{ Rustic Whimsical Fall Harvest Tablescape }

Happy Monday sweet pals!! It's definitely a Monday around here ha. I had to run some errands & edit a few things & while walking into my office I noticed a cord completely demolished by the mischievous Mr. Wibble my office mascot { lionhead BUNNY }. I almost had a total freak out & then remembered why I don't EVER leave things plugged in ha...Such a scare! Anyways back to today's post..I woke up on Sunday morning refreshed after having a long weekend of inspiration from within, no company or friends over { rare for us } & decided to sip mint hot chocolate & stage a full on whimsical fall harvest scene in the dining room...I tell you guys this all the time, but although I'm OCD, I usually do things on a whim & well this is one of those times. I knew right from the start what I wanted out of this space for this shoot, which is rare usually. It all stemmed from some leftover walnuts that needed to be used...I wanted it to look vintage with a touch of whimsical charm with a huge Fall harvest dinner in mind. I'm going to stop trying to explain & just let you take a look down below...

I'm usually not all about formal-ish settings, but whenever I get to use my grams' old vintage scalloped gold rimmed dishes I DO! I used some fancy { to us } silverware, green plaid napkins & just things I wanted to display! I wanted it to feel cozy fall with just tans, deep dark greens & black mixed in with all the rustic wood tones! I used old amber soda bottles for the drinks etc.. Whimsical charm g a l o r e!


This is my most favorite shot from the shoot! It entails exactly what I was going for in this dining room scene. Nothing is perfect & everything is cozy whimsical fall! P.s. the walnuts are still out, but I'm sure the dogs will help with putting them away soon..haha eek!


The biggest change was adding this chalkboard in the dining room! I got it for free after someone pitched it & just chalk-painted the frame part.
 FTR: Everything in this space I already had, leaving this whole shoot for free!! How cool is that?! 

Edit- The greenery is new $10 @hobbylobby

Since this is a harvest style dining room look, I wanted to incorporate some pumpkins! This little wall is super rustic now & fits right in!



We just added those iron hooks from a salvaged  coat rack & I think I should blog them soon! I forget half the stuff we do & think it's too small to blog but a few of you have reached out asking for more stuff like that, so YES to that!







I truly hope you felt like our guest at this whimsical fall harvest table of ours! Thanks soo much for stopping by today & sharing our posts & following via all our social media outlets! My little practical blog is growing THANKS to you ALL!
