Our dining room is the room on the first floor that still needs the most work. It was part of our major first floor remodel a year ago and is the one room that wasn’t finished. The room is still missing trim and baseboard, and the cabinets on the top of the wall of built-ins.
Even though this room isn’t complete, I still really wanted to carry my fall decorating into the space. I focused on the table mostly because we don’t have a lot of furniture in this room. A mix of faux flowers and real pumpkins creates a simple and neutral centerpiece for our very large farmhouse table.

To create this look I used a neutral table runner as my base. I used this one.
I folded my garland in half to make it look more full and then placed it on top of the table runner in the center of my table. Then using a few small pumpkins and gourds in similar colors I placed them randomly around the outside filling in anywhere that felt a little empty.
On the buffet I kept things simple with a few real pumpkins and fall garland that I’m still fussing with because I can’t make it laythe way I want it. This space is still a work-in-progress but for now, these fall touches add just enough to fit in with the rest of the house.
