Simple Fall Tablescape






I wanted a tablescape that implemented mostly natural elements as well as something very simple and no fuss. We hollowed out a naturally white pumpkin for a vase to display my hydrangeas and hollowed out 4 small pumpkins and used them as votive holders. Our little one helped with his precious cute little hands!  It's nothing new but it works for a small get together.

One reason I love using natural elements is that I feel it translates nicer in person.

*Tip

Try using smaller pumpkins for soup bowls.
 

The table setting looks nicer in person. I'm definitely not going to have a career in photography any time soon.:)

  9. So pretty and put together. And I agree with natural elements. I do think they are fun to mess with. Right now I am going straight past fall and halloween table settings and straight into christmas lol. I am usually not a big fall decorating person despite it being my favorite season but Next year I think I will!

    1. I'm not a big fall decorator, either. It is such a gorgeous season and my favorite, too. Except when I'm sick of the the gloom and cold and ready for Summer already! Thanks for the compliment, Melissa.:)

  10. I think it's perfect too - I don't decorate for Fall only Halloween, so I love seeing Fall decorations especially the simple pretty ones!

    1. Thanks, Vel! I really want a mix of grown up and something fun for kids for Halloween this year, so I'm not sure what I will come up with. I'm not a big Fall decorator, either, but this was fun.
