Cozy Dining Essentials for Fall

As many of you have seen by my Pinterest, I’m having a blast planning out my fall decorations post-move. Today’s post is all about the most used room in your house during the holidays: the dining room! Take a look below at some fabulous finds that work with any budget and that you can tailor to your own personal style!


Your fall dining essentials should include:

  • chargers
  • complete dining sets (whether you build them yourself or buy a pre-made set like the one above)
  • water glasses
  • flatware
  • napkins
  • napkin rings
  • a pitcher
  • decorative plates
  • a serving dish
  • place card holders
  • place mats
  • a cake plate
  • serving set (salad server pictured)
  • salt and pepper shakers
  • a runner
  • a few glimmery pieces to make your table festive

You can add to or take away from this list, but if you have these pieces, you’ll be set for whatever the holidays throw at you.

I love incorporating fresh flowers (or pumpkins!) in my tablescapes as well, but it’s up to you to put it all together! If you’re looking for an everyday look, try the charger, dinner plate, flatware, and water glass for the bare essentials. If you want something over-the-top, add the shimmery runner and place mats instead of the charger, dot a few pumpkins around on the table, and add wine glasses and place cards to add to the elegance of the event.

Have fun putting your dining table together and enjoy the upcoming holidays!
