We just love designer Erin Souder’s fall decorating ideas– they’re beautiful and sophisticated, yet are so practical and easy to pull off. She’s the creative mind behind House of Earnest, and this lovely outdoor dinner party setting is her contribution to our Halloween and Harvest Style Challenge.
We sent mystery boxes of Home Depot fall decor items to some of our favorite DIY and design bloggers to see what amazing decorating ideas they’d come up with.
Erin not only styled the dining table beautifully, she actually made the table for this outdoor setting. Add a fun party photo booth, and hang some outdoor lamps, and you’re ready to celebrate fall in style.
Although most of our yard is flat open field, we have the most perfect grove of just a few trees with a shaded clearing in the center. Throughout the years, I’ve always thought that would be an amazing spot for an outdoor dinner party. When it came to the challenge of styling a harvest dining room, I couldn’t for the life of me image doing it indoors, and it looked like the perfect time to take advantage of that little grove.
