Hey there friends!! Have you started decorating for fall yet this year?? I’ve started easing in a few things here and there. Since the temperatures are still pretty warm here, I just can’t jump all in…yet. HA! I knew I wanted to create a fall tablescape for y’all, because it’s honestly one of my favorite things to do, and y’all seem to like it as well. I hand in mind some things I had on hand I wanted to use and then I saw these cute chargers at Dollar Tree and the ideas started flowing!! Here’s where I started.
It’s been a while since I shared a tablescape with y’all!! I found some table linens in a closet not too long ago that I had completely forgotten buying! Ugh! Do you ever do that? I purchased them last year on clearance at Target. They are so cute and summery! I just had to pull together a table for you guys!
Happy February friends! It’s the month of love, but it’s also my birthday month! 😀 I haven’t done any Valentine’s decorating this year. Not sure why, just haven’t really felt like it. Haha! But, as I was moving things around in the kids rooms this weekend I found these tea towels that I bought from IKEA a while back and decided that they would make adorable Valentine’s napkins. Did you know tea towels = napkins?? Ha! Well, I think these tea towels are a little on the small side so I think they will work just fine! Maybe a little big but fine. 🙂
If you’ve been around here for any amount of time you know how much I love to put together a tablescape!! I used to labor over them for hours. But, now that I’ve done several, they take me no time at all. The planning and idea process takes a while, sometimes more than a while if I can’t find any inspiration. But, once inspiration strikes and I gather all the things, it comes together in a flash. This time was no different!! I had a couple of different ideas swimming around but I LOVE the one I landed on because it just looks so darn cute! I am also joining my blogging friends again for a tablescape blog hop, so be sure to check out the links at the bottom of this post!!
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)
