A Tablescape to Celebrate Fall

Welcome to the 111th Tablescape Thursday!

We are finally starting to get some cooler temps here in Georgia. I have to be honest with you guys…I’m just not a cool weather fan. But I do love fall colors so putting together a fall tablescape was a lot of fun.

I kept my centerpiece simple since I had a lot going on color wise in this tablescape. Ummm, wonder how a few acorns from the huge oak tree that lives in my front yard would have looked scattered here and there on the table? Have to file that idea away for later…

You may remember these soup tureens from my Thanksgiving tablescape last year. I found them last fall on sale for an great price in Williams-Sonoma near my home. They sold out quickly…don’t know if they are available again this year or not.


They came in two colors…gold and this rich brown…

Salad plates are from Pier 1 a couple of years ago. I found six, 4-piece place settings (dinner, salad, bowl and mug) plus a large platter, cake plate, triple divided server and trivets for around $100 total, as I recall. Can’t beat those prices. Watch for the sales at the end of the season…best time to buy.

Dinner plates are Country Cupboard by Pfaltzgraff…the leaf and floral design is just perfect for fall.

Other pieces in a place setting of this china include a salad plate, bowl and mug…

Candle Holder is from Hobby Lobby a few years back…

Napkin rings were purchased at Kohl’s (I think) a few years ago…

They came in two color/designs. Napkins are from Marshalls a few years ago. Gold, glass chargers are from the clearance isle of Hobby Lobby at the end of fall last year.

Flatware is Treble Clef by Gourmet Settings…


If you follow BNOTP on Facebook (link is on sidebar) you already know about these cute leafy glasses from Dollar Tree. I posted on BNOTP FB wall the day I bought them and quite a few folks ran out and bought them the next day. Who can resist at a $1 a glass! Gold goblets are a find at A Classy Flea recently…8 glasses for only $18. Love the Flea!

Found Mr. Squirrel with his salt and pepper acorns last year at Cracker Barrel. Many of you also bought him after I posted about him on Facebook  .He looks rather happy with the acorns he’s gathered for fall.

Thanks for stopping by for a fall evening on the porch…



Looking forward to viewing your beautiful tablescapes!

  1. The red and gold together is such a wonderful combination for autumn. I just love your amber goblets and glass chargers.

  2. Christi @ A Southern Life says

    Beautiful! I love the Pfaltzgraff. So classic and it fits so many occasions. The gold goblets are just perfection with this setting and what a lovely touch of whimsy with the little squirrel salt and pepper. Beautiful fall colors!

  3. katskraps4kids says

    Just gorgeous! You have so many beautiful things to make it look just perfect! Oh, come decorate for me- PLEEEEEEASE! =)

    But honestly, I hope to have a nice group of things to do a nice table. May take me a few years but, little by little. I guess you probably didn't have everything at once either. But you set a LOVELY table dear lady.

  4. Andrea at Opulent Cottage says

    So perfect for fall! And dangit, I saw those plates at Pier 1, went home to think about them, and when I went back to buy them, they were gone! I'm glad to see that you got a set, and I can enjoy looking at yours. Thank you always Susan, for hosting – this is truly my favorite blogging event!

  5. Miss Merry says

    What a wonderful table for fall. All your Autumn colors are so complimentary and I love the squirel and acorns – and the lantern!

  6. Happier Than a Pig in Mud says

    Such a pretty table Susan! Love your acorn tureens and amber glasses! Beautiful give-away too, thanks:@)

  7. Such a pretty table. Love the colors, dishes, and accessories! Very festive.

  8. Jacqueline says

    Another pretty table as always. Have you ever repeated anything? I love the squirrels and the acorns, they are just adorable. Thanks for hosting the funnest party of the week!

  9. I love the acorn tureens. Pretty Fall table, Susan.

  10. Susan, The simplicity of this table just says so much! Love the Pfaltzgraff pattern and I have got to find that silverware! The glasses are similar to a pattern I picked up at Kroger and used in my post. Mine were a buck, too.
    Thanks for continuing to host this popular party! ~ Sue

  11. What a well put together fall tablescape! Colors are beautiful and I love the candle centerpiece. You always do such nice job!

    I'm loving the cooler nights here where I live. The days are finally crisp and sunny. Now all I need is your back porch!


  12. Beautiful tablescape! I love all the amber, and those individual acorn tureens are so cute–just perfect for some hot soup on a chilly autumn day!

  13. Love those adorable acorn tureens! Thanks for hosting πŸ™‚

  14. Yellow Rose Arbor says

    I'm not a cool fan either, but I'm enjoying the cooler temps that just arrived in FL!

    Beautiful tablescape! Love the acorn soup tureens and the big goblets! I need those leaf napkin rings for my tablescape today!


  15. Life on the Edge says

    I love this rich and warm autumn table. I did see those glasses at Dollar Tree last week! But the local store only had a couple and I didn't really have any extra money to spend. However, if I see more, I'm going to snatch them up! I got some great glasses there last fall.

    Love, love those creamy white Pfalzgraff dishes!

    Life on the Edge

  16. Tricia@The Dull and the Dutiful says

    Susan, this table is really stunning! The rich colors, the darling acorn bowls, the leaf napkin rings — I love it all! I always appreciate your telling us the sources of all your pretty things.

  17. I love the napkins. Just got them this weekend in brown. The trebel clef flatware goes wonderful with this. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I really appreciate all your hard work on TT. I cant wait for Thursdays and its my first time linking up! Finally! Yea!

  18. How pretty! I love the acorn bowls! I wonder if they are like the ones I bought last winter in the outlet. Mine are called acorn and oak…haven't taken them out of the box yet!
    I resisted those glasses, I am so proud of myself. Love the red you brought in, it looks great.
    About the acorns…I read on someone's blog they did that and as the house warmed up, the bugs/worms came out, so good move NOT to do that! Use fake, I mean faux ones! πŸ™‚
    Thanks for hosting, Susan!

  19. Entertaining Women says

    The Twiggery has some wonderful things. My favorite has to be the outdoor slip covers for the chaise and the patio chairs. I can just picture them on my back porch. Your tablescape is wonderful, as always. The individual soup tureens are spectacular! Thank you for always sharing your marvelous designs with us. Cherry Kay

  20. food for thought says

    so love those acorns, such a cheerful table~

  21. Yvonne @ StoneGable says

    Susan, Thank you for hosting TT. I look so forward to setting a table each week and even more exciting is visiting all the creative and beautiful tablescapes!

    Your lovely fall table is so rich with color and texture!
    I just love the Pier 1 dishes. I remember them from another table you set, they certainly made an impression! Beautiful!!!!
    What a good eye to find such gorgeous goblets at a wonderful price.
    Fall is my favorite season~ and your table is a perfect tribute.
    xo Yvonne

  22. As always, a gorgeous table! I do love those salad plates especially. Those are my favorite colors! Thanks so much for hosting!!

  23. Very beautiful, Susan! I especially love the dishes and napkin rings.

    I didn't have time to do a tablescape this week. However, I thought I'd come over to look around at the others.


  24. That is a beautiful fall table you have set and I love the soup tureens!

    Thank you for hosting again,


  25. Beautiful fall tablel, Susan. I do like the cooler temps and love the colors of fall, so I'm a happy girl. πŸ˜‰
    The little squirrel salt and pepper is too cute!
    Happy Fall! ~ Sarah

    Love those lidded acorn bowls. Love the touch of cold in the air. It makes thinking and decorating for Fall, all the better.

  28. Jenny at Henrietta's House says

    Hi Susan! Tonight I posted my tablescape and promptly visited your site to link to the party. And imagine my surprise to see that we were on the same wavelength this week. I also have acorn dishes with some cute squirrels! How funny!! Love your table and look forward to Thursdays every week!!



  29. I don't think I've ever known anyone with so many beautiful dishes and all the great things to go with them.
    This is absolutely beautiful.

    Thanks for hosting, dear one..I did a tailgatescape…:)) Had a lot of fun with it.
    xo bj

  30. laurie @ bargain hunting says

    Susan, I'm going to have to go to my $ Tree and see if they have those glasses! I really like those. I have the dinner plates like your salad plates from Pier 1. Now I need some of those acorn tureens! They are so cute! laurie

  31. Mid-Atlantic Martha says

    How pretty your autumn table is! Love the fall color and those wonderful tureens!

  33. LambAround says

    I love looking through all these beautiful photos every week. Thanks for hosting πŸ™‚

  34. Sue (Someone's Mom) says

    Those acorn tureens really steal the show…so perfect for this time of year. I think real acorns scattered around your lantern would be really pretty, maybe a few fall leaves if they are turning down there.

    Speaking of the lantern, it is gorgeous. Everything is perfect on the porch this week!

  35. Love your table setting especially the acorns and flatware! Thanks for hosting!

  36. I just LOVE those acorn tureens! Your table is so pretty and FALLISH! I love Fall, just hate winter, LOL! Great giveaway too! Fingers crossed:):) XO, Pinky

  37. I love the acorns! Thanks for hosting another Tablescape Thursday!

  38. Jan @ BellaCasa says

    Your tablescapes never cease to amaze me. I'd think by now that a person would have tablescape block. It is good that you have some many different dishes to play with because I can tell it gives you such pleasure. Thanks as always for sharing your talent, time, and blog.

    Jan @ BellaCasa

  39. Jess @ Frugal with a Flourish says

    Love that candle holder. And the place settings are just beautiful! Thanks for hosting!

  40. Susan (Between Naps on the Porch) says

    Jan, I love that new term you just coined, "tablescape block." LOL I'm going to use that one day. I sometimes get centerpiece block…but so far haven't suffered with tablescape block. πŸ™‚

  41. Life with L says

    Beautiful color combination. Your glasses are wonderful! Perfect for Fall. The soup tureens are adorable. The acorns are a great touch….Thanks for hosting another fabulous party. Linda

  42. Linda (More Fun Less Laundry) says

    Hi Susan, your table is so inviting! I have that flatware–it's so much fun! But I really do need the tureens for Thanksgiving dinner–think I will check out W-S. Tomorrow I head up to Parents' Weekend and pass TWO Cracker Barrels so I will be on the lookout for cute little table toys! Linda

  43. Purnima@a creative project says

    Magical!! Beautiful plates!!!

  44. Dianna@DecorMadeSimple says

    The porch is the perfect place for a fall table scape. I love your gold chargers.

  45. Handy Man, Crafty Woman says

    I don't know how you make so many pretty tablescapes! I just tried my first one and it wasn't even very elaborate…phew! Lots of work! Thanks for hosting the blog party.

  46. Alycia Nichols says

    Those are fabulous soup tureens indeed! I love those individual ones. They add color and style to the table, and each person feels a tad bit more special! Have a great week!

  47. Tales From My Empty Nest says

    Your tablescapes always amaze me!!! I LOVE those soup tureens. They are gorgeous! And the little squirrel salt/pepper shaker is precious. You are just so talented. Love & blessings from NC!

  48. Fifi Flowers says

    LOVE those soup tureens!

  49. Hi, Susan,
    Beautiful table as usual. My favorite thing………the Dollar Tree glasses. Hope I'm not too late to get me some. πŸ™‚

  50. Susan (My Place to Yours) says

    I love the dinner plates. Don't remember seeing them before… STILL looking for the DT stemware; can't believe we never got it here — or else I somehow missed it! It adds such a nice touch to a Fall tablescape.

  51. SavannahGranny says

    As usual you have put forth a beautiful tablescape. It never ceases to amaze me the different tables that you come up with. They are always fresh and new. I love the salt and pepper shakers. Thanks for hosting such a fun party.
    I published my second post at your party. I really am lacking in the photography. I am going have to play around with my program. Please feel free to offer suggestions. Thank you again, Ginger
    Oh, I didn't see the FB post but I purchased the same glasses at Dollar Tree in Illinois. Love Dollar Tree!

  52. Susan~ I seem to always forget to leave a comment for you. I'm sorry! I go straight to the links and you get neglected.
    Anyway, I love every single detail on your table! The candleholder is so beautiful.

  53. Dear Susan,
    as always, you made a super nice table. I love everything, especially the details like the glasses, the napkins and rings and the cute squirrels.
    Greetings, Johanna

  54. Gail @ Victorian at Heart says

    Your Fall porch looks fantastic and lovely for a relaxing dinner on the porch. Aren't you glad we don't all live close by to invite ourselves over. Thanks for sharing an inspiring post.

  55. Hi Susan
    As always your tablescape is fabulous. I went to twiggery and found some tea things I love. Brown toile teacups, dessert plates and 8" pedestal cake stand. It is always a joy to join your party. I just love, love, love it.

  56. That is so gorgeous, if I didn't already love fall, I would now.

  57. Your tables are gorgeous, now where is the storage shed?

  58. I love the reds, golds, and browns, such a warm inviting table. The acorn covered dishes are adorable…will have to see if they still carry them.

  59. Love your tablescape today (well always) but this fall one just hit the right note..

  60. Kate Dickerson says

    Susan – I just love your covered acorn bowls – so great for fall. And your adorable squirrel!!

  61. Susan-Beautiful as always! Love the cutwork napkins!

  62. Auntie Bliss says

    How beautiful. And the windows right there for another view! I love your pumpkin soup bowls and that lighted centerpiece!

  63. This is beautiful as always, Susan. Thank you for hosting such a special meme. I finally got the courage to enter my very first post. Hoping to participate often but will most definitely continue to enjoy viewing all the gorgeous entries each week.


  64. Hello Susan,
    The colors and textures make an outstanding combination. Your table is just beautiful!

    I am really happy to participate in Tablescape Thursday again.
    This is the first table I’ve done in months due to my illness with a small stoke on April 2, 2010.

  65. I remember your tureens from last Thanksgiving. I couldn't stop thinking about that pretty Spode Woodlands china either. I love seeing your great tureens used again.

  66. Your table is gorgeous! I can't wait to go and see all of the others!

  67. lulumusing says

    Once again your porch setting is terrific. Fall colors and textures are just the best to work with, and you've done it well. Thanks for giving us all a chance to share.

  68. Susan,you always have the most inspiring tablescapes!Love visiting on your porch.

  69. Well, hmmm… my mother just mentioned to me that I had not commented here…

    I did. At least I thought that I did. I typed and clicked SOMETHING last night.

    Oh well…what is traveling around cyberspace is that this table is right up my alley and that I am trying not to covet those acorn bowls. I love it.

    Thanks, Susan, for hosting this wonderful party. You rock!

  70. The Quintessential Magpie says

    Susan, cute as can be! LOVE the acorn soups. And that squirrel holding those nuts… DARLING!


    Sheila πŸ™‚

  71. Susan, Love it all but that cute squirrel salt and pepper stole my heart! Love the Cracker Barrel but the closest one to me is about a 45 minute drive so I don't get to go often!

  72. Elegant AND cozy – great combination !!!! I can not even imagine all the planning, work and energy that goes into these spectacular tablescapes !

    thanks for sharing,

  73. Gloria (The Little Red House with the White Porch) says

    So pretty! Love the leaf goblets and the napkins — I just love the cut-outs on the napkins.
    Best regards,

  74. Dreamgoddess says

    What a beatiful setting! Your squirrel is too cute.

  75. Your table is gorgeous. I have not had the chance to participate for a while but just had to come and visit for some inspiration. I have been collecting things slowly to help when setting my table, your posts always inspire me.

  76. Hello! I LOVE your blog! Just wanted you to know…I just found the leaf glasses & goblets at Dollar Tree this year (2012) and bought 12 of each! WHAT a find!!!!!

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