While the weather is having trouble making up it’s mind, I’m over here in full on fall mode creating outdoor fall tablescape. Since photographing this, I have decorated several more that I will share soon 😉 Give me a little taste of cooler evenings and I’m breaking out the flannels and refusing to look back. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not ready for anything cooler than 50º, but I sure am glad the ninety degree temps have moved on out!
Outdoor Fall Tablescape
A few weeks ago my husband, Glenn, traveled to Amsterdam, France, and Germany. It was just hard knowing how far away he was, so I stayed busy the best way I knew how. Creating a gorgeous table is one of my favorite hobbies. And yes, I love dragging each piece out even when I don’t have any plans to entertain.
Since shooting this, and G returning home, we hosted a family gathering. That’s another 2 tablescapes for another blog post, but I really think mine and Glenn’s families enjoyed the festive atomosphere.
Fresh Sedum is Spectacular
Sedum is just gorgeous this time of year! Not to mention, it looks pretty all on it’s own! No need for fussy accessory foilage. I look forward to it every fall, and I finally purchased 2 plants for our yard.
These wooden tags are the cutest, aren’t they? They are new this fall from Krumpet’s Home Decor. I was trying to wait until Thanksgiving to debut them, but I couldn’t help myself. They are darling amidst my outdoor fall tablescape, but just think how fun it would be to present a friend with a fall mum and this tag attached?!
Mix Metals – It’s OK!
I’m super loving the mixed metals I have going on here. You can’t beat warm tones of copper and brass, and they pair so well with blush.
Doesn’t it all work well together?
This table setting is sporting another cute wooden tag from Krumpet’s Home Decor. If you saw my early fall home tour, you recognize these vintage inspired farm plates. I just love everything about these! Maybe Pier 1 will come out with this same series for all the seasons.
Add Foilage When You Can
Foilage, whether fresh or faux, can pull together any tablescape. This trail of faux eucalyptus is from Afloral. These stems came as a bunch, and I simply clipped them into individual pieces and layered them down the table. Recently, I found that Afloral has faux seeded eucalyptus garland! I will be ordering some soon! Of course, if I had a Trader Joes just down the road, I would buy fresh 😉
Prop Your Centerpiece Up
I was pretty stoked when my mom shared a piece of leftover butcher block with me a few years back. This slab is mighty heavy, but serves as the perfect prop for my outdoor fall table. Not only does it add texture, it provides an extra boost for my centerpiece.
I used a plaid blanket scarf I’ve had for years and draped it across the table opposite the main tablecloth. I’m a big fan of layering <3
For a finishing touch, I graced the table with a couple velvet beauties from Love Feast Shop. This table is giving me all the cozy feels with so many wonderful textures.
