9 Fall Tablecloths For an Elegant Seasonal Table Setting

Saffron Marigold - Updated: September 30, 2023

Fall tablecloths and table runners in rich, cozy colors are just what your table needs if you want to create a setting of cozy and relaxed elegance. With that, your fall tablecloth doesn’t have to be printed with pumpkins, leaves, or other fall themes. Instead, choose fall tablecloths or table runners in colors that work well for the season and that feature versatile patterns you can use well past fall.

Inspiration: Monochromatic Beauty

While the fall brings with it a motley of colors and sensory delights, it also offers stunning moments filled with layers of a single color. Simple baskets filled with nothing but red apples celebrate the color of the season while inspiring elegant still lifes at the same time.

With that, we enjoy the idea of setting a fall table that puts a particular fall color in the spotlight. Choose your favorite fall color as the highlight and theme of your fall tablescapes. Golden yellows, cranberry reds, warm pumpkin, even cozy charcoal grey–all of these would be beautiful on a fall table.

Elegant fall tablecloths and table runners

Our collections of block printed linens are perfect for fall decorating. They’re the ultimate in elegant linens: not only are they free from the typical fall patterns you see on fall tablecloths, but they’re also unique and handmade. Each is block printed by hand at our artisans’ studio in Rajasthan, India, and no two are completely identical. Whether you want to use a fall tablecloth or table runner to anchor a centerpiece or to provide the palette for your fall tablescapes, we’ll have your table covered.

Choosing chic fall centerpieces

With our block printed fall tablecloths on the table, all you really need are a few choice fall accents to have a stunning, elegant fall table. This might mean grouping together a bundle of white pumpkins, green apples, or ruby pomegranates en masse and lighting a few candles. You might just choose one fall centerpiece to center the table and call it a day. For a cozy fall table setting that feels inviting but looks chic, keep the fall table decor simple.
