This eye-catching fall inspired dining room tablescape can be a perfect seasonal masterpiece for your home, and screams Harvest.
Brimming with inspiration I found on Instagram, I’ve created an eye-catching Fall Inspired Tablescape. Instagram is dangerous. Before becoming a blogger, I did little if anything on Instagram. Now, I post and browse others posts throughout the day, so much so that I had to place an automatic reminder to help limit my time. Instagram is inspiration dangerous. From this however, evolved this eye-catching fall inspired tablescape, and I am so glad it did because I'm loving it.
Decorating for any season can become expensive if you allow yourself to wild. I have spent a lot of time browsing the aisles of the craft and hobby stores. I’ve never been one to simply look at an object and “see” something it could be by adding pipe cleaners and felt leaves and some glitter. I’m the type who needs to see it manifested to 'get it.' I tend to lean toward natural and/or natural-looking elements.
I’m sharing this fall inspired dining room tablescape I created. I was recently invited to participate in a seasonal tablescape feature with some other bloggers, this being my first. I’m pleased with how this has turned out, largely because the artificial nuts and fruits and berry garland look entirely realistic. It was a gamble ordering all online, as you never know what you will end up receiving. Every one of the products shown are from Amazon. I am so pleased with how realistic they appear, that I have to say I’d order from this same manufacturer again, given the quality and visuals are better than much of what was available at my local hobby store. That, and at far more reasonable prices…
A Gorgeous Table Runner for The Base
This well made table runner comes in eleven sizes, seven colors, and boasts matching placemats and napkins if you want to go the extra mile. I selected the heather gray, and purposely ordered shorter than the 70” table it’s displayed on. Usually I prefer a slight overhang, however, I have pets in the house, so I knew where trouble would come from if I allowed overhang! This piece I absolutely love. It’s a simple design but it looks very delicate. I think I loved it because of the ‘eyelet’ stitching. The heather gray color pairs well with purples and reds and browns.
Pumpkin Pip Berry Garland to Build Height
Four feet of natural color and texture, and better yet, it’s all bendable wire. I spent about 10 minutes manipulating the branches of this beautiful berry garland and curling the end to appear pretty. I believe it looks fantastic with the runner. The berries are a deep cranberry orange. Upon first sight, it reminded me of bittersweet.
Flameless Wax Candles Which Provide Warmth to The Display
No joke – these flameless wax candles have made me a convert. Right down to a flicker and what appears to be a dancing “flame,” these battery-operated devices are realistic and sooooo much safer. They come with a remote so once your pièce de ré·sis·tance is complete, you won’t have to pluck a candle out in order to turn it on or off. The remote even sports a timer which is super convenient. They will last the life of your party and then some.
Realistic Faux Apples to Echo the Harvest
Honestly, these faux apples look good enough to eat. They remind me of honey crisps and are entirely realistic. The box contained six apples, each individually wrapped. They may be ordered in either red or green. The stems aren’t cheap plastic, rather some sort of paper over a sturdy base. They absolutely scream fall.
Acorns Resonate the Importance of Everything In the Cornucopia
Nostalgic because I was channeling the grammar school I attended the day of the purchase, The Oak Street School. What I love about these acorns is that it’s a 50 piece set. That means they could be scattered as I’ve done here or piled in a bowl for decoration. These might be my favs from the entire order.
I hope this post stirs the imagination in YOU to create a seasonal masterpiece, whether an eye-catching fall inspired tablescape such as this, or a bountiful sideboard Cornucopia. I am having trouble NOT admiring it, so I’ve moved my laptop operation into the dining room just so I can look up and stare!
