A Burnt Orange & Berry Fall Tablescape

The air is crisp and my Fall table is set! One of my favorite rooms to spiff up each season is the dining room. One reason is because it got a complete overhaul last Fall for the One Room Challenge, so it’s pretty much the only space that I’ve been able to deck out from floor to ceiling with fixtures, furniture and finishes of my choosing. The second reason is because… bar carts! Today I’m sharing my Burnt Orange and Berry Fall Tablescape that all started with $.70 placemats. Yep – inspiration struck in the clearance aisle! You’ll also get quite a few peeks at my recently styled Fall bar cart with a super simplistic approach. More on that to come! Continue reading

How To Create a Simple, Casual Fall Tablescape

Hi, friends! I’m absolutely loving the coolish fall temps we’ve had in Chicagoland over the last few days. I think I’m even going to turn the fireplace on tonight [one of my very favorite things to do now through March]! I hope you enjoyed peeking inside our home last week when I shared my fall home tour on Friday. The amount of work that goes into getting the house ready to be photographed is all worth it when it’s over because then house is fully ready to enjoy as a family and host and entertain in with friends!

Today, I’m sharing a few more shots of the tablescape you saw in the fall tour and a few tips for how to create a simple, casual Fall tablescape…one that has a warm and welcoming Fall vibe to it! My table is full of texture, patterns and a mix of metals — all of which ring pretty true to my style. Don’t you agree?! Continue reading

How to Set A Simple Summer Table

Hey guys! It’s been a little while, huh? I hope you all had a wonderful long fourth of July weekend. We are back home and I’m getting back to business on the blog! Today, I’m going to share my tips for how to set a simple Summer Table. Yes, creating a lovely table – the easy way! I adore a beautifully embellished table and an ornate place setting, but let’s be real. There just isn’t time for all the frills and fuss! I mean, creating a super fancy tablescape for each holiday or change of the season would be waaaay too much work. It’s a wonderful thought, but just not realistic, especially for the stage of life I’m currently in. #littleonesarewildones  Continue reading
