There is something about creating a pretty Autumn Tablescape in the Kitchen that just seems to make the home feel more warm and cozy.
Our Autumn Tablescape is in the breakfast nook which is where we tend to enjoy most of our meals. It is adjacent to the kitchen and tends to be the gathering place when family and friends are in the house.
With an open floor plan, there is also a good view of the TV from the breakfast nook which everyone loves.
We have teamed up with a group of fabulously talented homemaking bloggers to share Tablescape Ideas you can use for every season. September means it is time for Fall decor! Thanks to Chloe of Celebrate & Decorate for organizing this event each month.

The centerpiece for an everyday table needs to be attractive but simple, not fancy. My guys tried to get me to just place a stack of napkins into the dough bowl. They are so funny! They will be experiencing some Fall Feels when I light the candle for our spaghetti dinner this week!
My little wooden dough bowl came from a Christmas arts and crafts sale last year and it is the perfect size for this round table. I simply added a candle, along with a collection of clean pine cones from my craft supply and a couple of faux fruit pieces. It brings a little touch of outdoors inside.
My Autumn print tea glasses came from the grocery store a few years ago. I admired them but didn’t buy them when I first saw them. I kept my eye on these glasses and would stop and hold it and think about and put it back all throughout the season. But when Fall became the holiday season and they went on clearance for .50¢ each, I swooped up 12 of them for Thanksgiving that year!
Usually when summer fades into fall, I pull these out of storage and run them through the dishwasher then add them to the glass cabinet for everyday use.
A simple plate stack we can enjoy in Autumn colors brings those Fall feels to the dinner table. I began with a solid green round place mat to anchor the setting. Gold chargers are perfect for Fall and those are topped with Melamine pumpkin dinner plates. Then finally an orange pumpkin soup bowl and we are ready for dinner.
The trick to acquiring seasonal table decor supplies is to shop the clearance sales. It isn’t a trick as much as a necessity if you plan to keep changing your decor.
I first used those adorable Pumpkin soup bowls in this Farmhouse Fall Tablescape a few years ago. It was time to bring them back out. I am looking forward to filling those bowls with some Crockpot Taco Soup very soon! Those are a Hobby Lobby find.
Yes these beautiful Pumpkin pattern dishes are Melamine and they are dishwasher safe. There were a TJMaxx find so you know they were very affordable. Don’t you love that store! I feel in love with these from the moment we first met. It was happenstance that the tablecloth and the dishes have such similar patterns. It looks like they were made using the same pattern.
The Pumpkin print tablecloth was on clearance at Walmart for $2! It was a steal I had to have. The rust color napkins actually match another round fall tablecloth I have had for years, also a clearance purchase. I wonder which season I do the most clearance shopping in. Have you ever noticed that about yourself?
