Fall Tablescape

Momentarily last week, there were a few hints of Fall, but no more.  Where did it go?  It's Summer again with temps in the high 90s.  
I'm still in a bit of a fog after a 2-day migraine, while Mr. 2805 has spent 3 days at the NHRA  drag races here this week end.


This afternoon, I put my Fall cocktail table together.  You have seen my botanicals in apothecary jars before.  Dried quince,  pomegrantes, and  ripen flowers. 



 Nature gives us so many pretty natural things to use.  I keep these and use them over and over for Fall.



But something was missing, a pumpkin.
I called my local WM to see if they had pumpkins in yet.  Yes, they said they had green and white ones too!  I got so excited, dropped my pajamas and took off.  Only one white one existed, but now it was mine. 



 I placed it on a stack of orange books which seem appropriate for this time of year.



I had  scrunched up a fringed table scarf
a few days ago when the table complained of cool nights.  That story has certainly changed.  "Take this off!  It's too hot".  




Then I explained, "It's like wearing high heels.  You look pretty, even if it hurts.  Cowgirl up!"

Until next time, Honey

  1. Your tabletop vignettes showcase the richness of fall, with the glimmer of the crystal. Beautiful settings!

  2. Wow!!! Oh Honey, that is beautiful! I did the scrunched up table scarf Saturday as I redid the dining table for a dinner, and took it off, as it was not feeling very fall like then. This morning was a sweet 61.
    Going back to peek at your table again.
    Cheers, Gee

  10. It's all gorgeous and so inspiring. I saw one lone large white pumpkin in the grocery store the other day and didn't buy it because it was too expensive. Hmm, I wonder if it's still there.

  15. Beautiful Honey, you have truly captured the essence of Fall in your tablescape. But I have to laugh because I've been known to run to WM with my pj's still on!!! We are finally having some of that cool weather...we're in the 70's during the day but as soon as the sun goes down we drop into the 50's to high 40's. Love it!!!

  29. What a gorgeous cocktail table, Honey. I love the deep orange colors you chose, and the ivory colors in the pumpkin and tablecloth and scarf lend elegance! I'm thinking about doing over an old tea cart into a bar--we'll see how it goes.
