Today, I am super excited to be part of a blog hop hosted by Alicia from A Burst of Beautiful! You get to take a peak inside (and outside) the homes of some extremely talented bloggers and get the scoop on how they styled their fall tables. So pull up a chair. . .
Of all the seasons to focus on table decor, fall feels like the most important because of the significance of Thanksgiving dinner.
I am already taking inventory on who is still in town in our family and physically able to host Thanksgiving and I can see that I will get the honor again. Actually, it’s a relief to already have my table layout decided upon and I am excited to share it with you.
Let me take you through the design process I used to design this year’s Farmhouse Fall Tablescape.
Farmhouse Fall Tablescape
First, I laid my favorite wool blanket down as my table cloth. I turned it at an angle so the lines were running diagonally and the fringe was sweeping across on either end. I love the uniqueness and coziness of choosing a throw blanket as the foundation for this look.
Next, I placed a sage green and a peach heirloom pumpkin in the center and used some pheasant feathers in a jug to add some height and texture.
To bring in even more texture and some warmth, I tucked in a faux sage plant and a sprig of white flowers with my favorite Park Hill candle.
Once the centerpiece was done, I could focus on the place settings. I would love to own some brown transferware someday, even if it were just some salad plates. But, until that day, my thrifted, mismatched white dishes will do just fine.
My love for all things copper gets to show itself each fall. And in this case, I pulled out my copper Moscow mule mugs and plastic (shhhhh!) copper flatware. When you have a lot of company coming and want to have some special silverware, the metallic plastic sets can really be the way to go!
And finally, I just grabbed what I had on hand for the finishing touch- an apple that could act as a place card or just a humble farmhouse detail with a pop of color.
