For this year’s tablescape we didn’t want to do the typical orange and red fall color. While we like the colors, we just wanted to keep things simple and neutral. But while driving to an auction to pick up our newest furniture piece we came up with a great idea of what we wanted to do! We have this blue paint that is not too bright, yet not super dark. It is the perfect what we describe as “dusky”. So we decided that along with our neutrals we would incorporate our favorite blue into our table too!
We created a couple easy DIY projects just for our tablescape to help us add that fun “pop” of blue into our decor! (Watch for these DIY posts later!) The first DIY item we created was that fabulous grain sack stripe runner. It just took a little measuring and taping – very easy.
The second DIY item was the little leaves we have scattered around! They were cut out of felt and then dip dyed with the same color blue! How neat is that?! That idea just popped into Vicki’s head while we were brainstorming!
Not only did we have the leaves scattered around the center, but we attached two together, added some string, and made a simple napkin ring to go over our beige napkins. It only took a little bit of hot glue and then they match the rest of the table.
Then for the topper of our DIY items – we painted some cheap chargers (again with that same beautiful blue) to reflect our own style. Our blue paint was chalk paint so it covered the chargers really well.
The most time-consuming part of these DIY projects was just waiting for the paint to dry!
To create our tablescape, we first wanted to decide on the centerpiece. A great centerpiece really makes the table. We like to go with a little bit of height, but not above a person’s face because we first and foremost like to see the other people around the table! So we decided to use Kristen’s dough bowl and put pumpkins and leaves all around and in it.
We went with different textures for around the table, like ceramic, wood, canvas, felt, and lace. Our favorite candlesticks also made the cut for our tablescape! They are one of our favorite items to use in decor. Pretty much the perfect rustic and neutral item you can use anywhere!
And how simple was that to create?! All of the decor were items we had on hand and if we didn’t have them – we made them!
