Fall table decorations on a burlap runner

Now that my dining room is clear of all the yard sale stuff that had swallowed it over the last few weeks - I can finally see my table again.  That inspired me to decorate our large dining room table for fall.  If you follow along 2IY often you might notice a trend - I tend to shop my house before I shop anywhere else.  That's exactly what I did for my fall table decorations.


I started with the table funner.   For fall, I wanted something a little earthy and rustic. I have been doing a lot of burlap crafts lately so I cut a piece of burlap long enough that it would slightly hang over the side of the table.  Then I pulled out about 10 or 12 strands of the burlap on each end to make a fringe.


From there I just started adding and rearranging pieces one at a time.  I started with the large the glass candle holder.  I filled the bottom with pinecone-looking pieces that I took out of some potpourri before adding the two tone (once three-tone) candle.



The white candlestick was a thrift store find that I had spray painted and used on the mantle for awhile.  To add a little color I put what looks like a mini wreath around the bottom - it's actually a napkin ring and I actually have them all over my house.  Shhh...don't tell anyone I'm using napkins rings to decorate.



To balance that candle stick, I added one of my tree branch candle sticks on the other side.  I love these candlesticks especially for this time of year, they really bring the outside in.   As you can see, there's another napkin ring.


To fill in between the candles, I added a few leaves and pumpkins that I had leftover after updating my front door fall wreath.  They provided some color and texture and really completed the look.



Thanks for stopping by 2IY! If you like what you see, we'd love for you to pin it!
