Setting a Pretty Fall Table

Posted by on Oct 30, 2014 in dining room, fall | 8 comments

Could someone please tell me what happened to October?!

It seems that I blinked and I missed it.

But I am seriously glad that November will be here tomorrow.

I can’t wait to host Thanksgiving dinner!

And I’m already playing around with the table a bit.

I’m thinking something natural…and full of dried hydrangea…and acorns…and leaves…with a touch of gold.

Here is one idea for setting a pretty fall table.

I started with my centerpiece.

A giant concrete urn filled with some of my dried hydrangea on top of my burlap table runner.

I’ve had these blooms for a couple of years.

They started off a pale green but have turned to this beautiful golden color over the years.

I scattered some fake acorns around to lend to the natural feel.

And I’m loving the wooden placemats that I made earlier this year.

To finish the table off, I gathered leaves and wrote everyones name with a gold Sharpie.

And now I guess I need to hang on for the ride that November has to offer…

…because I have a feeling that the next time I blink…

…it will be December!

Life to the full!
