Neutral Farmhouse Fall Table – Our First Fall Table at This House!

Here’s our neutral farmhouse fall table, our first at this house! Plus there are ten more fall tables from my friends too!

Hello! Welcome to our Neutral Farmhouse Fall Table post! If you’re stopping here from the lovely Shayna’s (The Wood Grain Cottage) or any of the other lovely fall table tours, weren’t they just lovely?! So many inspiring fall table ideas!

When I first started blogging, I couldn’t set a pretty table to save my life. Seriously. Maybe it was a lack of props. But I think it had more to do with a lack of experience. Now I LOVE to get out my dishes and chargers and flatware and all the other goodies to create a tablescape just for fun.

This fall heading into the Holiday season, there will be plenty of opportunities for you and I to put together welcoming tables for our friends and families. Here’s to the first of a beautiful season!

Neutral Farmhouse Fall Table

To set a table of any kind, you want to start with the centerpiece. In this case I’ve woven three garlands of fake leaves, gourds, pine cones and berries together and then interspersed various sprigs of faux berries and other greenery. I added fake antlers, feathers, mini pumpkin candles and, of course, our set of turned wood candlesticks. The centerpiece is a little more full in the middle and then it tapers off before it gets to the ends of the table to leave room for place settings.

For each place, I’ve used some scrolling chargers that my husband, Dean, bought me from Pier 1. Then I layered one of our white dinner plates from Birch Lane/Wayfair and a light green salad plate that I found at Homesense at Easter a few years ago. Topping each setting is a simple linen napkin in ivory in a beaded napkin ring.

The fun part of each place setting is actually the gold-toned flatware. Would you believe it’s plastic?! I know. Not overly classy, but perfectly acceptable in photos and for a large family gathering! I found them at Michaels of all places this fall.

My aha moment!

I found my style and was able to bring our small space together for our family of 8! My aha moment was when you talked about undertones! That was the moment when I could bring everything together.

Falling in love with our home again

My ah-ha moment was when I realized I was going about things all the wrong way. I loved the house but it didn't feel like home. BUT now because of your course...I am falling in love with our home all over again.

Decorating is not as complicated as it once seemed!

I love your easy process to determine my style. I've also learned that my style has changed over the years and seasons of my life and that decorating properly/successfully is NOT as complicated as it once seemed!!!

Lightbulb moment!

Your explanation of paint colors was the light bulb moment for me! I am enjoying your teaching.  Thanks!

Filled me with the confidence I need

Oh Shannon, thank you, thank you thank you!!  I wish I could download you and take you with me, but your Decor Staples Checklist has definitely given me the guidance and filled me with the confidence I need!

Love this idea!

Orbs are such a great decor item to add to a space. Staining the hoops really gives them a vintage feel. Thanks for the inspiration.


I love your instructions!

LMAO!! I love your How Not to Paint Cabinet instructions! It made me laugh with good humor! Kudos for sharing your lessons learned!!

Done with Haphazard Decor!

I'm so done with Haphazard Decor! (Yes, I think I just made that "style" up). Thank you for your style quiz!


So Accurate!

I thought the quiz was so accurate, I want my friends to do it. I feel I like such a mix of things and the quiz described them all so well!

A trusted friend

Before I felt overwhelmed by my clutter. Now, I feel like I have a trusted friend alongside me to pull me out of my paralysis with a fresh mindset!
