This simple fall tablescape is classic and understated whether you’re looking to decorate the dining room or entertain guests.

I just love the look of a set table don’t you? But to be honest, if you’ve been following for awhile, you know I keep things very informal around here. So for this fall tablescape, I wanted it to be simple and understated yet something that you could also replicate if you were having guests over or for Thanksgiving.  Let me show you how I put this simple fall tablescape together using our white every day dishes and adding in some autumnal and gold hues.

I always start by gathering things I already have at home and taking an inventory first. I will usually see from there if I can come up with a coordinating color palette.

I started with white every day dishware and brown woven placemats that I had. I layered it on top of these beautiful blue chargers I got from Amazon.

I had the brown linen napkins already. I knew that I was going to add my gold candlesticks to the table so I decided to complement them with some gold napkin rings. I found these gold metal leaf rings on Amazon as well.

I love to decorate using amber and teal glass bottles so I decided to use those to create a centerpiece.  To add a seasonal pop of color I filled the bottles with faux leaves in rich orange hues.

I love how this looks, a classic way to decorate the dining room for fall or Thanksgiving.

Now you could most certainly add a table runner if you wanted to. I liked how it looked without.

When setting my tables for every day I don’t set with flatware just because it’s less for the kids to play with and get their hands on. If you’re having guests over, I would choose a beautiful gold flatware.

I’m linking some of the items I used below.

Fall front porch decor that isn't mums

One of my favorite things to do in fall is decorate my front porch. I love front walkways filled with pumpkins in various colors, fall florals and greens. This year I decided to do something a little different and use all faux so no rotting pumpkins  Scroll down to see this year’s fall front porch decor that isn’t mums. I’ve got a DIY pumpkin topiary and a faux cabbage arrangement.

Pumpkin Topiary

There’s just something that I love about a pumpkin topiary. I’ve been looking at various ones but for a single stack it’s easily over $100. Perfect example, this one below for over $130.

Pumpkin topiary

 

So I decided to DIY a pumpkin topiary myself. I gathered some pumpkins in different colors and sizes and got to work!  I simply just pulled the stems off, added a ring of super glue and stacked each pumpkin on top.

This one topiary cost me about $54 to make, so I got two for still less the price of the one above! And the best part, it’s faux so it won’t rot. I can use year after year.

That’s a smart investment if you ask me 🙂

Faux Cabbage Arrangement

Ornamental cabbage or kale is so beautiful in baskets on the front porch. I did some real cabbage last year but of course, it didn’t last long. So I decided to search for some faux cabbage. Leave it to Amazon to pull through.

At first when I got these in the mail I wasn’t so sure.

But once you open them and fluff out the leaves it is so lush! And this basket is perfect!

Tip – I put some rocks in the bottom to weigh it down and clipped the bottom of the stem of cabbage so that it fits nicely.
