Posh Purpose: Fall Luxe

Fall is my favorite season and I love to decorate the apartment, but I don't want to spend the money or time decorating once for Halloween and once again for Thanksgiving.  Instead, I love more of a fall luxe theme which can carry you from September 1st to Thanksgiving.  You can achieve a fall luxe look with by mixing textures and metallics with the occasional pumpkin thrown in.  Here's an inspiration board to get you started on creating your own fall luxe table:   

1. Williams-Sonoma Botanical Plates, 2. West Elm Gold Flatware Sets, 3. World Market Oversized Natural Herringbone Runner , 4. Williams-Sonoma Luster Amber Wine Glasses, 5. World Market Small Matte Metallic Pillar Candles, 6. World Market Green Pumpkin Ceramic Casserole Baker, 7. Pottery Barn Cast Leaf Serving Platter, 8.  World Market Gold Metallic Taper Candleholders, 9. Pottery Barn Cast Leaf Lidded Serving Bowl, 10.  World Market Natural Wood Base Glass Hurricane Holders, 11. World Market Driftwood Chargers

I'm obsessed with the Williams-Sonoma Botanical Plates!  I would rather have the Staub pumpkin cocotte, but this green casserole dish from World Market is a great substitution at a way more affordable price - on sale for $15.99!  I like the mix of modern elements (the candlestick holders and flatware) with natural elements (driftwood chargers, wooden candle holders, and leaf dishes) which keeps the table from looking overly modern or overly cottage-y.  As a bonus, the wood base hurricane holders and driftwood chargers could easily be reused for summertime entertaining and the gold flatware and taper candleholders will transition through to Christmas and New Years.

Anyone else have any fall tables to share?  Send them our way and we may feature them on the blog!
