7. Lean into seasonal produce

Who said flowers are the only thing you can decorate with? We love bringing fresh produce to our tablescapes, especially using seasonal items like squash and whole stemmed carrots (leave on the tops, they make a fun green addition!)

While you're setting your table into the most festive of fall get-ups, may as well get some fall festivities on the calendar.
