I love fall, don’t you?

The air is crisp and cool.

It’s fire pit season.

We love all the cozy things, like throw blankets, warm sweaters, and everything pumpkin spice. Am I right?

But it’s also a wonderful time to regroup with family and friends after a fun summer of vacations, backyard barbecues, and family fun.

With our new home, I am enjoying having friends and family over to celebrate all the things.

We’ve spent a lot of time in the potager garden dining al fresco. But now I’m excited to bring things back indoors in our new dining room.

Cause dining under that crystal chandelier is everything! It just makes my heart sing.

If you recall, we updated it last year removing the upholstered walls and painting over the textured, faux finish ceiling.

But I digress.

With the holidays quickly approaching, I’m looking for fresh ideas to design beautiful fall tablescapes.

Are you seeking some autumn inspiration too?
