Pure Decadence

Let’s start by highlighting the ultimate in decadent table design, shall we?! We couldn’t be more excited about Athena Calderone’s new cookbook, Cook BeautifulLuckily her blog Eyeswoon is filled with fabulous launch dinner images that celebrate the book’s publication. How gorgeous are these centerpieces featuring tableware from Georg Jensen?!

Another eye-catching Eyeswoon table pairs the relaxed vibe of outdoor dining with an abundant look, thanks to a plethora of food and flowers, as well as an enticing combination of warm and cool tones:

Don’t underestimate the power of a warm glow! String lights from Terrain add sparkle and shine on this table boasting shades of blue, eggplant and gold:

Gilded napkins add a decadent vibe

In another table display from Terrain, string lights add a welcoming element to an arrangement of fall decor. Incorporating glass pieces into the mix will help reflect the light.

Textiles with gold trim bring decadence home, and they work well with both warm and cool hues. Berry tones meet metallic touches in the image below, also from Terrain.

Did someone say “gilded trim”? These Precious Agate Cheese Boards from Anthropologie are modern yet ornate, thanks to their combination of natural gemstone and a metallic border. You don’t need much on your fall table when these beauties take center stage:

Gold flatware, dinnerware with gold-toned accents and a centerpiece that shines in the candlelight add an opulent touch to this fall table from Crate & Barrel. Note how votive candleholders help achieve variation in height.

Creating your own bountiful centerpiece doesn’t have to be an ornate undertaking. Fresh produce goes a long way in getting the job done, especially when golden pears are involved. Mixing deep grey with the warmth of wood creates rich contrast, while affordable greenery can make a big impact. Learn more right here at Decoist!

To create a decadent look, you can pile on the produce or let a few striking serving pieces speak for themselves, such as these marble servers from CB2. When topped with fall desserts, they become centerpieces in their own right:

Last but not least, we close this section of the post with two decadent tables that showcase a bright palette rather than a dark one. A marble table is the perfect canvas for fall produce (some painted) and unexpected details such as cactus leaves! Learn more at Sugar & Cloth:

Speaking of modern style, one increasingly popular fall table trend in the design blogging community involves radiant color. Gone are the traditional vignettes. In their place: clean-lined style and vibrant hues. And of course, a sense of playfulness! This colorful Friendsgiving even includes the tagline “Let’s crock n roll!” Learn more at Aww Sam.

A Touch of Earthy Style

We end today’s post by featuring a trio of fall tables that create a sense of earthy style. In fact, this farmer’s market-inspired Thanksgiving from Camille Styles piles on the delicious produce against the backdrop of a wooden table. Details such as cutting boards that double as chargers make a big impact.
