Fall Dinning Room

Good Morning!

Yesterday I was able to put the finishing touches on my decor in the Dinning Room and I thought you might like a quick look at what I've done.

Once again, I really wanted to make sure my decor felt bright and airy but still give the room a cozy, festive look.

A simple white tablecloth hides the oak table beneath and give me a great base to work with.  I then added white dinnerware and silver flatware.

For a pop of color and texture I paired the dinnerware with a soft flannel napkin in a lovely plaid.

The napkins are so nice, I may end up making a few more to have on hand for Thanksgiving.  Not only are they super soft and helpful to use, I love the color it adds to the mostly white table.

For a centerpiece, I wanted something rustic looking.  

This plank of distressed wood makes the perfect base.

I next added this chunky pillar candelabra that I found at the thrift store.  I have been waiting months to use it, seems so perfect for this time of the year.

Around the base of the candelabra I slipped on a simple grapevine wreath.  I then attached a berry vine to the wreath by simply weaving it over and under the twigs of the wreath.  

And what's a fall centerpiece without a pumpkin or two!
I added two small pumpkins from my garden and some tin letters to fill in the remaining space on the distressed wood plank.

I think the whole arrangement turned out very nicely.

Every evening the battery operated candles I placed on the candelabra flicker on and makes the whole room glow - it's so pretty.

On the tiny mantel shelve behind the table I hung a pretty fall like print above the shelf.

I kept the shelf itself overly simplistic. 

I think it looks fantastic.

Simple faux branches of leaves tucked into a small tarnished sugar bowl.

Not only is it a great pop of color but simple and gorgeous!

A tiny pumpkin resting in a simple oval ironstone dish is the perfect accent under the print hanging above it.

On a corner table a trio of pumpkins and a unadorned grapevine wreath bring a little festive fun to the room.

So there you have it. 

My fall Dinning Room.

I am so pleased with how it turned out.

I'm thinking I will only have to add a few more items to transition it into a fresh look for my Thanksgiving table. That will be a big time saver for sure!

Hope you enjoyed . . . 

bye now,

  1. It does look fantastic, Robin. I love how you kept it simple but still perfect for the season. I have always loved plaid so I think your napkins are adorable and look so pretty with your white dishes.

  2. Your living room is beautiful with a fantastic balance of objects and color.
    The arches with chicken wire are my favorite. I'm a big arches fan.

  3. I love your dining room,,,and the bit of plaid on the plates is perfect! Your pictures are so nice and clear,,,the white walls help I'm sure and it looks like you have some nice natural light from the window. Great shots!!
