I created this simple fall tablescape using my fall dishes and making a couple of diy projects. I painted the stems of some dollar store glasses to add some copper to the table. I also knitted a table runner to give some softness and texture to my fall tablescape.
I am so thrilled to be included in the Fall Tablescape Tour where a group of bloggers showcase their fall tables hoping to give you some great ideas that you can use in your home. I really appreciate Chloe from Celebrate and Decorate including me because she is the queen of creating gorgeous tables!
I am a big believer in that you can decorate your home without over spending. We are girls that love to be surrounded with pretty things, right? I think that it is so much fun to decorate my home with décor for each season, and I don’t want to spend too much because next year, I might want something a little different.
My husband and I built this 8 foot table with a zinc top a few weeks ago and I am finding that they do not make runners for large tables. I want my runner to hang over the edge so I figured I would make one.
I knitted the table runner in a couple of hours and I am so in love with it. It looks so soft and cozy, and I thought that it would be perfect for a fall or winter table setting. Visit Table Runner blog post for the super easy directions to knit a runner yourself.
I had these solid colored dinner plates and salad plates that I love to use for fall. I can easily change my setting up every year by changing napkins or I can put a decorative plate on top.
I purchased 6 glasses with stems at Fred’s for $1 a piece.
I came home and painted the stems with old gold paint and I think that they look very expensive now. I used the color old gold because it has a copper look to it without being too red.
I found some beautiful plaid napkins at Home Goods, and I had the wood grain chargers that I use often because they go with everything. I found 5 copper pumpkins and 1 brown pumpkin at the dollar store. I painted the one brown pumpkin with the paint that I used on my glasses and it looks just like the other ones.
I found my dough bowl at the thrift store over a year ago. I think I spotted from across the store and ran for it like a crazy women on Black Friday. The stick pumpkins look like the bowl was made for them to sit in.I started to add more to my fall tablescape but I really didn’t want to cover up my beautiful handmade runner or my zinc table top! Now, my table is set and ready so bring on the cool weather!! Don’t forget to visit the other talented blogger’s homes to see their fall table and I hope you find some great ideas so that you can surround yourself with beautiful things for fall!
