Beautiful Wheat Centerpiece with Pumpkin Tureens

Welcome to the 59th Tablescape Thursday!

Happy Fall, Y’all! Last week I shared a “fall inspired” tablescape out on the porch. This week I’m sharing another “fall” tablescape created by Bonnie, a talented, reader of BNOTP, who shares our love for tablescaping. You may remember the post I did a few weeks ago showing several of Bonnie’s beautiful tablescapes.

Feast your eyes on Bonnie’s gorgeous fall tablescape! I fell in love with her chandelier last time, but isn’t it extra wonderful all decorated with colorful fall leaves! And, the simplicity of the golden wheat in the vases, makes such a beautiful statement in this table setting.

Love the darling, pumpkin soup tureens…

Ok, I know we are supposed to be looking at the tablescape, but I can’t keep my eyes off Bonnie’s beautiful kitchen. Notice how the shape of the glass in the doors going into the dining room, mimics the shape of the cabinet doors in the kitchen. Love that! I think we need a tour of Bonnie’s kitchen!

Beautiful chargers, and so perfect for this table setting!

Have you ever seen a vase like this? I’ve had a thing for pineapples ever since my first trip to Colonial Williamsburg where I learned the pineapple is the symbol for hospitality…so these really caught my eye. Ok, my sister says she thinks these are artichokes on the vases.  Whatever they are, I sure do like ‘em!

Lovely amber stemware…

    Hi Susan,

    I am thilled to be back for another tablescape party with you again this week, and to be number one on your list is very cool. I must have arrived a little earlier this week.

    As you know I love your party and I love visiting all your friends to see what their creating.

    I love Bonnie's home and her tablesetting, I think I will have to seriously make a trip to the U.S.A. soon just to see all these fantastic items that you have over there. My Aussie friends have always said, Coty, you won't believe the shops.

    Have a fantastic day,

    xx Coty Farquhar

    Thanks, as always, for hosting. We're all in your debt!

    Bonnie's table is lovely, and the photographs capture it beautifully.

    Hope the rest of your week goes well.

    Bill

  20. Susan, thank you for sharing another of Bonnie's creative tables. Like you, I'd love a tour of her home. The kitchen looks to be full of charm! I like the way Bonnie layered the textiles on her table and used the center seating across from each other rather than around the table. Of course the dishes are all perfect. The entire tablescape is perfect! ~ Sarah

  21. A fabulous fall table. Please send along our request for a tour of Bonnie's home – great tease showing a glimpse of that spectacular kitchen!

  25. marty (A Stroll Thru Life) says:

    Your table is just lovely. All of the dishes, linens and silver are beautiful and so well put together. Your pineapple vases are gorgeous and I really love the use of the wheat. Such a beautiful table. Hugs, Marty

  26. Designs on 47th Street says:

    Susan, it was quite fun to see the tablescape your friend Bonnie put together for us. (I have a dear friend named Bonnie too!) This is just picture perfect and the feeling of warmth came through strongly with the orange pumpkins and all the extras she put into this. Lovely!
    I linked to you on my new post showing my "Boo" candle winning from your anniversary drawing! I LOVE IT! Thanks again!
    Donna

  27. Hi Susan,I love the chandelier…. Bonnies tablescape is beautiful
    xoxo

  28. Hi Susan, I am glad you have Bonnie featured today again. She is a very talented and creative tablescaper. The whole table is simply gorgeous!…Christine

  29. Are you sure you & Bonnie aren't related? Perhaps twins, separated at birth??? Because you BOTH have such a wonderful eye for color & style.
    That was very creative to use 2 tablerunners across from each other to form placemats. *Rettabug rapidly scribbles notes to herself*

    Thanks for hosting TT & for sharing your friend's talents along with your own, Susan.

    The whole setting is just lovely as is her entire home. Please ask if we can eat in the kitchen next time so we can get a closer look of that gorgeous room????

  30. nannykim/ spindle cottage says:

    Really nice!! I even like Bonnie's chairs!! And you are right, I like the way the doors mimic the ones in the kitchen. A very happy tablescape!

  31. Julie Harward says:

    That was so pretty and inspiring…the vases matched the pineapples in the light fixture above too! I'm getting ideas for Thanksgiving! Thank you :D

  32. Someone's Mom says:

    I am in awe of how beautiful the tablesetting (and the rest of Bonnie's home) is. I love the large vases, and the view into the kitchen.

    Gorgeous!!

  42. Cass @ That Old House says:

    ACK! I read your post too quickly — skipped right over that it was Bonnie's tablescape — I was in such a rush to see the pictures. My apologies to Bonnie… and to you. The table IS fabulous — no silly goof on my part changes that. LOVE those wee pumpkins!
    Cass

  43. The Tablescaper says:

    Thanks so much for letting us see your friend's tablescapes. That tureen and the individual bowls are gorgeous! Penney's, huh, who'd thought?

    - The Tablescaper

  44. Oh Susan, I love this table! It's so pretty and the centerpiece is just adorable! Beautiful!

  45. Love the Decor! says:

    Love love LOVE this table!!
    The soup tureens are adorable and the garland on the chandelier is just the right touch. Way to go!!

  46. This is all so very incredible! Bonnie has some beautiful things! Thanks for sharing and for the inspiration for my fall tablescape! Hugs from Conroe, TX!

  47. Hi Susan,
    Bonnie has set a beautiful table. And I adore her chairs. They have such intricate backs, just lovely. Also, the vases are so unusual,I just love them. I've got a few vases of wheat (or whatever it is!) around my place too. But not in such pretty vases, sigh!

    BTW – I read your comment at Julia's about the bottle tree – I've been wanting to make one forever, but my hubby is not too sure about them and so I feel a little intimidated to try…I want to make mine with all blue bottles out in the back yard under the redwoods….I'm assuming we're both thinking of the same kind of bottle tree?
    Have a great weekend!
    Bye for now my friend,
    XO

  48. Fifi Flowers says:

    LOVE the little pumpkins on the plate!!! Your tables are ALWAYS FAB!!!

  49. I have missed playing Tablescape with you guys. I just need to get motivated again. Great job on this weeks post. Hubby told me the other day "it's time to get the fall dishes out". Now, that's bad when even HE notices it's not done yet. But, at least he pays attention. Sometimes don't we wonder if they do? Have a great weekend.

  50. honeysuckle says:

    I love your colorful table in the daytime but the glow of candlelight really shows all the gorgeous fall colors in the amber glow.

  51. Diane @ Four Paws and Co says:

    Oh be still my heart! I LOVE pumpkins and Bonnie's are just too gorgeous for words! She had a beautiful kitchen & dining room. Will she share more of her home with us? ☺ Diane

  52. Susan, This is so much fun. Your tables really do inspire me. I think I need "blogging for dummies". I am new at this and cannot seem to get your button for tablescapes. Help! Cindy at Home Sweet Home.

  53. Susan, I am running out of words to describe your tablescapes, each one is beautiful and unique in its own way. I am having fun playing with and looking for new dishes.

  55. Thanks to Bonnie and you for bringing us this amazing table.
    I am in love with her chandy decoration.
    i have tried to find an email for The Tassel House to thank her for the lovely tassel I won from you.??

  56. Beansieleigh says:

    Pineapple or artichokes??.. LOL! Thank you for my morning giggles! Bonnie's table is beautiful and an inspiration! I ALWAYS enjoy seeing everybody's Thursday posts, and still hope to join in "one of these days"!!.. Looks like for now, I'll have to worry about MOVING first!.. But I'm looking forward to trying my hand at it! ~tina

  57. "Blossom" says:

    "STUNNING" This is an amazing tablescape thursday. She had thought of everything and it's all beautiful. I to think we need a kitchen tour. Her wall color is amazing too. Every detail on this table is well thought out and just makes you want to sit right down and talk about her decorate skills; she is awesome.

  58. Very pretty table!
    Everything looks wonderful, as usual! Love your attention to detail, your family/guests must all be so happy to sit at your table!
    All the best,

  62. Cheryl B. says:

    Hi Susan, I decided I needed a break from the task I've given myself this month of verifying which of the "Theme Day('s)" I have listed are still active and which no longer are, so I chose to do some "Tablescape" surfing ;-p {I know that both of your "theme day('s)" are still up and active because for 1 – I find evidance of them ALL over blogland, and for 2, you sent me an email after the Sept. posting of lists stating such (Thank-you!).

    On the tablescape you yourself highlighted today – I really liked how she contrasted the fall against the white, it gave it this added something …

    Well, I'm off to surf tablescapes … thanks for providing the resource to do so ;-}

  63. This tablescape is beautiful! I'm off to look at more tablescapes because my table is very bare right now. Thanks for hosting the party.

  64. susan, this is so beautiful!!
    I just love the orange pumpkins!!
    all of them!!

I want to go to Home Goods and TJ Max today. Kitchen project is now completed..I feel the urge to shop and I bet I'll find something I just can't resist!

  76. I'm not familiar with Bonnie. Don't think I've ever seen any of her tablescapes before. This is beautiful! What is the name of her blog? Need to check her blogs out more.

  77. Wow! I am in awe!!! So lovely and the night lighting was even more gorgeous……truely inspired…..
