Fall Table Tops and hints from family and dining room 2016





Hello Sweet Friends,

Hope this finds you having a good

week.....so far.....

So far.....So good for us!!  As the 
previous two have been rather
crazy, I have to say.
So this week is good so far, and
hoping it stays that way.  lol

Last Thursday right after I posted
my Thankful Post,  hubby and I
got a big not so good surprise.
Come back on Thursday and I
will tell you what it was......
For now let's enjoy some Fall
decorating.........lol

Since that is much more fun!!









This vignette rest on my serving table
between the family  and dining room.
I started out by using this wonderful 
printable from Ann over @
 On Sutton's Place.com
If you have never visited Ann be sure 
and drop by, you will not be disappointed.

  Put it in my frame but due to the white
 matting, it just needed a lil pazzzz, so I
 stuck the lil leaves and the embossed
 leaf candle jar lid on the glass, so it
 gave it that bit of umphh it needed, 
so it didn't just blend into my
 walls so much.

Could have painted the matting, but 
trying to keep it neutral so I can use
 any printable in it.

Hint: 
There are so many free printables
out here in blogland that I decided to
purchase some frames that had easy
backs to get in and out of, so I could
easily transform them seasonally.
If you love to decorate seasonally,
You might just want to find some
frames too, .............I also have to
say that it seems like I tend to like
Ann's printables the best,  but there
are tons of them out there in blog-
land........just a matter of preference.
 Guess Ann and my tastes must
 just be alike. lol




Hint:
Pretty Fall potpourri not only smells
wonderful,  it is a nice added natural
look that adds texture and appeal.



With photocopy affect









You can see the previous vignette behind
the sofa and the lil table below next to it.






My Fall decorating is not necessarily
quick and easy because it has been
collected over many years, and many
items have been gifts to me, as family
 and friends know I love decorating and 
I love all my Fall pieces, and since
 I only get to use them once a year,  
I try to find a special place for each
 of them!!  Which requires a bit of
 thinking, planning and trying.....
which spells fun to me........lol






























This vignette is in my hallway
 near the dining room.










Hint:
Need to make a cake plate for 
decorative purposes.............
Just use a large candle holder or bowl 
turned upside down and add a plate
 to the top. This is a large candle
holder I am using here.

Cake Plates just seem to make a
nice statement and give some
height and interest to a vignette.







Hint:
I think using gift bag filler adds 
a bit of a nature look too......as well
 as adding texture, and definitely looks
much better than just plopping some-
thing on a plate.  It also is great
 in the Spring to make bird nests.
and it comes in many colors.







This is the centerpiece on
 our dining room table right now.







Hint:
This was one berry vine that I cut into
 3 pcs.to decorate each pumpkin....
Sometimes you just need a lil bit of
something to spruce it up. So these
berries fit the bill.............




Same large candle cup
with a different plate.










Hint:
I liked to use this dried bean soup mix
added to the glass candleholders as it
has a nice natural Fall look to it.
(you can find it in your local grocery 
store in the dried bean section)
Mine was leftover from last year and
 still looks great,,, so it stores well in a
ziploc bag, so you can reuse it a few
times..........lol





Hint:
The cake plate gives it just a lil bit of 
variation for the center, so it isn't so flat,
 but high enough you can see over it
 and it doesn't impede conversation
when you are having din din.









Glad you stopped by today,  and 
hope you enjoyed your visit.


Have a lovely Fall Day.....

really lovely fall decor! Love you all, Susan

Hi Nellie. Your gold pumpkins are fabulous! I love seeing your seasonal decorating. It's not something we do so much here as our seasons are all a bit the same-ish really in the sub-tropics! I hope your not-so-good surprise is not ALL bad news. You deserve nothing but the best. Love, Mimi xxx
