Fall Table

 I started to decorate my kitchen table for fall. I'm not really happy with the look yet. I really want to put some candles in the middle for a more cozy feel. Anything I do has to be low profile since my hubby hates tall decorations that prevent him from full view of the room. I guess I have to do a candle shopping trip to the dollar store. I just don't have the right colors to suit my needs. Candles never seem to be able to survive around here.
Until then a more simple look is what we got.
I found these pumpkins last year at CVS. I love their darker hues.
.As much as I love bright colors my table took on a more earthy tone for some reason. Must be in a more subdued mood
The pumpkin plates are last years find also from CVS I think. The tablecloth, napkins, placemats and napkin rings from Boscov's.

The leaves underneath I had for a few years but were misplaced. I had found them at a after holiday sale and they never were put in the right box. Believe it or not they were in my Easter boxes. I love them, sure wish I could remember where they came from.

It's a start but.... I'm never really happy with some things until the season is just about over. I'll show you pics once I find just the right candles. But since I wanted to join Susan for Tablescape Thursday I rushed it before I realized my candles were ruined.
Please be sure to go to Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.
Until next time happy fall decorating!

  1. Terry, I have never seen any darling little pumpkins like those at CVS!!! I will have to look more carefully next time I am in there. I think your husband is right about the centerpieces--it is nice to be able to see everyone at the table! Linda

  2. Oooohhh, I want those three pumpkins you have as a centerpiece! They are just the right size(s) and colour! The plates you have on the sides coordinate so well with them too! Very pretty table! When you find your candles, you will be all set!
