When creating a tablescape for an autumnal lunch, let the colors of falling leaves be inspiration. A mixed leaf wreath hanging on the front door immediately sets a festive tone. If hosting the event outside in an area where the weather is chilly, have a fire pit or heater. Pumpkins are an affordable and appropriate decoration when stacked near the dining table. Light cream pillar candles and place on the table or around the lunch location.
Cover the table with an orange cloth, brown placemats, and cream plates. Roll napkins, slide into leaf napkin rings, and place one on each plate. Serve the lasagna in a sage green baking dish. Selecting one versatile wine glass that can be used for the mimosa, wine, or water will save you time after the party. Instead of washing three glasses per guest, you'll only have to wash one!
