Try something new this Fall with a causal Japanese-inspired Asian table setting and a beautiful floral centerpiece.
Hi there! Welcome to the Autumn Tablescape and Blog Hop hosted by Chloe from Celebrate and Decorate! If you are coming from Starfish Cottage, I’m so happy to have you. We are in a Japanese rental in Okinawa (at least for two more weeks) so I decided to set an Eclectic Japanese table for Autumn. When in Rome, right?
Asian Tablescape with Japanese Table Setting Ideas
Our rental kitchen is very small and we’ve enjoyed all our meals around a little four-seater table that we snagged for free on Bookoo. I used my Fall “Faux Real” centerpiece as a starting point and added in Okinawan tableware my husband and I collected the past 18 months we’ve been here. Here’s our Autumn table with an eclectic mix and Asian flare.
Each table setting includes a DIY painted charger, IKEA plate, metallic cloth napkin, bamboo plate, chopstick set, and famous Okinawan Ryukyu blown glass.
We have blown glasses in many colors. I’m in love with the purple ones and they compliment the flowers.
A Japanese table wouldn’t be complete without a sake set! (Although I’ll pass. ;)) I included a few metallic pumpkins I found at our USMC Officer Wives gift shop.
Have you heard of Goya, the bitter melon? It’s said to give longevity to the Okinawans and the reason why they are some of the longest living people in the world. Well, there’s a special dish here called champuru that is a stir fry of vegetables including goya. It’s pretty good (although the goya itself is an acquired taste!) but I found a tasty alternative with fruit champuru. The fruit and fruit products out here are amazing! I mixed it with nuts for our Fall table.
A pretty Fall colored table runner completes the table! Make sure to check out 50 + Fall seasonal and holiday decorating ideas, DIYs, and free printables for the season.
