It is finally fall and I am here for it! We have been transitioning my studio and in the middle of a HUGE purge! I mean HUGE, like getting rid of a very large portion of my belongings. So with the move and the purge there have been growing piles on my dining room table and absolutely no dining happening. At one point you couldn't even get to the actual table! Don't judge...I have lots of crap and I am dealing with it.
While the purge isn't done it is no longer in my dining room which means I can finally bring out the fall decor! Keeping in mind that I want to keep my home a bit more minimal I resisted the urge to buy all new things and put a million layers on layers on layers.
I loved this process very much. It was so much fun to be back decorating my home. The only thing I bought for this was the chargers, placemats and the acorns. All items were 40% off or more so it cost me very little. It is a fun challenge to use items we already have.
I love having a table with different place settings. I ended up with two place settings on this table but you could do all the same or even making all different but coordinating.
I also kept the middle of my table sparse because I plan to have a dinner party in the next few weeks and want to leave space for actual food to go on the table.
I will be honest. The gold acorns are my favorite detail to this table. I am debating going back and buying four more because I would love one at every seat. I keep telling myself.."Keep it simple. Keep it simple."
Like I said, most of this is old so these links are to similar items.
I am off to get my kiddos and cook a big ole pot of chili for dinner tonight. Can I tell you a secret before I go? I feel like I need to make this confession so we can be real friends. While I am the most basic girl ever when it comes to fall, I have never, and I mean never, had a pumpkin spice latte or seen the movie Hocus Pocus!
I know, I know. Crazy! I promise I am as big of a fan of fall as you, even without having done these two things. Ha. I have them on my "to do" list for fall, so don't worry. Can we still be friends? I sure hope so. What is your favorite fall "thing"? A movie, a pumpkin patch tradition, a certain flower, etc.?
