Create traditional Fall decor this Autumn while coordinating non-traditional elements like Gingham and Stripes into your design. Keep reading as I share some of the ways I coordinated traditional and not so traditional components in my Fall porch and tablescape decor to create an overall cohesive look outside and inside my home. The best part – I sent at max – may $110 on both designs. Shout out to Amazon, Micheals and Hobby Lobby for those 60% off sales, oh and to Target for their $1 section!

In the event that you somehow missed the memo Fall is my absolute favorite time of year. My husband and I got married in the Fall, October 13, 2019 marks 5 years. We purchased our home last year and I had just enough time to decorate for Fall but only on the porch. This year I brought the party inside to our dining room table. Of course, no one sits at this particular table, but that’s besides the point. {Insert husband’s rolling eyes here}.

You don’t normally see the color black utilized in Fall decor and you definitely don’t normally see the infamous Gingham black and white checkerboard element. I decided to use both in this year’s Fall decor on the porch and on the dining room table with an addition of my absolute favorite decor color – GOLD! By incorporating several gold, black, orange and Gingham touches to the decor I was instantly able to coordinated non-traditional touches with an overall traditional design.

I pretty much replicated the gold, orange and black and white Gingham design on the dining room tablescape. The most noticeable change is the addition of the orange and white stripes with the “Thankful” runner. I found the black vase that was used for the centerpiece in my hubby’s apartment when we were dating and loved it. Turns out that it belongs to my mother-in-law. I wonder if she misses it? All of the details are coordinated around the words “Grateful”, “Thankful”, and “Blessed”. One thing that I have to note because I felt like a total DIY BADASS when I saw the finished products; the “napkins” are just Gingham fabric, purchased from Hobby Lobby, that I cut and pressed and sewed into folded napkins. 2 yards of fabric was about $6 and I was able to use the fabric for pillow covers on the porch as well.

If you would like to see the before, during and after, I have videos of the fall porch and tablescape transformation on my IG Video via @CoordinatedLifestyle.

I am slowly building up my holiday decor arsenal. All of the items pictured are either from Target, Home Goods, At Home, Home Scents, TJ Maxx, Hobby Lobby or Big Lots. If you would like the details on any particular item please feel free to comment below!

So…quick question? How soon after Thanksgiving are we allowed to begin decorating the house Christmas? Asking for myself.

Happy Fall Ya’ll!
