A Little More Fall Y'all

9.13.2010

I created a fall arrangement on my dining room table with things I already had. We are having guests this weekend and this is just the start to the table setting that I will do later this week. My son, dil and grand girls are coming for a very short visit so that they will be here for my daughter's second baby shower. 

My mom hasn't even seen her second great granddaughter yet so she offered to bring the food if I offered the house. So we are having some wonderful barbecue from a place she has used before and I will be setting the tables. For now I am showing the centerpiece in the dining room.


I used a cake plate from Southern Living at Home that is adorned with oak leaves and acorns. I have had this for a few years.


Here you can see the detail of the stand better.


I used my Williams and Sonoma runner.




Faux fall leaves, berries, and acorns.


I love my yellow pumpkins that I found last year in Nashville at an upscale decor store. It was the only thing I was willing to pay for in there.


The large acorns were purchased last year from another home decor shop.


Pottery Barn candle holders that I have had for a couple of years are filled with acorns and tiny pumpkins and a votive.






Joining Marty for Tabletop Tuesdays at A Stroll thru Life. Be sure and pop over there to find some more fall looks I am sure.

Now I need to go do some more getting ready for company.


Y'all come back now,

KIM

  2. Such pretty things for Fall. Your home looks very Fallish! I love acorn and such and the things you have are lovely. I haven't pulled any of my Fall things out just yet...this weekend I plan to start digging around in the Storage Room. I did buy two real pumpkins today for the front of my house. I love Fall!

  35. Hi Kim ... so glad to be back in blogland now that the crazy busy summer is over !! I love your home, especially since you and I share similar taste in colors/style (however, you tie it all together MUCH better than I do! Your Fall dining room is beautiful ... looks so festive and ready for a dinner party! The cake stand is perfect for raising your pumpkins (love the white one mixed in). I really like the large acorns, too. And, I like how you continued the acorns by filling your votives with them. Beautiful !! Take care, Becca

  38. I agree with Robin, this is very elegant. I want to find some small acorns. Where do I begin?

  39. Mary, I got those acorns at Pottery Barn on sale the last two years. I think they carry them every year, but not sure.

  40. Very Pretty. Fall decor doesn't always look classy... Your table looks very classy! I love the big acorns and the pale yellow runner. Very nice. :)

    Enjoy the shower!
