14 Ideas for a Rustic Fall Table

These past couple of years have been busy ones for me. The boys were so dependent on my husband and I which left little time for much else. We were consumed with diapers, baths, meals, and more. Of course we made time for family and friends too, but we noticed that things got really crazy around the holidays. Needless to say, I didn't do much decorating and I certainly didn't do any homemade/crafty decorating either. BUT I did dream about my options... on pinterest. Stocked the ideas up and saved them for another year. Maybe, just maybe, I'll do something pretty to my table this year. 

Here are some of my favorite pins for a pretty fall table. I love the non-traditional stuff, and the little creative ideas that give the look a little flair. 



I love the mix of textures in this one. And I especially like how the little twigs are protruding out. The lively leaves are also a nice, non-traditional touch.

The pop of green color from the apples is amazing and so unexpected. I love how they are sitting up on that wood block. Another bonus is that it's easy to see over.

Loving the fruit & the pretty slab of wood everything rests on. Just gorgeous!

Again, protruding twigs... Love that this whole look is in a charming rustic box.

Another charming, rustic box. These make for quick, easy removal if necessary for space at dinner.

Ooo la la. Rustic modern? Not sure, but I like this one! I think I'd pair it with more than just the stick, but I'm digging this unique idea.

Wouldn't this be charming with your company's name on it?

Holy moly! This one is so fabulous. The teal blue colored table cloth underneath is the perfect compliment to the traditional fall colored flowers. I'm in love.

How about this for rustic? So charming!
And the ruffles on this table runner! SO PRETTY!

This one isn't so "rustic" but I do like the idea of filling those cheap dollar store vases with items relevant to the occasion. I've done this during the Christmas season, filling them up with ornaments, but never for fall. Maybe this year.

This is seriously so cool. I think this could easily be made with a larger sized drill bit. I could see this dressed up for Christmas as well.

This next one is a clever use of drink and wine glasses. Not to mention the wink and nod to fall with the dry corn as a filler. I also like the subtle touch of plaid ribbon running throughout.

And lastly, I LOVE the use of white! It's so pure and clean. I also think it will go with your existing decor since it's so neutral. Sticking with one tone of color is another unexpected idea.

So, there you have it. Some eye candy that I have been drooling over from pinterest. We shall see what I come up with. Let the fall festivities begin... but not before I have my first cup of hot apple cider. Head for that now! :)
