October Joy

October gave a party; The leaves by hundreds came.  The Chestnuts, Oaks and Maples.  And leaves of every name.  Sunshine spread a carpet.  And everything was grand.  Miss Weather led the dancing. And Professor Wind the band.  -Geo. Cooper

Hi Friends,

The temps have cooled down and there really is a Fall feeling in the October air.  Join me at my table today…


Pumpkins in the field to gather, big and gold……


I added greenery and faux flowers to give them a place to rest.



I usually start on my kitchen island putting a tablescape together.   This was the beginning……


I  love this little floral tablecloth with dark blue background that I picked up at TJ Maxx.  It  has all the colors in the flowers.  It even has orange!  I think these napkins work well…from Pier I years ago.  As you can tell, I started early in the evening and finished up late. 


This is the table in my breakfast area and a difficult place to photograph.  My beautiful white plates from Pier I that I have had years and years really brought out the white in this cloth.





Etched crystal glasses from my beloved MIL that I use often.


Fall has always been my favorite season.  Everything is bursting forth with beauty. Thank you for helping me celebrate this season.  If you would like to leave a comment, just scroll on down.  I love to hear from you.

  1. Dianne, what a beautiful autumn tablescape. I love the floral tablecloth and the white Pier 1 dishes set it off perfectly. It is feeling more like autumn here and I am loving it. Have a wonderful day sweet friend!
