I’m thrilled to show you how I’m decorating my outdoor spaces for fall as we delve into creating a beautiful and easy fall tablescape. Additionally, we’ll stroll through the garden, which still boasts vibrant blooms despite the autumn season.

Before we jump into the details of our DIY Fall Tablescape with Live Plants, let me share the inspiration behind this year’s design.

I’m drawn to the soft greens and lavenders found in Fall kale and purple cone flowers. These blooms are still thriving in our garden, and I can’t wait to incorporate them into this season’s tablescape.

To recreate this unique table setting, here’s what you’ll need:

  1. Various kale from the local greenhouse, choosing different textures and sizes.
  2. Flats of Dusty Miller to add a soft green color to the arrangement.
  3. Landscape fabric to keep the dirt inside the trays and allow for drainage.
  4. Sheet Moss for a decorative touch.
  5. Floral pens to secure the Moss.
  6. Water vials for extending the life of fresh floral stems.

Let’s dive into the process of creating this stunning centerpiece:

  1. Start by placing landscape fabric in trays and adding potting soil for a solid base.
  2. Loosen the roots of kale plants and position them in the tray.
  3. Add Dusty Miller around the edges, allowing it to hang over for a fuller look.
  4. Fill in any gaps with additional potting soil.
  5. Secure sheet Moss around the perimeter using floral pens.
  6. Complete the centerpiece by adding purple cone flowers to water-filled vials.

The finished centerpiece is a delightful combination of kale, Dusty Miller, and vibrant cone flowers, creating a whimsical and festive fall ambiance.

Moving on to setting the table, I’ve chosen linens and tableware in mossy green and lavender tones to complement the centerpiece. Vintage bronze flatware and etched antique glasses add an elegant touch.
