Casual and Elegant Dining by the Fireplace

Forget the T.V. trays, my friends! Eating in the living room has never been better!

Next time you want to end the evening with some coffee, dessert or just a small bite, make it special  by arranging an indoor picnic. Set up a casual, yet pulled together table setting on your coffee table right in the middle of your living room! 

Start a warm fire, turn on some candles and set some pillows on the floor for some comfy seating. Layer a soft throw over your coffee table for some added softness and you have yourself a casual, warm and inviting area that makes you want to share a meal snuggled up with someone special. 

A simple arrangement  of grasses clipped from my yard adds some nice, autumnal color.

I made napkin rings by using the same blades of grass from my centerpiece

I used a soft throw blanket as a table runner

Use pillows to keep your tush from going numb...

These wooden coasters add to the "fall vibe". You can find similar ones HERE.

Now that Fall has arrived, most of us will be indoors where we can stay warm and cozy. Take advantage of that and gather around your fireplace to enjoy a small meal! And if you don't have a fireplace, then you can get the same effect by dimming the lights in your home and lighting some candles around your living room. 

Also, I recommend that you invest in some dimmers for your lamps. Dimming the lights is a quick way to set the mood in your home. You can find some simple tabletop dimmers HERE. You simply plug your lamps into the dimmer, then move your switch  up or down to change the brightness of your lamp! There is also a dimmer switch that you can control with your Iphone! You can see that HERE!

Anyway, thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my "indoor picnic". If you are into tablescapes as much as I am, then I recommend you check out my other table settings HERE! Hey, maybe you'll get some ideas for your Thanksgiving table! Crazy how time flies,huh)

Till next time!
