Welcome to the ‘Falling Into Autumn’ Tablescape Blog Hop with some of my favorite blogger friends!  After you check out my fall tablescape, stop by all the blogs linked at the bottom of the post for more fall inspiration. Hopefully, you find some new ideas to use in your home and get excited about the upcoming fall season, as much as I did when I styled my dining room.

 

 

The Centerpiece

I used a variety of vintage bottles in blues, greens and clear glass to hold fresh carnations and stems from my yard.  To give the pumpkins height, I used cupcake pedestals.  I mixed the pumpkins, bottles with flowers, fresh pears, and a few brass candlesticks down the center of the table.  A felt leaf garland is strung between.  The wooden tags with the words “Hello, Fall’ and  ‘gather’ scripted over leaves are from my friend Devanie at Krumpet’s Home Decor.  You can get 10 % off at Krumpet’s with code CUTERTUDOR!  These tags are great for trays, hanging on pumpkin stems or tying to napkins at each place setting.

 

One of my favorite things about fall is all the beautiful textures. It’s actually a great idea to vary textures to add contrast, so I did that with my place settings.  These wicker chargers may have bene the first chargers I ever purchased many years ago.  It goes to show some things never go out of style.   I mixed in galvanized chargers from Crate and Barrel, pretty patterned cloth napkins and my everyday white plates. For easy dining, I layered in some inexpensive melamine dishes with blue and green pumpkins and gourds.  On top, I placed small leaf plates and pumpkins in a soft aqua color.  I recently found these glasses with wicker sleeves from Tuesday Morning.

 

The Place Setting

I often like to repeat certain colors or textures in a tablescape or room, like the wicker chargers and cups in each place setting.  However,  it is okay to let one act as an accent only and be used one time, like the galvanized metal chargers.  Galvanized is very rustic so if used a lot, it will transform the look.  I wanted a softer look for this particular tablescape, so I kept it to a minimal.    I used warm metallic accents throughout the room… the gold frame, brass candlesticks, gold tips on the pumpkins.  I think the warm wood tones and metals contrast well with some of the cooler colors.

 

 

I think the little pumpkin is the ‘cherry on top.’   It adds a fun element at each place setting layered over the leaf shaped plate, both lined in gold!  Always, have fun with your tablescapes!

 

If you follow me on Instagram stories, I shared these pumpkin plates from Family Dollar for $1.50 each.  They come in traditional fall colors and this set of blue grey pumpkins.  I don’t buy a lot of seasonal plates, but when you can get 14 plates for under $20, it’s a no brainer.  They are melamine and dishwasher safe, but even if that just last a few seasons, that is perfectly okay with my wallet. Otherwise, I always say buy classic pieces that transcend any season… see, even I break my own rules.  For place cards, I used this succulents with clips on the back and gift tags sharing sweet messages from The Findery.

I had to include a picture of these carnations, so pretty and the same shade as the pears.  I love when little details come together.  Thanks for stopping by the blog.  Enjoy the rest of the tour!  Don’t forget to pin now, so you can make it later!  Or follow my on Instagram @cutertudor for more daily decor and DIY tips for your home!

      Beautiful table! I love those glasses, too! I wish I lived near a Tuesday Morning!

      I was at Family Dollar last night and saw those plates. I couldn’t decide between the green or the ones with orange. THey were such a good deal, I decided to get both. LOL

      You are so sweet! I am so glad to be in this blog hop with you and follow your Instagram account. I love finding fresh ideas and inspiration, and you have done that for me. The chandelier was original to our entry way but I had it moved to our dining room, where it seemed to fit better.
