Fall Tablescape Decorating Ideas

Fall Tablescape Decorating Ideas

I hosted an early Friendsgiving at our farm house just so I had an excuse to set the table early. I am constantly collecting napkins, placemats, votives, etc. so that I always have items to play with. This year I did something a little different and I decided not to do fresh flowers. I love fresh flowers, but they can be expensive and they die so quickly!! I found these dried pieces at my local flower market and I instantly fell in love. I will be able to use them from season to season in different ways, and the cost is guilt free (my husband will be so proud ;). The new piece I added this year was by gauze table runner. The company I just bought this from just came out with a loooong tablecloth that I will be purchasing ASAP. It can be difficult to find long pieces like that so no need to look any further. I typically never use actual candles one my table outdoor because of the light breeze we get up on the hill. I optimistically tried it again, but the candlewax was dripping and the flames were going out. Oh well, at least it looked pretty for the pictures, haha.
