Three Harvest Tables

It finally feels like Fall in South Florida.   The temps were in the low 70's last evening which was a nice change.  I'm sure the 90 degree temps will return very quickly, but I'm going to enjoy it for now.   This weeks table is decorated in the Fall leaf theme with a few pumpkins mixed in.   I have too many harvest/Fall themed dishes to choose from so I  tried out three designs before I settled with the leaf top plate with a mini pumpkin.   I posted all three designs so let me know which one is your favorite. 

Harvest table using Boston Warehouse into Autumn leaf dishes found at Tuesday Morning several years ago. This table is my favorite of the three designs.

Up close view of each leaf plate along with the Sur La Table pumpkin embossed salad plates I found on clearance for .50 cents each early this year.  

I used my Grandmother Smith's dough bowl to hold a pretty small mum I found at Trader Joe's.   I filled it with my white tail deer sheds I picked up on a ranch in Montana many years ago.  I never dreamed I would be using them as decor on dining tables. Their normal display is atop my curio cabinet nestled in green ivy. 


The pumpkin plate table top. I purchased the pumpkin plates at Walmart several years ago.  They were part of the Better Home and Gardens collection.

The golden antler napkin rings are currently available at Pier One .  The napkins were from Pier One years ago.  

This was the first table set up.   It's a pretty table using the wood coasters with a mini pumpkin on top, but I needed more excitement so I decided to use the leaf plates. I coated the mini pumpkins with Mod Podge so hopefully they will last for a few weeks.

The stack!   Seeing that I used the plaid fabric charger plate covers on top of the leaf print tablecloth I needed to separate the two patterns.  I used a harvest orange straw placemat on top of the tablecloth then the fabric charger plate.  The avocado green dinner plates are from Dollar Tree.   The cream salad plates are from Sur La Table last season.  I was hoping to find a pattern name on the back, but it was not listed.   I placed a wooden coaster on top of the plate as a base for the mini pumpkin.   In the end I used the Boston Warehouse leaf plates on the final tablescape with the mini pumpkin on top.

I used ceramic glass pumpkin bowl with lid on the server along with other Fall items.   The gold mercury glass lit candle holder pedestals with mirror inserts are from Valerie Parr Hill.  They are currently available at QVC.   The ivory candles are Luminara Flameless with remotes from QVC.   These are the six inch candles and a bit pricy, but well worth it in the long run.  They look so real and I love the fact they are remote controlled or you can set the timer.  I have one in my glass curio that I turn on at night to light up the beautiful glassware.

I hope you enjoy the three tables and let me know which table is your favorite.

  3. I agree with you, the first tablescape with the leaf plates is my favorite. But all of them are lovely. I really like your centerpiece in your grandmother's dough bowl - I've been wishing for a wooden dough bowl for many years (and wishing I'd had the foresight to ask my grandmother to leave me hers) and I just finally found an affordable one on clearance at Pottery Barn. It's not old but it looks good and I'm using it with pumpkins and fall leaves in it, too. Thanks for sharing your tables.

    2. Thank you Joy. This the first time I've used the dough bowl on a table. I have it on display on a bakers rack along with my other Grandmother's wooden butter press and a few other items. I doubt I will ever use it to make bread, but I remember my Grandmother using it. I'm happy you found one. I'm sure it's so pretty filled with pumpkins and Fall leaves.
