Autumn Tables

I think “Mother Nature” heard me last week! Here in the Northeast we are finally going to get a bit cooler! not snow-boot weather but at least cool enough to throw the extra blanket on at night….I am thinking of a get-together for a cool night by the fire and big bowls of Beef Bourguignon with noodles and Potato Leek soup…..Have any special dinner plans this month?

I was surfing the net for some really nice tablescapes for a rustic fireside supper…..I love to see how folks put together a beautiful table, you know who you are! the idea’s are endless and the imaginations are impressive…..but I degress…..I am trying to stay on track for RUSTIC…..hmmmm, but Pottery Barn has these great ideas….how about this cart? I love it!

Even indoors it would work well….any holiday…..and this buffet looks inviting…Love the chalkboard…thought about a round metal tray, paint it with the chalkboard paint and black rim, or a grapevine wreath around it? oh, have to remember that one…..

This is a bit more formal but what a creative idea for Thanksgiving! I have two large glass cylinder vases and saw mercury glass pumpkins at  Big Lots…that would work! it is a simple tablescape but elegant….don’t you think?   I have plenty of branches from my Birches….now that they have finally conceded to Autumn up on the ridge…..

and this I thought was so pretty! Rustic and soft all at the same time…..Imagine this lining a  table along with with black and green plates and black flutes …….not a bad idea for a tablescape!

This is just beautiful………This dinnerware is ” Vigna Vecchia ” (Old Vineyard) from Arte Italica…. a Tuscan scene in a soft hand painted red with a rustic creamy background of picturesque farmhouses and tall cypress trees, it is paired with stemware “Ambra”…..this was at the Market show a while back in NYC, anyone who loves tablescaping and lives close enough to NYC should not miss the “NEW YORK TABLETOP SHOW” October 15 thru the 18th at the Mart at 41 Madison Avenue…here is the website:…………Please note that your photo identification and appropriate business identification will be required to enter the building.

I would love this outdoor lunch…..I’m keeping this one on the front burner of idea’s…..


This is so elegant and casual …….I could see guests lingering over small talk into the wee hours….

Well I’ve given you a few idea’s to think about……I’m working on a great tablescape for this week and a table runner/pillow for your project board…..and a great recipe for a twosome by the fire….There will be some awesome photo’s as we are hitting our “Peak” in Autumn color!

Come on back….the coffee is brewing…….
