After the gorgeous bright colours of the summer, we are now turning our attention to the warm, earthy hues we associate with the autumn season. It’s that time of year when we start to look forward to pulling on those warm jumpers and heading off for walks in the woods with the rustle of crisp leaves underfoot.

When choosing your tablecloth for this autumn, why not consider the more neutral colours which provide an unobtrusive background, allowing your white or cream crockery to take centre stage? Team it up with silver or gold coloured cutlery along with neutral linen napkins and you have a stylish tablescape that sits happily in both contemporary and traditional design schemes.

To add that finishing touch, a few dried seed heads or grasses arranged in a vase create an on-trend contemporary table decoration which will continue to look great for the next few months.
