4 Simple Fall Centerpieces

I do not have a kitchen table.

We use our dining room table pretty much every day.

Our dining room is truly a room that is used more than the typical dining rooms

that are used for special occasions and holidays.

I see a trend in new homes of no formal dining rooms . . .

Just a dining area that is off the kitchen.

Being that we use our dining room table often,

I try to make a centerpiece that is easily moved if need be.

So today, I give you 4 simple Fall centerpieces.

Going with the traditional color of orange for this one:

Pumpkin Topiary in a Silver Trophy Bowl

I love topiaries of all kinds…

…..and when I was able to purchase great pumpkins perfect for stacking….

……….from the Farmers’ Market…I was in topiary heaven!

I originally purchased enough pumpkins to make two topiaries for the back porch….

…..then I relocated one of those to the front porch.

I headed out again to the Farmers’ Market to get three more to create a new topiary…

…..one to place in the Silver Trophy Bowl in my foyer.

I purchased this great silver bowl at the antique mall where my booth is located….

…..the inscription says “SOUTHAMPTON CVO PARADE….MAYORS TROPY….1980”

Pinky told me that the CVO parade is actually the 4th of July Parade in Southampton”

Pumpkin Topiary

My hubby asked me why all the pumpkin topiaries???!!..

…..I looked and smiled….he returned the smile.

I love this book as it was a “gift” from the owner this Antiquities Brocante …

…..a wonderful place where our “French Shopping Group” found many, many treasures!

2013 France Trip

I am waiting for this beauty (the buffet, ha!) to arrive in the U.S. from France….

…..so that I can place it in the foyer…(and it just may hide that A/C return)…

Have a wonderful weekend enjoying the Fall weather and making beautiful memories!
