Happy fall, friends! I hope that you are all enjoying the cooler temps and the seasonal changes in your neck of the woods, I know I am. As we transition from Halloween to Thanksgiving I genuinely get inspired to start preparing my home for entertaining my friends and family for Thanksgiving dinner, how about you? The first decor change that comes to mind is creating a fun tablescape for my family and soon to be dinner guests. I love putting together statements pieces!! Today I will be showcasing how to create a beautiful fall pocket napkin for your tablescape. If you are entertaining guests and would like to use this idea in your home then lets jump right on in!

1. Select Dinner Napkin of Choice
The dinner napkin I decided to use were these cream cotton napkins by Threshold from Target. I purchased these a few years ago, and they continue to be an excellent staple for entertaining my family. So, word to the wise, keep neutral napkins in your decor inventory as they are so simple to use during any occasion.
2. Jute Twine To Add Character
I love keeping jute twine on hand. It works perfectly for embellishing items in my home decor, holiday wrapping and in this case pocket napkins too!! You can find these in bulk at Amazon for a great price. Again, another great item to keep in your home decorating tool kit.
3. Faux Eucalyptus Stems
Here is another great staple to keep in your home for seasonal decorating. I love intertwining Eucalyptus as filler in my centerpieces I create through my house. I use them in my centerpieces, garlands, and vase filler too. In this project, I will be using it as a decorative piece on my dinner napkin.
4. Faux Pumpkin Picks
This season, Michaels Arts and Crafts had an AMAZING selection of fall picks! Anything with a neutral pumpkin on it rocked my world. For this project, I only used the pumpkin and the green and white berries. If neutral tones are not your jam, then feel free to add traditional colors of the season. Michaels is currently out of stock of this one. However, Amazon had some great alternatives too. Click here to see them.
6. Gather Supplies
After I sourced all of my supplies, I trimmed off the items I wanted to use on each pocket napkin. Organizing my supplies made my assembly process much easier and fun too! Now, that you have your supplies ready below, you will find my step by step guide on creating the pocket napkin.
