Blue and White Fall Tablescape

Thanks for sharing!

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.

  1. I am loving all the non-traditional colors being used for Fall! Your tablescape is so lovely with the fruit and using blue! I love your kitchen, it is just beautiful!

  2. I still love the pink flower door basket when I open your blog. It makes me happy ! I never see “Hi” when I am out shopping for signs to put in my wreaths.

  3. Blue and white are classics and I love they way they look against the green accents and in your gorgeous, gorgeous kitchen!! I was laughing at your apple story. I totally get it! My kids and their friends used to eat my real fruit displays all the time, so I finally bought fake. Now no one eats it, but they juggle it instead. Or should I say, practice juggling…dents, scratches, you name it, but all those marks come with a ton of giggly memories.

  4. I would have bit into those apples too, they look so real! Love them displayed in a wooden dough bowl. Clever idea of folding a tablecloth into a runner (might steal that one for Thanksgiving). Your home looks so inviting!

  5. I love your blue willow dishes for fall. And those apples look so realistic that I would have probably taken a bite out one of them too, lol. Your home looks classic and beautiful, as always. So glad you were able to join the tour.

  6. I love the mixture of color and texture Christy. And as I learned two years ago, orange and blue are complimentary on the color wheel, but you probably know that. I needed to know how to go with a blue sun room ceiling and log siding that had aged. Once I knew they worked together it was easy to pull the little cedar porch together and quit fighting it.

  7. I don’t think I’ve ever seen your kitchen/dining area before. The wooden ceiling is gorgeous! Oh, and the tablescape is pretty darn cute too, but I just can’t quit looking at your ceiling!

  8. Your home is so cozy and welcoming! I like your use of apples, I think they are very fall’y!
    We were picking apples in Hendersonville on Sunday! James and I are going back in a couple weeks for the weekend to celebrate our anniversary.

  9. Hey there fellow North Carolinian! I’m in Wilmington and share your struggles at finding ‘real’ pumpkins now. But lucky for you that you have access to all the apples!

    Your table is lovely and welcoming all decked out in it’s blue and white! Truly, you can never go wrong with those two colors!

    And brilliant ‘runner’ idea…gonna tuck that one away!

    Your home is gorgeous! Thanks for opening it up and sharing all your fantastic ideas.



  10. Blue and white always melts my heart. And I totally love it combined with the apples. The chartruse apples are perfect! Your setting and kitchen is beautiful! We shouldl convene post blog hop giggles and goodies around the table. LOL… I so wish! Happy Fall….

  11. I love this table setting. Blue is my favorite color and use it through out my house. And the simple setting makes the blue and green pop. Thank you!

  12. Christy I had to laugh about your son’s friend biting the apple. How cute and how time flies. I love that they’re still close. That proves they look real.

    Love the tablecloth turned runner. I do the same in my dining room.

    I’ve gone more natural this fall and I love it. We have not many pumpkins up here yet either. I was able to find baby boos this past weekend and was thrilled. Added them in some places.

    Always look forward to tours.


  13. Christy your fall table is warm and inviting. Blue and green are my favorite colors and using any natural such as fruits or things from the garden always looks great in my opinion. I have a set of red transferware dishes that come out at Christmas but I just might have to start collecting some blue ones. Happy Fall!

  14. Beautiful, Christy! Blue and white dishes and decor are perfect to use in any season. I love your idea of folding a tablecloth to look like a runner. Your new tablecloth looks great on your table and coordinates perfectly with your blue and white dishes. I also enjoyed seeing your kitchen. I’m sure I saw pictures of it in the past, but today’s pictures were views that weren’t familiar with me. I love all of the wood in your kitchen including the ceiling. It’s always a pleasure to visit your home and see how you’ve decorated for the season.

I love hearing from you!
