Sharing a green and neutral fall tablescape for home ideas and inspiration.
How is it already mid-September?!
I’m wracking my brain, trying to figure out how I was just welcoming May with open arms and so excited about all of the things that summer had in store for us.
We were going to get out on the lake at least once a week. We were going to have bonfires all the time. Grill out with friends as much as we could. Spend lots of time with family. Tube down the Rum River. Head up to our favorite antique store and spend the day thrifting. Sit on the porch and just enjoy the view.
Then it was June and we started tackling the laundry room.
And before we knew it, July Fourth was approaching and we were starting on the prep work for the garage.
Then we broke ground on the garage July 22 and you all know the rest of that story. We didn’t come up for air until August 19.
We were a week away from the wedding and it was a blur of cleaning and yard work and putting the house into some semblance of normalcy before all the wedding festivities began.
And then we GOT MARRIED (!!!)
Now it’s the middle of September and I find myself looking back on the last three months still unsure of where all the time went.
Side note: my husband (yes, I just had to write that out because it sounds so damn good 🙂 ) has whole heartedly disagreed with me on this point because fall = hunting season.
All of this to say I’m welcoming the cooler, shorter days with all the traditional decor, in a not-so-traditional color. Greens and neutrals are what we’re embracing this year – as a nod to the summer that flew by way too fast.
Thankfully Target was fully onboard with my decor choice this year and their Dollar Spot is bursting with beautiful greens and neutrals. I just love it when we’re on the same page 🙂
Just like summer, we set up outside… and let me tell you, in about two weeks when the fall colors are in full swing, the view is jaw dropping. I’ll share some pictures on Instagram when they’re looking their best!
To make this dinner party a little more fall friendly, throw blankets are a must. The days are still relatively warm but the nights can get a little chilly – even for us Minnesotans 😉 Oversized scarves work well, too – they’re basically a small throw and can be found for $7 at my favorite store.
Adding a few deer antlers was also a necessity. After all, it is hunting season and we’ve got a basement shelf full of these babies just asking to be put to good use.
To finish it off, I scattered green hued $1 pumpkins across the table, threw out a few candles and topped off all the glasses with a nice glass of white wine.

All our best,
