Fall is officially here, and I could not be more excited. It’s probably my favorite time of the year, since in Louisiana, we don’t really have much of a winter. I love everything about fall: sweater weather, coats, fun boots and shoes you normally don’t wear when it’s 90 degrees outside, gumbo, football and of course, cooler weather! Pumpkins and beautiful colors just make me squeal with excitement. Autumn just really brightens my mood, and I can’t help but smile when I think about all of the things I associate with the season.
I love decorating for the season and special holidays. It’s such a fun way to use your creativity to make something your own, and that’s just what I did for our formal dining room tablescape.
Just a few pumpkins really make it look like fall, and I could easily remove them and add something new for my Christmas decor, which is a huge plus!
I love candles and how they can really add to a room. I have quite an assortment of candles on this table, but it’s not too overdone.
Glitter is always a must in any holiday decor in our house. I just can’t decorate without it. Sure, it makes a mess, but the sparkles and shine make up for it any day. 😉 Glitter = happiness
These feather placemats are something I made myself last year, and it was super easy. Just purchase your own feathers, and glue them to something round or square depending on which shape you’d like for your placemat. The dishes were my late grandmother’s, and I’m honored to be able to use them this year.
The leaves in the center of the table are actually just picks I purchased during Christmas the last few years but never used. I feel like it really contributes to the whole look. All of the small pumpkins came from Hobby Lobby, and the two larger end pumpkins are from Michaels.
I purchased the tall silver candle sticks a while back from Ross stores, and I love the height they add to the whole look of the table.
This year, I’m hoping we are able to celebrate Thanksgiving at home and can eat at our formal dining table because it’s just too pretty to not enjoy over a delicious meal while giving thanks for all of our many, many blessings.
