Hi friends. Thanks to having Monday off…this week is flying by. Bay was home sick yesterday. Luckily she’s back to her spunky self today. I cleared our calendar for the week. Skipped things I/we probably shouldn’t. Just to straight up stay at home! We never, ever do this. But, it felt necessary. You should try it…just saying.
Our house is all set for Fall. Yesterday’s morning rain storm gave me all the feels. But, then it got hot AF and I had to turn the AC on…lol.
Let’s chat about our Fall table. You know I have a thing for a set table. Well, I do!
A beautifully set table makes any meal feel like a special occasion. And yes, we 100% sit at this table and eat dinner every night. I pick up the place settings and move them to the side. Then put them back in place when we’re done. It takes maybe 2 minutes out of my day, so I don’t mind it one bit. Someday, when I grow up (lol) I dream of having a big long formal dining table. It will be set year round. With all the pretty things I can find!
This year I planned the table all around this show stopper. My succulent pumpkin. Real succulents. Spanish moss. Eucalyptus. All spread over the top of a real pumpkin. Keep scrolling and you’ll find the DIY below. I even figured out how to make a printable version, which knocked my own socks off Ha!
My everyday gold flatware. Linen napkins. Gold rimmed stemless wine glasses.
Pulled out my trusty gold-rimmed white dishes too. Bet you can’t guess where I bought them?
I scored these dishes from the Dollar Store. Last Christmas.
The Target dollar spot had rolls of boxwood garland for $3. I picked up one. Which made each wreath place setting and chair backers.
I was inspired to use mini white pumpkins and wreaths after seeing Karen of Serendipity Boutique’s table setting at her own home. Simple + clean + festive.
I picked up the gold leaf garland that is strewn down the center of the table from Serendipity Boutique too. For $12. I think it would look so pretty across a mantle.
