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.
Autumn doesn’t officially begin until next week, but today I’m showing what I’ve got so far in regards to my nature inspired fall home tour. I’ll start with my cozy (i.e. small) sitting room where I swapped out one cow picture for another – and I swapped out a set of chairs, too. (This post…
Several weeks ago I contacted the owner of this week’s charming home tour. Becky blogs at This Is Happiness and she has a truly beautiful home … which she and her husband recently sold! As you tour her bright and cheery home, you’ll see why it sold. As you wander from room to room, her…
This summer I made a promise to spend less time in the house and more time outside with my garden and my family. So I haven’t done much decorating but I did make a subtle change in my sitting room to lighten it up for summer living. Today is the first Saturday of the…
What is it about vintage mirrors that cast their spell and draw you into their aged beauty? Something about their blemished, cloudy glass creates an ethereal and ageless appeal. I’ve been collecting old mirrors for a while now and recently created this little vintage mirror vignette from various flea market and junk finds. Sage flowers…
Last week a group of us bloggers hosted a Fun in the Sun linky party along with a $250 cash giveaway! Congratulations to Danette D who was the lucky winner of the giveaway! I’d also like to extend a thank you to everyone who linked up their Fun in the Sun summer projects. There was…
Bold coastal style? Normally I think of beach style as being soft and serene in hues of blue and green, but today’s home adds a fun twist. Strong colors mingle with nautical decor to create unique living spaces in a beautifully constructed home. White paint pops next to chocolate brown wallpaper and a brightly striped…
