A simple Fall table using blue, white and orange.
So let's talk fall table decor.
This is a first at Chatfield Court. If you've been following me for awhile then you know that we aren't formal when it comes to setting a table.
I don't have any fancy china or silver to put out.
For us, meals are served simply with our white, everyday dishes and silverware that I've had for years
When Angie, from Postcards from the Ridge, invited me to join in on her Fall Ideas Tour, I thought it would be fun to pull together a simple fall table, just by shopping my house.
It's a little nicer than we would normally go (ok, it's a lot nicer!), but it was fun to do something different.
I wanted to set a pretty table but I didn't want to go out and buy a bunch of things that would never get used again.
With that in mind I just searched my house and gathered things together to set a festive fall table.
I started with our everyday white plates along with some smaller blue and white plates I had packed away.
The woven placemats, that add a bit of rustic texture, and the napkins are all from a few years ago.
The silverware and glasses also get used everyday.
To add some fall color I decided to use traditional orange pumpkins, and even went a little glam with some sparkle.
I just made these myself with some $1.50 pumpkins.
I could have used the Dollar Store pumpkins I transformed with plaid tissue paper a couple years back, but I'm loving the sparkle.
So, I had a little napkin dilemma...
I could only find 2 in my stash that had an embroidered pumpkin on them. Not good when you're setting a table for four.
Instead of trying to find more I just pulled out 2 plain napkins in the same ivory color.
Remember, we're not setting a formal table so I think it's ok.
I wanted to use a few real pumpkins, but couldn't find them yet, so I bought 3 green pumpkin squash from a local farm stand.
Together with the faux and glam pumpkins and a bit of greenery from my yard, we made a simple fall centerpiece.
The adorable pumpkin cookies were also purchased.
They were so cute and matched my fall table perfectly (plus the hubs loves cookies).
That's it for the purchases though.
It was so fun to step out of my box and set a pretty table. I may even do it again...someday.
Hubs will so happy (especially if it involves cookies).
