Hello, friends! If you’re stopping by on the seasonal tablescape blog hop, welcome 🙂

Putting together tablescapes is always something I look forward to; it’s such a fun and creative way to not only flex those decor muscles but also work on my photography skills.

But the best part? Seeing all the inspiration from the other talented bloggers who join on this seasonal table decor hop. There’s oodles of ideas to inspire you this fall season!

So without further ado, let’s dive in!

Today’s rustic fall tablescape has the honor of being the first one photographed out on our new deck.

I was definitely in my happy place putting this together; we had beautiful weather, the sun wasn’t too bright and the dogs were running circles around me as I unpacked all the goodies.

In fact, I completely forgot to put out the glasses. So, in this tablescape story, I’m going for a casual vibe of BYOB 🙂

The other item to note – did you know Wal-mart has faux flowers? And not those extra-fake looking ones; it actually was a pretty great selection for fall . Even better, the price tag. I didn’t pay more than $5 for a decent-sized bundle.

Perhaps this is old news but I am not a frequent Wal-marter (Team Target all the way) and was pleasantly surprised to stumble across them.

Other than the faux flower centerpiece, everything else in today’s rustic fall tablescape is from my most favorite place to shop: the basement decor stash.

The green pumpkins are from last year’s Target’s dollar spot, the eucalyptus was already on hand and the antlers… well, if you have been around here before you know Brett has a gigantic collection sitting in our basement.

The decor orbs were found at Hobby Lobby last spring on clearance. I think I paid $3 for a large box of green and neutral. Hell yes to that good deal, amiright?!

To bring it all together, I cut off a long piece of brown kraft paper to serve as the tablecloth. I figured since our guest will be in the casual, BYOB-mood, they’d appreciate the opportunity to bust out their coloring skills in between dinner bites.

If you’re feeling the itch to replicate this, I’ve pulled a list of similar items:

Now off to polish up on our doodling game – that tablecloth isn’t going to decorate itself 🙂

All our best,

    Such a simple but pretty table Kelly! I love the idea of using butcher paper for the table cloth! Practical but still stylish I think!

  2. Kimberly

    This is so pretty!! I love the idea of using brown kraft paper for a tablecloth! That is so fun! I think I will have to check out Walmart’s faux flowers next time. These look great! Thanks for hosting this blog hop!

    Kelly you have a a beautiful outdoor dining space, perfect for fall. I have not shopped faux flowers at Walmart in forever. I usually get them at Hobby Lobby or Joann so I will have to take a look. Love the simplicity of your table and the look of the brown kraft paper. We have use it before on the children’s table at Thanksgiving but it works perfectly on your outdoor fall tablescape.

      Thank you, Shirley! I am sure the kraft paper is perfect for the kiddos!
