Falling Leaves at The Table!

I am resharing this table from last year. I had intended to continue my Fall tour but didn't get pictures taken before I left....I am at the beach! I hope you will enjoy seeing this one again. I set a new everyday table for Fall. The colors were inspired by the garland. What beautiful colors of Fall! For the runner I just flipped over a printed runner to this pretty green side. The leaf plates I have had for several years. I added some Indian corn to the setting that picks up the colors of the plates.


A faux pumpkin sits on top. My green flatware makes another appearance.

I gathered 2 napkins; a plain gold and the flowery print in a flower napkin ring.


 I love the colors in this garland.
 And the leaf goblets, (from Dollar Tree several years ago), go so well! Along with a green candle holder and maroon votive.

 My centerpiece is a mix of acorns in a metal cloche.
 These pumpkins have a hole in the bottom to place a tea light. I use the LED ones.

Thanks for your visit today. I hope you are enjoying some beautiful Fall weather where you are!

Continuing the Tour, the Foyer

Good morning! As you are seeing this, I am on my way to the BEACH! This is an annual tradition that a group of us girls do, and this is our 43rd year!!!!!!!!!! We started as a Mom's get away weekend when our kids went back to school. It has evolved to a 4 or 5 days get away and now our kids have kids:) We were all neighbors but none of us live in that neighborhood anymore. One girl is even flying up from Florida to be with us! So anyway, back to the tour. I will share the stairway and the credenza today. As many of you know, I always keep some of my blue and white jars on the stairs. And I always have these LED candles which I turn on at night.
 This year I found these blue velvet pumpkins and fell in LOVE!!!!
 The cream colored, cut out pumpkin came from Kirklands several years ago.
 I kept the blue candle rings rather than the orange pumpkin ones that I usually use in the Fall. I love the life like stems on these pumpkins too!

 Now I will show you the credenza dressed for Fall. This sparkly pumpkin was found at Home Goods years ago. I placed it on a cake stand and surrounded it with a large candle ring.
 My 2 leopard candlesticks have pumpkins perched on them too.
 An amber, glass pumpkin is perched on a brass candle stick on this end and a sparkly pumpkin sits here too. This palm tree lamp is a favorite and has been here for awhile now.
 A leopard glass pumpkin is on this end.
 I wove a pumpkin and berry garland through the vignette.
 Now, let's turn on the lights.





 My large jar that sits here got a candle ring too.
 
Thanks for your visit! I hope you have a great week!
XO, Pinky

Fall Tour: the Dining Room

As you walk into the house the first room you see is the dining room on your right. I love to set a table for each season so that our guests feel welcomed. I set the table just for YOU, as you are our guests too! Come on in and have a seat!
 The colors for the table are dictated by the runner that I got last year. I love the sparkle and the black, gold, and silver colors! I found the pumpkin salad plates at Home Goods last year too. I LOVE them!!




 The beaded placemats are new this year. I found them at CTS!!!!!!!!!!!! Can you believe that? I did a happy dance when I saw them:)
 I placed some of my favorite pumpkins on candle sticks to rise them for a beautiful centerpiece. They wander down the center of the table.
 This glittery, sequined pumpkin is so beautiful in person!
 2 more pretty pumpkins on candle sticks. Candle sticks are great things to use to rise things to a height to display them beautifully!

 The pumpkin and leaf pillows were found last year (after the season) at Bed Bath and Beyond. For the black pillow I just turned a printed one around!

 The dinner plate is my good china.
A glass pumpkin and
 and glass gourd.
 Now, let's light the candles!!!
 I had some tiny candles and then also put some votive candles in some mercury glass votive holders.
 The flatware is my good flatware that has a bamboo design.
 The napkins are hand embroidered. They were my MIL's and came from Italy.


 I would love to have a small, intimate dinner party at this table. Who wants to join us???:)
 
Thanks so much for your visit.
XO, Pinky

Fall Tour Begins at the Front Door!

Good morning friends! I had a hard time last night getting this post up but have been wanting to start showing you my Fall decorations! I LOVE fall and thought I would do a tour so we are starting at the front door! Here is what you see as you approach the house.
 Next to the driveway I placed a mum and our initial pumpkin.
 Then a welcome flag to all our quests!
 Coming up the sidewalk is a large pumpkin in a spider legs stand, another mum and another orange plant that I forget the name of:)

 Going up the stairs. Today a guy is coming to give us an estimate to repair the crack along the sidewalk. There is a new product that they drill a hole and then shoot a material under the concrete to raise the concrete and then fill the crack once it is level. Much less expensive than doing a whole new sidewalk.


The pumpkin mat sits on the everyday mat.

 My wreath that I made several years ago. I have all the materials to make a new one, I just haven't gotten to that yet!
 Since I have the lantern on a timer I decided to add some votive holders on the steps.
 The little tiger stripe pumpkins are real.



 I added a faux cabbage to the real impatiens in the blue pot. And the tiger stripe pumpkin is real and sits next to a faux pumpkin.

 It was almost dusk when I took these shots.

 Each votive has a different glass leaf.

 I love this set. I got them at CTS several years ago and they were only $1.00 for a set of 4!!!!
 I added a bow and a berry ring to the lantern. I like to embellish lanterns.
 All of the real pumpkins I have bought are out back on the patio. I am planning to go back to my favorite Amish farm soon to get some more and I will show you the patio soon. Don't feel bad about mixing real and faux:)
 I was going to share the foyer but the post got too long so we will continue inside.
 
Thanks for your visit!
