Farmhouse Fall Dining Room Decor - Tour 2019
It pains me to even write that title. Can someone tell me how in the heck did summer go by so fast? Am I the only one trying to hold on to every ounce of summer or feels like they are betraying summer for putting out fall decor? I'm just not ready...but the weather sure is! It's a high of 60 degrees here today. This was our low 4 days ago. When it's ready to be fall, I guess it's ready to be fall! :) Can't stop it.
This tour is going to be the first of a few fall tours I'll be sharing with you this year. I have a video tour of this room and my process on behind decorating it at the bottom of the post, so be sure to check it out :) This tour is a part of many tours going on this week hosted by Marty from a Stroll Thru Life. If you are making your way through the tours, and have come from Sarah's blog Life on Virginia Street, welcome! If you just landed here as one of my normal readers, be sure to check out all the other tours for some amazing fall inspiration. I have all the links to them at the bottom of this post.
So, it's obvious from my beginning paragraph that I am so not ready for fall decor. It really pained me to bring out my pumpkins. But, in a small way, it was welcomed. My decor in most of my rooms have been the same since spring with small changes for summer. It was ready to be freshened up a bit.

For the theme in my dining room decor this fall, I went with neutrals and greens. I feel like that was my theme for the past year with everything :) ....But! I actually did add some color in my living room and my front living room. So, I did branch out a bit in those rooms. #shockerIn my dining room, I started off with decorating my tablescape. Pumpkins, of course, are a mainstay in here for fall. I used lots of heights starting with the large lantern and going down to the pumpkins on the plant stands and then lastly to the faux greens in the aged terracotta pots. (was that a long sentence or what?! ha! :) )
I'm not one to really set the table for anything. I feel like having it like this everyday just makes it feel cluttered. We use this table for everything....work, homework, crafts, coloring, eating (obviously). But, I do like the way it looks when it's all set! It's just not really functional for us :) I bet if I had a formal dining room dedicated to using it just on special occasions, I would be all about the place settings!
For the place setting, I used a charger I found from Kirklands, added my go-to plate that was passed down to me from my mother-in-law. I then sandwiched a napkin in between the plate and a square/round bowl. In the bowl I added a little pumpkin with a pine cone and farmhouse beads. If I were to host Thanksgiving dinner, maybe I would use the place settings. How about you, are a you place settings type person? Or more casual? For me? I'm all for easy and using paper plates! haha.
My favorite way to set the table is in a tiered style, higher on top and then going down in the middle. I'm definitely more of a symmetrical decorator :) Here's a wider view of the whole tablescape.
For the buffet, I did change this up a bit. I moved my larger breadboard off and placed this cute sign from Kirklands.
My tiered tray is topped off my with my favorite fall accessories, these cute white pumpkins with curly jute stems.
The opposite wall houses more of my mugs. I kept the theme going by draping some greenery over the wire cup rack. And one of these days I'm going to change out that chandelier for the beaded one I bought a year ago. Yeah. You read that right. I forget about it, then I have a tour and remember how I need to change it. One would think I would have changed it that same day...but alas, my husband thinks it looks like a taxi driver's beaded seat cover (insert eye roll here). So, he's obviously not thrilled on helping me install it. Maybe...just maybe for Christmas I'll have it in here :)To finish up, here's a full view of this room. I just love this table, it seats 8/9 people easily and even extends to add two more! And to think at one time (years ago), I wanted to get rid of it or paint it! I'm so glad I came to my senses.
