Wow! I can’t believe it’s time to share the Fall ’23 tabletop trends that I’m seeing online and in stores.
The Summer season went by SO FLIPP’N FAST!
It seems to me that retailers are stocking their shelves with Fall and holiday decor MUCH SOONER than in previous years.
I mean ~ I started seeing Halloween and Fall decorations in mid-August.
And now, some stores already have those items on sale.
Geesh! That’s too fast!
But, as with every new season, I’m here to share with you what I see are the current trends and what you can expect to see on tables for the Fall ’23 season.
To be honest, there aren’t very many surprises.
Many of the trends, you’d expect.
Because Fall has a color palette that’s (pretty much) dictated by nature. And because of the upcoming holidays.
But there are always a few changes from the past year and a few surprises.
Read on to discover what I uncovered…

Fall ’23 Tableware Colors
Trending colors for Fall ’23 are within the customary Autumn colors.
There’s the reds, oranges, and yellows. But for 2023, they’re a little darker and muted. They aren’t bright and vibrant.
You’ll see burnt orange and burnt yellow, along with rust-reds.
Depending on the retailer, you’ll see either a dark olive green or a medium forest green.
Trending Dishware for Fall ’23
A pleasant surprise (for me) that’s trending in dishware this season is white heirloom pieces.
Retailers are giving a nod to the past and embracing vintage inspired white ironstone dishes. The plates and serving pieces have simple details that enable them to look beautiful on any table setting.
I especially love the style from Pottery Barn.
In addition to white heirloom dishes, most retailers have plates and bowls crafted with a reactive glaze, providing an artisanal style to them. With their earth tones and organic shapes, they’re a perfect match to the heirloom style.
Table Linens on Trend
I have to say ~ I LOVE the table linen trend I’m seeing for Fall.
It’s all about linen fabrics.
Beautifully worn linen tablecloths, table runners, and napkins, both hemmed and fringed. They have a wonderful softness about them. Not a crisp and starched look, but one of comfort and casualness.
Also trending for Fall are quilted placemats. Talk about bringing back nostalgia!
They are absolutely the perfect complement to the trending dishware.
Tablescape Decor for Fall
Wow, wow, wow! There is an abundance of Fall tablescape decorations out this season.
In fact, it definitely dominates what’s available for shoppers.
You’ll see tons of pumpkins, in a variety of styles. From velvet to fleece, to glass, and even woven ones. I think I was most surprised by the amount of black pumpkins I saw.
I guess they can cross over to Halloween decor as well.
Along the line of pumpkins, there’s lots of decor with pheasants and fall-colored leaves. And then there’s the Halloween decor. Ghosts and skeletons are very much on-trend. But not much in the way of witches, black cats, or other symbols of Halloween.
Toadstools are back on-trend again for Fall. You’ll find them in wood, glass, and mimicking the concrete look.
I have to say my favorite Fall tabletop decor trend for 2023 is the rust-colored stems. I love their muted red color and how they provide a light and airy look coming out of a vase.
I predict that comfort and ease will be the theme for the holidays. Not so much of elegance and glam.
There’s a bit of nostalgia in the newest Fall trends that have a sense of warmth and simplicity. Perfect for gathering with friends and family around the table.
