Fall Table Decor

fall table decor featuring a chevron bean table runner

Autumn seems like a time for relaxation. The cooler weather forces an end to the constant outdoor activity but it is before the bustle of Christmas. Fall is a time to just let it go. Therefore my table is simple, clean, and easy.

The main show piece is a chevron table runner made from beans (click here for the tutorial).

See I can have a serious craft post from time to time.

The centerpiece is an assortment of carved wooden fruit. My grandparents lived for a time in Thailand, and brought back and assortment of hand carved furnishings and decor. I managed to snag a double set of the fruit. So much cooler than old-school wax ones.

Simple wooden bowls and green accents match the runners. Perfect from the green transition of summer to the ruddy browns of fall.

  3. That table runner reminds me of HGTV’s Design Star (or whatever they call it now). Once a season they send them to a random store and make them decorate a white room with stuff they buy there. I am pretty sure someone made a bean rug one year. I am excited to see how you made it.

  9. What a unique and beautiful table runner. Can’t wait to learn how you did it. Hope you share tips on how to store it when fall is over.

    1. I didn’t give instructions for keeping it. But basically you can make a large roll and store it someplace DRY. Just like glitter some of the beans will shed but I just kinda knocked them back into place after unrolling. Thank you for taking the time to comment!
