Fall entertaining! From football parties to holiday galas, it’s that time of year! What better time to update your table with more eco-friendly tablewares that are as gorgeous as they are green. Earlier this week, we covered the behind the scenes prep so today we’re taking the tabletop green. With the right pieces, you can achieve a mix and match style that will take you from summer barbecues to fall football with ease and style. Here are some of our tabletop favorites.
Nothing beats the casual elegance of linen, and with the right accessories, this is one fabric that will take you through all four seasons. The unbleached raw linen and red accents make this one perfect for fall.
Unmistakably gorgeous acacia wood will stand up to years of tabletop use.
Put these out on a cheese plate, or with breakfast jams and jellies. Either way, these olive wood spreaders are beautiful and functional. The wood for these is taken from annual trimmings or felled trees that have reached the end of their fruiting life.
Green in every sense of the word, this beautiful, hand-blown pitcher is made entirely from recycled glass. Sturdy, stunning, and perfectly proportioned to hold a whopping 92 ounces, each pitcher is unique.
Late summer and early fall are still perfect times for sangria. Pour yours into these hand-blown beauties made from recycled glass. Each holds 8 ounces, and each is unique.
We’re taking the green table idea literally! Handcrafted reclaimed mango wood with ceramic bowls are just right for dips and salsas. The classic, retro styling merges with any décor.
Heavy, yet sleek. Modern, yet rustic. Handcrafted from sustainable mango wood, these curved platters make a perfect serving piece for your fall table.
Dramatically different. Handcrafted from sustainably grown and harvested acacia, these plates showcase the wood’s natural beauty. They also make a stunning table setting.
Are you ready for fall? Now that back to school is done, there’s a little lull before the holidays start. It’s a perfect time for entertaining. It’s also a perfect time to update your table. Keeping your kitchen, food prep and tableware eco-friendly can be a challenge, especially if you like to have different looks for each season. But, with the right pieces, it’s easy to achieve a mix and match style that can go from summer barbecues to fall football parties with ease. Want a green table? We’ve gathered some of our favorite pieces for prep and service.
Keep yourself tidy with this chef’s style apron that offers generous coverage (so your clothes stay guest-ready). A linen-cotton blend ensures this apron is as green as it is gorgeous and the fabric just gets softer with each washing.
A kitchen workhorse, linen tea towels look good and serve multiple uses from drying glassware to acting as a potholder, trivet, or even an oversize napkin, or a perfect placemat. We love the fall motif and the water-based inks; the fabric will soften with washing, but these inks will not fade.
A good knife is essential to your kitchen. Keep yours safely out of the way, but attractively available in this reclaimed wood holder, filled with bamboo sticks to keep your knives securely in place.
Keep everything within easy reach of your stove with this smooth, sleek bamboo utensil holder. Coated with a light, food-safe oil, the natural, certified organic bamboo is heat and stain resistant and will look good in any kitchen.
Keeping a salt cellar near your stove or food prep area is a trick of most good cooks. It makes it easier to reach for “just a pinch” of kosher salt. This gorgeous cellar is made from teak remnants that would otherwise be discarded. Handmade and unique, no two are exactly alike.
Skip the plastics! Reach for biodegradable bamboo fiber mixing bowls instead. This set of five nesting bowls is a perfect kitchen accessory you can feel good about.
Classic designs never go out of style. Reclaimed acacia wood looks gorgeous and the food-safe lacquer will keep it that way for years. Perfect for tossing salads or serving rolls.
Carry your gear in classy style. A sturdy tray is a kitchen necessity, from carrying drinks, to corralling condiments, they serve a wide range of uses. Made entirely from bamboo, this tray’s sleek, simple style compliments any décor.
