Farmhouse Thanksgiving Table

Hi there friends! Welcome to my blog!

If you are visiting for the STYLED SET HOLIDAY ENTERTAINING blog tour, Welcome!

Our home is always busy around the Holidays…what a wonderful time of year to welcome friends and family! And of course, one of my favorite times to decorate our dining room farm table.

I’m not one to have any “Fall Decor” stored up in boxes…instead, I enjoy using natural elements that provide a vintage, country farmhouse feel.


I started with a beautiful vintage French sheet from ELSIE GREEN, draped over the table.

Using fresh fall leaves, I created a garland centerpiece… with gourd- Cinderella type pumpkins down the center of the table. I really like the subtle colors against the white.


I decided to keep the mantle very simple…French jars for another pop of color.


As chargers, I used my round French bread boards. They make a good contrast with the ivory China. And I used plain ball jars instead of traditional glasses.




I thought it might be fun to just place the napkins into the top of the jars. That way, each guest can grab their napkin before pouring the drinks. In the background here below, you can see our buffet table. It has a French bottle drying rack, an olive tree, and a few aprons hanging in easy reach. And there’s always a stack of extra dishes.


The last element I added, is the French pitch pots with candles and tiny pinecones. The candles are four different scents from Ivy and Stone Home…and make a pretty soft glow against the pinecones.


The pears were added at the end, and I thought they compliment the fall leaves so nicely. All my favorite colors, in one table setting!


And our table is all set for Thanksgiving! All we need is a kitchen full of turkey and dressing…and a table full of family.

I hope this inspires you to create something beautiful for your loved ones this Holiday season! Can you believe how fast the season is approaching?! Remember, you don’t have to spend a lot of money on Fall decor. A few branches, fresh fruit, and pumpkins make a pretty, all-natural Thanksgiving Table, perfect for entertaining! Keep it simple, and enjoy yourself!


Thanks again for visiting me here today! Please see below the entire list of bloggers who are participating in this fun tour!

We’ll meet up again in November for our Christmas tour!

Blessings to each of you!

Fall Farmhouse Kitchen


Welcome everyone! If you are visiting for the bHOME Fall Tour…I’m so happy you are here!

Please join in our bHOME Fall Tour giveaway at the bottom of the post. And you’ll be able to visit the other blogs as well  :)

Thanks for visiting my blog today! Our kitchen is all ready for the changing season, with all natural Fall touches. In addition to a few real pumpkins, I have clipped some golden rod from our pasture to make a few arrangements, and hang to dry. Yes…it does cause a few of us to sneeze, so I brought some in for photos and then put it on our porch for fall decor.



I received this fabulous French fruit crate from Elsie Green House and Home…and hung it above the island to dry herbs. Here, I have cut eucalyptus, basil, Russian sage, and golden rod. The golden rod is also in the metal EAT sign. I like to use fresh fruit as decor this time of year. Fresh pears and apples are on the baking station. The candle burning is from CANDELLES, and is the Maple Vanilla Scent …perfect Fall candle!

The Russian Sage is from Greenwood Nursery online shop…and is one of my blog sponsors listed on the sidebar.





My sweet husband built our reclaimed wooden vent hood several years ago, and it’s one of my favorite additions in our home. I love the character it brings to our almost all-white kitchen. The rug is from Ivy and Stone Home, and is from the Magnolia rug line. It adds another pop of fall color. The sink curtain is actually a vintage grain sack; I used clips from IKEA and a tension rod to attach it under the sink.






I love French canning jars! They add a pop of color, and serve as pretty vases too. I got the tall dark green one from Vivi et Margot online shop, as well as the ceramic faisselle. I have found a few ironstone pieces at antique shops or flea markets…it’s one of my favorite collections.


And that’s a rap!

Vintage Country Farmhouse Fall

Welcome to AUTUMN’S IN THE AIR…a Fall Tour blog hop! If you are visiting from

Maison de Cinq, I’m so happy you are here!

As you may be aware, our Louisiana temps have been hotter than usual, and it’s felt like summer…until yesterday, it finally felt like FALL! And wouldn’t you know, I waited until the last minute to take the remainder of my photos for this fall tour!? I was so excited, that I opened the doors and turned up the music. The cooler temps put me in the mood for pumpkins and cozy blankets.

So…let me show you around our family room.



Our family room is exactly that…where we snuggle up on the sofas and watch movies, eat popcorn, and work on the computer. It’s a very casual room. We have three sofas- two white and one leather. And we use a vintage chicken crate as our coffee table. For Fall, you’ll notice I use mostly natural items. I love the non-traditional neutral colors. All of the greenery you see came from our pasture…they’re really just weeds. LOL But hey, it’s free decor.


The fringe pillows are from Loloi Rugs. I love adding lots of texture this time of year. Layers of cozy throws…like the white Montauk Throw from Pom Pom at Home, makes for a cozy and welcoming Fall home.






We’ve added several architectural elements and vintage items to our home. I like the worn, country farmhouse style this creates. The walls are Cotton Fluff by BEHR…and makes a nice backdrop for pops of color and vignettes.




I love this time of year! Fall scented candles, warm soup, and a pumpkin spice latte are just some of my favorites that I enjoy this time of year. I’m so thankful for family and friends…and it makes me look forward to the upcoming Holidays!

And if you missed my Fall Farmhouse Table, GO HERE to take a look at a simple Fall table setting.
