Inexpensive Fall Tablescape and place setting


Sadly, I no longer have a dining room but that hasn’t stopped me from table styling!! It is so fun to throw a tablescape together. I love to shop the house and use inexpensive trinkets like the things you find in the Target One Spot.

The fall table I’ve put together here is an “anything goes!!!”


I mixed gold rimmed crystal wine glasses with copper mule mugs.  The cinderella pumpkins are from Trader Joes. I added in a few fake pumpkins and greenery for the center piece.


That’s lambs ear and a stem of faux greenery I cut and placed around the pumpkins.

For the place settings, I layered my Pottery Barn Emma plates (which btw-is my youngest daughter’s name) with a blue salad plate.  I topped the salad plate off with a tweed pumpkin and copper cookie cutter from Target.



The cookie cutters came in an acorn, pumpkin and maple leaf pattern.


The runner is a folded blanket scarf also purchased at the Target One Spot. I recently painted my kitchen table and chairs in black and white. Probably not for everyone but I love how it refreshed this worn out table and brightened my kitchen. Hope to post a tutorial with the products I used very soon.

Decorating does not have to be expensive. I may make a sign that says this one day 🙂 But it is so true. Snip clippings from your bushes. Think of other uses for things you already have and don’t be afraid to mix patterns and styles. Don’t get me wrong I love a beautifully placed and elegant table. But it’s fun to get creative on a budget.




The candle pictured smells divine. I purchased it from Rachael Rae at BurlapBowDecor. Rachael has a website and an etsy shop that showcase her talents as well as her homemade candles. I hope you’ll pay her a visit!

This one is called pumpkin chai and I love it!
