Late Fall Leafy Tablescape

Are you ready for a late fall leafy tablescape? The holidays are quickly approaching and the more I try to accomplish it seems like the more I get behind.  Hope you all are in better shape than I am.  I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is next week. Oh my!

Never the less I quickly put together this late fall tablescape while gearing up for Thanksgiving.

The centerpiece base is a flat basket I found thrifting a while ago.  To the basket I added a salad plate in the same pattern as the dinner plates.  Under the cloche I added one of my sweater pumpkins.  If you want to see how I made it check out this post. Then I added some cotton bolls and acorns.

A special touch I added is the crackled glass salt and pepper shakers I found while visiting my daughter in Florida earlier this year here.

Next, I added round water hyacinth place mats to the table, then placed a Pamela Gladding leaf plate on each place mat.  I tried several different vintage glasses but nothing worked.   My daughter and I went to the Dollar Store and they had these glasses the perfect shade of green.

The flatware is Kengingson by Pfaltzgraff and the napkins were a lucky find at Target last weekend.  The napkin rings are from my thrifting stash.

This beautiful fall leaf pillow is from the Pottery Barn Outlet near me.  It was the inspiration for this tablescape.

Simple Owl Halloween Tablescape

A tablescape is so much fun to put together but I don’t share them with you as often as I should.

Today, I’m sharing a simple tablescape I recently put together in my breakfast area.

The inspiration for this tablescape came from the vignette on my breakfast area table.  I anchored the vignette in an oblong galvanized tray.

Then, I added a sweet little ivory colored owl, a faux sage plant in a rustic planter, a cute fox salt and pepper shaker, antique gold acorn, a few baby boo pumpkins, and some antique gold prayer beads.  The mix of antique golds and galvanized metal appeals to me.

   This tablescape begins with galvanized chargers topped with some adorable owl plates.  You know I love Pottery Barn and they had these owl plates several years ago.  When they went on clearance I snapped up a set of four.

I’ve been looking for some flatware with white handles and I found some a couple of weeks ago.  So the next addition to the tablescape was the white handled flatware.

Then I searched my cabinets for glassware but nothing seemed right.  On a trip to Ross I ran across these Mason jar glasses numbered from one to four and they seemed perfect for my tablescape and the price was right.  They came with red and white striped plastic straws but I replaced them with some silver straws in keeping with the Mason jar top and the galvanized metal already in the tablescape.

Each place setting has a baby boo pumpkin and mini chalkboard place card.

A Visit to Burt’s Farm

A couple of weeks ago my grandkids were out of school so my daughter and I decided to take them on a visit to Burt’s Farm for pumpkins. Burt’s Farm is in the North Georgia Mountains near Dawsonville.

Burt's Farm

We started the day with a stop at the North Georgia Premium Outlet Mall for me to visit the Pottery Barn Outlet and my daughter and granddaughter to seek out princess costumes at the Disney Store.  Then on to lunch at a local favorite and the farm.

Burt’s always has so many pumpkins and

a great variety to choose from.

I love the name of these pumpkins.  Makes you wonder how they got their name.

These pumpkins are huge.

In addition to the abundance of pumpkins, Burt’s has Indian corn, squash, and gourds.  I especially like the turban squash in the foreground of this photo.

Don’t you love the colors of these gourds?

The Baby Boos are beautiful!  I wish more of them had come home with me.

Amicalola Falls Creek runs through Burt’s Farm.

It has a covered bridge to cross the creek to a picnic area.  Two of my grands check out the bridge.

How To Create A Charming Fall Farmhouse Table

Welcome to How to Create a Charming Fall Farmhouse Table.  My breakfast area table was in desperate need of a seasonal update.

fall-farmhouse-table-ttitle

So I grabbed some odds and ends, a few vintage faves and a bunch of flowers to create a charming fall farmhouse table.

dasies

First, I layered on a buffalo check tablecloth and topped with a pizza board I’ve had for a while.  Then I added the vintage canning jar rack I found here as the base of my farmhouse centerpiece. Daisies, my favorite flower, fill three clear mason jars (two pints and one quart) .

daisies-3

Do you know what much-beloved movie this quote is from? ” I love daisies.  They’re so friendly. Don’t you think daisies are the friendliest flower?”  The first person to leave the name of the movie in comments will get a little vintage token of my appreciation.

Q & E Pottery Barn Inspired Bead Strand Vase Filler

You know I love a good Pottery Barn inspired project.  I first saw Pottery Barn Bead Strand vase filler at the outlet a couple of months ago but even at outlet prices, it was a no go for me

qe-pb-bead-strand-title

.  On the drive home, it occurred to me that I could make the bead strand very easily.  So I did.

Here are my inspiration beads.  The bead strand is no longer available from Pottery Barn online.

wood-beads

Off to Hobby Lobby I went and bought five bags of medium size light color wood beads.

jute

I planned to string the beads on jute which I had on hand.

The jute is very stiff so the beads are very easy to string.

Once satisfied with the strand length I tied the ends of the jute together.

Ideas for Simple Fall Touches Around The House

Simple is the way to go when you are busy.  So here are a few ideas for simple fall decor.

Ideas Simple Fall Title

These ideas are quick and easy and done on the fly.

Thrifty Store Renew

You probably remember this Renewed Thrift Store Find from a week or so ago.  It was on the deck but the rain came back so I found it a home in the family room on the sofa table.

BW Cup with pumpkin

I used this tea cup and saucer in a photo shoot and just sat it down here.  It looked good, so it stayed there.

Love Feast Pumpkin

Velvet pumpkins are my new fall love.

Squirrel Nut Cracker

The iron squirrel nut cracker was also part of a photo shoot that stayed in place.

Pine Cones & Antlers

Pine cones are my go to decor for fall and winter.  An ironstone tureen filled with various sizes of pine cones and a set of deer antlers is on the coffee table in the family room.

Target Pillows

These three adorable pillows were $3.oo each at Target in the Dollar Spot.  The throw is 100% cotton and soooooo soft.  I found it at the Pottery Barn Outlet last year.

Ivy and pumpkin

I bought a bag of these gourds at Walmart and spread them out around the house.  Fancy I know.   I still haven’t made it to the pumpkin patch.

Antlers and moss

The moss balls were already in this pedestal bowl on a shelf by the fireplace.   The faux antlers are a greenish color that complements the moss balls.

Pumpkins and feathers

In the foyer I used the Chinese bowl I found in TTT Week 55 Vintage Finds to display a few more velvet pumpkins.  Then I filled the vintage trophy with feathers.

Nuts and Cinn

I’m still loving my Pottery Barn Inspired Pizza Board.  The bowl of nuts and cinnamon sticks came in handy the other day during my grandson’s homework time.  You probably guessed it was a math problem.  We had to divide 18 nuts and cinnamon sticks into six bags.  He got a kick out of it.

Pizza Board

We are still enjoying the pizza board on my breakfast room table.

Mums in olive bucket

Got To Love A Junky Owl

Junky Owl Title

 I found an unusual metal piece in the thrift store kitchen section last week and the first thing I thought of was an owl’s face.  Unfortunately, I forgot to make a photo before I began putting my junky owl together.  It looks like a coffee pot strainer top except for the unusual shape.

Junky Qwl

The owl face went home with me that day and I started searching for other bits to make a junky owl.

Mr.Googly Eyes

My owl needed googly eyes and sink drain stoppers fit the bill.  I didn’t have any extra stoppers so off to the Dollar Store I went.  The stoppers led me to name my junky owl Mr. Googly.

Mr. Googly Eyes 2

A vintage stand grater became his body.

Mr. Googly 3

A bit of bending and shaping the vintage grater handle gave Mr. Googly some funky owl ears.

Cotton plant limb

Short pieces of bendable wire became Mr. Googly’s claws.

Mr. Googly with lights

The last step was adding a string of orange battery operated lights for those spooky nights.

A few metal bits and pieces, some glue, a vintage stand grater, and a string of battery operated lights come together to make one cool owl aptly named Mr. Googly.

Party starts one week from today on October 15th.  Hope to see you there!
