How to Create a Beautiful Lakeside Fall Table Setting

How to Create a Beautiful Lakeside Fall Table Setting

Hey Friends!

Welcome! I’m so glad that you are her. I always enjoy our time together. I am really enjoying the cooler weather of Autumn, aren’t you? However, there is nothing more glorious than a beautiful Fall day in November-especially if you get to dine with family and friends lakeside. Today, I am going to show you How to Create a Beautiful Lakeside Fall Table Setting. Come on, I’ll show you.

I so wish that you were here to join me.

Doesn’t this look lovely? I love that the day was so beautiful on the lake. It was just so much fun putting together this fall table setting. Hopefully, you will get some great ideas to use for dining table decor.

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 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.

Beautiful interiors don’t have to come with an outrageous price tag. My style is what I like to call Vintage French Farmhouse, 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.
