Dining With Pumpkins and Antlers

What a change a few days can make! The temperatures in our area are cooler and so much more enjoyable.  Setting a table that features pumpkins and antlers is a delight on days like this. 

The antlers used in the centerpiece are from deering hunting trips of my husbands. He is starting to prepare for the upcoming deer season the third week of November and again the first weekend in December. Deer camp is a big thing around here. 

Leaves are falling daily now. It's always fun to walk in the leaves and kick them around. Memories from my childhood seem to flood in. 

I'm always thankful for fall to arrive. 

I added architectural elements on both sides of the china cabinet. A little white chalk paint was added then they were hung by my husband. 

Warm fall colors used on the table and seen outdoors gives a good feeling.

The architectural elements are lightweight so we didn't worry about hitting a stud while hanging them. 

The pumpkin salad plates from Pier 1 were just too good to pass up. Who could resist their color and design.

The orange pumpkin shaped plates are Pottery Barn from a few years ago. 

Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate your comments - Judy.

  1. You are a real decorator! WOW! Everything is just perfect. I love the colors of Fall and natural elements too. I still pick up pinecones sometimes when we hike! Enjoy your nice weather. It's even cool here today! Hugs!

  2. What a fantastic table setting! I love the wonderful autumn colors. I enjoyed them when I lived in NE GA, but here in New Zealand there's not a lot of is since we have mostly pine trees.

  3. Your autum colors in the table setting are lovely, I love all the natural elements you are using, The Pier One and Pottery Barn plates are gorgeous and so is the pumpkin pillow. Great addition of architectural touches, love the color. Beautiful autumn tablescape Judy. Happy November..........

  4. These tablescapes are charming, elegant and attractive in every way. The plates from Pier One are irresistible - I often wonder about the designers and how they know just what will appeal to our eyes? Happy November and cooler temperatures.

  5. Such a lovely fall tablescape! The colours are lovely and oh, the plates you have! Definitely a fan of the Pier 1 and Pottery Barn ones - they add so much interest to your table. The centerpiece with the antlers is perfect for the upcoming deer hunting season - will you enjoy the "me" time while hubby is away? Your new wall art pieces are terrific!

  6. Lovely! You make it easy to see why Autumn is the most beautiful time of the year!
