{fall table setting + DIY succulent pumpkin}

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.

Setting my last summer table for the year.  Bittersweet!  You know by now that I LOVE a pretty table.  It’s inviting.  Sets the tone.  You know what I mean?  Changing around the table setting to fit the mood + season has become my jam.  Still trying to come up with a name to make it a series.  Anyone have any cute + clever ideas?  Something with a good ring to it.  Maybe I can do a monthly table series?

In case you’re new or missed it, here are some of the other table settings I’ve shared on the blog…..

This time around I wanted to showcase summertime.

Mezger Zinnia’s are a showstopper!  My table wouldn’t have been complete without a big vase full of these seasonal beauties.

After admiring all the beautiful + extremely expensive decorative wooden beads all over Instagram, I finally found some for my home.  Found this Wood Bead Garland while strolling (you’ll never believe it) goo ol’ Target.  One of the best $12 purchases I’ve made in a long time.  You’d be surprised at how versatile they really are.  These beads have been moved all over the house and I love them.

And added touch….rosemary wrapped in twice around cheapy little white candles.  Didn’t they turn out cute?
