An outdoor fall table setting is the perfect time to welcome in Autumn. The temperatures begin to cool and leaves begin to turn.
My husband and I both love Autumn. During the fall months we spend even more time doing activities outside like eating outdoors. The bugs become less of a problem outside and makes the dining experience more enjoyable.
This week is my husband’s birthday. I wanted to create a lovely outdoor fall tablescape to celebrate his special day. Nothing like having a beautiful table setting and delicious food to help make someone feel special.

Autumn Floral Arrangement
You will need to cut the top of the pumpkin off. I went about 3 inches down. The inside of the pumpkin will need to be cleaned out by removing the seeds and scraping the sides to remove the string content with a spoon.
Brick Foam Block that can hold water was cut down to fit inside of the pumpkin. Using a watering can, you need to pour enough water over the Brick Foam Block until it darkens.
Next begin working in the filler into the foam. You can trim any pieces later. The filler will give you a base to work with when adding in your floral. I am using eucalyptus as my filler for this arrangement.
Cut your flowers to size and begin to work them into the pumpkin with filler. I am using sunflowers.
After working all of the sunflowers into my arrangement, I found a few twigs from the yard and placed in the center.
Just a little more greenery from the yard. I cut some branches from a blueberry bush with leaves to fill in any open spaces in the fall flower arrangement.
Adding Accessories to your table setting
Adding a plaid table scarf or throw at an angel across my table was the first step. It creates a nice base for your table setting.
At the end of the table, I placed a large basket with two large yellow mums inside it. I began to work in small pumpkins and gourds in the front of the basket and on the table.
Large pumpkins were put on the table. Four tall candle holders with candles helps to set the mood. I sprinkle six apples on the table around the candles. You can even carve the apples to use to hold tea lights too. A couple tea lights finishes this outdoor dining space.
This dining space was so easily transformed into a lovely outdoor space.
The best part of this project was when my husband came over and said it was beautiful! It is the little joys in life that we can call blessings.
