Dressing You Home for Fall | Oak Ridge Revival

Fall is my favorite time of the year.  I love everything about it - the leaves turning, the cooler temperatures, Friday night football games, sweaters, boots and of course, pumpkins.

Normally, I'm not a "theme table setting" kind of gal.  
However, I was so inspired by beautiful fall foliage that I just had to bring some indoors.
I clipped a few things from my yard and gathered other items from around my house. 
Last year when a local fabric store was going out of business, 
I stocked up on fabric samples.
These buffalo check samples are some of my favorites. 
They also make perfect place mats!

I mixed some thrifted finds, like the old brown medicine bottles and the gold pumpkins, 
with a few treasures I had on hand.  
Like this lantern turned glass cloche and the gorgeous wooden vase 
carved by my sister-in-law's talented father. 
I love all the texture at the table now.  
The woven chairs, the wool covered wing backs, 
the flannel place mats and the fall foliage make for a cozy setting. 


You can read more about this ever evolving room here, here and here.  




I tucked the silverware into the cloth napkins, tied them with twine and added a maple leaf. 

I added a wooden tag with each of our initials to the mason jars.
Now all that is left to do is prepare a delicious fall feast.  
I'm thinking maybe soup, warm bread and a pumpkin pie.

I am so stealing the buffalo check placemats from you Andrea!  I LOVE your table!  Simple and beautiful!

Andrea's home lends itself so wall to fall, I love the neutral colors with the pop of red from the couch in this room, and the tablescape is so pretty!!!
