Fall is here!
I am excited to share how I decorated my dining table for fall this year.
I wanted simple.
The way I achieved this was to add some fabulous fall colors and a simple centerpiece.
Our family is busy, and getting dinner on the table in the evenings can sometimes be challenging.
You can probably relate.
When we get together, I love having an easy tablescape that can be cleaned up and put back each time without much effort.
The way I do that is not to have a full-sized tablecloth or none at all.
This makes for an easy-to-clean surface that is inviting to my family.
No one likes to mess up the beautiful tablecloth or cloth napkins, so I have to think about this when setting an everyday table for each season.
Here are the steps on how I decorated my dining table for Fall.
Step One: Lay down a crisp white square tablecloth in the middle of the table.
This tablecloth is small enough not to be in the way when having messy meals like lasagna or spaghetti.
I love the lace edges of the tablecloth, which add a beautiful touch to the table.
Step Two: Place chestnut wood chargers around the table
I place six wood chargers with the gorgeous chestnut color, which adds to the fall decor.
Two years ago, I bought these from Pottery Barn when they were on sale.
Here is a YouTube video sharing my Fall tablescape from last year using these chargers. The blue Currier and Ives plates I used for that tablescape were a perfect complement to these chargers. So, that is another idea!
Here is the link to that blog post, here, on how I decorated my table in 2021.
Step Three: Put a white dinner plate, a white dessert plate, and brown Fleur de Lys bread and butter plate on top of the wood charger.
To add to the simple design of this table, I put these adorable Fleur de Lys Brown bread and butter earthenware by Spode plates.
They are sweet and add to the fall look.
Step Four: Add water goblets.
These water goblets were one of my summer thrift store finds for $1.99 each.
They are so pretty to add to my fall table this year.
I love how it gives a nice sparkle.
Step Five: Add cloth napkins.
These cloth napkins are mustard yellow.
The moment I saw them, they made me smile.
Such a perfect color for fall!
I love oranges and burgundy, but this year that muted yellow has called my name.
I folded them in thirds and slid them into thick silver napkin rings from Pottery Barn.
The napkin rings were on sale many years ago. I love them!
Step Six: Add a floral centerpiece.
A hat box inspired this floral centerpiece.
On one of my thrift store shopping days, I came across a delicate box with the most beautiful brown color.
I immediately imagined the perfect use for this hat box.
Once I got it home, I did a quick DIY and put this centerpiece together.
Here is the tutorial for that DIY project, here.
I place it on the table, and it goes perfectly!
Step Seven: Add a two-tier tray
To give this a beautiful fall look, I added a two-tier tray.
The plates are brown transferware with holes drilled in the center, and these tier rods are added.
I think it adds that “something” special to my table.
Step Eight: Add small clip-on pumpkins to the plate for a festive look!
These little pumpkins are so cute!
I bought these at the dollar store. They have been a fun addition to my table.
My family loves it when I have these on their plate.
Here is the table all set for fall.
The completed look is festive but easy to clean up after meals.
That was my goal, and I think I nailed it!
