I can’t believe that it is October already.
October to me means it’s really fall. Like, we are most definitely completely and fully submersed in Autumn.
There’s very little chance of enjoying any randomly hot-summer-like-days for the next few months.
The leaves are all turning. And we might even have to start raking soon.
Oh ya, that too. It’s nearly time for Halloween.
But before that… it’s time for Thanksgiving in our neck’o’the woods. And getting our dining room ready for the most thankful-of-holidays is a big highlight of the month.
This year I kept our dining room decor pretty simple with my favourite aqua glass vases, a mix of plaid and fur table runners; and some blue painted pumpkins.
Come on in for the full tour!
Our table and chairs are definitely the central feature of our dining room.
My Dad built our dining table modelling it after this one, using these table legs from Osborne Wood Products. I am working on creating digital plans for this table so I can share the DIY tutorial with y’all.
While the dining table is definitely the centerpiece of our dining room, I have to say my pew is another favourite piece. I love-love-love it… and even though I sometimes considering painting it I have so far kept it in it’s original wood finish…
The gallery wall of vintage paintings I shared all the details about here.
I made this simple little PineCone and PomPom garland a couple of years ago and it’s still one of my faves for the fall and winter…
The Japanese Maple that sits in front of our living room window provided me with the greenery for our dining room… it’s amazing how long these beautiful leaves last in water… I rounded out the table with a strip of plaid fabric left over from making the plaid pillow covers in our living room; and topped that with a piece of fun fur that I bought at a local fabric store last Christmas season.
This faux fig is a fave as well – and frankly, I decided to go faux because I don’t have a great track record with indoor plants.
My little DIY blue and white crackle glaze pumpkins…
I shared our dining room console table a couple of weeks ago along with some free printable Fall art...
I picked these white drapes at HomeSense a couple of weeks ago and I am loving how open and bright they make our living/dining room feel. I think I’ll go back to my blue patterned ones for spring/summer but I’m excited about how well these white ones will pair with my Christmas decor this year!
And that light fixture?!?
I love it but I have some other plans in the works….

Next week I will share some more details about how our kitchen is looking for fall!
