I Love Fall Tablescapes

Hot in the blogging world are seasonal tablescapes.  Take your formal (or informal) dining table and fill it up with a variety of dried flowers, twigs, candles, and pumpkins in the fall.  Add some cheesecloth ghosts and a few craft foam tombstones for Halloween and maybe a turkey made from an apple and popsicle sticks for Thanksgiving...it can be beautiful whether your stile is chic and modern or relaxed and crafty, there are tons of ways you can make your table unique and seasonal.

Here are some great examples of beautiful blogger tablescapes:

From Design, Dining and Diapers:

I love the sleek cylindrical containers - such a great juxtaposition with the organic shapes that fill them.

From House on the Way:

I like how casual & traditional this one is - using burlap (very in right now) and pumpkins & corn.  And I like the second fabric/ribbon around the candle.  I think it really pulls the whole thing together.

These are such great examples of how you can bring nature inside, combine hard and soft surfaces to create a beautiful  spot in the middle of a room.  Take some time to pop over to their blogs to see more pics and to see what else these bloggers are up to.

There are tons of other examples out there in the Blogiverse, so pop over to Pinterest and do a quick search for "Fall decor".

Now, I bet you're wondering whether I will share MY tablescape - NO WAY!  Sadly we are not tablescaping this year.  Our dining table is a workhorse - being the only place to eat in the house.  With 3 meals a day and 2 young kids, there's a lot of wiping so we need a pretty clear surface.  Not only that, but lately Chris has been more destructive than Gozer (Ghostbusters reference) so we need to keep stuff out of reach - if we had a centerpiece he'd probably be too distracted to eat.  We can't even put a tablecloth ont here without him doing the whole grab-and-drag thing.  It's sort of comical, until you're the one cleaning everything up off the floor.

I will be decorating for Fall, and sharing it when I do, so check back!!


  1. I love tablescapes too! Unfortunately, my 2 year old loves them too much to actually display them at the moment. =( Great roundup! And thanks for linking up to the CHQ blog hop! Hope to see you again next week!
