The small town Colorado girl who’s obsessed with home and everything that entails! I’m a creative, a decorator, a day dreamer, a huge fan of scones, and I’m passionate about loving where I live and making a home.
Today, I’m sharing my first post specifically featuring the beauty of the fall season. It’s one of my very favorite seasons, and for good reason! It’s so full of gorgeous color, texture and beautiful outdoor elements that make decorating for the season so easy, and lovely!
For today’s post, I want to introduce my beautiful friend Chelsea and her gorgeous home. She and her husband moved into their new custom built home in March, and I was so happy, excited and honored that I could help with portions of their design decisions in their new home. When they moved in this Spring, she asked that I help her “spruce” things up, and that’s exactly what I’ve been doing! I’ve slowly been helping her add those beautiful home-y touches that really do make the difference, and today we’re focusing on the fall table setting I helped her create for her dining room with the help of Pier 1!
Friends, get ready because her home is stunning… and I’m entirely serious about that! She’s graciously agreed that I can share more of it in the future, and I am thrilled! You are going to love it! 🙂
Her dining room is such a big, beautiful, bright space, which made it the perfect room to handle a large center piece from clipped tree branches…
I found the hurricane vase (medium size) at Pier 1, and the second I saw it I knew it would be perfect in so many different ways… but filled with these beautiful tree branches, it really shines!
I know I say it over and over and over, but the best way to get some major decorating bang for your buck is to use the great outdoors as your inspiration. These tree clippings came from my uncle’s mountain ranch, which made for a perfect day trip, but also provided the most beautiful centerpiece! Whenever you can, bring the beautiful outdoors inside!
For the actual table setting, I chose these absolutely stunning wood chargers from Pier 1. I fell in love with them the second I saw them, and I knew they were the perfect piece that would make each setting feel special…
Seriously gorgeous, right?!
I also love to use plain white dishes, which really allow for the table “accessories” to shine. These dishes are also from Pier 1, and I love their simple lines… perfect for every day use, but fancy enough for parties and holidays!
I also loved these cloth napkins as well, and they add the perfect touch that really ties in with the wood chargers and plates…
And to tie in the centerpiece to each setting, I placed a small aspen clipping right next to the silverware. Such a simple touch that really makes a beautiful addition…
For serving, I also incorporated this awesome wood and marble cheese board…
And just because I love the way this table (and room) turned out, here’s a few more beauty shots!
Gorgeous, right? I can’t wait to show you more of her stunning home! But in the meantime, if you have plans to host any fall parties, Pier 1 has so many awesome fall table items right now! I’ve gathered a collection of some of my very favorite things that will make your next dinner party, or gathering a huge success!
