Last Year's Fall Decor

I will be posting my TT earlier than usual this week as I am going out of town on a little shopping trip with my mom and want to have it ready to link up to BNOTP.

Many thanks to the amazing Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for hosting Tablescape Thursday yet again! I am still working on putting out this year's fall decorations but since I wasn't a blogger then, I thought I would share with you a couple of things I did last year including a tablescape that was one of my favourites of the season.

This display happened by accident last year as I was unpacking all of my pumpkin bowls ( ordered from the Shopping Channel quite a few years back) from their boxes and I didn't have anywhere to put them at the time.  I created a grouping on my dining room table and decided to add to it with some fall florals, leaves, faux pears and pillar candleholders.

This was a little vignette I set up on our kitchen island.  I got the "Give Thanks" pumpkin at a local grocery store and put it next to a cross candleholder.  It helps symbolize the theme of Thanksgiving to me.  Here in Canada, it won't be long until its Thanksgiving Day.

Some fall decorations and a hot beverage help make this table into a cozy nook for reading.

Mr. Delight and I love eating many of our meals here at this little table for two by our dining room windows.  I used the rich bold colours of autumn to create a more dramatic tablescape. 

The mosaic vase and all the candleholders are from Partylite

I swapped out the pumpkin bowls for these new acorn bowls (HomeSense two years ago).

Played around with some photo "effects" here.
Hopefully, I will have all of my fall decorating done by next week and will be able to share some new vignettes/tablescapes with you.   In the meantime, you know where you can find tons of eye candy in the form of fabulous tablescapes.   Enjoy TT for every little pleasure it brings you!

Beautiful vignettes!

I'm going to try to get a fall tablescape together for this week. Most of my fall things are still at the lake, but I think I'll be able to come up with a little bit of a table.

Enjoy your shopping trip, with your mom. It sounds wonderful!
