How to Add Simple Fall Farmhouse Style to the Dining Room

Fall decorating doesn’t need to be complicated or over the top. Here’s how to add simple fall farmhouse style to the dining room. 

This year I had neither the time nor the inclination to make our fall decor complicated. I mentioned it in this post when I shared our fall living room and kitchen. Plain and simple. Just a few touches here and there. The perfect little bit of fall farmhouse style.  

If you’re coming here from Place of My Taste, welcome! 🙂 I’m Shannon and I’m a bit of a homebody, momma to three awesome teenagers and wife to Handsome. I started this blog years ago to share my heart and our home renovations and now I love to encourage other moms to create authentic, lovely homes for themselves & their people.

In this post, I’m going to show you how to add a bit of simple fall farmhouse style to your home!

3 Steps to Add Simple Fall Farmhouse Style to the Dining Room

1. Decorate with Neutrals All Year

I know, I know. Some people like more color than I do. But when you decorate with neutrals in your everyday decor like I do, it’s fairly easy to add a few seasonal touches without a massive decor overhaul. To add that seasonal touch, prop up a sign or intersperse a few seasonal plants into your everyday decor. Add a seasonal wreath behind some regular decor or hung simply on a door. The neutral backdrop makes adding any bit of festivity easier.

2. Keep it Simple, Sweetie

Decorating for the seasons doesn’t have to be layered or even complicated. Sometimes the smallest nod to the season is enough. Like these eight little pumpkins I bought at Homesense years ago. They’re small, but mighty in this black and white space.

You could make your own ‘thankful’ set of pumpkins by hand-painting or stenciling small letters on white baby boo pumpkins. 

3. Utilize a Basic Centerpiece

In our dining room right now, on the table, I have an antique French dough bowl that we picked up at a local antiques and architectural salvage shop. I was thrilled to find it because it’s hard to find them here in Canada. I imagine it will get a lot of use!

For fall, fill a dough bowl with a twisted length of faux fall garland with mini pumpkins and pine cones attached. Top that with a few faux pumpkins and fill in the bare spaces with a couple of paper mache pears to complete the display.

With a basic centerpiece, the table can be set for dinner

Or the centerpiece can live happily alone on the table between meals.

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!!!

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!
