Pumpkin & Gingham Fall Tablescape

This is one of my favorite times a year around here because this is one of those times when my friends and I get together to share great tablescape ideas!! This time around it’s Fall Tablescapes. I know, I know, it might be a tad early, but in blogland that’s just how it goes. After all, if you are planning ahead for a fall gathering, now would be a good time to be gathering some inspiration…am I right??

Blue and White Spring Tablescape

If you’ve been around here for even a little while then you know I love navy! So, this table might be my favorite!! I’ll be honest, I was struggling coming up with inspiration. I had been to Hobby Lobby, Target, TJMaxx, Micheals, searching for some sort of spring inspiration to hit me, but it just wasn’t. I finally remembered I had this silver trophy vase I had bought at Vintage Market Days last year that I have been dying to use. That was a start at least. I opened my craft storage closet looking for fabric. I had actually purchased some light purple daises while at Walmart the day before. So, I started to look at my lavender fabric stash. Then I spotted the navy gingham I had left over from the euro shams I made for our master bedroom. And then the creative wheel finally started to turn! If I had gone the lavender route, I would have had to make 3 more napkins, but navy – I had plenty of those! Win, win! (and besides I went the lavender route last year haha)

I spent last week decking the halls around here and I’m excited to share our mantel with you today! I decided to keep it simple this year. I’m really liking the less is more approach to decor these days. Keeps the space a little quieter.
