As the new school year begins, thoughts always turn to fall. Cozy spaces, fall colors, mums and pumpkins these are the things that make us smile!  As we begin to ready our homes for the season, many of us have holiday gatherings to plan. With that in mind, we thought we’d put together a few table-scapes to inspire you as you prepare for family and friends.

This table was put together with many things I already had, and bet you do too. Using two runners along with some placemats and chargers, we set the table with fall colors. We picked up these great candle holders to compliment theb pumpkin centerpiece, which  was made using die cut letters on a foam pumpkin along with fresh mums and sunflowers.

This one was so fun to create! Created on a rustic farm table, we started with fabric and tablecloths to create the foundation. We added apothecary jars layered with Halloween candy, which is a fun and simple centerpiece to make.
This is also perfect to do with children, and there are so many Halloween candy options to choose from. We filled in with a few additional Halloween items to complete the table. The Halloween table-scape was photographed at one of the beautiful homes on this year’s “Tour of Historic Homes” on December 6, 2014

This table is my favorite because I love china, crystal, and shiny things! We were so fortunate to be able to create this table and our fall table at Antiques on 231. Using items found in the store, we created this beautiful, formal look. Notice that we mixed different patterns of china and crystal. The centerpiece was made using fresh flowers and artichokes from Kroger, along with some ceramic pumpkins and acorns. 

Many thanks to Jackie Chitwood and Teresa Lester of Antiques on 231 for allowing us to use their beautiful space and items to create the fall and Halloween tables. Please visit the store and help celebrate their one year anniversary during the month of September!
