A peek at a little sprinkle of autumn in the dining room.
Autumn Dining Room
Did I mention that I am behind on autumn decor in the house this year? Definitely a bit behind, even though there are a few little heirloom pumpkins and autumn toned florals that have started to appear. The funny thing is- I am ahead on Christmas. I have already set up and photographed several trees for the 12 Trees of Christmas series this year. It is a wonky seasonally confused schedule over here- though as a photographer, I work ahead most of the year. So it isn’t unusual and I do enjoy it.
But when my friends mentioned it was an autumn tour post coming up- and I looked around the house and saw twinkling trees and not lots of pumpkins- I knew I needed to get back in the autumn game. And I decided to add just a bit of autumn style to the dining room – and dress up that vintage swan planter for the season.
Vintage Swan Planter
I shared this chunky vintage swan planter last week Here and mentioned I would show what I did for this autumn look. I filled the swan with dried hydrangeas- honestly, they could be an all year long look if you wanted. Simply change the vintage green to blues or purples, etc. for more seasonal color.
I also added a few chunky mini heirloom pumpkins and candles to warm up the look. Simple and sweet is my motto for table centerpieces that don’t overwhelm the table.
Place Setting Details
Though I didn’t set the table for this post- I did pull out some of my go to favorites for creating place settings that have an abundance of charm. The pewter flatware is so pretty- and they have such character in their patina & details. The plates are also always on repeat favorites and the checked napkins a beautiful warm touch.
Another vintage find is this olive green vintage glassware you can see kind of peeking out of the corner. I bumped into two sizes of these on the shelf at the Re-Store and instantly imagined them on the table for autumn and holiday stylings. I actually found several different vintage table setting elements that thrifting day- will share a closer look at them next week.
The cupboard is not fully styled as it should be – I know. I know. I actually had it all set up and ready for the holiday season (as I mentioned – in Christmas mode over here) so, I have been changing and moving pieces for this quick post and simply I loaded some elements back inside and called it good.
