Fall Tablescape | Inspiration

Though we’re not hosting any dinner parties or Thanksgiving this year, I had so much fun putting together this fall or Thanksgiving tablescape inspiration! If you’ve been around here for any length of time, you probably know that my favorite colors – for weddings, home decor, my wardrobe, or anything else – are dusty French blue and white with pops of pinks/coral or green. I don’t love reds, oranges, or browns very much, though I adore using a traditional red at Christmastime! For this fall-inspired tablescape design, I wanted it to feel autumnal, warm, inviting, and a mix of timeless yet fresh in design… and without the traditional deep reds and oranges, too themed, or an abundance of pumpkins. I would absolutely use every one of these items to create a fall or Thanksgiving table that’s a little unexpected, versatile, cozy and chic, and just so beautiful and inviting.

  1. flower rattan placemat to add an organic texture, playful layer, and warmth to your place setting
  2. flax striped linen table runner for a subtle yet striking layer that can be used year-round and adds visual interest
  3. golden yellow patterned linen napkins for a warm pop of color that ties in the autumnal palette and adds that perfect dimension of colorful tones
  4. taper candles for a soft glow, warm ambiance, and necessary height on your dinner table
  5. dual toned black and gold flatware for a bold, memorable, and luxurious flatware selection without being too sweet
  6. tortoise shell glassware for a festive, fun touch in a timeless design and perfectly autumnal palette
  7. etched wine glasses to add a subtle, elegant shine to enhance your place setting
  8. gold leaf napkin rings for a cohesively autumnal and chic addition
  9. natural linen tablecloth in a subtle vanilla shade to complement your place settings and let them shine
  10. speckled stoneware dinner plate for an artisanal, earthy addition that juxtaposes the colorful linen napkin
  11. speckled stoneware salad plate that matches the dinner plate and adds more depth and dimension to your place setting
  12. marble and wood salt and pepper cellar to cohesively tie the warm autumnal tones and textures together with a special touch

I’m a sucker for collecting unique glassware and tableware, and those tortoiseshell glasses and etched, gold-rimmed wine glasses are calling my name! I also love that the yellow patterned napkins could be used throughout the year (along with most everything here, if you just switch out some details to rework the design!). Which items do you love the most, and how are you decorating for Thanksgiving this year?!

PS: here’s how we decorated for Thanksgiving last year!

Rose Gold + Copper Love

It seems like rose gold + copper are taking the design world by storm this season! All gold everything has been the rage for the last few years, and I have loved that so much (I think that’s apparent!). But now it seems like copper and rose gold are everywhere, and I’m not mad about it. These tones are so beautiful, and I am loving the shift away from all gold. At the moment, rose gold and copper still feel really refreshing and refined, and wedding details, furniture, home decor, and fashion have all shifted and are majorly focusing on the newest trend. I’ve been incorporating some copper and rose gold details into my new home, as well, though I still adore my beloved gold!

How do you feel about rose gold and copper?! Which of these design picks is your favorite? I’m especially loving the two pairs of rose gold flats and the flatware!

Sneak Peek: My New Home


Ahh! It’s hard to put into words how excited I am to have my own space!! I’m really, really thankful for my new home in Raleigh for a plethora of reasons, and I simply love it already. Some of the best features of my apartment are its vaulted ceilings, abundance of natural light and windows, a large balcony, a fabulous garden bathtub, an open floor plan, plenty of space and storage, a pool and gym, my very own bathroom, and my own guestroom and office!!! Yes, it’s pretty darn marvelous in every way.

I can’t wait to share more soon, but here are a few small sneak peeks of the space – my bar cart area, my office and desk, and my guest bed. Suffice it to say that I love it! It’s so fun to decorate exactly how I want to. Really, though, I want my home to be a space that is inviting, comfortable, welcoming, and relaxing for myself and for friends and family. Hospitality is something that I’m passionate about, and I want to have an inspiring, lovely, and wholly hospitable and welcoming home. Guests, friends, and family are always welcome with open arms!
