Modern Fall Tablescape Ideas Using Geometrics and Copper
1 – Copper elements amidst a pristine white tablescape creates a strikingly magical effect, as in this example captured by Singler Photography and featured on Ruffled blog.
Tips to take away: Metallic bands formed into hexagons atop each place setting, copper-tinted glassware and leaf place cards with copper calligraphy.
2 – Geometric-patterned linens can set the trendy look of the entire tablescape, as we found in this styled shoot from Zimmerman Events.
Tips to take away: The use of metallic tape to create angular patterns on a plain white tablecloth, layered triangular-on-square plates, and the menu card’s geometric design echoed in the blue table napkins and blue votive holders.
3 – A softer approach to a geometric centerpiece grouping can bring your tables to life, using plant-filled terrariums—so prettily presented on House Beautiful.
Tips to take away: The charm of varied textures and colors of simple garden plants, copper buillon wire wound around linen napkins, agate place card holders, and an edging of tiny colored beads on the linen table runner.
4 – Metallic chargers in copper instantly bring in a mod factor to a classic fall table setting like this one from Twelve30 Creative.
Tips to take away: The interesting contrasts among the French-print table runner, the graceful dinnerware against the hammered copper charger, the rustic-handled flatware and the geometric cutout menu card.
5 – A fall table can take on a minimalist, industrial-chic flair, as shown in this modern bridal shower from Danks and Honey.
Tips to take away: The centerpiece grouping of Himmeli-inspired geometric pieces crafted from (believe it or not!) coffee stirrers and wire, the menu cards with pink hexagon designs, matched by handmade mimosa soap bars as favors.
