Fall Tablescape Challenge
I am part of a fabulous group of party stylists and planners on Facebook. A smaller group of us decided it would be fun to have a Fall tablescape challenge and share each other’s work in a blog hop!
The table had to include 5 items; pumpkin(s), apple(s), a red wagon, wheat stalks, and a wooden sign. BUT, the table could not cost more than $25 to style!
I was able to create my table for about $10.
I spent $5 on mini pumpkins and Elf House gourds from the pumpkin patch at my church, and $4 for a small bouquet of flowers from the grocery store. Everything else on the table I already owned.
I styled my table outside on our large farm house table. (My husband and I made it for about $100 in just a few hours and it is 8′ long!) I used a large muslin quilt as the table cloth and a red paisley sheet as the runner for a pop of color. At the end of the table, I put a tow behind wagon my dad refinished for my son and filled it with mini hay bales and a few pumpkins. Next to the wagon, I put our new scrap wood chalk board. (If you follow me on Instagram, you got a sneak peek of it on Saturday) I thought it needed to be up higher on the table, so I put a small wooden box under it, and then added some candles and pumpkins in front of it. I propped the wagon trailer on a small galvanized pail, and added a few pumpkins around it. I love my white washed lantern, and I thought the end of the table needed to be lightened up little, so I added that as well. Finally, I grabbed a log from our fire wood pile to fill in a hole between the wagon, the lantern, and the box.
Speaking of firewood, the hubs and I were fortunate enough to get about six 7′ logs free this week, so I asked him to cut off a few wood disks for me to use on the table. I laid them down the center of the table. The two middle ones held the drink bottles and small bouquet. The bouquet was in a plastic trick or treat pumpkin bucket that I covered in FloraCraft burlap. (I sprayed adhesive on strips of the burlap and stuck them to the pumpkin, 5 minutes and $5) The other two disks had small pumpkins and apples on them.
