Farmers Market Inspired Tablescape

Farmers Market Inspired Tablescape

A few weeks back, I popped up to Nashville for a quick trip with Yankee Candle to preview their new Farmers Market Collection. Total pinch me moment – I mean, Yankee Candle! From start to finish the trip was a joy to be part of. Visiting Green Door Gourmet, listening to @jodi_villani Yankee Candle’s product stylist and her tips creating the perfect camera ready vignette, a market inspired cooking demo + everything in between! I loved being able to not only smell, but truly experience the notes found in each candle.

From there, I was tasked with creating my own Farmers Market inspired moment. Naturally, I thought what better way to share this wonderful new collection with y’all then a Farmers Market inspired tablescape! I pulled together a collection of some current favorite tabletop pieces, anchored by Dried Lavender & Oak.


  1. VISIT A LOCAL FARM OR MARKET | Might seem a little obvious, but I’m still shocked by how many people don’t utilize their local farmer’s market. Charleston has several great ones around the area on various days of the week. Most city website will list your counties’ locations + times from season to season. I can’t stress this enough, but TAKE. ADVANTAGE. Buying local not only helps support your communities’ economy, but it’s also healthier for you. For example: local honey helps with seasonal allergies!
  2. FOCUS ON A SIGNATURE SCENT | You don’t want to crowd your table with too much. Pair your fresh food finds with one to two signature scents on the table. Nothing that will compete with your meal, but rather enhance the guest experience. Yankee Candle’s new Farmers Market Collection for fall has a beautiful selection of scents {cough cough Dried Lavender & Oak} that will pair perfectly with your market finds.
  3. MAKE IT COLORFUL | Never have I ever witnessed a Farmers Market inspired tablescape that was black + white. Have you?? Embrace the color! Regardless of the season you’re entertaining for, take ques from those seasonal items you’ll be using in dishes throughout the meal itself, and use them as decor for the table. It’s a great way to add a seasonal pop of color here + there, as well as bring your dinner/lunch party theme full circle.
