{Fall Tablescape}

Oh I do love the colors of Fall.


My beautiful glass pumpkin took center stage on my dining table. 


I've had my gold wired box for years and decided my glass pumpkin would fit nicely in it. I made a little Fall spray to fit on the top and flow down the side. Added a small pumpkin with some ribbon and I am pleased.

 The napkins I made a couple of years ago along with a runner to match but decided not to use the runner this year. Instead I had bought some curtains from a yard sale last year and decided to cut one of the curtains and make a runner to match. The gold flat wear was gifted to me by my long time, life time friend Janice.


 I added some flowers to the tops of my little pumpkins and placed one on each plate. I love my new chargers this year. 



 You just can't beat goblets in any color can you?


 Purchased two new candles along with the candle holders this year and they added to my table nicely.



 The cute salt and pepper shakers I found at Ross.


 Yep, I love my Fall tablescape.



 An old wooden cake stand I found many years ago at a yard sale was perfect to hold my coffee condiments and teas.

I found some new teas this year too. Thanksgiving, pumpkin, apple and well...I've tried them all already and oh so good!

  I'm ready for a another cup of coffee matter of fact.

A little corner in my kitchen needed a little Fall going on. I've had the plate and pumpkin for years but found the cute acorn tea pot last year at a Thrift store. I just love it!


Pumpkin canister holds my favorite kitchen utensils.


And of course I needed something Fallish to store sweet cakes, cookies and candy for my grandbabies. I have this gorgeous set of canisters that I had bought for my motherinlove years ago. When she went home to be with the Lord they came back to me. I love them. 




Old Henry here has been with me for years. Henry has been everywhere in my house that you can imagine and on my front porch at times.  When you plug him in he lights up and glows. My grandbabies love him.

 The orange vase belonged to my grandmother and it is brought out each year for Fall.

Henry decided he wanted to be next to granny's vase this year so now he's in my kitchen. 

 This stand has been used for everything you can imagine. It sits in my kitchen now and speaks of Fall. Of course I just to add my wire tea pot this year.

I didn't want to take everything off of my Baker's Rack this Fall so decided to add a few Fall touches. 

Every dish on my Baker's rack belonged to my granny and my motherinlove. YEP...I just love dishes! 

The recipe was handwritten by my motherinlove and I have used her recipe for years now for my dressing. I know it by heart and I have made it so many times. The eye glasses, once called spectacles, belonged to my great-grandmother Dollie Lee.





My daughter Kristy gave me my baker's rack several years ago and it holds so many things that are dear to my heart. 


 I LOVE my new Welcome sign!


And this is what Thanksgiving is all about....GIVING THANKS! My daughter Melissa gave this to me last year and it is a perfect reminder to be mindful to Give Thanks to our Lord...He is worthy of our praise, our gratefulness and our dedication to Him.  

I wish that you all could come and sit at my lovely table and share a meal with me or maybe have a cup of Thanksgiving Tea. I'll even make some shortbread wedges that you would love topped with some whipped cream and a strawberry! 

Thanks for letting me share my Fall kitchen with you today. Now let me start making my list for our Thanksgiving food menu........It's only a few short weeks away! 

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  4. Cindy this is all so much fun and festive for fall! I really love that cake stand and condiment set .So cute! I haven't been taking out much of my fall decor this season (might not even do Thanksgiving) because we've been busy with home projects and I'm not entertaining for Turkey day here either!

    1. Thanks Heather. I just think Thanksgiving and Christmas are really too close together. Not enough time to enjoy one holiday before the other one is here.

  5. What a lovely, elegant table! You have selected everything with care and attention to detail. I adore your combining the blue with orange...scrumptious color pairing and not the usual. You are blessed to have the warm memories of family and you mother-in-law. I know it must be very special for your husband to eat foods once prepared by his mama.

  6. Hello My Lovely Friend,
    Greetings to you this early evening in Fall. Thank you for inviting us into your warm, inviting and cozy home all dressed for Fall.
    Your kitchen and tablescape are as pretty as they can be.
    This is such a decorative and pretty vase of your Granny's and I love that you have held onto the treasures of the past and welcomed them into the present.
    I do the same thing, in fact this very minute I am looking at a pumpkin bread recipe that was my Mother's. Just reading her little notes along the side of the recipe warm my heart.
    Blessings to you and yours,
    xo

    1. Thanks Jemma. I too love that Vase. Speaking of recipes, I have laughed at some of the recipes from my granny. Apparently while writing a recipe down sometimes she also used that piece of paper to write herself a note on...to do list! LOL!

  10. All the little touches you add to each place setting have created a beautiful, welcoming table for your family. Love the browns and oranges sharing the room with all your blue dishes in the background ... they all look so nice together, like fall leaves and blue skies ;)
    You have so many simple treasures passed on to you that obviously fill your heart. Love the dishes on the bakers rack. Your Henry looks like a happy guy. I have some little scarecrows that I realize now I forgot to get out this year. My kids made them years ago.

  15. Your fall kitchen has so many pretty vignettes I will scroll back to take it in again.
    Love your blue and white on your baker's rack with the fall touches. I don't blame you for not wanting to take it all down.
    Your tablescape has such warmth and personality. I like the way you stuck the silverware in the napkin ring.
    I like how you have decorations the grands love and memorable items like your mother's vase that you bring out each year.
    Have a great Thanksgiving sweet Cindy!
