Modern Fall Decor: Elegant Blue & White On Your Fall Table

Saffron Marigold - Updated: August 14, 2020

Why not put a fresh twist on tradition and dip into a classic white and blue palette for a touch of modern fall decor this year?  After all, the autumn season serves up lush natural beauty that stretches beyond the changing of the leaves. Just take a quick look around a pumpkin patch, a vineyard, or the night sky, and you’ll see what we mean.

Inspiration: Pumpkin Vines & Harvest Moons

Extraordinary moonlight twinkles brightly on clear autumn nights, with white and silver illumination casting a glow that makes even ordinary objects look special; the curls and twists of a forest green pumpkin vine appear equally magical.

Moonlit Taj takes these beautiful gifts of nature and incorporates them into a print you’ll love using for a fresh take on fall decor.

If you’re looking for new fall dining table decor ideas, consider refreshing your palette. This print can truly work on any fall dining table whether your pumpkins are orange or white, painted or carved!

Traditional blue and white feels modern in fall decor

You don’t need feel bound to decorating with traditional fall colors. Blue and white, a perennial favorite, can be used year-round. Here, a green, blue, and white tablecloth anchor the tablescape. We envision chocolate browns, burnt oranges, crimson reds, and deep shades of eggplant as accent marks on this fall table. For metallics, simply look to the harvest moon for shimmering inspiration.

Create a stellar fall centerpiece

White pumpkins are a chic choice to use anywhere in modern fall decor–and decorating for fall doesn’t get easier than a new tablecloth and a few pumpkins! Nod to the harvest moon by bringing out your best silver and china (even if you’re not entertaining–you can still enjoy a lovely table!). Be sure to add lots of candles for a seasonal glow.
