Fall Tablescape-FREE PRINTABLE!

I cleaned out my garage this week, and as I was moving things from one place to another, I came across a stack of old copper bowls and buckets that had been left on a shelf sometime during our last move. YAY!   

Fall Tablescape

I got super excited, because I had been envisioning a fall table filled with accents of copper and wood and the glow of candlelight. So a few days ago, I dragged my favorite table out to the patio and began gathering the elements I had been thinking about for a warm and woodsy Fall tablescape.

First of all, I have to admit, I have been to HomeGoods a few times (okay, maybe about a dozen times) in the last several weeks.  They have had the most beautiful variety of neutral Fall decor and some great new linens.  I collected a few new things in anticipation of Fall and this is how it all came together.

Fall Tablescape

I started the tablescape with a linen table cloth that has gorgeous shades of gray in a "fall-ish" print. (One of my HomeGoods finds!) I didn't open the cloth all the way, but instead used it as a runner.  I intentionally didn't flatten it out, but left it a bit crumpled and loose in order to keep the overall look very informal.

Fall Centerpiece

I then added wood slabs as chargers...I love the rustic feel of these.  So simple and yet they make a great Fall statement, don't you think?  These were purchased online and you can find them by clicking HERE.

I used lace-edged, soft gray napkins from Piu Belle, that I also found at Home Goods.  These also are not perfectly pressed, but have a few wrinkles...I like this look, especially for an outdoor table.

I already had these gray plates (also from HomeGoods..what a surprise!) and I love the way they coordinate with the whole look.

Copper Mug Fall Table

These shiny copper mugs were the true inspiration for this table setting.  I don't take them out often, but they seem so perfect this time of year. They are just calling for a yummy hot toddy or spiced cider!

One of my re-discoveries in the garage was this dented old copper bucket I had acquired at a flea market many years ago.  I wanted to incorporate it into this tablescape, so I put a smaller glass vase inside the bucket and added some simple seeded eucalyptus and white roses I had gotten at the market for less than$20! 

 It literally took five minutes to put this arrangement together...no fuss or complications.

Fall Table Setting

For a little additional nod to Fall, I grabbed a few small white pumpkins, several birch wood wrapped candles and a couple of decorative wood pumpkins (I bet you can guess where these are from!) to sprinkle along the linen runner.

The final layer I added was these super simple paper place cards.  I printed them on kraft paper, cut them into strips, gave them a little bend and tucked them under the salad plate.

I love the way these complete the look of the table and also add a personal touch to each place, so I wanted to share them with you!

One final thing, I love to add decorative pillows to chairs around a dining table.  They add a softness and another layer of color and texture to the whole setup.

So there you have it...my early Fall table, complete with a little DIY place card. I hope this gives you a bit of inspiration in the coming weeks as the weather cools, the leaves fall and the harvest moon rises.

Stepping Off The Hamster Wheel

Stepping Off The Hamster Wheel

Last fall marked the beginning of a major transformation in my life, one that ultimately had a much larger impact than I initially anticipated.  It all began because I had become SO BUSY (with a capital B!) that I could barely see straight most of the time.

A few weeks back I found a great fishing basket at a local vintage shop...well, technically it's called a creel, but since I don't fish, I'll probably always call it a basket! Anyways, I had been looking for one for awhile to hang
