Can you believe that we’re welcoming fall this weekend? As sorry as I am to say goodbye to summer, I am looking forward all of the sights, scents, and flavors that fall will bring. Today I am so excited to join in on the Welcome Fall Tablescape Blog Hop, hosted by the lovely and talented Chloe, from Celebrate and Decorate. This week-long blog hop is the perfect place to visit if you’re looking for some autumn inspiration for your home. I hope you enjoy my nature-inspired autumn table. Then head on over to the links at the end of this post to see all the different looks created for fall tables!
Setting the Table
You don’t need to spend a lot of money to create a festive fall tablescape. My inspiration came from nature. I began with a cluster of beautiful hydrangeas I had picked from a friend’s yard and had begun drying to use for fall decorating. I love the soft, muted colors and texture of these flowers. They are my absolute favorite! Then I took a trip to a local farm where I picked up a few pumpkins and gourds.
To set this fall table, I began with a lace leaf runner that I had received as a gift several years ago. I added the faded, delicate hydrangeas to one of my mom’s pitchers. Then I set out the pumpkins and gourds. A couple of candles from Dollar Tree and a few pieces from a fall potpourri completed the centerpiece.
For the place settings for this fall tablescape, I created layers beginning with jute round place mats. These place mats add a natural texture to the table. Layered on top are silver chargers from Dollar Tree. I added a cranberry colored napkin for a pop of color before layering the china. This china belonged to my grandmother. I love having little reminders of my grandparents and my mother sprinkled throughout my home. The white background and beautiful silver maple leaves are elegant, timeless, and perfect for fall.
The Dining Room
I really haven’t done too much fall decorating yet. What I have done, I have kept very simple. What you can’t see in these pictures is that I painted my living room last weekend and will finish putting it back together this weekend. Once that is complete, I will also be giving the dining room a fresh coat of paint and will be adding some updates to this space. For now, on the side table I created a small vignette in front of my DIY Farmhouse Shutter Wall Art.
This table is where I usually set out and serve dessert when we have company. Perhaps I should bake a batch of perfect pumpkin bars with cream cheese frosting this weekend? They are a favorite of friends and family!
How are you planning to welcome fall into your home? I would love to hear your thoughts.
