Happy Fall friends! If you’re coming over from Becky’s Blog at Buckets of Burlap, Welcome! I am so happy this season is finally here and wanted to share with you how to create a simple fall dining room.The main gathering place for our hosted holiday parties is of course the dining room. Every year I try to add a few new elements and make the space as inviting as possible for our welcome guests. This year I went a bit more minimal and neutral than years past and created a simple space for the Autumns in the Air Fall Home Tour.
I always start with what I have on hand. Dishes, silverware and decor. Read all about my table setting here. I love to design on a budget and the table setting is no different!
The boxwood wreath that hangs on my metal nesting box was switched out for a cottonwood wreath. I added some fall faux foliage to the buffet and included a “Gather” wooden sign. The centerpiece on the table houses some fabric pumpkins I made and you can read all about them and see the tutorial here. They are super simple to make.
The benefit for staying neutral in my decor year round is pieces are easily switched out and all still blend together. It was a little hard for me to stray completely from the fall colors so I added a little here and there. Fall is after all so gorgeous.
As mentioned in my table decor post, the plates are brown ironstone I purchased at a local antique mall as well as the antique silver flatware. The napkins, rings and goblets were wedding gifts. The wicker placemats were purchased at a thrift store and the pinecones were from a local craft store. You don’t have to spend a fortune for your simple fall dining room. However, I buy pieces year round that I find and love and put it away until the holiday approaches. I even buy Christmas decor in July if it’s something I love and is priced right!
Simple Fall Dining Room
I had a lot of fun creating this space and in true Laura fashion, I am quite certain I will change it around many times before we have guests.
What are your favorite decor pieces you use?
