Spending cozy evenings, hosting dinner parties and family gatherings with good food and great conversations is why fall is one of my favorite seasons of the year.  When I'm hosting a gathering I like to plan out the design details ahead of the event.  Color scheme, place settings, are centerpiece ideas are all carefully considered before our guests arrive.

I like using simple elements to create a stylish design statement at the table and instantly fell in love with this tablescape when I came across it on Pinterest.

I love the juxtaposition of the simple and sophisticated elements on the table. 


The deep rich colors, mixed metallic finishes and rustic elements create a natural sophistication that's perfect for an evening with family and friends.

Great lighting is key in any space. When we're hosting dinner parties, I like to add candles to the mix to cast a warm glow at the table. I love how this setting incorporates both candles and string lights, hung above the table, creating perfect mood lighting for guests.

What are your favorite elements of this table setting?  

I find that breaking down an interior you are inspired by, element by element, makes tackling the design of your own space much easier.  

The great thing about this tablescape is that it's a look you can completely pull off at home. I put together this "GET THE LOOK" post to help you recreate this rustic chic look on your own. 

If you plan to entertain guests this season, below are all the items you'll need to recreate this setting for your next soiree.
