A Cozy, Colorful Autumn Table

Early October feels like a bridge between September's playful warmth and the frosty weather of deep autumn.  I love this journey. If only October could last a bit longer. With this feeling in mind, I reached for colorful linens that evoked the beauty of the month. For tabletop decorations, I added pumpkins, antlers, and sunflowers--and a lone, black crow figurine.


I borrowed flowers, pillows, and pumpkins from the front porch and potting shed, along with a much loved black lantern.








  





A small green wicker table held a whimsical vignette. No, I didn't have a bit of fun. :-)

  1. Oh I want to dine at your fall table with your wonderful plaid, pumpkins and antlers! Gorgeous flowers with your pumpkins too! I loved the peek at your whimsical vignette with your star and scarecrow...I spy a wonderful plaid basket...picnic maybe? More photos please! I picked up the same layered fringe throw at my HomeGoods yesterday but put it back, but now I think I need to make a mad dash to return this morning to see if it's still there :)

  2. I love everything about this. Too bad my boys would destroy it at first sight. One can dream, right.

  7. Pretty! And what a true statement of October. I love those weighty, cotton tablecloths with napkins, but that throw with the fringe!! And how much fun that corner must've been. What a great day to play house!

  10. What a wonderful Fall table! The pillow of the wicker chair adds such pizazz, and the cozy throw on the other one, adds such whimsy and warmth. I'm sighing over the pewter cream and sugar, and your adorable corner vignette. Happy October, Michael Lee!
