TGIF = Thank Goodness It’s Fall! Cute, huh? Would be better if it were Friday, just saying!
It’s no secret that I LOVE decking out my dining room table. Typically, it’s the first piece I decorate for the Holidays or seasons. Then I gradually work my way from top to bottom of the house. Not leaving anything untouched. It’s just the Holiday Whore in me!
I thought I finished the house for Fall + Halloween. Then, I accidentally hacked into my Sisters Amazon account and primed a shit ton of paper bats. NO clue where they are going to go, but I promise you – It’s gonna be bat-shit fun. Ha!
Tips for setting a fall table:
- Add Texture – My table runner + lambs ear picks gave me the texture I was looking for
- Real or Faux Pumpkins – Trader Joe’s has the best selection of fun pumpkins
- An Element of Nature – Eucalyptus is typically how I bring in the outdoors
- Candles – Check out my little diy tealight holders
It’s hard to tell, but there is a Macrame Table Runner. Then a tobacco basket. Layered with lots of seeded + silver dollar eucalyptus. Then topped with a green + white pumpkins.
The color scheme came from these plates. I went with salad plates so I could layer the dishes. Layers + textures are so important.
I tucked faux lambs ear picked into each knotted napkin. I originally thought I’d stick to eucalyptus, but I fell in love with this dollar spot lambs ear with the white balls. And I think it completed the look for the place setting.
I think layers are my love language. Charger. Dinner Plate. Salad Plate. Napkin.
These tea light holders are real mini pumpkins. I used the knife out of our pumpkin carving kit and carved out a whole in the top. And shimmied the tea light right in.
Since they are real pumpkins, they wont last long. I’d say I tossed them about 4 days later.
These pumpkin and eucalyptus were the first to arrive. Clearly the eucalyptus is dried out by now, which is exactly how I love it the very most.
Two items I pull out each time I set my table. These wine glasses and my gold flat ware. They will literally NEVER go out of style.
And I’m not afraid to use them. I feel like why have them if you don’t get to enjoy them?
I almost forgot to mention – these wine glasses hold ALMOST an entire bottle of wine. So, one glass of wine = one glass of wine, right?
Green + white will forever be one of my favorite colors to decorate with.
I just love the way it tuned out.
And I’m feeling crazy inspired to get to work on my Christmas table already! I think I’ve found a few new items I need to pick up and start my planning.
