Table Linens: Select tablecloths or table runners and napkins in earthy tones, like deep reds, oranges, and browns, to complement the season. You can also opt for rich, textured linens for a touch of elegance.
Seasonal Place Cards: Add a personal touch by creating custom place cards for your guests. Incorporate natural elements like twigs and pinecones to give them a rustic, autumnal feel.
