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, mis-matched 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.
