Farmhouse Fall Dining Room Decor – Navy and Copper Pumpkins! fall farmhouse dining room decor

As I shared on Instagram, what’s a vintage harvest table over 150 years old without a harvest?! A PUMPKIN harvest, that is, complete with antique copper “pumpkins,” to boot!  When I was dreaming up this year’s fall looks, I was not only inspired by the ceramic white and navy handles on my vintage copper pots, which led to the navy and copper combo, but I was also intrigued by the history of our “new” dining room table. The previous owner’s family passed it down for generations over 150 years, and it was legit used as a harvest table…hence the term! The family would bring in the season’s crops, dump them on the table to be chopped and sorted, and you can see all of the knife marks and scuffs all over the table top. It’s just full of history, so I wanted to sort of emulate the feel of a pumpkin harvest, trailing vines and all. ❤️ Y’all know I love vintage pieces with a story, and it thrills me to no end to know the history of this harvest table. 😊 vintage farm farmhouse harvest table fall decor blue hand lettered pumpkins copper decor fall table setting blue copper decor

This copper and navy fall decor look wouldn’t have come together without the help of Caroline from Papercase Studio and her adorable hand-lettered pumpkins [HERE] and gourd place cards [HERE]!  She and I had been dreaming up this concept for months, and it was so exciting to put her pumpkins and place cards on the fall table and on the vintage mantle.  Totally finished out the room!  Check out her adorable Etsy shop along with the limited edition navy Cotton Stem Pumpkin [HERE]!! fall farmhouse dining room decor blue vintage fireplace mantle fall decor

Throw in a chippy door, that sweet farmhouse wood sign from The Found Cottage, a couple of custom blue pumpkin pillows from Porter Lane Home [HERE], plus a very fitting sign above the fireplace from Dry Land Decor…and the room is complete and ready for the coming of fall.  Think cooler temps will arrive quicker now that the INside of the house feels like autumn has arrived…? 😉

Appreciate you guys stopping by, and let me know what you think of the pumpkin “harvest” concept and all the rest down below in the comments!  Love chatting with you here as I can.  You guys make this a happy place! 💙

    Stunning!! Maybe I over looked it but where are the leaf plates from? Loving the copper– do u think the copper would look ok if I have grey tones in my home? I love it I just didn’t know if it would look good with the cooler color.

    Wow. You really outdid yourself here my friend. I just love the color combination and those books are simply brilliant. Copper was such a great idea and I love that I am now seeing it everywhere! You are such a trendsetter. I am in awe.

    I don’t actually, but this is just pine underlayment cut into 8in strips and we didn’t use spacers to create a really rustic look!

    I love your style! I appreciate your honesty when it comes to your posts and blog in regards to having kiddos, and that the house isn’t always perfect 24/7. Oh, and thank you for not decorating with all white, too much of that on IG lol 😂! ❤️

    I love to style a space as IF the kids/kittens won’t zoom in and mess with all the things. Snap a pic or two…and then move a few things around to make it a bit more kid-friendly. 😉 Hey, a girl can dream, right?! 😂

    This is a mix of really pale grey/blue as a base with a mix of creamy white, and then it has two vintage star burst looking sections that have a really deep dark teal, almost navy in places. It’s seriously the colors on my table!

    Lovely! I have a gray and white living room with copper as my metal. I’ve added touches of turquoise for summer but now adding navy and light green for fall. Funny how the Target 🎯 Dollar spot had the same idea for colors this season. Love your blog.

    It’s beautiful Erin! You’re so talented! Where did you get your greenery? It looks nicer than the stuff that my Hob Lob carries. I’ve been in search of some good greenery!

    It’s actually all from Hobby Lobby! Won’t let me link stuff from there at the bottom, so I tried to find other similar options.
