Since it's October and officially a few weeks into Fall, I am finally ready to share my Fall tablescape! I am just loving the look of it this year!
I have a few new things... the antique dough bowl in the center! This puppy is HUGE. It's also a genuine antique. A lot of them are reproduction but mine came from a reputable antique dealer in Oregon who tells us this is from the 1800s likely made in Pennsylvania. It is carved from one solid piece of wood! Amazing! I filled it with a variety of pumpkins, my favorite being the red-orange cinderella pumpkin in the center! A few pieces of Indian corn are arranged on top (credit to the husband - I asked him to set them on the centerpiece, don't they look nice?)
New this year are the dried wheat stalks from Tuesday Morning as well as my new favorite thing... mini pumpkin cocottes made by Staub! Aren't they just the cutest? We've been serving up soup in them! The Staub pumpkins sit on my favorite Juliska "Country Estate" plates!
My Mom found this cute little squirrel salt and pepper shaker! He seemed like a perfect fit for Fall!
Oh, did I mention, this dining table is new too? It's from Restoration Hardware. We've had our eyes on it for several years but it was above our price range... until one day we found at the RH Outlet for almost 25% of the original price. And there is no damage to it! Talk about a bargain!
I am thinking this table setting could go straight into Thanksgiving, but let's face it, you all know I'm going to rearrange things for a new Thanksgiving table setting, right?
