Nostalgic Fall Decorating + Video

Nostalgic fall decorating in the dining room creates the perfect ambiance!

Nothing is more cozy and nostalgic than fall for me. Summer is officially over here in Vancouver and this week has been raining like crazy so it was very easy for me to decorate for fall.

Today I’m joining the Styled + Set Fall Home Style tour hosted by my friend Lory of Designthusiasm so be sure to visit all the tours at the end of this post. If you’re coming here from Sheila of Maison de Cinq, welcome! Doesn’t she have a beautiful home?

Setting the table

In setting the dining room table to feel nostalgic and cozy, I started with a large tablecloth.

I found these pretty amber mason jars at our local Safeway of all places. They were the perfect vessel for holding a candle. I also found them here.

There is nothing like a warm bowl of soup in the fall! As soon as this photo shoot was done, we immediately dug in and we also added grilled cheese sandwiches to our delicious meal.

The green napkins were passed down from my family, giving the nostalgic feeling.

The faux floral arrangement

These light brown fall leaves I found at Michael’s and the faux eucalyptus and berries I found at a local shop here in North Vancouver.

And they look so beautiful in the crock (I am slightly obsessed with crocks and have a big collection of them!)

In my effort of decluttering around the house, I’ve been slowly removing stuff from the dining room bookshelf. My painted heirloom pumpkins fit perfectly on the bookshelf and added a cozy feeling to the space

The woven placemats added rustic texture to the table and look so good against the white tablecloth.

The room feels warm and cozy watching the rain come down outside the patio door windows. With the days getting shorter and busier, it feels so relaxing to enjoy each other’s company at the table.

I hope you enjoyed my nostalgic fall dining room. Now be sure to visit my friend Jennifer’s beautiful home from Town and Country Living.

  1. Oh Jamie the simple and rustic fall elegance of your tablescape really appeals to me! I love the colors you have used. Beautiful and elegant as always. The soup looks delish!

    I would be delighted if you would share this post over at Thursday Favorite Things this week and also at a new Home Decor link party I am co-hosting, All About Home. It runs Monday at 7:00 p.m.EST-Thursday at midnight.

    I am trying so hard to get all the fall feels, but it is still unseasonably hot, in the high 90’s and super humid here in Kentucky! Hopefully cooler temps will arrive next week with the official arrival of fall on the calendar.

  2. Jamie I just love your version of fall – soft and subtle with so much pretty texture ! And how cute are those Mason jars?! I can’t believe you got them at Safeway! (and by the way, I’m In LOVE with your flatware!!)

    Happy fall to you my friend:)
