Happy September friends!!!
I really love Fall truly I do but that was one fast Summer, am I right? Although technically it’s not Fall until September 22nd I find myself wanting to get our fireplace going, the chill is in the air. I really feel like this is my season, I’ve done so many posts about fall;
And being a nature freak I did a whole post once on how fall decorates for us… corny? Maybe, but that’s me.
It’s kind of clear really, I’m smitten with this season, what about you, do you have a favourite season?
I thought I’d rejoice in my love of all things Fall with a new blog post, what better way is there to celebrate this awesome season than by sharing all the Fall ideas with you guys?! Mantels, tablescapes, wreaths, printables and porches! Seriously there will be some amazing Autumn inspiration all this week. I’m joining in with 24 bloggy friends for this annual, “Fall Ideas Tour”, my lovely friend, Angie from Postcards From the Ridge invited me to share a fall inspired tablescape and since I like to jump into things I know nothing about… haha I said a great big YES!
Tuesday is here Friends and this is my Fall tablescape debut, I sure hope you like it? (a little needy, but also me 😉 ) Were you expecting our Fall porch? I thought I’d try something a little different this year, this is my very first blogged tablescape! Shocking, I know. haha Let me know what you think?
Now that Fall is basically here the bugs have flown the coop (no pun intended) and I couldn’t be happier about that! Eating outside is much less fidgety, if you know what I’m saying? No swatting at pests, just a cool breeze, some good company and a simple Fall tablescape. Truth be told, I only set this tablescape up for this post… but the reaction I got from both of my boys when they arrived home was so touching – they loved everything! So of course we ate our BBQed chicken dinner and enjoyed this simple and relaxing vibe! Sigh…
This whole tablescape was very easy to put together, I used my Ikea faux eucalyptus and some real eucalyptus from our local nursery along with some previously shed fallow deer antlers as the inspiration for the centerpiece. Some dried peonies and golden dyed wheat brought all of the colours from my Mom’s vintage plates into the centerpiece. Those plates were a part of a china set, given to her by her Mother. I was helping Mom organize her cupboards once and she told me should could not stand to part with these dishes, even though she didn’t like the pattern very much and never used this china! Because they were a special gift from my Grandmother she always packed them up and brought them to every new home and NEVER used them. I of course LOVE them and I’m thrilled to be using them now. I also love the linen table runner (I added some pompom trim for fun) on the black table cloth, it really is a nice contrast and pops the dishes just perfectly.
We are very casual around here, nothing very hoity toity about us and we really like it that way. I do however love our new smoked glass wine glasses from, Urban Barn they add a tiny bit of toity. That smoke colour is perfect, moody and just right for this simple rustic tablescape. I also love Mom’s vintage amber bubble juice glasses… they are my favourite. I’m always scanning thrift stores and yard sales to add to my collection.
I love how the light was changing in the late afternoon when I was shooting this Fall tablescape, it’s like nature put up some twinkle lights just for us. I told ya, I’m corny! haha
I picked up some mini wood slices one day while puttering around in a store, I’m not even sure how long I’ve had them? I do know they were in the clearance section though… a tiny bit of gold jute and some wheat, just add those wood slices with your guest’s names on their napkins this adds such a personal touch to a tablescape.
Our girl, Dodi makes all kinds of appearances over on Instagram but I’ve only posted about her once at Christmas time, she is my faithful assistant and is very helpful in everything I do. She is 10 months old now and has grown into such a loyal baby, she is such a healing addition for our family! She absolutely loves on everyone she meets a little too much, hahaha. She enjoyed this Fall tablescape too! OMGoodness, that face though!!!!!!
I added a little more sparkle by using my Mother in law’s vintage gold cutlery, to say I love this cutlery is an understatement! Bud and I have been together for many years (35 yrs to be exact) and I’ve had many, many holiday feasts at her table with these golden beauties, so many wonderful and cherished memories. I am so honoured that she wanted to give these to us when she decided she wanted to downsize, they are so special to us. We use them for all occasions, not just the big ones. These things are made to be used, making memories, telling stories and enjoying the feast.
I really hope you enjoyed our simple but beautiful rustic Fall tablescape. I also hope you will take advantage of all the Fall ideas from my bloggy friends, pop back in all week for some major inspiration.
Have a lovely day,
