There are a million reasons to enjoy the fall season, but two of my favorites are fall decorating and fall home tours. I think it’s because I find it easier to decorate with a theme or goal in mind and the holidays are ripe with potential. Today I am bringing you a simple fall table setting made extra trendy with the addition of buffalo check. AND I have some fall home tours to share! All week my friends are rolling out new inspiration: Mantels, tables, DIY crafts, free printables and porch decor.
For our simple fall table, I used the chalkboard placemats I made a while back (click the link for the tutorial on how to make your own!). These placemats are the best because you can dress them up for the latest trend and wipe them clean for the next one that rolls around! I used white and light orange chalk to decorate them in a buffalo check type pattern. Just break fresh chalk into the width you want your tripes and rub the side on the chalkboard for fat stripes!
Since we eat at the dinner table almost every night I leave chargers out so the table always looks set and we just take our plates on and off the table for each meal. These chargers were from the dollar store!
I am loving the pops of gold and metallics I’m seeing everywhere this year for fall and decided to use my cheery gold napkins. I dragged out all the pumpkins, acorns and gourds I’ve made and collected over the years for the most simple centerpiece!
This long basket tray was another DIY I made a while back that has come in so handy for decorating tables, mantels and tables. (tutorial here)
What colors are you feeling for fall? I love to hear what everyone else is doing! Like I said, it’s one of my favorite things about the fall season. Please be sure to gather some extra inspiration from my talented friends below before you go!
