Decorating for Fall with Real Pumpkins & Gourds

Fall Thanksgiving TableThank goodness for October! The weather is finally cooling down and we are excited for Fall! Today I’m sharing photos of my dining room table that’s all dressed up for the season. This year I was going for a white and cream look with some more subtle natural fall colors.

I love the idea of using baskets and containers you may already have and filling them with fresh pumpkins and gourds of varying sizes.  You’ll see I made a white pumpkin tower simply by stacking different sized pumpkins.  The flat white pumpkins for perfect for this.  It’s such an easy and elegant fall centerpiece. I  saved some dried hydrangeas from my yard and used them inside coffee mugs. Notice the small pumpkins inside the bowls for a fun Fall detail.

There’s a couple home decor projects I’m reusing here like my hand painted “Give Thanks Always” pallet sign, and this thrifted mirror I’ve turned into a chalkboard.

This white ceramic basket can be placed in the oven and then keeps your rolls warm on the table. That’ll be perfect for Thanksgiving.

This is a sweet little ruffle table runner I sewed last week! I am so proud of it!! I’ll do a separate post later on that soon. It’s made of scrap drop cloth from my outside curtains I made this summer.

White plates are my favorite right now! I love how you can decorate around them for every season and they always have a clean fresh look.
