Decorating our thrifty fall dining room with eggplant accents was a lot easier than you might think.

If you missed my latest YouTube video that I shared last Saturday, I went to a Fall celebration with my mom and sisters and it was just what I needed to get me in the mood for the season.

We visited so many fun little shops that were all decorated beautifully for fall, and one of the stores had beautiful green and white pumpkins for sale on the sidewalk! I grabbed two big green ones for just six bucks each, and I also grabbed some small white ones that were only a dollar.

At the end of the night we ventured into Joann Fabrics, and I found the prettiest eggplant colored stems. All the fall florals were 40% off, so I grabbed a handful of them and decided that this would be my accent color for fall!

When I brought everything home I just loved how it all came together! The green pumpkins with the eggplant accent color and pops of white was just beautiful. That next morning I even ran to the local farmer’s market and found some actual eggplant, perfect for more added color on my dining room table!

Whenever I decorate for the seasons in my dining space, I focus on three main areas. Our garage sale dresser-turned-buffet, our DIY farmhouse table, and the small table right off the kitchen. 

The buffet is a main focal point in the dining room, so I like to start with that area first. I used a bushel basket I found at our local thrift store for two dollars and began filling it with stems. I used the eggplant colored stems from Joanne Fabrics, and mixed in some faux Queen Anne’s Lace as well as some greens.

I love the combination of all three colors in this area! Next I brought in some real pumpkins. A mix of green and white pumpkins with some dark green and white squash completed the vignette. I even incorporated the scoop that I found with my Mom this past summer and I love how it looks with squash spilling out of it!

For our table, I simply foraged some leaves from my yard and placed some of my local eggplant in a bowl nearby. Another lovely green pumpkin connects the table to the buffet.

I used a soft blue and white plaid scarf on the table as well, and I love how the eggplant really pops against it.

For the little green table, I created a grouping of white and green pumpkins with another eggplant! Easy and beautiful. More leaves from the yard add the perfect fall touch. I’m still undecided on this green dresser color…on some days I feel like I love it, and on others I completely question it!

Our corner cabinet stayed the same, other than some fall leaves that I added to the dough bowl on top of it. I love how my new Pfaltzgraff pieces look inside of it! If you aren’t sure what I’m talking about, be sure to watch my latest YouTube video! 🙂

Our DIY shelves pretty much stayed the same as well, I simply took down some of the blue and white dishes and switched them out to some gray/blue ones that I recently found at a thrift store.
