As autumn approaches, it's the perfect time to decorate our homes and create beautiful table settings to match the season.

So, we're here to help satisfy your wonder about non-fashion-related fall trends. Read on and fall in love with these top five fall decorating trends for your autumn gatherings!

1. Gingham and Plaid

Plaid is historically a fall motif. Traditionally worn on skirts or blazers, this pattern is an autumn classic, even on tableware. With Harvest Gingham Pumpkin Plates and NapkinsFall Plaid Dessert Napkins, and Brown Plaid Plates, this elegant pattern will surely satisfy the Ivy League in you! We're seeing chocolate brown plaid as a popular pick this season, but we're also bringing in fresh plaids, like teals, and a pop of rust.
