How to Style a Fall Entryway Table

by Charity

You know I am all about creating cozy, seasonal spaces in my home. And fall is my second favorite season to decorate for. Besides Christmas of course! I like to do easy, simple upgrades to pieces I already have. So I thought I would share with y’all today how to style a fall entryway table. This is the first piece you see when you walk into our home, so I want it to make a great statement without it being too overwhelming.

I’m loving how it turned out this season!

Start With a Centerpiece

It can be a little overwhelming to style a table this large. That’s why I recommend starting in the center and working your way out. I wanted a beautiful fall centerpiece to use here and I decided that my dough bowl would be just perfect. If you remember, I used to have this dough bowl on one of my previous fall tablescapes. But I have yet again changed up my fall dining tablescape this year (more to come on that later). So I have moved the dough bowl to another home!

Here is my blank entryway table with the dough bowl ready to be styled!

I love dough bowls to use as centerpieces because they are so easy to change out from season to season. Use some pumpkins for fall and then some ornaments for Christmas! All without having to change the entire set up of your entryway table. For my fall entryway table this year, I filled my dough bowl up with lightly colored peach, sage, and white pumpkins. I also painted some pumpkins a few years ago to continue on with this color scheme so I have been re-using them ever since. It was a super easy and cost effective project to do since I can easily use them year after year!

Look at all those pretty pumpkins!
Place in Some Pillows and Throws

I always have baskets, crocks, crates, etc. on my entryway table. And I usually fill them with some decorative pillows and throws. Not only is it pretty, but it is also functional as well. That way you have a stylish place to store all those pillows and throws instead of having them strewn all over the living room. It also makes it super cozy by adding in all the textures and colors from the fabric as well.

I also love how large of a space the crates and baskets take up on the entryway table. I found that cute fall crate from TJ Maxx a few years ago and I normally use it on my porch. But this year I thought I would change it up and use it on my fall entryway table instead. It’s the perfect size to place a pillow in!

Add in Some Decorative Elements

The next step on my fall entryway table is using my farmhouse style riser. I usually keep this on my entryway table. I also normally keep a cloche on that riser and I changed it up by putting some other pumpkins I painted inside of it as well. For everyday decor, I normally just place some vintage books and greenery inside of it. Then, I had to add in one of my favorite candles from Antique Candle Co! Not only do they smell so good, but they are very decorative as well!

Here you can see the pumpkins in the cloche and my favorite candle on the riser!

The next thing I did to style my fall entryway table was to add in some decorative elements on each side of the dough bowl. I have a cute wooden lantern that is again easy to change up from season to season. I placed it the left side of the dough bowl and just stuck a decorate pumpkin with greenery inside. Easy peesy!

Finishing Touches

I thought I needed something else on the bottom to balance everything out. I found a cute, handmade pumpkin from old burlap bags at a local antique store last year. And I decided it was the perfect finishing touch. It goes well with all the other cozy textures from the pillows and the blanket.

Ta-Da! Here is the finished product!
