Easy Autumn Tablescape

Photobucket


I put away our Halloween decorations, and although I did leave out a few pumpkins, the house seemed a little bare.  So I decided to put together a quick tablescape in our dining room.  I used a runner from Hobby Lobby, a set of three glass vases, French wired ribbon, leaves, and maple leaf taper holders and tapers from Williams-Sonoma.

I think the runner would be more fun for Halloween, but I forgot I had it  ;P


I have been working on my painting a lot this week, and I hope to start a furniture project soon. What projects are you tackling this week?

  2. How pretty the table looks, the bronze coloured runner is lovely.
    I like your idea of tying the three vases together to create a centrepiece, very clever.

  3. I love the elegance of it and the leaves of course. I have to have fake ones here as we don't get many real leaves with that gorgeous fall color. I am going to try and finish a bookshelf I have been painting for the kitchen. I think it needs a 3rd coat as I was going from green to white.

  11. Good Morning RJ Sweetie...
    Oh how beautiful your table looks all ready for Thanksgiving. I love the table runner, and the user of the vases with the fall leaves inside and tied with that ribbon? Just so elegant. I love the way you left the ribbon long and let it extend the table as well. So pretty and different. I love that most of all.

    Your tapers are the icing on the cake. Don't they look pretty framing the center? Beautiful job RJ. Just beautiful. Stand up and take a bow, as I am clapping and clapping.

    Many hugs and so much love, Sherry

  18. Ohh, I have those three glass vases. I usually use floating candles and cranberries and evergreen pieces at Christmas. I have leaves and ribbon, so perhaps I will copy your autumn decoration!
