Decorating the Table for Fall

Decorating the Fall Table FB

 

The hot pink and bright blues are gone and it’s fall y’all!  I can hardly believe that I am already bringing down the bins from the garage labeled “FALL”.  I love the warm colors of fall and like I have mentioned before, I live in Florida and it always looks like summer over here.  But inside the house, we can create a fall atmosphere with a little yellow and a dash of orange.

My fall table last year was really simple and I used some faux florals to decorate.  While the faux florals will last all season, these pretty roses went on sale at Whole Foods and well…how much will power am I supposed to have?!  I had already said no to buying the organic chocolate that they were sampling.  I did say yes to the sample, by the way.  I’m not that crazy.

I didn’t have a tablecloth that would work with this color scheme, so I purchased fabric from Walmart and folded it lengthwise and created a runner.  No sewing = win!

These orange goblets are from Crate and Barrel , I purchased them online on clearance!  They were less than half of their original price.  I don’t know about you but I always go straight to the sale/clearance items in a store or online.  Sometimes the items on sale are not that nice (and that’s why they are on clearance) but there are times when you can find items that went out of season but not style, like these.

Tip:  I always purchase an extra plate or goblet just in case one breaks, I still have a set intact.

In the picture below, I added a pretty white pumpkin which would make this setting perfect for Thanksgiving.   I only have one pumpkin like this (which I picked up at Target) but last year I showed you some inexpensive ones that I have a full set of.  Either way, pumpkin or no pumpkin – this would work for Thanksgiving.

I used a maize color napkin that I have had for years and they launder beautifully.  I purchased these at World Market , they usually have a great selection of color for their napkins.  Remember to take advantage of online reviews because they will tell you things like “these napkins shrink when washed” or “they lose their color”.  I have avoided lots of dud purchases by reading reviews.  Plus, I am horrible at returning items so I would rather read than return.

And how beautiful are these flowers?  In a few days I will show you how easily I put together the arrangement.  If I could, I would have fresh flower arrangements in every room, even the bathroom!  I know that they are an added unnecessary expense but they certainly complete the table.  I used roses and hydrangeas this time, but I usually buy whatever bundle is on sale.

I had leftover roses so I made 2 tiny arrangements for either side of the table.  It would also be pretty to have these little arrangements down the length of the table instead of a large centerpiece.

I have these gold and white fruit that I purchased last year at Target and I scattered them down the center of the table.

I know that in less than a week I will have to change out the centerpiece when the flowers wilt but I will enjoy their fragrance and beauty in the meantime.  As soon as I change out the centerpiece, I will let you know what I come up with.  Don’t you love decorating for fall?

This year I am happy to be part of Stringtown Home’s annual “Harvest Tour of Homes” where some amazing bloggers share their harvest home ideas.  There are recipes, decor, crafts…you name it!  I am planning to stop by all of them and I hope you will too.  Let them know that you are visiting from Graceful Order.

Have a blessed season everyone!

    I like visiting the clearance section too. Sometimes it’s dangerous. Hobby Lobby comes to mind. The flowers are so pretty. I love fresh flowers, but rarely get them. What a great treat. I’m visiting you from the Harvest Home Tour.

    Hi, Maria

    This tablescape is absolutely gorgeous, I am so excited that fall has finally arrived (though it doesn’t feel like it in Japan where I am currently residing). The colors alone make me think of fall. I like that you kept it very classy, those orange goblets are to die for, and on clearance?! Amazing. Thanks for linking up at Welcome Home Wednesday. This is actually my first time visiting your blog so I’m going to take a look around!
