A Fall Table...

Warning: This is a picture heavy post... perhaps I went a little overboard with my little impromptu shoot today, but I just loved how everything turned out! I typically don't decorate for the season's other than Christmas, but I have just been so anxious for Christmas this year, that I felt I needed to go ahead and give into the fall decorating this year or I was going to explode! I need to decorate something!!!

I decided to do a fall table scape in neutral colors, its simple, classic and chic and most of all it's affordable, most everything I had on hand except for the pumpkins...

I decided to keep it very simple and not have silverware and glasess on the table... I don't want to spend everyday, wiping and dusting, and I didn't want it to get to cluttery.

I got my pumpkins and gords at Hobby Lobby, I decided to go with artificial, that way I could use them each year and just add to as I go. It's hard for me to purchase items I know are just going to rot, and then be thrown away.


I got this adorable little cupcake stand at Hobby Lobby too, it was 50% off so I decided to splurge, I'm a sucker for anything gold and dots. Polka dots are just so underestimated, don't you think, I mean they're fun, playful, classic and when gold, super chic. I also purchased those two little white vases from the thrift store and sprayed them white.

Believe it or not, aside from the burlap chargers {Hobby Lobby} the dishes and silver trays are from the dollar store. Yup, super cheap! You can't beat a dollar...  I sprayed and glittered the pears gold for a nice little touch.

Pumpkins and cupcakes... who would of thought it....

I purchased the wood slices from.. you guessed it, Hobby Lobby again... I didn't have any of our cut down tree trunks that were wide enough.  I purchased the candle holders they are sitting on earlier in the year and chalk painted them in ASCP Paris Grey.

So what do you think? I think it's a big win.. myself!  And, to think I almost didn't do it, I wish I had been doing this all along now, it does make a difference and gives you a break from your everyday decor.  Most everything here was from the dollar store, Hobby Lobby and the thrift store. So you can have a gorgeous table for not that much money.

Happy Fall Ya'll....
