Who’s ready to decorate for fall?? Is it too early? Never! As much as I love summer (it’s my favorite) I have been waiting for fall this year.
I’m so ready to cozy up by the fire with a warm chai latte. I’m ready for plaid, pumpkins and apple picking. This may be the weirdest year on record (at least in my lifetime) but I’m not about to let that ruin fall!
So today I’ve got some fall home decorating inspiration for you. I’m super excited to share this with you, it was so fun to put together!
For the dining table I went with pumpkins on pumpkins on pumpkins. They key here is the more the merrier haha, but seriously pumpkins of varying sizes and textures makes a really interesting table scape. The important thing to keep in mind is keeping it consistent in terms of color and/or tones.
Our house has a very muted boho meets farmhouse feel right now with soft clay and sea foam colors. So I opted for beige, white, and a little clay for my pumpkins. You could totally do bolder more traditional colors like brown, orange and red. Or something a little more chic like black, white and gold or even all white! The point is, use varying textures and sizes within the same color scheme to create a consistent yet interesting fall tablescape.
But not everything has to be on theme for fall! In fact I like my seasonal decor to fall into place with our everyday decor. As you can see my runner is the macrame one I already had on the table but it really works because it ties our house in to the fall decor.
I continued the pumpkin on pumpkin look on top of our buffet. Using small pedestals and books to give some of the pumpkins height. Although the whole top is covered with decor I still try to keep grouping of three.
If you notice there is a grouping of three on either side of the buffet and then the larger piece in the middle. Groups of three are more pleasing to the eye and it’s honestly the only way my brain operates (kidding…sort of).
I used this same method of grouping on the table as well. First I placed the lantern and candle holders. Then I started at each end with small groups of pumpkins. Lastly I filled in the middle. Then voila a perfect fall table scape.
Then there’s the fall styled tiered tray. I mean I think this needs its very own post. I’ve admittedly never done one of these before but have always admired them. This year is my year ya’ll!
I did a bit of a tea theme with our small gooseneck kettle as one of the larger anchor pieces. Mixed with a few small tea cups and a creamer cup. Then I filled it in with pumpkins (shocker I know) and topped it off with some greenery. I saved a little spot on the bottom front for a small ‘fall’ block sign that I’m hoping I can find or make.
As you can see in all the areas of fall decorating in our house I continued with a similar color scheme. I really think that makes all the difference.
I can’t wait to see how you decorate for fall this year. Would you take a photo and tag me on instagram @the_lovely_mama so I can share it with our community? Can’t wait!
I’m sure I’ll be back here soon with some cozy fall diffuser blends and warm drinks. Stay tuned!
