Early Autumn Table

9.27.2012

I haven't done a table setting post in a long time, but I love trying seasonal or holiday settings. I have been in nesting mode like crazy lately. I have changed up a guest room and the sun room and will share it all eventually. I threw this together a couple of weeks ago using everything I had on hand except for the live tiny mums for the centerpiece.






















I wonder how Mule likes this look?

Thought I would show you what is under the mums.

Two of these trays were less than $7 from Home Depot. They were a perfect fit so I could water the mums without the risk of a mess on my table.

Joining the following:
French Country Cottage
Between Naps on the Porch
Stone Gable
Common Ground
It's Overflowing
My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia
The Inspired Room

Post edit: Since many of you are asking where items came from I thought I would list them. All this is stuff I had on hand.

Chargers.....Pottery Barn two years ago
Squirrel napkin rings....Pottery Barn two years ago
Plates....HomeGoods last year
Napkins.....Williams Sonoma (I think) last year.
Glasses.....Ballard Designs few years ago
Runner....Pottery Barn last spring
Forks....vintage
knives....Mikassa

  4. Kim, wow, what a coordinated look, I love all the touches of yellow. On the napkins, flowers, dishes and even the chairs. What's under your plates? I love those settings.

  8. I love it Kim. Perfectly autumn and those plates are beautiful. Are they antiques? I finally remembered to snag my WOW featured button so now I am off to proudly display it on my sidebar. Thanks again for the feature. Patty

  9. I just love it all Kim! The tool box, the acorn plates, the pillows you've used...it all looks so wonderful! I've been thinking of putting Kubu chairs at the ends of my dining room table so I was excited to see you had done this so I can get an idea of how it would look.

  10. Love the tool box and the way you put the Mum's in it. so pretty! By the way, I asked you last year for the link to that light fixture in your dining room (which I adore!). It was an EXTRA $800 to ship to Canada. Can you believe it! I thought there was some mistake, but nope. Needless to say, we didn't order it. I'll just have to admire yours =)

  12. Love the centerpiece! Makes me want to go buy some mums & drag mine in the house. I was wondering if you had anything under them for watering. Guess I'll need to measure mine first.

  25. Hi Kim, As always, I love your post. The plastic liners are a wonderful idea. I am always looking for ways to protect my tables and water the plants at the same time. I have those PB chargers--I foolishly purchased only 6 and have been wishing ever since that I had 6 more. Your botanicals on the wall proved the perfect backdrop for this table! Linda
