Autumn Home Decorating: Simple Fall Table
Hi friends! As we settle into the new season, with Halloween upon us & Thanksgiving next month, I think it’s safe to say we are all in full Fall Swing! I’m finally there, ready to fully embrace it! And I’m so happy we had a rain free afternoon so I could share my latest Autumn home decorating project with you, a simple Fall table.
Since I also don’t like to wait until the last minute… and really, you can’t these days because everything flies off the shelves like leaves in an Autumn breeze… I bought my Fall table decor early in anticipation of setting a Thanksgiving table. It’s so pretty, I decided instead of washing it and putting it away until the big day, I’d enjoy it. Why hide it for the next several weeks, when it’s so pretty and festive?
Last year I bought a few pieces of the limited edition seasonal collection, and this year, I indulged in the plates and bowls! They are so pretty and they coordinate with what I bought previously so that was an added bonus.
Now, if you’ve followed me for any time, you’ll know… I am not a big tablescaper, there are plenty of girls you can follow for gorgeous tables, I’m just not one. Heck, we don’t even have a formal dining room, and I’ve been know to be entirely without a dining room set before. In fact, I just completed the makeover on this one, and refreshed my bench in a yummy navy in time to share all my new Better Homes and Gardens pretties that are now available at your local Walmart, or online [here]. I shopped both ways. Sometimes, select items are limited, so they are in-store only. When I market, I just casually end up in the home decor area of the store. And act shocked when I can’t find the milk…
I used to be very, “I need to see it and touch it” before I can buy it, but I’ve had such good luck with buying my Better Homes and Gardens items online, that I’m actually a little bit spoiled with the to-my-door deliveries now, and the selection online is greater than what is carried in-store.
Since our fireplace is in the dining area, I decide to sprinkle Fall all over the room. Who says you can’t have a butter dish pumpkin on the mantel? Not me!
The hints of deep, coppery bronze on the stem, and on the little Foxes, are so pretty. I love a little sparkle.
The Fox is a tea-light holder, but he wanted to join in the Fall festivities too.
If you ever wondered what the Fox says… that was it. “I want a pumpkin.” Mystery solved.
See? Totally contented.
If you ever have the opportunity to grab a bar cart, do it. Handiest things ever. I’ve used this one all over, but it’s back here for the season, just in time to work hard & look pretty.
I didn’t buy the big serving bowl last season, but I couldn’t resist this year, it is so pretty. The colors are so vibrant and lively!! And they added the loveliest feathers this round.
Someone got a new “do” – Looks pretty carefree to me. Maybe it’ll catch on?
Again, the Owl was meant to be a tea light holder, but I tried this instead.
I think the texture is fun & definitely very “Fall”.
A few more layers to warm things up! Cozy throws and fur pillows are within easy reach for chilly mornings, or to add extra cushion for tired backs.
I’m going to share a full “table setting” later, but for now I thought seeing how you can enjoy your dishes, in a very simple, informal arrangement might be nice.
These are all the items I used for my arrangement. (I’ll share all the links at the end for you!)
I am absolutely & thoroughly enjoying this table every day! The colors are simply sublime!
This decadent metallic flatware has got me a little bit excited to do the real-deal table.
I’ll probably need to invest in a few fresh pumpkins for the table too… can you believe this, is the only real one I’ve bought so far? I can’t.
It definitely needs some pumpkin pals!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I very much enjoy sharing my Better Homes and Gardens finds I discover at Walmart with you! It’s great to share a brand that is well made, and most everyone can afford. I’ve never had seasonal dishes before, and I’m really looking forward to attempting to style a table with them, and hearing what you all think. If you have any secret tips, share them with me in the comments!! xo Shannon
