Fall Dining Room Table

Fall Dining Room Table Decor and Inspiration

Happy November! :) This past Monday some sweet friends came over for lunch, chit chat, and some much-needed girl time. To make the day special for us, I thought it’d be nice to warm up our dining room with some fun fall decorations and elegant place settings.

The dining room is the first thing you see as you enter our home. We spend lots of time fellowshipping around the table with friends and family, so I wanted this space to be beautiful and welcoming with cheerful seasonal touches. But I also wanted it to be low-maintenance and functional. Nothing too formal or fancy! :)

I will be the first to confess that I do not have the decorating gene at all. Home decor is just not my love language! :) I frequently agonize over what to buy and how to arrange things. Since I didn’t want to have to completely redo this space with every holiday, (and to spare myself future torture) I paired classic neutral pieces that will stay throughout the year with a few pops of color that can easily be changed out by season.

These small decor changes made a big impact on the room, and now I can swap out a few seasonal pieces as an inexpensive way to add instant fresh style.

If you are decorating-challenged like me, you can copy this simple formula to create your own perfect table setting. :)

I started out with three neutral vases as my centerpiece, candles on each side, and matching seasonal elements for each end of the table.

The candles and vases will stay, while the pumpkins and fall foliage will be swapped out by season.

More ideas: The vases could be replaced with hurricanes to display candles or for holding seasonal fruit. The candles could be swapped out for a seasonal color.

I then picked out neutral placemats, chargers, table runners, and napkin rings that will stay year-round…

And added a pop of seasonal flair with the orange napkins that can easily be swapped out for any color.
