Reflecting Fall on the Entry Table

Like it or not, fall has started here up north.
I've been in denial and resisting the impulse to decorate for fall but now that we're nearing late September I've decided to embrace it.

I took this picture not far from our house.  It's changing color in a half and half fashion.
There are dots like this popping up along the countryside, but it's still a good ways off yet before we will have a full blast of color.

So on to my entry table...
The sun was just starting to come through the back windows but the table wasn't bright enough to take a picture so I turned the light on.  This is actually a morning shot!

I found a few new table linens at T.J. Maxx.  I liked this runner because of the embroidered design and the linen like fabric it's.  I was planning to use it on the dining table but it ended up here.  

 I showed a quick glimpse of my bird cloche on my Friday's post.   I poked in some bits of raffia to add a little feeling of straw to be mixed with the pumpkins.  I kept the artichokes that I had already been using in this cloche before.

See the velvet pumpkins! This was a little pre-packed box from Pier 1 that included three velvet pumpkins, a faux pumpkin and gourd, some leaves, berries and raffia.  I'm sure it's intended for a bowl display but I made up my own version.  

 I spotted a six pack of these large burlap leaves at Hobby Lobby.  They came in a few colors so I spread three out to set underneath the cloche.  They all had a bent wire on them like they were ready to be hung on a tree or something.

Last year's glass pumpkins and a golden metal leaf I found at a boutique store.   The white one lights up and has a timer.

So there you have my Reflecting Fall on the Entry Table!

  5. Liz,
    Gorgeous reflections of light on your Fall Entry Table, dear friend!!!
    I adore your velvet pumpkins in the wire cloche!!!
    Unique finds like your "gold"leaf are what I keep my eye out for when shopping, also!!!
    I found a new~to~me home decor shop last week that will soon become a favorite, I'm sure!!!
    They, too, sold individual leaves in bunches of 6!!!
    Clever idea to place the leaves beneath the cloche!!!
    Wishing you a wonderful first week of Autumn!!!
