A Toast To Autumn

I am excited to share my Autumn tablescape with you today.  I am joining other fabulous bloggers for an Autumn Tablescape Blog Hop.  Chloe from Celebrate and Decorate is hosting this fun party.  Be sure to visit these talented bloggers and enjoy the eye candy.  The links are at the bottom of this post.

I set up this Autumn tablescape in our roomy dining room. The large room makes a lovely room for entertaining and design.  


Rattan chargers are set in each place setting with rust colored chargers.  Our colorful fall plates are next, with a pretty pumpkin tureen. Gold flatware and a pretty colorful fall napkins complete the look.


My husband found this pretty  pumpkin and it makes a perfect vase for some beautiful flowers we bought at our local  farmer's market.  Two rust colored lanterns flank each side with birch candles and fall candle rings.



A long side view of the table, shows some pumpkin tureens.



I added a glass pumpkin with led lights to a fall candle ring and placed inside a cloche.

I like to use lamp shades on some of our tables. A  perfect compliment to give  candle holders a whole new look. I fell in love with these wood grain lamp shades. A fall runner is used to draw interest and color to the table. I  love showing the beautiful wood finish on this table.


This pictures shows a peek of our family room.




A view from outside of the french doors welcome you in. Thanks for joining  me.

  1. Such a pretty and elegant tablescape for Fall. I love the idea of the lampshades on the table, it gives it an entirely different look, really heightens the elegance of the tablescape. I have always loved the idea of the little pumpkin tureens, maybe when they go on sale this year! Thanks so much for participating in the Autumn Tablescape Blog Hop!

  3. Good Morning Linda,
    Such a lovely and festive tablescape! You possess a decorating gift for creating elegance and adding beautiful details to your tables. I am swooning over everything but I am so partial to your goblets, centerpiece and your place settings.
    Hopefully the next time I visit Amanda we can get together and share a lunch or dessert at a nearby cafe. It would be so fun to meet you in person!

  5. I'd love to be a guest at your gorgeous table, Linda! Your pumpkin used to hold the bouquet of flowers is so pretty, and I love the birch candles. Are they battery operated ones? Your lampshades on the candle holders, the cloches, along with your lovely dishes and runner all look perfect for your Fall tablescape.

  11. So harmonious w/ the room Linda..one of my fave tablescapes..I guess because fall is so short..we must take advantage of all the rusts and golds..and natural foraged things.

  13. Linda, much like you, I really like showing the wood of a gorgeous table, and you've done a fine job dressing it so well. I love the LED lights in the centerpiece, and the shades on your candles. The evening glow from outside your French doors is beautiful. And tell your husband he did a great job picking the pumpkin for the floral arrangement, which is also stunning. You do fall very well. :)
