Fall is upon us and our Texas heat remains ever-present. We’ve had a couple of glimmers of cooler temps and I’m holding out hope that they will be back soon. I’ve been working on a tablescape for our family to enjoy throughout the fall months and I can’t wait to share all of the details with you. Also, I’ve joined up with some lovely ladies to bring you a Fall Blog Hop where you can tour the homes of some very talented bloggers and see how they’ve added touches of fall to their home decor. I have linked the bloggers who are participating at the end of this post.
Neutral layers and various textures are typically what I like to stick to as a rule of thumb for tablescapes in my own home. For this Texas fall tablescape, I used my favorite white linen table runner as a base and added pops of green throughout the cream, white and silver layers. Antlers give the tablescape that Texas twist that makes my hubby happy. And we all know that a hubby who is happy about a fall tablescape is a rare gem in the scheme of home decor! Ha.
Pier 1 has a beautiful wicker charger right now that has a cooler grey tone woven through it, and when it catches the light radiates a beautiful sheen that is just perfect for the holidays. I used this, paired with two different colored linen napkins to add to the layers underneath my place setting.
Three cream toned canisters in two different sizes add height and also set up a subtle focal point of the dried wheat I placed in the smaller canisters. Wine glasses with a platinum lip from our wedding are just the sparkle this natural table needed.
Yellow and green pears from the grocery store gathered together in a simple bread bowl, add texture and color to an otherwise neutral side table in our dining room. This look can easily be achieved using a bowl and anything your heart desires from the produce section!
Gords and mini pumpkins from the wreath section in my local craft store add more pops of color to this simple centerpiece. And wanna know a little secret? The tippy top of that gorgeous, giant center jar broke off completely in the making of my tablescape, and still sits ready to be knocked over to its final death until I can buy some superglue to fix it! In a home with three children, it’s quite a miracle it has lasted this long without breaking any further.
I found some small, white desert bowls at Tuesday Morning and they seemed to be the perfect size to nestle my little green and yellow pumpkins down into. I love that the pumpkins added just the right pop of color to tie the green linen hemstitch napkins into the place setting.
Lastly, I laid some green mossy foliage I had on hand, underneath some white pumpkins and antlers. I painted the antlers and small pumpkins white, using my favorite chalk paint by Southern Honey Texas.
We try to use our dining room a few times a month and I cannot wait to sit around this table that is set for fall and enjoy the ones I love most.
As always, thank you for taking the time to read along. My hope is to inspire, lend a helpful hand in your home decor decisions, and bring glory to God in all that I do, please check out a list of sources and others participating in the blog hop, below. -Tiffany
