If you’re coming by from Libbie at A Life Unfolding, I’m so happy to welcome you into my home.

I’m a native Texan with a passion for crafting, decorating, and cooking. I’m also a mom of twin boys, so my life is filled with soccer, scouts, and music lessons too! You can read more about my story here.

Now, let’s get started, shall we?

Fall Table Decor in the Dining Room

The first room you’ll see when you enter my home is the dining room. It happens to be across from my office, so I spend a lot of time looking at this space.

I love setting a pretty table to celebrate the seasons. Go ahead, and have a seat!

This year, I decided to keep things simple. I’m using the same woven placemats I shared in my spring table decor. They’re like the table decor version of a little black dress.

I started with minimal decor on the sideboard until I “lived” with the room for a while. I’ll share more about what I ended up with below.

Place Setting with Dried Orange Slices

My new obsession is dried orange slices. I have a thing for dried flowers, so it was only a matter of time before the oranges had a turn. “Pick me! Pick me!” they said.

The pop of orange against our wedding china adds a simple touch of charm.

Easy Dried Orange Slices

Learn how to make dried orange slices with just an oven and a few hours at home.

These simple accents are perfect for decorating from fall to Christmas.

I paired the orange slices with white faux pumpkins and faux olive stems. (I’m known to pull the leaves off a faux branch when I need quick greenery. Wish me luck trying to put them back on later!) Sprigs of rosemary would have worked also.

Fall Dough Bowl Centerpiece

The dough bowl is the star of the show in my fall table decor.

This is a recent purchase that will last me through many seasons. It’s 37″ long, so I can fit lots of goodies inside. Maybe I’ll even make a giant loaf of bread someday!

Fall table centerpiece with pumpkins, greenery and acorns

For the dough bowl centerpiece, I repurposed some olive branch stems that usually live in a vase. Then I layered in a variety of pumpkins, acorns, and orange slices, of course.

I especially love the glow of the hurricane candlelight on the centerpiece.

Tiered Tray Decor

Remember my sparsely decorated sideboard from above? I finally decided to add a few items, like this tiered tray.

Carrying through the oranges, faux pumpkins, and acorns allowed me to complement the fall table decor.

Fall Vintage Botanical Printable Art

To balance out the other side, I added one of my fall vintage botanical prints.

I have six different botanical printables, and they are a “freebie” perk for my newsletter subscribers.

I’m so glad you stopped by, I’m sending you a virtual slice of pecan pie!

  1. Hello – can you plz let me know where you purchased your dough bowl.
    I understand it’s 37″ but I can’t seem to find this exact one. Also,
    where did you find your wicker placements?
    I would love it if you could share where you purchased all your finds –
    you have a great eye. Thx

    1. Thanks so much for the kind words, Laura! Everything should be linked where you see “Shop this Look” in the article. Let me know if for some reason that is not showing up for you. These are the placemats I used: https://rstyle.me/+S1ZP04q21n7iHzaCxVyDPA?__cid=1152. The dough bowl was purchased at a local home decor store, so there’s not a specific brand for that. I did link a few options that are similar, like this one: https://rstyle.me/+HFTz32INxXa_pAS_3039nw?__cid=1152. If you can’t find a large enough bowl, you can always skip the bowl and just add some faux greenery around some oversized pumpkins with candles mixed in. I hope this helps! -Crissy

  2. So many favorites. That soup terrain is beautiful! Love the pomegranate stem. (Great addition for me) I saved the printables! (Can’t wait to incorporate them) Thank you for always sharing your creative talent! 👏

    1. Thanks so much, Jan! Your kind comments are always so appreciated. I’m glad you’re saving the printables. They are fun to sprinkle into your decor and don’t break the bank either. I hope you have a wonderful start to fall!

    1. Thanks, Cindy! You’d love the vintage-ness of this dough bowl. I instantly fell in love with it. Thanks for dropping by with such a sweet comment. Happy Fall!

  3. Crissy, your fall table is gorgeous! Everything is styled so beautifully! The dough bowl is the star of the table with the combination of textures and colors! It is always a treat to hop with you!

    1. Thanks very much, Lynne! I’m so glad we could hop together again. I enjoyed your tour as well and hope you’re enjoying some crisp fall weather in your neck of the woods. Hugs, Crissy

  4. Loved your dining room Crissy with all it’s beautiful fall color. The table looks perfect and oh my golly, I need to dry some oranges slices! I bet that smells aaahhmazing! Do you keep your seasonal table set all the time? Like with place settings done too? We can’t because our dining table seems to be a catch-all for Amazon and Fed Ex. :/ Rude.

    And forget the virtual slice of pie. I’ll send you my address. Always love touring with you. Thanks for all the prayers for Will. He’s hanging in there. Sorry I’m late to the party too. Pinned

    1. Thank you so much, Cindy! Yes, I could totally picture you decorating with dried orange slices in all sorts of adorable ways! They are really fun to sprinkle around.

      Yes, for now I’ll keep my table set, BUT you should see the sides of the rooms not pictured! I have photography equipment and crafting supplies galore. You’re not alone in the dining room becoming a catch-all for all the things. LOL! Always love touring with you too, and I’m still praying for a swift recovery for Will. Big hugs!

  5. Your fall table decor is stunning Crissy! The new dough bowl filled with fall goodies adds so much interest. I especially love the white pumpkin and dried orange slice on the plates. It really pops each place setting. So pretty, I’d love to share your post on my weekly wrap-up this weekend.

    1. Thanks so much, Kim! And thanks for including me in your weekly wrap-up! I look forward to checking that out. It’s always fun to do these hops with you and seeing your gorgeous PNW decor, too!

    1. Ha ha! I hadn’t thought about how those oranges do add a little pumpkin color to the plates. I love that I can use them all the way to Christmas. Thanks for stopping by, Lora!

  6. I love all your pretty fall touches and the way you reuse items! I have a set of chargers that I use every season.
    The dried orange slices are such a fun pop of color. I think I’m going to make some this weekend. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks so much, Leen! I’m really trying to reuse items and repurpose them when I can. I think it does readers a service, too. Plus, extra stuff means extra storage required! I hope you have fun making some orange slices. Happy to be touring with you again!

    1. Aren’t little botanicals so fun? They are great for filling in on bookshelves or side tables. Thank you for stopping by, Jennifer! Always fun to hop with you!

  7. Where did you get (or make) the pomegranate arrangement in the crock on your sideboard? I especially love the view of it from the perspective of your office!
    Thanx, Sharon

    1. Hi Sharon. Thank you! I bought the pomegranate stems at Pottery Barn, but they were from last year and started selling out this year. You might be able to still find them by calling a local store to check their inventory across stores. (Any store can ship to you when they are out online.) I also linked to some similar stems in my post after researching several sites. I hope that helps! Thanks, Crissy

  8. Crissy I loved your Fall decor! You have such a beautiful style and I love the rattan chargers you used On your table (aka the little black dress)! Such a fun tour and beautiful as always . Thanks for joining me this week! Pinned!

    1. Thank you, Kelly! And thanks especially for hosting this hop for us. You are the hostess with the mostest! I’m impressed you were able to coordinate all of this after shortly moving into a new home. I’m always thrilled to join you. Happy Fall, my friend!

  9. Girl… I LOVE your fall dining room and table decor! Those pomegranate stems are gorgeous, and your tiered tray is so pretty, too! I’m gonna start looking locally for a pretty and LARGE dough bowl. 😉 Pinned!

    1. Thank you so much, Julie! Yes, I think there are some good opportunities to scout for dough bowls locally. It’s one item that I’ll get a lot of mileage out of, so I figured I’d go big with it. I’m a big fan of shopping the end-of-season sales, as I did for those pomegranate stems last year! Hugs!

  10. I love your fall table, Crissy! The way you included the oranges is such a fun and unique idea, and a great way to bring in those classic colors of fall. Happy to be touring with you this week. Pinned!

    1. Happy to tour with you again, too, Jen! Yes, the orange slices are such a simple thing, but they’re really fun to use as decor. Thank you for stopping by and pinning too, my friend!

    1. Thank you, Annmarie! Aren’t those chargers and napkins great? I originally thought I’d just use them for spring, but I’m enjoying them for a lighter side of fall. Thank you for pinning!

  11. Hi Crissy,

    Love your centerpiece. I love dried oranges and they are fun to make. The smell is amazing isn’t.

    They add a natural look to your centerpiece with the pumpkins! Pinned

    1. Thank you, Cindy! Yes, it’s wonderful when you can add a bit of nature to decor and have it smell nice, too. Thanks for pinning! I enjoyed hopping with you.

  12. Lovely dough bowl Crissy and such a great size for your long table. The arrangement is so pretty as well as the one on your buffet. I love the faux pomegranates and how pretty they look reflected in the mirror. Gorgeous table as always!

    1. Thank you, Michelle! This was a fun one to put together. I really enjoyed your tour as well and walked away with so much inspiration. I love seeing how everyone makes their home cozy and beautiful in a unique style!

  13. Crissy, your table and centerpiece are just charming! I enjoyed using dried oranges in my holiday decor last year from fall through the winter, and I just dried my first batch for this year. Aren’t they wonderful? I love the way you used them in your place settings. Pinned! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

    1. Cecilia, aren’t dried oranges so fun?! I love that we can use them from fall to winter. Budget-friendly decor! It was so fun hopping with you again. I enjoyed your tour as well and look forward to the next one! Hugs, Crissy

    1. Thank you, Jennifer! I’m so happy it’s fall and we can break out all the cozy details. I hope you have a wonderful season. Happy to hop with you again! -Crissy

    1. Thank you, Paula! The table is set for fall, so let’s hope cooler weather comes my way next. I’m always happy to be touring with you again, my friend. Next time, I promise I’ll have a spoon at your place setting! 😉
