I have a system when I decorate for a new season. I basically pull everything I might want to use to decorate into one room. That room becomes a total hot mess landing zone (items fly in and out daily) while I’m styling the rest of the house. My hot mess landing zone as of late has been my formal dining room and this week I finally got it cleaned up and put back together. Fall bins are put away and it feels great!

My formal dining room.. finally clean! See.. I promised I’d bring us right back to Fall now didn’t I!?
At least for a post or two. ;)
I moved my cute little olive tree in this corner and kind of love it there.
I also brought my industrial shelf in from my hallway and decided to use it for extra storage in my dining room for all of my wooden bowls.
I’m running out of room in my decor closet and I decided they are pretty enough to just display for a while. My shelf fits so nicely in this happy little spot.
Always fun to move older items around and make them feel like new again isn’t it!?

For table decor I decided to work smarter, not harder and just stick with the same look I have on my kitchen dining nook table and my coffee table. I still love it so much!
I found this beautiful ivory chiffon table runner for just $10! Isn’t it pretty!? I tied the ends and love how they hang. If you have a shorter table than mine this runner would be pretty hanging down longer and touching the floor too.
The only addition to this long table compared to my other tables is that I added these fun wooden candleholders.
I enjoyed this look for a day and then decided to add some dishes!
Just a simple table setting for 5 since we aren’t entertaining much these days. We haven’t been using this table and I decided today that it’s time we start. Why not enjoy a pretty table for regular family dinners with just the 5 of us? Even if dinner consists of takeout or pancakes. :)
I’ve used my wooden chargers for years and still love them so much! The cute appetizer plates say things like “grateful” and “thankful.” They aren’t in stock anymore, but I’ll link to some fun similar options below.
What really makes this simple table setting beautiful is my Amazon gold flatware! Kenny surprised me with it for Christmas last year. And by surprised I mean that I picked it out for him to order for me.
But it was still a surprise to see whether or not he would follow through. ;)
So nice to have our dining room all clean and dressed up for Fall!
Just in time to start pulling out the Christmas bins.
