A Fall Tablescape….Pottery Barn Inspired.

Who cannot resist the beautiful products of Pottery Barn..I can’t!

…..I saw these plates this Fall and had to have them.

I used them throughout my Fall decor in my home.

So today, I gathered them together and created a Fall Tablescape.



The table inspiration also came from this pillow from Pottery Barn…


I gathered my collection of Fall foliage and started creating a centerpiece in my wooden French apple basket..




This cute faux pumpkin is also from Pottery Barn.


And then there are the real pumpkin/gourds…love the color!


I adore my little turkey that I found at a yard sale for one dollar..! πŸ™‚



A view from the other side of the table:



These plates really set the tone for the table…


The square brown chargers are from Tar-Jay on clearance for $2.00 πŸ™‚




I used a combination of silk and dried florals and pods…


The large dried flowers and pods are also a great yard sale find…



A few weeks ago, I received this beautiful item that I had ordered…

From Ann of Sutton Place Designs:


A great addition to my Fall decor:


Such an incredible time of the year to count our blessings as “We Gather Together”….

I hope you enjoyed my Fall Tablescape today….this is my second one for the year…

…..I did one a few months ago…for a “pre Fall” party…you can see it here:

As I am enjoying the crisp Fall weather and Mother Nature’s gift of gorgeous, magnificent colors…

…..I cannot help but think of the many people who have suffered the devastation from Hurricane Sandy.

We keep them in our thoughts and prayers.

So as “We Gather Together” this season….

HOMETALK is supporting a great cause to help with the victims of this disaster….

…..It is called Socks for Sandy….to provide the much needed warmth of socks, hats and gloves to the victims.

You can help these victims by sending socks, hats, or gloves for any age group or gender…

Please mail by Friday, November 9th…as these items are so urgently needed!

You can mail these to:

  16. BEAUTIFUL table setting! All the different pieces make such a lovely whole! I am really loving the plates from Pottery Barn. I don’t think I have a Pottery Barn near me, but I am sure going to find out! If there are other fowl on the other plates, I would love to see them!

  17. Shirley, this is a gorgeous table! I LOVE the plates and your centerpiece is just stunning! I wish I had some time to get to my dishes to do a table!!! We worked on the basement all day today, bought 5 shelf units, put them togethere and got the boxes on them. XOXO

  40. I can’t resist Pottery Barn either, Shirley. You have some beautiful fall things. Hopefully I’ll get to visit PB in Atlanta next weekend. I’m still working on what we discussed last week. I think there’ll be an announcement next week.

  41. Shirley~ I wanted to let you know my book arrived and I’m chomping at the bit to snuggle up with a cup of tea and drink in all the inspiration from its pages! Thank you so much for your generosity!

    I mailed a box of sock & gloves off Monday… such a small thing to do, it feels almost insignificant in the wake of all the devastation.

    I’m sure I will be inspired by Miss Mustard Seed, thank you again πŸ™‚
