Hey friends! Today I’m sharing how I styled my first outdoor tablescape! It’s not anything elaborate, but I’m craving simplicity this summer anyway so it’ll do!
Our outdoor table was another great Facebook Marketplace find. It was only $50 for the solid wood table and two benches. It needed some love, so I sanded it down and stained it, and I love how it turned out. I have a highlight saved under Outdoor Table on my Instagram if you want to see the transformation.
After making the table look pretty again, I knew I wanted to style it for a nice outdoor dinner. I simply took out some things I already had inside for a simple, neutral tablescape.
The white wood candlesticks were hand-me-downs from my mom and I added two white pillar candles from IKEA.
I brought out a jute runner and placemats from Hobby Lobby and some Rae Dunn plates. I added a clearance $1.50 geranium I planted in a concrete planter and that’s it!
I love having an outdoor space to style and dining al fresco is a must during the summer months. I can’t wait to share more outdoor tablescapes with you!

Fall is almost here! While it’s still hot in Indiana, I’m excited for sweater weather and a trip the pumpkin patch! Today I’d like to share with you how I created a budget-friendly, farmhouse fall tablescape.
I wanted to create a simple fall look with a vintage farmhouse feel. I gained ideas off of Pinterest and Instagram and knew I wanted to use antique candlesticks, white pumpkins, and eucalyptus. I planned on using green eucalyptus stems laid flat as a garland, but I changed my mind in the process.
When styling a space, I typically have an idea in mind and then adapt and change as I progress. I think it turns out better when you don’t have a clear picture of the end result. Going into decorating a space without perfection in mind always makes you happier when things are finished.
For my tablescape, I used a clearance jute table runner from Hobby Lobby that my mom gave to me. I was using a black and white buffalo check runner before but I knew that wouldn’t give that vintage look I was hoping for. I was thankful that my mom gave me this one. She’s the best!
I have also been slowly gathering brass candlesticks whenever I find them at my local Goodwill. I came across this set of six antique brass candlesticks for only $2.99! A complete set like this one can cost about $30-$50 at an antique shop, so these were a lucky find!
I placed some fake white pumpkins from Hobby Lobby along the centerpiece. These ones are only $1.80 each (40% off fall decor), so very affordable.
I also found these beautiful rust-colored eucalyptus stems from Joann Fabrics. They were on sale for $1.99 each and I used a 20% off coupon for entering my email online. I used 4 stems placed in an old galvanized container in the center of the table.
For the place settings, I didn’t change what I already had there. I used Rae Dunn plates, buffalo check napkins and white dinner plates from the Dollar Tree. The galvanized chargers are also from Hobby Lobby.
Overall, I’m happy with how my fall tablescape turned out. It was simple and inexpensive and gives off that vintage farmhouse look I was going for. It will be a perfect place to gather with family for dinner on chilly, fall evenings.
I hope you’ve enjoyed reading and I’ve inspired you in some way today. Remember, it doesn’t have to be perfect or expensive to be beautiful! For more home decor inspiration, be sure to follow me on Instagram @faith.and.farmhouse. God bless!
