Happy Fall, Y’all! It’s officially fall—my favorite season of the year. I love when the weather starts to turn crisp and cool and gives us a break from those unbearable Texas summers. It’s not quite cool here yet, but I cannot wait for cooler temps, sweater weather, and visits to the pumpkin patch that are sure to be just around the corner! To help get in the Fall spirit, today I am sharing my dining room all decked out for Fall. Plus, I am joining ten other talented bloggers as we share loads of fall inspiration with you! Be sure to check them all out at the end of this post!
I am so excited to share this space with you today! This is the first time since we bought this house 3 years ago, that the dining room has been semi-put-together. It’s basically been a junk room until late last year, when I found a farmhouse dining table that I loved. (This post contains affiliate links; see my full disclosure policy here).
As with anything I create, I wanted it to be simple. I don’t know about you, but I just don’t have loads of time to pour over creating spaces—especially for something like Thanksgiving, when so much time needs to be dedicated to cooking and other preparations. So, I’m showing you a Thanksgiving/Fall tablescape that you can really put together in just a few minutes, using burlap, white pumpkins, candles, and eucalyptus. (I used a lot of these elements in last year’s fall tablescape, too).
I basically raided the Target wedding section for this tablescape. I started with a burlap table runner. They are only $4 each! I had to overlap two to get the length I wanted. You could also use a kraft paper roll—which I was going to use until I saw this burlap. I like how it adds just a little extra texture.
Then, I added a faux eucalyptus garland from the Magnolia line at Target. To give it some extra texture and thicken it up a bit, I added additional faux eucalyptus on top of the Magnolia garland. I found faux eucalyptus for $3 at Walmart. Or, you can can get the real deal at Trader Joe’s, also for only $3/bunch.
Then, I just added faux pumpkins and candles all throughout the eucalyptus garland. So easy.
I moved the captain’s chair in the picture above, so you could see the detail on this farmhouse table. You can get rug details here.
For each place setting, I added a napkin topped with a single white pumpkin.
Don’t be fooled! That flatware is plastic ware I picked up at the Target wedding section!
One of my goals this year was to paint my interior doors. And I’m pretty shocked to say, we actually got it accomplished! These are painted in Benjamin Moore’s Kendall Charcoal and I love the character it adds to the dining room. Eventually, though, we plan to replace the doors with a sliding barn door.
I found this throw at Home Goods. It think it gives the space such a cozy feel.
You can catch a rare glimpse of our staircase in this shot, as well as a peek of the board and batten we did in the hallway. One day, I promise, I’ll blog about it! I know a few of you have asked for the DIY on that one!
In the background above, you can spy a few painted pumpkins I did this season. I saved the tutorial on my highlights on Instagram. So easy. And now, just a few more pics before we wrap up this tour!
I hope you’ve enjoyed taking this little tour of my dining room. Thanks for joining me! Be sure to check out the posts of these talented blogger friends below for even more Fall inspiration!
