Neutral Fall Tablescape Decor with Amber Bottles

This post contains affiliate links.

My dining room recently has been evolving little by little. So far, I've added new wall decor and a new chandelier. Today I'm sharing my updated fall tablescape decor, but soon I'll be sharing my new table! Yep. I did it. I finally got my white table. I'm excited to share that with you soon....and I'll share all the reasons I replaced this table...even though I love it so much! But today I'm going just talk about what I put into making this neutral fall table setting with accents of greenery and amber bottles.

For this tablescape, I went with mainly neutral colors and then decided to fill it in with this greenery I found Michaels. When you get their sale, they can be really cheap! This was from the fall line for half off, so $10!

As always with my centerpieces, I began with height in the center, and then cascaded downwards. The height came from a small planter stool and candle stick. Both of these are from Hobby Lobby.

For fillers, I used some cement and terracotta pots, beaded garland, vintage amber bottles, and obviously pumpkins. Even though all my pumpkins are white, I went with a lot of different looking faux ones to keep it a little more interesting.

I'm loving these small amber bottles I found at a local antique store. They were about $1 each. I wish they had more! The color just screams fall decor to me. They add the perfect little vintage touch.

I found this vintage wood candy dish also at the same antique store. I wasn't sure what to do with it for awhile, but just really loved it. I had a pumpkin in it, and then decided to add some acorns instead.

To balance out the tablescape on this side, I added these loose book pages. Loose pages are my favorite decor fillers.

I corralled all the "center" stuff in this upside down wood riser. I found this gem at Home Goods. I decided to use it as a tray instead of it's intended use. This runner is also from Home Goods. It is so long, 10 feet! Long enough and wide enough to cover all the yucky parts of my table.

Here's a good look on the cascading effect. I do love having symmetry, but this is a good balance of symmetry with asymmetrical items.

To add to this look, I switched out the end pillows with these pretty striped ones from Hobby Lobby. I also switched out the middle chair for this antique wood one I got at a junk sale for $5!

I always love a good before and after...which will be even greater with the new table. But I'll share one with you here anyway :)  Same table, same room...just lots of different decor!

I have so many projects happening right now....can't wait to share them all with you! To follow all that is going on behind the scenes, be sure to follow my social media :)

Neutral Fall Bedroom Decor -Tour 2020

This post contains affiliate links.

Are you one to decorate your whole house for the season, or just a couple of select rooms? I definitely go all out with most seasons.  Come Christmas time....every single room in my house gets a dose of it. That being said, my bedroom didn't go unscathed from getting a little bit of a fall touch.

Would you believe me if I told you, that this was the first time I made my bed in months? ha! For reals. I wish I was one of those people who wake up and make their bed in the morning, but alas, I am not. In fact, 99% of the year, my bed is "made" of mounds of clothes and dog toys. I tend to make my bed more when it's newly decorated. So, that is really the only reason why I decorate in here for holidays. Gives me a reason to clean it :)

For my little fall touches, I added pumpkins on the bench at the foot of my bed. I then brought in a footstool and brought some down to the ground.

I love having this tray on the bench, it's just a little extra area to decorate. I kept it relatively simple with some torn out book pages and pumpkins.

Throughout the years, the items on my nightstands have stayed pretty much the same. I do switch the bunches of greenery out for the season, and add a little item or so to what space that's left.

These cute little pumpkins fit perfectly here without having to move anything around. Adding fall touches doesn't have to be forced, just a little bit here or there usually does the trick! What I did do a little extra this year was change out my normal botanical prints for these fall ones. It's just a subtle change, but it made a fun little pop of fall.

I don't share this view often, just because it's a bugger to take pictures of. The light is awful from this angle no matter what time of day. You may recognize this faux mantel from my living room from two years ago. I love it in here, even though it's not real, it makes my room feel a little more cozier.

It's funny how a clean room can put a smile on your face. It's seriously so nice to come in here when it's all made up, and not have to hop over dog toys and kids toys and clothes :)

Now for what my plans are in this room. It's so hard to think about changing it when I already love it, but I have had dreams for years now on making this entire room floor to ceiling board and batten. I would then add faux beams to my vaulted ceiling. Not sure how my ugly ol' fan will fit, but it's not leaving me anytime soon :(. I haven't done it yet because I seriously am having a problem about changing something that doesn't really need to be changed. What are you thoughts? Go for it, or leave as is?

Fall Living Room Decorating Ideas - Tour 2020

This post contains affiliate links.

Welcome to my living room fall tour! It's the first day of fall today! It's so hard for me to kiss summer goodbye. Summer is my season. Fall isn't bad....but it just leads into winter. Bringing out the pumpkins is always hard on me because I know when those get taken down, Christmas is next. And then... winter. Cold. Snowy. Dark. Winter. How was that for setting the mood? ha! I need to focus more on enjoying the current day and not the inevitable, right? Right :) 

When decorating this room for fall this year, I went away with my all white and used deep rich oranges and fall-esque greens. Sometimes it's fun to play around with new things .. sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't! But, you won't ever know until you try.

I try to add small touches of the season on most surfaces, even if it's just a little pumpkin here or there. This chair has seen better days! But it's the chair my kids flock to when their favorite movie is on. Ninety-five percent of the day that pillow and blanket is on the floor. Drives me mad, but that's living.

I peppered my living room with accents of those deep oranges and browns. This view shows my two story great room which I have a love hate relationship with it. I love how it opens everything up. I hate that the ceilings and the 20 foot walls aren't painted the color of my choice. One of these days I'll figure out how to fix that...one of these days :) It'll either take lots of labor, or money! 
This mirror was a new find that I wasn't looking for. I came across it at a local store and couldn't leave without it. With a price tag of $150, how couldn't I? I've seen a similar mirror go for $500! This is a super new look here. The other mirrors that shared this corner have been there for about 10 years now. It got some getting used to, but I love it so much. Only problem? Total shows all the stuff under my couch! Gotta learn to keep that clean from toys now :)

I'm pretty sure it was this mirror that helped guide me to the colors I chose in here for fall. There's just something about those wood-type tones and white!

Because of the new mirror, I decided to keep my mantel simple and neutral since they kind of compete for the focal point now. I layered lots of pumpkins on here with some greenery that looks like it's just about to turn yellow that I found from Hobby Lobby.

When I decorate for fall, I make sure to add all the textures and lots of pillows and blankets. ... Not that I don't do that anyway, now I can just finally get away with it :)

This corner that you don't see behind the couch is actually a play area that houses mounds of toys. I think about switching this couch out all the time, but I really love how it hides it all! I made sure to include some faux leather pillows on the couch to help tie everything together.

This is the cabinet that hides my toy secrets :) It does give me something fun to decorate on top of though! I usually have a clock here, but imagined something else for fall. I made this sign for under $10 a few weeks ago. You can see the tutorial here. And see that candlestick that's melted all over? That's what happens when you leave the room for a minute and forget your candles are still going. Oops! Lesson learned.

This view shows one of my new favorite pillow covers. It's from Hobby Lobby and is usually sold out. It's big and soft and just amazing! Plus, that throw on the side is the most amazing blanket. I got it last year just before Christmas. My husband laughed at me for the color, but I was just drawn to it. I knew how perfect it would be for fall. Plus, it's seriously the best blanket to snuggle up in. I found some similar again this year at Home Goods.

Full room views are always my fave. It gives the sense of space. Now I just gotta figure where to put that beautiful mirror come Christmas time so I can put my tree there.

I still can't believe fall is official here! Like it's finally okay to show off my decor for the season without feeling guilty :) What's your favorite season? I feel like fall is most peoples! As I said, summer is mine for sure!
