A Fall Table For Two Alfresco

9.22.2015

Since transforming our deck a few months ago I have been enjoying the seating area under the pergola and now that it has finally cooled down a bit we can dine alfresco on the other side. Today I'm sharing how I put together a table for two......fall style. I am joining a fall tour today and the links will be at the end of the post for more table ideas.


I had almost everything on hand except for the plaid tablecloth and napkins that I found at HomeGoods.

I hung this sign I have had for years. I figured it works since this is outside and I have several potted mums sitting about.

The round table is a bamboo fold up table that we can just bring out when needed and easily put away. I draped a vintage quilt across it with the back side showing. The other side is blue squares. Then I added the plaid tablecloth.

  I filled this very old Pottery Barn vase with fall colored faux flowers.

I forgot this pillow is also new found at the Pottery Barn outlet last week.

I have had Mr. Owl. I like to bring out owls and squirrels for the fall.



The table set for soup or chili on a cool evening.

I believe I found these plates at HomeGoods several years ago when I was hosting Thanksgiving.

The napkins were purchased at the same time as the plaid tablecloth. I love how the two patterns work together with the same colors. They were not sold together.

A ceramic squirrel and one of my plush pumpkins add some fall whimsy. This is just a fun casual dinner. Nothing formal or fussy.



As the sun goes down a candle in an old mason jar filled with acorns and tiny pine cones will help out.

As it gets darker it's time to turn the cafe lights on and it has been getting quite chilly at night so I have some throws in a basket to grab if we want to sit out a bit longer.

You might have noticed my hanging shutters have been removed. The top shutter was coming apart and Mr. Savvy may try to repair it. If it can't be repaired I may try something else there. Ideas are spinning.


Be sure to find much more inspiration at the links below. If you missed yesterday's posts you can catch up at all the links and be sure to return each day through Thursday.

  16. This is lovely Kim! When I lived in Idaho, we did not have a Home Goods anywhere near us. The closest one was several hundred miles away. Now that we have moved back to Texas, I visit Home Goods each time I go to Houston for a major shop. I am hooked! I have found wonderful items there, especially linens. Your plaid cloth is so warm and friendly for a Fall tablescape. Love it!

  17. I'm usually a fan of neutral decor and table settings but this! This turned out so beautiful! It's not one of those table settings where you are afraid to touch anything. Your table setting is incredibly cozy!

  19. Everything looks so cozy and inviting for a fall meal outside. The warm colours in your plaid tablecloth just say "fall". How nice to be able to go over to your seating area after dinner and enjoy its ambiance too. You must be loving this "fixed up" area of your home now.
