Fall doesn’t officially begin until September 22nd and it’s always a bittersweet time of year for me. I adore summer and hate to see it go, but I also love autumn with her crisp evenings and brilliant colors. So I always experience a mix of emotions this time of year. This week I’m celebrating the Seasons of Home – Autumn Edition with 6 fellow bloggers. Each day you can visit a different blog for autumn inspiration (schedule is at the end of this post so you won’t miss a thing!). I’ve chosen to share a natural fall table setting this week.
Fall is one of the best times for enjoying the fruits of summer’s labor. Some of the best vegetables are being harvested, tomatoes are being canned, and lots of fruits are still in season. Plus, it’s easier to cook once the weather cools.
I thoroughly enjoyed arranging a natural fall table setting with the afternoon sun pouring through the windows. I layered landscape burlap over a matelasse coverlet that I used for the tablecloth. I like the rusticity of the soft burlap.
I kept the place settings simple so the centerpiece would be the true star of my natural fall table setting.
For the centerpiece, I placed Baby Boos and acorns on a wooden French bread board.
I love the pairing of white and neutrals in this tablescape.
The acorns came from a local forest preserve where my daughter and I go running. I picked them up last year after one of our fall runs.
I just adore Baby Boos and found these at 50 cents each from a local farmer.
Aren’t they beautiful in their simplicity?
Vintage silverware is wrapped in a linen napkin and tied up with twine and decorated with wheat.
Football Mums make their appearance on my natural Fall table setting.
I love these big fluffy flowers!
Dried grasses are tucked in an enamel white pitcher in the background to continue the natural theme in the dining space.
On the built-in hutch, I added my wooden stars and bouquets of the football mums in blue mason jars.
Is there any flower that doesn’t look good in a blue mason jar?
There were 2 bunches of these mums at the store and I scooped both of them up.
When the weather turns warmer, hubby and I enjoy dining al fresco. I like to set a colorful table for outdoor meals and decided a little spring porch dining was in order. I transformed the front porch into a romantic boho chic dining area with Moroccan-style lanterns and jewel-toned place settings. (This post contains affiliate…
Summer temps are reaching into the 90’s here in the Chicagoland area this week. When it gets hot like this I’m motivated to keep my decor light and cool. Taryn at Designing, Dining and Diapers asked me to be part of a summer mantel roundup and I decided to create a summer mantel with favorite…
This past week I’ve been up to my eyeballs in Christmas decor, with a goal of getting all the halls decked before Thanksgiving. Why so early? Because the week after Thanksgiving I’m joining a virtual holiday house walk with about 30 other bloggers. But for now, I’m turning an admiring eye toward Anita’s city house…
When you drive or walk around neighborhoods, do you find yourself drawn to one particular style of home exterior? Or maybe you’re drawn to a specific color of houses. Today I’ve got a collection of home exterior styles to share with you. I’d love to hear what style you prefer most! Photo by JB Architecture…
Do you decorate for 4th of July, beyond flying a flag on your front porch? If you love nostalgic Americana style, you likely have a home with a few patriotic home decor pieces. I’ve put together a collection of rooms in red, white, and blue that I think you’ll enjoy as our national holiday approaches….
School has begun, the days are starting to shorten, and Fall decorating is on my mind. Today I’m joining some blogging friends for the Autumn Abounds blog hop.
