The dining room table is the center of attention in our house so the Pinterest pressure was on to create something pin worthy.
I know I am a little late to the fall tour parties, but I blame it on tennis balls. I just finished women’s USTA tennis and my son is in the middle of his senior year and co-captain of his Varsity tennis team. You may see a few tennis balls during the fall dining tour.
A week ago, the dining room looked more like the tableware aisles at Homegoods at the end of the weekend. But, today the table is ready to mingle. Please take a peek at my fall dining room tour (before tennis racquets and sweaty uniforms take over the chaise.
Thankfully, the fall season comforts me with its familiarity and cozy spirit. And, apple and pumpkin scented candles help too.
Our dining room table is a member of our family. I shared the table’s history here. It carries the load when some of us don’t have the energy to drop our keys or lunch bags on the kitchen counter- four feet away.
The dining room is the one room that feels complete. Well, unless I look at the rug or the lack of lighting along the hutch.
When I found this hutch last fall I felt like the room matured overnight. I found it at Pottery Barn and shared the details here.
I purchased the mirrors this past spring here; one at a time over the course of a few weeks.
Cash flow was one reason, but I also wanted to make sure I liked them before I ordered a 2nd.
I love these mirrors. Homegoods has a great selection of mirrors too. But, if you see one, it’s best to snag it.
After spending a few weeks pinning fall tablescapes and front porches I could no longer remember what I owned.
I love white pumpkins against the wood grain table. Oh and concrete.
And, is it just me or did Homegoods have a ton of fun pumpkins this season? Just when I didn’t think I needed (wanted) more pumpkins, Homegoods brings in shades of large green pumpkins and raffia pumpkins?
You all know what pumpkins I am talking about, right?
It’s scary that I remember the price of the large, solid shades of green pumpkins ($24.99), but I can’t remember the book title I am reading.
When in doubt; add a candle. Candles make everything look better when the lights are dimmed.
And simple fall stems mixed with branches are a great way to add a little vertical next to the large windows that overlook the backyard.
I loved this look so much I duplicated this look a few times around the house. When my accessories are all the same height this is a good way to take the eye up.
And, guess where I grabbed these dried grasses? Found them in the line to check out at Homegoods.
I wrapped a glass vase (from my own version of a Homegoods stock room) with twinkle lights.
Are they called twinkle or fairy lights?
Anyway, I wrapped a strand around the glass vase to add a little lighting to the dining room hutch.
