At the harvest table ...

Our small olive crop this year may not have been our best, but it's still a reason to celebrate the yield with friends. It will soon be time to gather around our harvest table at our annual autumn soiree, and I've found some great inspiration for fall table settings.

Wine, cheese, olives, tasty tapenades and warm, freshly baked breads - perfect starters for a harvest dinner. Notice the woven table runner? I love the texture.

Love the chairs, rustic wood table and simple settings in this image via House and Home.

I like to take my cue from Mother Nature and keep the tabletop simple. I'm dying to try my hand at incorporating moss into centerpiece elements. The little birds are a nice touch too.

The abundance of flowers and gourds makes this centerpiece a memorable arrangement, but it certainly needs a bigger tabletop than mine. The mini corn cob placed on each plate is a sweet reminder of the harvest.

I'm going to figure out the construction of the pears and wheat centerpiece! Simple, yet elegant.

The golden tribute to the season is lovely. Lemons, mums, oranges and golden tomatoes contrast beautifully with the all white dinnerware.

As long as the table setting is warm and welcoming, it's a success in my book.
