I’m a sucker for a pretty tablescape. I could (and sometimes do) spend HOURS scrolling through Pinterest and Instagram gathering inspiration from the lavish and meticulously decorated dinner parties of my dreams. These days, people go all out for every single occasion – I’ve seen a full sit-down dinner with name cards, floral arrangements, and outrageous centerpieces for a Frozen themed first birthday party on Pinterest… I wouldn’t go that far, but I love decorating in a way that’s appealing and interesting to look at.
Something that a lot of people don’t know about me is the fact that I collect vintage china and glassware as a little side business/hobby! I’m always looking for ways to use it in my own house, and I’m sure I’ll be sharing it here as often as I can. This sometimes leads to a fully-staged dining room table for no occasion at all, and today it led to my bright fall table!
Other than my baby pumpkins, everything I used were things that we already had around the house. The goblets have been thrifted over time, we got the napkins on sale years ago, and I bought the china at a flea market in Wyoming on our family vacation two summers ago. It came in a set of 125 pieces, and I still can’t believe that my dad let me buy it considering we had to get it back across the country in my aunt and uncle’s RV! Because these pieces have a story, it makes them even more special.
How do you decorate for fall? Pumpkins galore? Halloween all the way? I want to know! Let me know in the comments below, and share your fall tablescape photos with me!
