Setting a table setting with seeded eucalyptus, pears and roses as a table runner centrepiece is a unique and beautiful way to decorate your dining room for fall.
I’m excited to share a fall tour with you today! And…to take a break from working on my book 😉 If you’re visiting from Cherished Bliss,welcome! If you’re new to my site, you can find more about me here.
If you already know me, you’ll know that I’m a huge fan of neutrals. Last year I decorated my dining room with purples and greens and just said no to orange.
I’m carrying on that ‘no orange’ fall tradition but I’m using different natural objects to decorate this year and I’ll show you how you can recreate the same look in your home.
My most favourite thing to decorate with for fall is white pumpkins and heirloom pumpkins. They can be so difficult to find that last year I also made my own heirloom pumpkins. This year I wanted to try fall natural materials that maybe you wouldn’t think to decorate for fall with.
Also, instead of a traditional centrepiece, I wanted to make a table runner full of flowers so I used seeded eucalyptus (I’m obsessed with it this year and it’s also my favourite colour), pears and cream/pink roses.
What you’ll need:
- white linen table runner
- 4 bunches of seeded eucalyptus
- 2 dozen cream/pink roses
- 9 pears
First I started by laying a white linen table runner down the middle of the table bunched up throughout.
I used 4 small bunches of seeded eucalyptus. You might not need as much if you find bunches that are bigger.
I placed the eucalyptus bunches down with stems pointing to the centre and tucked the rose stems into the eucalyptus.
I finished it off by adding the pears throughout.
A simple sprig of eucalyptus on a linen napkin on a plate is the only thing else needed for this table setting.
I love this fun, unique take on decorating for fall.
Here are a few extra tips to keep in mind:
I moved the eucalyptus and roses the next day and made it into a floral arrangement because I wanted the flowers to last. This table runner centrepiece would look gorgeous if you left them on the table as they would dry nicely laying on the runner. I cannot be sure, though, if the eucalyptus and flowers would stain the runner if left to dry there for many days so you might want to lay something over the runner just in case to protect it such as some plastic wrap or clear plastic bags.
