I’ve always said that I’m a sucker for a pretty tablescape, and I definitely am. I am constantly saving home decor and table inspiration for future holidays and occasions. And this year, there’s just something even more special about decorating for the holidays because it’s our first fall/winter season in our new home as a married couple! I’ve already gotten started this fall with a simple fall tablescape for our breakfast table.
I’ve never been big on decorating for the holidays, but you better believe I’ll be going all out this year! I want to be really intentional about the decor I choose for our home, making sure I’m selecting items that we will be able to use for years to come instead of trendy items that we’ll get rid of in a year or two. Neither of us really have any decor to start off with other than some Christmas ornaments collected over the years, so it’s been very exciting to dream up what we’d love for our home! The fall and winter seasons bring all the cozy vibes and I’m so excited to bring those feelings into our home.
I’m planning on going to pick out pumpkins and mums for our house soon, and I couldn’t be more excited! But I got a head start by starting on my simple fall tablescape in our kitchen, so I’m sharing the details below!
Decorating for the holidays can be so overwhelming, so I brought my mom along to Hobby Lobby to help me narrow down what would go best in my home. We completely fell in love with these very rustic woodgrain chargers. I have a wood grain breakfast table that was passed down from my grandparents, so I used these light blue melamine plates from Pottery Barn to break up the wood visually. I layered the chargers with these adorable little black and white barn plates (also from Hobby Lobby) and these Thankful. Grateful. Blessed. dinner napkins from Euna Mae’s.
I also grabbed some ticking plush pumpkins from Hobby Lobby to mix in around my house, and later found some adorable wooden pumpkins in the Target Dollar Section that I’ll add in, as well! My buffet table in our kitchen still needs a lot of work, but I love how this little pumpkin looks mixed in with my glassware and other items!
How are you decorating for fall this year? Pumpkins galore? Halloween-themed? Non-traditional colors? I want to know!
