Fall Decor Inspiration

I have not done  many Fall tablescapes these days as we usually have Thanksgiving dinner

at my sister’s home.  She loves to cook in her gourmet kitchen

and she can have 75 plus people in her home and it never feels crowded.

She has been known to feed that many at Thanksgiving.

I created this table a couple years ago and was vintage and Pottery Barn inspired.

Accents plates by Pottery Barn. I love that these are so versatile in using them

throughout my home in Fall decor.

I used many of the same florals and dried sunflowers and created another

Fall centerpiece using this vintage tool box.

Love the inscription on the bottom.

Other than Christmas, I love doing Fall vignettes the most.

Last year’s Fall vignette on my French buffet

and I am looking forward to creating a Christmas vignette soon.

Fall pumpkins, brilliant leaves of orange and gold, the bounty of all things Fall

is something I look forward to every year,

however, I must say, that I think my favorite thing for Fall

are the beautiful mums.

I have been away these past few days and visited my friend Mary Alice.

If you read her beautiful blog, you will know that she is moving,

a great new adventure for her.

I am the happy recipient of some of her amazing things

that she is not taking to her new home.

So stay tuned!

Have a beautiful day making memories!

  18. Shirley,
    Your vignettes are always stunning! I especially love those velvet pumpkins that you used on the cake plate.

    Your sisters house sounds beautiful. Just wondering if you two have similar decorating styles or if you are complete opposites?

    Shirley, you have an elegant, magical touch with vignettes and tablescapes. Everything looks gorgeous!

  20. Looks beautiful! I love your vintage wooden toolbox that is so cool. I have to say I am loving the fall weather in NC and not pulling out our snow stakes and winter coats is so nice!

  21. That centerpiece is incredible!!! Absolutely gorgeous table, Shirley. Every image is gorgeous!
