Fall Decorating in the Breakfast Nook

We’re sharing Fall Decorating in the Breakfast Nook Today!

As we fully embrace our Fall Monthly Bucket List Ideas and upcoming travel plans, it’s been fun to add fall touches around the house.

Fall Decorating in the Breakfast Nook with Roses and Pumpkins-The Crowned Goat

I know this time of year can be a bit hectic.

Especially, since we’re all getting back into the swing of things now that school is back in session and Labor Day has passed.

On one hand, you want a warm and welcoming fall home.

On the other, you might be doing well to get dinner on the table and homework finished.

Maybe you’re an empty nester and you’re wondering if you even need to decorate anymore.

No matter how you’re feeling this season, you can throw out the rules and expectations and decorate as much or as little as you want.

How to Set a Fall Tablescape with Pink Pumpkins-The Crowned Goat

Here’s a look at how we’ll be enjoying fall decorating in the breakfast nook this season…

Make it Easy by Choosing a Fall Decorating Theme, Color, or Flower:

The easiest way to start fall decorating in the breakfast nook, or any room really is to pick a theme, color, or flower.

This includes items you want to highlight like cotton, gourds, berry branches, pears, figs, apples, acorns, pumpkins, roses, mums, or dried grasses.

Next, decide what you want your color scheme to be.

We chose a pale dusty pink because it’s one of my favorite colors. And despite using it throughout the year, I’m just not quite ready to let it go yet 😉

Create a Simple Place Setting:

Once you have your color palette set, gather the items you need for each place setting.

We usually use a charger, a dinner plate, and a salad plate or bowl.

But you can use whatever you love and have on hand.

Layering linens is a really easy and inexpensive way to celebrate fall decorating in the breakfast nook because they add both color and texture to any place setting.

Add a Festive Centerpiece:

After you’ve taken care of each place setting, you’ll know how much room you have for centerpieces.

If you’re short on time or space consider filling a box, dough bowl, vase, or container with seasonal items.

You can pick up a mix of pumpkins and gourds at your local craft supply store or flowers from the market.

Decorate Your Coffee Bar:

Finally, if you’re breakfast nook is close to your kitchen or coffee bar, remember to decorate that space too.

It doesn’t have to be anything fancy at all!

Just a few stems or floral picks in a treasured vase, basket, or container using the same color scheme as your fall decorating in the breakfast nook table will do.

As I shared earlier, I completely understand schedules get hectic, and seasonal decorating can feel like a luxury.

There are no rules when it comes to being festive though.

So, create a space that makes you happy from minimal to extravagant, or somewhere in between, and live with what you love!

    1. Thanks so much, Donna! I don’t know what it is about pink but I just don’t seem to be able to quit that color at all. Plus the brown and white transferware is always fun to collect and display in different ways throughout the year and in different seasons too. Hope your fall is full of all good things, CoCo

  3. Coco,
    I just adore how you decorated this area!! So pretty and charming!!
    Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and for your kind comments…
    Stay safe, healthy and happy!!

    1. Such a sweet compliment, Deb, thank you so much. I really appreciate it! Heading over to see what you’ve been up to while we’ve been at the cabin and hope you have the best day, CoCo

  4. Your colors are just so peaceful and lovely CoCo! A sense of calm comes over me as I look at your beautiful photography 🥰 Pinned. And BTW, I feel like I’ve had a little mental health therapy session every time I read one of your posts! Thanks so much for sharing your wisdom 🥰

    1. Such sweet and kind words, Cindy, thank you! Embracing pink, and brown and white transferware this season has been so much fun. I’ve been using your fabulous tips and tricks to practice my photography skills and they help so much. For the longest time, I only used my first camera a Canon Rebel because I knew it well and felt confident. But I recently decided my amazing Canon 6D has been on the shelf far too long and your guidance makes me want to learn and practice more. I’m so thankful you share your best gifts with us so we can learn from you! Big hugs, CoCo

  5. Oh my goodness! I LOVE your brown transferware china. It is stunning! Using brown transferware is one of my favorite things to ” break out” for fall. It’s also fabulous that you incorporated the dusty pink. Thanks for sharing such a festive and beautiful table with us. Now I am inspired to go find my chargers . . . Pinned.

    1. Thank you so much, Anna! It has been really hard to find brown and white transferware down here lately so I’m thankful to have started this collection early. I still find a few pieces here and there which keeps me on the treasure trail hunt though. Brown and white and dusty pink are some of my favorite colors. I know a lot of people pair gray and white and pink together but there’s just something about trading the brown for the gray that feels warm and inviting. Can’t wait to see your chargers and your beautiful tablescape. Hugs, CoCo
