fall decor and more!

From now until this day forward, I'll probably be sharing lots of pumpkins, sunflowers, fall leaves, apple recipes and more! Well, until Thanksgiving is over, and then it’ll be on to Christmas. 😉 

Over the last few weeks, I’ve created a few autumn inspired tablescapes, mostly using soft, muted tones, and it’s been so much fun!  

Pumpkin plates are something I collect, and this is the time of year to use them! The fun for me is to find them at a reasonable price and then to mix and match them with everyday table décor. 

Of course, it also helps to have a few of these mini “baby boo” pumpkins on hand to add to the charm of the season. Luckily Trader Joe’s starts carrying them in early September.

Pacific & Rose is a line of table linens I just discovered this month from my friend Elizabeth James.    

She’s the print-blocking queen of textiles, and you’ll be seeing more of these fabulous patterns popping up on my tables in October and November. 

The texture of burlap is a great look for this time of year, as seen in these round, ruffled placematsPlaid throws are another pretty way to add a sense of coziness to the home during fall. 

I really like to use real pumpkins, foliage and flowers in my home. If that’s not an option, in the very least, I like to go outdoors and snip a few interesting branches to add to a vignette. 

The eucalyptus seen on my mantel above was trimmed from my neighbor's tree, who gave me permission to use them for my home. There are so many other pretty options for foliage;  maple, magnolia, olive and birch, to name a few.  

I have a set of eight of these Serena & Lily black and white Riviera chairs, so here you see them in both the breakfast room and the newly cleaned out "sun room". 

It’s comforting for me to use blue in my fall décor, as it’s the prevalent color in my home. I love how a soft blue looks with a hint of tan, soft green and cream. 

Over the past year or two, I’ve picked up a few cute fall pillows when I spot them at a store. This Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice pillow is an outdoor pillow that's currently on my front porch, but I brought it in for this table vignette, because of the colors. 

These next two pillows were found at Home Goods. If you know me, you know Home Goods is my guilty pleasure, not unlike many of you! 

I have some fun news to share... in a couple of weeks, I’m collaborating with Pelican Courtyard, Seaside Gallery and Pacific & Rose to set up a little autumn tea party here in the courtyard.  

And, you may have guessed... I’m in charge of the tablescape. It's gonna be a fun day!

Another event I super excited about attending is the Fall Day of Design at SOCO Design Center in Costa Mesa next Saturday, October 5 from 10 to 4.  

You are also invited to attend thiamazing design event in Orange County! It’s a day of design education and exciting hands-on demos that take a deep look into what’s trending and what’s ahead for design and home interiors.

While I’m here today, I wanted to share some of my "Tablescaping Essentials" with you. I have a whole page on the Amazon website with my favorite picks for setting a beautiful table.

Quite often time is of the essence, and I have last minute projects or events to work on, so I turn to Amazon for one or two day delivery. You’d be surprised at how many amazing items they have to offer! And I'm constantly updating this page with my new favorites. 

You can check it out here, at Tablescaping Essentials.
