Hi! This is Lauren from Mom Home Guide. Today I am sharing how I decorated my living room’s console table for fall.

I love decorating my living room’s console table! The console table was an unfinished shaker-style table that I bought online. I stained the top of the table in a dark walnut color and painted the legs a cheery yellow!

I like to use the console table for seasonal decorations. I am always changing the table’s decor! For this year’s fall decor, I filled a glass case with brightly colored candy corn and gummy worms. I then added some faux flowers in yellow and white to the vase, and my simple fall centerpiece was complete! (I wrapped the faux flowers in plastic wrap to keep the candy clean so my kids could later eat the candy!)

On top of the table, I stretched a length of orange burlap ribbon and added a length of glittery orange ribbon on top. I love how the orange looks against the walnut stain of the table! To the left of the centerpiece I placed a grapevine wreath that I wrapped with a long piece of orange chevron wired ribbon for extra fall color.

After that, I added  a yellow lantern I already had, and pumpkins that I picked up at the dollar store. Most of my decor was from the dollar store (except the vase that I already had, and the candy that I bought elsewhere.) This was an inexpensive project! After my kids ate some of the candy — it’s hard to resist candy corn — I switched out the candy corn vase and added a blue ceramic owl lantern. I collect owls — they are a symbol for my alma mater, Bryn Mawr College. Plus, I think the owl lantern adds an extra fall touch! Happy fall, everyone!

Don’t you just love how cheery Lauren’s console table looks? I love that candy corn centerpiece idea. 🙂
I hope to catch you back here tomorrow to see how my friend  Carrie of Curly Crafty Mom decorated her porch for fall! P.S. It’s adorable! – Tee
