I recently added fall style in the dining room using touches of blue, white and copper.
It is no great secret that I love to entertain. Creating pretty tablescapes, serving delicious food and making guests feel welcome in my home is enjoyable and fulfilling. I often say that I would much rather cook for 20 people than for 2. Even though I have a small dining space, it doesn’t hinder me from doing what I love. Here is how I added fall style in the dining room using blue, white and copper.
The table centerpiece is the star of the show. When guests arrive I like to have the table set and ready to go. I like to display a large centerpiece that can be easily moved right before dinner is served. For this pretty display I started with a vintage soup tureen. I simply added glass jars filled with water to the inside of the tureen. Next, I went out into my yard and started taking clippings of seasonal limbs and herbs:
- maple leaves
- purple salvia
The herbs look natural as they trail out of the tureen onto white pumpkins.
Nothing new was purchased for this fall dining room decor. When thinking of style and color palette I head to my dish pantry and tablecloth drawer. You know how I love to mix and match. This lovely Ralph Lauren paisley blue tablecloth was a $7.00 clearance sale score at HomeGoods.
Copper is one of my favorite metals. Honestly I love all of the finishes whether it is new, vintage or hammered. Copper blends and pairs well with gold, brass, silver and aluminum too.
As soon as I opened the pantry I spotted these beauties. Moscow Mule mugs are perfect for seasonal cocktails like Jenn’s Holiday Moscow Mule.
I also used the DIY copper mercury candleholders and votives that I made a couple of years ago. They really make the table glow.
Freshly baked cracked wheat bread right out of the oven. Delicious way to start a meal. Even better when it is slathered with butter. We all know calories don’t count when you’re with friends 🙂
Subtle Fall touches were added to the sideboard.
Vintage French copper pots and DIY chinoiserie pumpkins are the new additions.
You don’t need to add a lot to imbue seasonal style.
Just a little is all you need to signal that a new season is in the house.
Suggestions for adding fall style in the dining room

See how pretty the glow of candlelight makes the table look? It also makes your guests look the same way too – or maybe it’s the wine LOL. Who doesn’t appreciate looking better? I know that I do!
Anyway…I hope that you enjoyed how I brought fall style in the dining room using blue white and copper. What are you decorating your home with?
