If I had to choose one word to describe this tablescape it would be simple! Thank goodness, being the girl boss of this blog, I can add elegant, classy, casual, earthy, and painless to the description if I take a notion!

With the adjoining living room alive with color, the brown, white and crystal tablescape might be a welcome rest for the eye if one is needed.


Although the brown and white gingham napkins were the initial inspiration, I knew immediately that they would pair so well with my vintage Johnson Brothers Olde English Countryside dishware.



The table is anchored with a vintage white tablecloth that has a exquisite five inch lace trim. Yes, it is a round table cloth on a rectangle table. I break almost all the rules, so that’s no surprise to you! I love that you get a good look at the lace as it borders the ends of the table.


The center piece is super quick, easy, and inexpensive. We love those words, right?  I used a galvanized lantern that I’ve had for a while as the base. Instead of using a predictable candle, I loaded it with fruit, vegetables, plants, and fairy lights (a modern day cornucopia)! Please leave a comment below if you’d like an additional step-by-step post for how to make your own.



The candlesticks, floral vases, chargers, and water goblets were crystal clear; they add an unexpected fancy element to all the earthy browns. When the lighting was perfect for photographing the table, and I had no flowers on hand, I headed to the front yard and clipped some low hanging branches from our Japanese Maple. You can see they are just starting to show off their beautiful red fall color.



You know by now, that the chandelier can’t go unadorned. She got REAL fancy this fall with a feather boa all her own. I think it’s stunning on her. What do you think?


Finally, if you head over to my Instagram account  (just hover over this blue type and click)  you can view a video of this tablescape. Just scroll down the feed a little and you’ll find it! Now, bring on the fall color mother nature!

Enjoy Today!

Love y’all,

Lori Nell
