Autumn is one of my favorite times of the year because I love creating fall tablescapes. The cooler weather is a relief after months of hot, humid days. When the pumpkins start to arrive and the leaves start to turn, I begin thinking about my fall table decor. Each year I try to come up with something new.
~ Thanksgiving 2018 ~
My design this year was Farmhouse Elegance. I started with a buffalo check table runner and I added colors of light green and gold. I used items that I already had as well as a few things from Pier one and Michaels.
~ Thanksgiving 2017 ~
I tried a new set of plates for our Thanksgiving 2017 tablescape. My usual standby is my Ashville Leaves pattern with green wood chargers from Pier 1. This year I found a new pattern on the clearance rack. I was lucky to find 6 matching plates with wood chargers. I went with a large white Martha Stewart pumpkin from Macy’s. The table turned out warm and inviting.
I felt ambitious in 2017. In addition to our main dining room, I also created a “budget friendly” tablescape in our kitchen. This tablescape was created from my pan room. I didn’t purchase anything new for this table. I started with a tablecloth that I got at Pier 1 years ago on clearance. I used simple white plates, plastic orange chargers, and little green cast iron ramekins. I created a centerpiece out of a cast iron pumpkin and some Dollar Tree pumpkins. The table was very festive!
~ Thanksgiving 2016 ~
Thanksgiving 2016 was my first attempt at creating a full on tablescape. I started with a tablecloth from Macy’s. My dinnerware is Asheville Leaves from Pier 1. My biggest expenditure was the green wood chargers. All the other pieces came from the Christmas Tree Shop, Home Goods, and Michael’s.
