A Porch Hutch Decorated for Autumn

Welcome to the 424th Tablescape Thursday!

I didn’t get a chance to set a table this week so I thought I’d share how I dressed the porch hutch a few weeks ago.



I pulled out some of my most favorite autumn/fall dishes and combined those with cute, pumpkin-shaped soup bowls.



The leafy glassware is from Dollar Tree several years ago. I love using it in table settings this time of year.



These photos aren’t really doing this dishware justice, it’s absolutely stunning in person! The colors are rich and beautiful!



Here’s a better picture from a previous tablescape here: Autumn Table Setting with Roasted Pumpkin Soup. This photo hasn’t been enhanced, the pattern is really this beautiful! I just love it!

Fortunately, they have brought it back again this year and it’s currently on sale here: Leaves Dishware. I wish they would never discontinue it.

Pier 1 Ashevile Leaf Dishware in Fall Table Setting


It doesn’t feel like fall here in Georgia right now with the 75+ degree weather we’ve been having the last few weeks, but I know that will soon be changing.



Looking forward to the beautiful table settings shared for this week’s Tablescape Thursday!

    Love how you dressed your hutch for fall. Love those dishes. We are having temperatures around 82-85 here in East Texas so it’s difficult to feel like Fall is here either. I am so ready to turn off my air conditioning.

  2. I love your hutch decorated for the seasons Susan! Your leaf dinnerware is beautiful against the green background!

  3. That looks great! I have those leaf dishes too and they really are striking in color. We’re having pretty warm weather too. This fall has been a beauty for us. I’m relishing each moment since the “S” word is the next thing to happen up here!

  4. Susan, I love the way you styled the hutch and I agree the colors of the dishes are stunning. Thanks for hosting! Pam @ Everyday Living

  5. Great party and I love all the links for more inspiring posts. Thanks for hosting……….

  6. Thank you Susan, love those pumpkins!

  7. Love, love the dinnerware and glasses! The leaf pattern is so serviceable throughout the fall season! You are so talented!

  8. Susan,
    Thanks for hosting every week! I’ve enjoyed it for years.
    Thanks for the tip with the dishes…beautiful.

  9. Hutch styling must be so much fun. I saw those plates recently and those colors are so deep and rich.( Also, great Halloween photo of the dinosaurs on IG!)

    • Aww, thanks Mia! Nancy did a lot of theater in high school and she can create some of the most amazing/realistic makeup for Halloween each year. My oldest grandson (2 years old) is big time into dinosaurs, so everyone dressed the part this year. lol

  10. Lovely dish display in the beautiful green hutch. Thanks for hosting Suszn!

  11. Such pretty dishes! Love them. Thanks again for hosting. Have a beautiful day. We could get up to 80 today! Crazy. Gotta go finish up the yardwork getting ready for the dreaded winter:)

    I am looking for a Hutch exactly like the one you have pictured. Could you please let me know where you have discovered this?

  13. I look forward to Thursdays each week to see what decorating “goody” you have for us. I was in touch with you a while back about my upcoming trip to Italy (fabulous, BTW!), and when we left Memphis, it was fall. We returned to summer! We’ve been up in the 80s since we’ve been home the past week and a half. I really want to wear a sweater! I don’t love winter, but do love the season in between summer and winter.
    I have these beautiful leaf dishes from Pier 1, too, and have to say they are my favorites! They look gorgeous on your hutch with your pumpkin soup bowls and leaf glassware. I am awaiting to see what you do with your hutch for Christmas and winter. I am going to put plaid and something yet undetermined on mine. You inspired me last year to have a hot cocoa bar, so I’m looking forward to having that on the bottom shelf of mine this winter. I just hope it gets chilly enough to have hot chocolate soon! Thanks for another wonderful TT post, Susan!

    • lol I know, it’s so confusing how it changed back to such warm weather!
      I may do my hot cocoa bar again, I loved using the sign I made for it out there. Don’t worry, Martha…that cold weather is coming, no doubt! 🙂

  14. Your hutch is so darling! Thanks for the party!

    Big Texas Hugs,
    Susan and Bentley

  15. I love yourlittle green hutch, it’s versatile for decorating it. The Fall dishes are adorable too.
    Thank you for the inspiration party.
    Havea lovely rest of the week dear.

    • Thanks, Fabby! Sometimes I wish I could paint it white, seems it would be easier to decorate, but white just wouldn’t work against that wall.
      Have a wonderful week and weekend! Is it as warm at your home as it is here, right now? We’re having the most unusual weather in the high 70’s!

    Hi, Susan, I bought these leaf dishes this year. I love them! I used them when I had a church group at my house. Several people commented about them. _I enjoy seeing your posts. Shirley

  17. bobbi duncan says

    I saw these at PierI last year–the leaves ARE more vibrant in person. I had just purchased their Harvest Garden set the year before, so all I could do when I saw these was sigh. Porch view, looking into your living room, looks so cozy. Hugs!

  18. Those Fall dishes are lovely. The pumpkin bowls area delight. Thanks for sharing.

  19. Bonnie Short says

    Hi Susan! I, too, fell in love with the leaf dinnerware. I bought the salads last year, but loved it so much I bought the other pieces just the other day. You’re right, so vibrant and rich. Perfect dishes for Autumn! I also bought the pumpkin set… Loved it too. Pier 1 is a dangerous place around the holidays!

  20. Jill from Southern New Hampshire says

    Those Asheville Leaves plates make my heart sing every time I see them ! I bought the salad plates a few years ago with a gift card from work – once I got it, I knew what store I was going to and what I was buying! They look so pretty with my rattan chargers and look great with my red Spice Route plates from Pier 1, as well as solid orange, brown, and mustard yellow plates, and especially with Mikasa Italian Countryside, which is our everyday pattern. I use them to set our table for two in the kitchen and hang the other two on the wall on a pretty plate rack that I update seasonally. I need to get them down from the attic this weekend when I switch out the fall décor from the Halloween stuff! The porch looks lovely with the inviting view inside your warm and cozy family room!

  21. EVERYTHING coordinates beautifully!!! franki

  22. Creative and beautiful as usual, Susan. Envying your weather as it is damp and somewhat cool here. -Brenda-

  23. I also have the leaves pattern, but only the centerpiece bowl – about 12″ in diameter. It sits in my living room on the coffee table from Labor Day until we decorate for Christmas in early December. I love it as well!

  24. I love the hutch and all the dishes, the Dollar Tree stems are especially pretty, actually all ideas and décor are lovely!

I'd love to hear from you! Please leave a comment!
