Fall 5::A Thoughtful Place

Hello Friends!

I can't believe we're almost through September and officially in the midst of fall!  I've had so much fun seeing all the fall inspiration around blog land lately, especially here on the Fall 5 Series!  :)


I've got a very special treat for my final Fall 5 post!  The beautiful and talented Courtney from A Thoughtful Place is here to showcase her 5 favorite tablescapes!


I was fortunate enough to meet Courtney in July and we have quickly become close friends...sisters really!  We're both from Southern CA and I know we have many years of friendship ahead {and I'm so excited for our dates when I'm down south!}.  If you haven't checked out Courtney's blog, you are definitely missing out!  I can only hope to have a gorgeous home and family like hers one day!  :)  Please welcome Courtney!

One of my favorite parts of fall is entertaining. I think the crisp air, the changing leaves, and the thought of warm cider all lend so nicely to having people gather in your home. I have put together five ideas for your fall tabletop. I adore the tall branches in this first shot. Might be unrealistic for seeing others at the table, but you could easily adapt it for a side table or mantel.

The above two images are tables I put together. Why not let your guests have fun with a paper table runner. While great for children, it's also proves really fun for the adults. Put a coloring tool in someone's hand and suddenly you have a very relaxed dinner party. Once Halloween passes, the mini pumpkins take on a whole new life with some gold spray paint. Inexpensive and simple for hosting during Thanksgiving. 

So here's to inviting friends and family over for good food, conversation, and all around good times. Do you have any fun tablescapes planned for fall?

Thanks for having me, Natasha. Honored to be hanging out at Schue Love!

I am just SO in love with her last setting...those golden pumpkins are simply divine.  Can't wait to host my first autumn dinner party now!  Thanks again to Courtney for being here today!


NOW it's your turn!  I invite all of you to link up your latest fall posts...link up below and showcase all that you're loving this fall!  And Halloween inspiration is more than welcome as well!  Great way to kick start the holidays!  :)

  3. I too love the rustic look as well. Adore the mason jars with the floating candles. And, the interactive table is perfect for keep little hands busy during long holiday meals. And, to be honest, I think the adults enjoy it too!

  19. Wonderful Fall inspiration and I love Courtney's tablescapes. The gold pumpkins add a nice touch of glam. How fun to sit at a table to draw! I've done that in restaurants but what a great idea to incorporate that into a dinner party for adults. Courtney is such a talented and lovely woman.

  21. Beautiful and inspirational pics...I love the idea of a doodle runner. Have done that for kids' parties. Also redoing the pumpkins for Thanksgiving makes sense and is cost-effective; particularly this year where in the NE we might have a shortage of them.
