help of our director of interior design, we’ve created a simple how-to guide for setting your fall table.



Step 1 – Embrace a fall palette

It’s not hard to fall in love with Marimekko’s charming prints for fall 2016. Marimekko offers fabrics by the metre, allowing you to create a custom a table cloth, runner or napkins proportionate to your dining table. We love the warm browns and taupes used in Green Green, pictured here.




Step 2 – Pair it down

Soften a bold printed tablecloth with simple white dinnerware. Part of EQ3 Basics, our Swell Dinner Plates feature a unique triangular shape.





Step 3 – Au naturel

Introduce natural elements and textures. Simple cotton napkins like our Acre Collection pair well with our Coast Marble Napkin Holders.





Step 4 –  Set the table

Set the table with enough flatware for each course and a separate water and wine glass. Fete, our new copper flatware set is a perfect way to dress the table for the season.





Steps 5 & 6 – Create an ambience

Create an ambience by scattering simple tealight holders. (Hint: they’re much safer than candlesticks when it comes time to pass the wine!)


Since fall flowers are often softer in colour, adding texture is key. Enhance your arrangement with leafy greens or vivid berries.


You’re all set to impress your guests!
