Enjoy the cool, crisp fall weather with an outdoor dining experience! This outdoor fall tablescape would be perfect for Thanksgiving or any autumn celebration.

When hayneedle first approached me about creating an outdoor fall tablescape in our new outdoor dining space, I had visions of hot chocolate, warm crackling flames, and fuzzy blankets available for snuggling…
Clearly, I forgot that I live in central Texas.
Now to be fair, if I actually had set this table up for our Thanksgiving meal, there’s about a 50/50 chance that would be an accurate depiction… There’s also a 50/50 chance it would be hot as blazes. Oh well.
Since I set it up mid-September so I could share pictures with you all long in advance of your own Thanksgiving table decorating (oh the things we crazy bloggers do!), it was officially 99 degrees.
But I’ll pretend if you will… 😉 I’ll pretend that these sweet apples were picked straight from the nearby orchard and converted into candles (learn how to make your own here if you’d like).
I’ll pretend that a cool breeze played over our faces and legs, making these cozy blankets the perfect, enveloping comfort.
I’ll pretend that the leaves have already fallen from most of the trees and these adorable succulent pumpkins are an invigorating drop of life amidst this season.
I’ll pretend that the flaming table is actually providing more than mere ambiance (which, let’s be honest, is enough in and of itself)…
And likewise, I’ll pretend that the candles are giving not only their soft, dreamy light, but also a degree of warmth to the space.
I really do love the idea of outdoor fall dining. When celebrating goodness, provision, and harvest, it only seems an appropriate setting…
Even if you have to jump in the pool to cool off afterwards. 😉
Here are a few more shots of the space…
How about you? Is outdoor fall an option where you are?
