How to Create an Autumn Tablescape with Garland and Wreaths

~This post is sponsored by our friends at Tree Classics, but my opinions are 100% my own~

Autumn is the season that tugs at my heartstrings, and brings joy to my soul. It’s a season that I long for all year long, anticipating the crisp Fall weather, with the first whispers putting me in the mood for caramel apples, apple cider, cozy throws, and evenings by the fire.

Autumn doesn’t last long enough for me, seeming to go by so fast. I just begin to enjoy my Fall decor when it’s time to put it away and start trimming for Christmas. That sentiment is magnified even more so in blogland.

This year I’ve decided to decorate in ways that make the transition through the holidays easier, giving me the opportunity to enjoy the decor a little bit longer.

When Tree Classics challenged me to create an Autumn tablescape using their Christmas garland and wreaths, I was intrigued, and to be honest, I wasn’t sure I could pull it off, but I love the end result!

Today I’m teaming up with Tree Classics and three other talented bloggers for A Toast to Autumn,  showing you how I created an Autumn tablescape with Christmas garland and wreaths.

This is a way to decorate your dining table for Fall and when Thanksgiving is over, it will easily shift into Christmas!

When the wreath and garland arrived from Tree Classics, they were ready to display right out of the box.

All they needed were a little zhushing…..you know……..fluffing!

I took a few minutes to fluff the wreath and garland to give them a full and lush look. It’s so easy to do, taking a row at a time, working from the outside in, taking each tip and bending them out and up. When finished stand back and take a look, adjusting any areas that need attention.

I chose the Countryside Christmas wreath and garland because it already had some beautiful Autumn elements with pinecones and acorns.

To begin, I placed the garland down the center of the dining table, fluffing the tips, and opening up the realistic branches.

On the end of the garland are two wire hooks, making it very easy to create a circle on each end of the garland.

In the center I placed an antique plateau mirror that belonged to my mother.

It makes the perfect piece to elevate a center display.

I added miniature white pumpkins, velvet acorns, and sprigs of lavender to the garland for a bit more Autumn flavor.

With the addition of glass hurricanes filled with green apples, fresh Fall flowers in an ironstone tureen, votive candles and velvet pumpkins, our Autumn tablescape is done!

Are you wondering how I used the wreath?

I placed it on top of an old garden urn, added sprigs of lavender and a few mini white pumpkins, and nested a giant velvet pumpkin inside!

The wreath comes pre-lit with pretty white lights for a dose of evening romance.

After Thanksgiving, this tablescape will easily transition to Christmas by simply removing the pieces of Autumn decor, and adding Christmas ornaments or festive ribbons. Easy peasy!

  1. Beautiful table and great idea to use the garland down the center of the table. I’m smitten with the urn with the velvet pumpkin sitting on greens. I will do something similar. Happy Fall!

  2. ~Cindy~
    First giggle giggle , I was surprised to see your cute pup sitting in the chair at the head of the table of course !!!
    I love your arrangements, the urn arrangement so pretty !!!
    October warms my heart with so many memories of my loved ones birthdays that would have been this month.
    Hope all is well with you ! hugs

  3. Love your green glasses! I have some just like them. Some were my mom’s and some were a dear friends. Wish I knew where they purchsed them originally. Love your blog…

    • Thank you, Dinah! The green glasses belonged to my sweet mother in law! She used to always serve iced tea in them. I smile every time I see them.

  4. How beautiful, Cindy! I love how you wound the ends of the garland into circles! Brilliant! Your added touches are perfect too. Now I will go see if I can purchase either of these:)

  5. I agree with you Cindy. I’ve tried to follow mother nature’s lead in decorating for the seasons and holidays. Mother Nature doesn’t chop off one season and begin another. Only a retail biz does that! And I don’t want a retail biz holiday even tho I buy retail decorations whether factory made or handmade. I like to slowly transition in and out of seasons and seasonal holidays. I worked retail biz for 20+ yrs and I never got use to the way holiday decor was here one day and completely gone the next as if it never existed. Because of working retail, I came to realize I let retail biz dictate how I decorated for holidays and season at home. Chopping one off to begin another. It was jarring to my soul! After this realization, I changed. I looked to mother natures for guidance, not a retail biz timetable!!!

  6. This is the most beautiful and creative holiday table ever! I love your idea of using more transitional items that will carry you from autumn to Christmas without having to completely change everything. Brilliant! x o

  7. Happy Fall Cindy! Your table is lovely and I especially like the wreath in the urn. Who would have thought to do that? Enjoy fall while it lasts. We’re off to the mountains today to view the colors. Snow above 9000 feet. Yikes! Not ready for winter yet. Hugs, Pat

  8. Very pretty! I love the green glasses. I also love that your sweet pup has taken the place of honor at the table. So cute!

  9. As usual Cindy you are chalk full of beautiful ideas! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us, …..you inspire me each and every time I read your blog.
