This might be my favorite day of our Farmhouse Holiday Series so far. Everyone created such special tablescapes and I hope you get a moment to visit all of them. I will be linking to each one at the end of this post. If you are just joining us, I am so happy to have you! You can catch up with our series by visiting our Fall Kitchens (and favorite Autumn recipes), and our Fall Family rooms. And here is our schedule if you want to mark your calendars:
Tablescapes are so fun for me. There is something very relaxing about arranging a table. I love all of the layers and textures, and I also love any excuse to pull out my favorite dinnerware and serve ware. My sweet Ella had fun helping me too.
I know it seems almost counter intuitive to set the table and add the centerpiece last, but by doing this you can make sure you fit all of the necessary items on the table and work the candles and decorations around them. I started each of my place settings with some large children’s encyclopedias that I found at a thrift store years ago for 50 cents. I used them as chargers to add interest and fun texture to the table. I layered my plates with these AllModern linen towels. I love using towels in the place of napkins because they are bigger and so pretty layered with plates (They also come in handy having 3 littles under 5). I added small loafs of homemade bread to each place setting just for fun too.
We had a tree die in our yard a couple years ago and I saved part of it with the intention of cutting it up to use it for candlesticks. My sweet hubby cut them for me in various sizes and I drilled the holes for candles. Can’t beat free :).
I had a hard time picking pumpkins at the local farm because they were all so pretty, but these are the ones I came home with. I love their colors and shapes. The white ones came from my garden.
I also threw in a few peaches that I picked up from the local farmer’s market because I thought their color was so beautiful. I love the time of year when peaches are as big as your hand!
I made peasant soup with this AllModern cast iron cocotte and ladle. We love nice warm soups this time of year and I love that they make for delicious leftovers for a couple days. I will be sharing this recipe soon, so stay tuned. It is hearty and delicious.
I had these kraft loaf pans in my stash but I also found them HERE. I didn’t have much time to search so that one has a pretty big quantity and was the only one I could find, but I bet you could find a smaller quantity. I baked my loaves of bread in small loaf pans, transferred them into these and then tied them with some jute that I had on hand. I am sure you could also bake the bread directly in these paper loaf pans if you want to save a step.
I finished off the table with branches I cut from my parents’ trees. I love the way the green sets off the other warm colors on the table.
Do you like creating tablescapes? I hope you enjoyed a little glimpse into my Fall dining room today!
I hope you get a chance to visit these other homes for some beautiful Fall tablescape inspiration. Thank you so much for visiting today!
