How to Create Rustic Elegance for your Fall Table

How to Create Rustic Elegance for your Fall Table

Hey Friends! I’m so glad that you are here. I so enjoy our time together.

My heart is so happy! I woke up to yet another beautiful Fall day. If you have spent much time with me, you well know just how giddy I am for anything Fall. Today, I am going to share with you how I created rustic elegance for my Fall Table. Come on, I’ll show you.

I love the Old World feel of this table setting.

Now, this is what I call Fall table decorations. Doesn’t this remind you of a table setting in a pasture in Europe? I hope, so-because that is the look that I was going for. I wanted this beautiful Fall table setting to be elegant, yet rustic.

This pretty Fall flower arrangement was the centerpiece for this Autumn table setting.

You might remember that I showed you how to make this beautiful floral fall arrangement last week on the blog. You can see that post and the video of me putting the arrangement together, here.

I love to gather all of the items for my table decor. It’s half the fun..

These are the items that I gathered from around my house. I love this old and rustic wooden riser that I got at a vintage marketplace. These gold goblets really say “Fall” to me. And, of course, I fit in my cabbage plates anytime that I can. I also used my vintage silverware. Yes, they are vintage now, my husband and I got them for a wedding gift 36 years ago. Does that mean that I am vintage, too? Please don’t answer that.

Please see the video below to see how I created this lattice wall.

Although I was dreaming of Fall and all things Fall-like cooler weather, it was 100 degrees outside on the day that I did this tablescape. I set the table under a tent trying to keep things from melting, me included.

Don’t you just love the fresh produce?

I love using anything from my garden, whether it is flowers, or greenery, or fruit or veggies. It adds so much charm and it doesn’t cost me anything, so French, right?

I used a small wooden vintage table that I have in my barn, it’s so charming. I used my cabbage plates from Bordello Pinheiro, they are one of my favorites. You can get them here. Then I placed a lovely fruited dinner plate on top of the cabbage plate. I couldn’t find the exact plates that I have, but these plates are similar, you can get these plates here. I used a burgundy cloth napkin and tucked it into a brass napkin ring. I love these amber goblets, they look so beautiful for a fall table setting-especially for outdoor dining.

Don’t these brass candlesticks look great with these rust colored candles? They really add to the ambiance of the fall dining table decorations. These brass candlesticks are lovely, as are these. You can get the rust colored candlesticks here.

Doesn’t this make you dream of the European countryside.

Isn’t this bike basket adorable? One of my dreams is to ride a vintage bicycle with a basket of fresh flowers and stop along the roadside in the European countryside and have a picnic. Of course, it would be lovely if the picnic was already set up and I just happened upon it. Beings that I am dreaming, there should be the most delicious food just waiting for me to arrive.

I adore these cross back chairs, I keep them in the barn as well-along with the vintage farm table. I love using the table and chairs for impromptu dinners in the garden. These cross-back chairs look even better after years of use. They are absolutely perfect for that French Country style. You can get the lovely cross-back chairs here.

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.
