Colorful Fall Tablescape Home Tour: Part 2
Welcome back. If you were here for the tour on Friday, I’m so happy to see you again. I have the table set and would love to have you join me for some good food and great conversation. Today we are going to be sharing part 2 of the Colorful Fall Tablescape Home Tour.
If you’re new around here, I built my own farmhouse table last year and love the rustic look and feel. I scoured Craig’s List until I found chairs that I love. The chairs came with a table that was painted white, but I quickly turned around and sold it on Craig’s List. I don’t have any interest in keeping chairs and tables as a set. (Throw rotten tomatoes at me, go ahead.) I tend to like the collected and eclectic look. Which explains the nailhead trim head chairs I purchased at World Market (see below for source links.)
The pedestal fruit bowl used to be dark walnut, but it had fallen out of favor in my decorating so I added two coats of chalk paint and distressed it. Now I love it again!
The place settings were left simple with a burlap ribbon around the plates and a mini pumpkin on top.
I used some alstroemeria flowers in little votive jars because I knew they last longer than other flowers. Unfortunately the peach colored flowers already dropped their pedals but the yellow ones are holding strong.
A few years ago I temporarily taped antique sheet music into the back of the buffet hutch. It’s funny how temporary sometimes becomes more permanent. I added the fake white gourd and pumpkin to the shelves. Don’t mind those two pinecones peeking out from the top shelf. I guess I couldn’t see them when I was decorating. Oops.

Your tablescape is fabulous. It’s so inviting. It speaks… ‘come over to my house, and eat dinner with us.” I’ll be there soon!
Really like the way you draped placemats over edge of table; looks great!
The flowers, the pumpkins, the plate, everything is just so perfect!
Love the table setting. Just makes you want to sit down and have a meal. Great job.
