Fall + Table Roundup

September 9, 2019

Fall! My favorite time of year is right on Summer’s heals. Officially arriving Saturday, September 23rd this year. Here in Southern California we don’t get the dramatic changes in the weather like the East Coast and other parts of the country. Instead they are subtle changes, the light casts through our windows at just the right angle to create the perfect glow, and there is always promise of our best weather. Especially here in Santa Barara, September and October lead way to our Indian Summer.  The summer visitors have dissipated, and life tends to get back to routine. We still enjoy outdoor living, but maybe start to come inside a bit earlier. As outdoor entertaining starts to shift more to the indoors, I’ve rounded up a few of my current  favorites for your fall table just in time to celebrate the Fall Equinox.

fall table and entertaining roundup and sources

From top left corner:  The Woven Tule Love Seat from William Laman, I’m in love with the texture this piece brings! I’ve been dying to use a Tom Greene Brutalist light fixture in a project. If you are quick you can grab this one for your own from The Blue Door. I love using vintage paintings in my decor this Victor Di Gesu painting made the Chairish A-List, and I can’t resist the colors. Nothing warms up a space like candle light. The Church candles from Upstairs At Pierre Lafond in Montecito are a fall entertaining staple. Ok, so can I take a moment and just say that our little town of Carpinteria has produced some amazing artists and artisans, and I love that we have all grown up together. There is something in this valley! You will agree with me when you see these Rebekah Miles plates and her many other creations. Every table needs a great glass and these vintage Carlo Moretti wine glasses and champagne coupes from Chairish remind me of glasses my mom used to have. It’s always nice to have a connection with something in your home, even your glassware. If you haven’t figured out by now, I love to use vintage whenever possible. These 1960’s Arne Norell Safari Chairs are a classic that will never go out of style. I also like to mix seating up, and the leather of these chairs pairs so well with the woven love seat. We are so lucky to have some great vintage stores between Carpinteria, Summerland, and Santa Barbara. The Blue Door is one of my local favorites with finds like this Farm Table. Silver! Buy and use silver!!! The more you use it the better it looks, and it’s something you can pass down through generations. One of my favorite patterns of my mother’s collection is Georg Jensen’s Cactus sterling silver flatware. Add color and play with pattern with your napkins. I love anything hand made, raw edge, linen…these Block Print Napkins from Botanik help pull this whole look together. And one last piece from Rebekah Miles, because she is just that good and the fig serving platter reminds me of fall and my Noni’s dehydrated figs. 

 Enjoy the start of the fall season!
