Fall Decor for your dining room table that can lead you into Thanksgiving

Cloche is the new Hot Item to have in home staging. I love to add one or even two to my dining room table. Also, candles make for a beautiful table and adds ambiance and sets the mood . Always fun to dim the lights if you have that capability or even turn them off and eat by candlelight. I have added cute pumpkins with crystal knobs to add some whimsy to the table and these have been moved all around my house .

Adding greenery where you can is what I always say and do. I have added a garland to the top of the mirror and some twinkle battery led lights that automatically turn on at the set time. This boxwood wreath goes from summer into fall with the beautiful ribbon.

When dressing a table I believe layers help soften the space if you choose not to use a tablecloth. I feel tablecloths are a bit dated. I started this runner with a jute thick braided table runner ( see example next photo) , then added a pink quilted shabby chic one made of cotton and then finished it with a folded toile fabric just in the middle. Then I added a round wreath under the cloche to add some dimension and texture. Also, sometimes I use a mood board to help with color swatches to help plan my color scheme.

Finally adding lots of candles and candle holders, I mainly use skinny and tall sizes but you can use larger but it all depends on space. Now this is a setting that will be a buffet style dining so nothing has to be removed before dining. I also use lots of battery operated candles and set the to turn on automatically. I have added many different styles of candle holders purchased at Hobby Lobby and Purplerose Home. Two sets are vintage-crystal glass and the iron with brown beads and gold touches.

Hobby Lobby and Bed , Bath & Beyond carries this brand.
