Bringing Nature to the Table this Fall

Every year I always look forward to fall arriving. Don’t get me wrong – I love every minute of the long days of summer, but as the days get shorter and there is a crispness in the air, I start turning my focus inward to our home.

Most Sunday mornings my family and I walk to our local farmer’s market for fresh fruits and vegetables. With the change of season we started to see apples making it to the market. A few weekends ago we decided to switch it up a bit and go to an apple orchard instead. Bringing home a crate of apples motivated me to create a new tabletop for my dining room that celebrates the arrival of the new season.

I teamed up with Target Style to use their new collection of fall inspired items for the table. When I think of fall I have images of richer tones, more texture, and definitely delicious baking from the bounty of apples. I knew I wanted to find copper and metal tones along with wicker and wood to warm up my dining room. I found more than I could ever have hoped for – pounded metal bowls and vases, plates and bowls with a muted copper rim, a wooden bowl to display the apple crisp, and gold votives to light up the table. I usually love all-white flowers, but in the spirit of autumn I chose deep maroon flowers, hops, branches with small red berries and a few white flowers.

The result had me giddy for the season that is upon us in a few short days. In our On the Menu post tomorrow Amanda will share her delicious apple crisp recipe that was inspired by this tabletop. It will definitely help you to bring in the new fall season.
