Blue and White Fall Tablescape mixed with green apples and orange pumpkins is a fun combination for a casual kitchen!
Welcome everyone to another fall excerpt from our home. If you are new to Our Southern Home, welcome! I've been blogging here since 2012. Since 2012 and well before, it's been hot as all get out in Upstate, SC the month of September. I don't expect that will ever change. So while it's sweltering outside, I enjoy creating a harvest home inside.
I am so excited to be joining the Fall Ideas Tour this week hosted by Angie from Postcards from the Ridge.
This tour is different in that each day has a theme. Be sure to stick around to the end so you can see the schedule. Today I am sharing our kitchen tablescape.
The real deal in terms of pumpkins are just not readily available around here. We are still a couple of weeks out. I stopped in my local Publix tonight to check and they had a few large, traditional orange pumpkins, but not much else.
I'm ok with faux. They have come a long way in recent years.
I adore blue and white and find that it works all year long. I recently picked up this gorgeous blue and white table cloth at Tuesday Morning. I folded it to look more like a wide runner to expose the wood of the table along the top.
August and September are big apple picking months in Hendersonville, NC. We love to take the 50 minute drive for a day trip. Apples are the perfect nod to early fall around here. Of course, these apples are faux. Look pretty real! I've had these apples for years! One of them even has bite marks where one of my son's friends took a bite out of one when they were in 3rd grade. Would you believe that they are now both roommates at Clemson University. I just can't part with these apples.
The blue glasses were a thrift store find in the spring.
This has been a simple tablescape to keep set. Yes, we actually use it. Everything goes in the dishwasher and right back on the table. It actually encourages us to eat at the table and not at the island. The white plates were also thrift store finds.
The antique marble top server was purchased about 20 years ago from an antique store in Chapel Hill, NC. It's one of our favorite pieces. I added just a few faux pumpkins.
This Welcome Fall pillow was a recent DIY project. You can check out the materials here. Below is a video tutorial from a Facebook live.
The kitchen area opens up to the family room.
Leaving the wood exposed on the table also helps to tie in the wood decor pieces on the top of the table.
Over the last couple of years, I find that I am going simpler each year with my seasonal decor. I probably have 3 totes of things that I didn't use this year. I like the simpler.
