Hi! I’m Renae. I am so glad to meet you. Beautiful interiors don’t have to come with an outrageous price tag. I love mixing decorating styles, especially opposites like the glitz of a chandelier dripping in crystals with a chair upholstered in worn aged leather. Refined, yet not too formal-but, livable, elegant traditional design, adding warmth and vintage elements.  The joy comes from the journey of collecting your home interiors over years-instead of all new, right now.  I love to shop vintage marketplaces and estate sales.  I hope that you will come along with me as I meander along this path with you- sharing how to create a home that feels like an extension of who you are and beautifully entertaining those you love with gorgeous tablescapes and delicious recipes.

Fall is officially here, and that means sweaters, boots and sweaters. If you’re looking for some inspiration to create a beautiful fall table setting, look no further.

I’ve put together a few ideas to help get you started. So grab your favorite pumpkin spice latte and let’s get creative!

I moved my vintage wood picnic table with lots of chippy paint onto the dock.

I started my table setting by using this plaid throw blanket as my tablecloth, I love all of the fall colors in it. It reminds me of fall leaves.

You can get a plaid throw blanket here, here, here, here and here. I got so giddy when I saw all of the options for a plaid throw blanket, that I got a bit excited and couldn’t stop.

Throw blankets aren’t just for cuddling in front of a fire on a chilly day. They are also perfect to wrap up in for lakeside dining.

Next, I used my woven grass placemats- you can get some here, here and here.

I used a large brass lantern with a pumpkin and some greenery in it, for some height and interest. I put it along one end of the table so that we could still see each other.

Then, I nestled two grapevine pumpkins (and here is another grapevine pumpkin) at the base of the lantern. These pumpkins would be perfect for your Thanksgiving table decor.

I layered a wooden charger onto the woven grass placemat, then I used my sweet dishware with fluer de lis on it (these are my favorite dishes that I use at the lake house).

I used a folded linen cloth napkin and placed it on top of the plates. I tied my silverware with this gorgeous forest green velvet ribbon.

I hope you’ve found some inspiration in this post to create your own fall table setting.

Be sure to share pictures of your creations with me.

I adore this ribbon on the silverware-it gives this table setting a classic and luxurious feel.

Isn’t this glassware so pretty?

I actually have it in four different styles- the goblet, the 6 ounce glass, the 11.5 ounce glass and the 16 ounce glass.

I love the design on them. They look like they are vintage glasses from France.

They come in other colors as well.

I topped it all off with some faux fruit, a wicker candle basket (this one isn’t exactly like mine, but it is similar) and some greenery. I sure wish that you were here to join me. Maybe next time.

That’s it! I sure hope that you liked this post. I would love it if you would Pin It.
