Personalize your pumpkin decor with stick-on embellishments. For the dinner table, I would take this same idea and apply initials to small gourds for seating assignments (and easy party favors – who doesn't like a cute takeaway?). The striped tablecloth and splash of green enliven the look.
Try an alternative to natural pumpkin colors: Spray-paint pumpkins and gourds to your heart's content! Bring these elements to the dinner table with simple white plates, wine glasses and a few candles.
You can't go wrong with greenery. Plants of any kind, whether it's a bouquet or potted, will enliven any tablescape.
... or scatter a few small bursts of succulents along the table. Another nice feature of these durable plants is that you'll have them long after the party's over!
A sculptural element is not only eye candy, but also a conversation-starter. Real or faux, branches (or branch-like accessories) give a table depth and excitement. While it makes a statement all it's own, it also plays well with others; combine it with a pared down look (white table cloth, tea lights, simple napkins) or dress it up with patterns and colors.
