Fall Dining Room Home Tour
Ready to decorate for Fall? Need some inspiration? How about a few home tours? I’ve got a fall dining room all set for you!
Hello friends, happy Saturday to you! Today is going to be so fun – I am joining some of my very creative friends to bring you a bit of inspiration for the season. I decided to share my fall dining room!
If you are coming over from my friend Jen, with The Inspiring Home – didn’t she do an amazing job? I just love how she put her spin on Fall.
I am really happy you are here and I can’t wait to show you this year’s interpretation. This year like most – I reimagined decor I already had on hand and add a little more. The idea of repurposing became more important due to the current environment we are all trying to work within.
How to Pull together a beautiful table without spending a fortune?
Let me show you what I did.
Isn’t it pretty? Even though this room is in transition – the dressed-up table makes it feel welcoming.
Moving into a new house always has its “extra costs” right?!? I am happy to say that we ordered shutters for the space and I am on the hunt for the perfect fabric (for curtains), amazing (within budget) lighting, and beautiful hardware. A few super neat ideas are also being dreaming up.
What about “the now”? The ways things are? The “in-between” the dreams is really a fun place to be if you let it. I had so much fun pulling together items that would bring the focus directly to the table.
I grabbed my paints and gave my plain cornucopia a little oomph. Instead of using traditional fillers, I chose grasses. To get the “spilling effect” – I simply raised it up.
I used liquid gold leaf to add a little glamour and sparkle to the table by just painting ordinary candles with a haphazard look.
The little candleholders are not really candleholders at all. They are actually jars that held creamer from my husband’s grandfather’s restaurant (long gone) in Laguna. I drizzled a little hot glue in the bottom, allowed it to cool slightly then pressed the candle into the glue. Hitting on the idea when going through my hostess closet and opened the box they were placed in.
I went off the beaten path slightly here. The flower is actually a napkin ring and I slid a craft store greenery pick instead of a napkin. Repainted my chargers with matte metallic charcoal paint. For a pop of color- velvet ribbon did the trick. I added my little dollar pumpkins I painted a few years ago and voila! Cute table setting.
These started out completely green and I had a light bulb moment of adding a metallic pewter paint to create a faux shagreen texture. I love how the light creates different shades of color now. Thrilled with the way they turned out – tutorial coming soon!
I took a few liberties with these pumpkins, Ha! I was hankering for something different and they sure fit the bill now!
I’m so glad you stopped by to see the dining room and I hope these ideas inspire you to jump in and decorate your dining area too!

So creative, Joy! I love how you repurposed so many things for your dining room! Beautiful!
Thank you so much, Jen! It was fun reimagining. ?
Your dining room is styled to perfection for fall Joy! Those pumpkins are so amazing!
So kind of you to say, thank you! I love how a little paint can change anything. ?
Joy, you are so creative! Your home is beautiful and I love the fall colors that you have used. The pumpkins are gorgeous and I can’t wait for the tutorial. I have that dear but mine has white horns and I would have never thought to use it in a centerpiece. Great job!
Thanks my friend! I am giggling over the deer…he was up on a pedestal and I was brainstorming – trying different things and nothing was feeling right. I spotted the deer and thought, “why not?” and he actually looked cute tucked in the grass. ?
Your fall dining room looks lovely, Joy… and I love the idea you had with your vintage creamers from a relative that is no longer with you! They look great! Love the ‘pile’ of pumpkins, as well… so pretty and just a bit of ‘glam’! You definitely took the right ‘liberties’! 😉
Thank you friend! I have to admit, I was a little teary eyed adding them to the table. I know how much my husband so wanted to meet him in person but had to rely on precious stories. His grandfather was a prince of a man from what I little I have heard. ?
I love how your creativity shines through this room, Joy! You always dream up amazing ways to decorate and repurpose items like those creamer jars. It’s really inspiring, not to mention gorgeous! Happy Fall, my friend! I missed seeing your this year!
Crissy, thank you so much for the kind words. I never know what I am going to do reimagine things – I’m glad it all worked and finding the creamer jars was such a happy find in the closet! I was looking for regular candle holders but they are not where they are supposed to be. ? I guess it was fortuitous.
All of your painted pumpkins are just so adorable and creative. You always have the best tips Joy! Loving your new home!
