Hey Friends!

I so enjoy our time together.

Fall is in the air and that means it’s time to start thinking about outdoor dining with Fall flair!

This year, why not mix things up and create a rustic elegance table setting?

So, gather your supplies and let’s get started!

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.

My heart is so happy!

If you have spent much time with me, you well know just how giddy I am for anything Fall.

I am joining such a great group of talented ladies for a “Celebrate the Holidays-Welcoming Fall” blog hop, hosted by my friend Carol from Blue Sky At Home.

Carol is sharing 5 Ways to Decorate with Fall Foliage.

Aren’t you so excited for Fall?

How Do I arrange Flowers for Fall?

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.

You can see that post and the video of me putting the arrangement together, here.

How Do I Set the Perfect Fall Table?

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

Fall is the time of year when the leaves change color, the weather cools down, and family and friends get together to celebrate.

If you’re looking for a way to add some rustic elegance to your table this year, follow these simple tips!

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 37 years ago.

Does that mean that I am vintage, too? Please don’t answer that.

Whether you’re looking for a centerpiece for your Fall table or just want to add a touch of autumnal elegance, these simple tips will help you create a beautiful rustic display.

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?

Fall is a time of year when people like to cozy up in their homes and spend time with family and friends.

This season is also the perfect opportunity to add some rustic elegance to your table.

By following these simple tips, you can create a beautiful tablescape that will make your guests feel welcome and comfortable.

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.

Then I placed a lovely fruited dinner plate on top of the cabbage plate.

These Spode Turkey Dinner plates are amazing!

I couldn’t find the exact plates that I have, but these Pretty plates are similar.

I used a burgundy cloth napkins and tucked it into a brass napkin ring.

I love these amber glasses, 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.

The brass candlesticks are lovely, as are this pair of candlesticks.

I love these rust colored candles.

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.

Aren’t the cross-back chairs lovely?

We hope you enjoy creating this look for your next gathering!
