Finally. Fall has really arrived. The weather has cooled off and believe it or not, the leaves are starting to fall from the trees. I’ve got some fall dining room decor to share today and I kept things simple. I added pops of gold and orange to other rooms but not in the dining room. It’s all natural elements and simple, neutral colors. Boxwood, dried hydrangeas, cotton bolls and drop cloth. I’m also joining the Fall bHome Tour so I’ve got all that information waiting for you at the end of the post.

I decided to go all neutral in the dining room when I spotted these drop cloth pumpkins from Cloth and Patina on Instagram. I don’t often fall in love at first sight, but for some reason I did when I saw these pumpkins. I think they are simply adorable. I headed straight over to Etsy and before the afternoon was over, my order was placed. It was definitely an impulse buy but I absolutely love them. When they arrived in the mail, it was just like Christmas.
I dug out one of my boxwood garlands, to tie in with the wreath, from a Christmas bin in the basement. I nestled the pumpkins on either side of the garland and the centerpiece was finished. It literally took less than 15 minutes.
The only other new items were the leaf dessert plates. They are a cross between gold and mocha…and I think they add a little sparkle to the neutral place setting. (All the sources are listed at the end of the post.)
I have plenty of dried hydrangea blooms so I filled an old enamelware pitcher and placed it on the side table.
Every fall I try to come up with something different for the dining room centerpiece…and every fall I wonder if I can pull it off. I really do love this one and it was honestly the easiest thing to do. Even if you don’t have a dining room, something like this could be used on a sofa table or coffee table.
I’ve got more fall decor to come this weekend so stay tuned for that. As always, thank you for spending a few minutes of your time with me today.
