Autumn’s Delight

I’m delighting in Autumn~

My favorite season!

A season for harvesting, layering,

and enjoying the fall foliage~

 I gathered some fruit, mini pumpkins and leaves, and layered my quilted coverlet with a warm, wool plaid throw to enjoy some Autumn’s Delight at the table.

This centerpiece is one you can pull together

in 5 minutes for your Thanksgiving table

or sideboard after you’ve collected your materials~

Leaves or branches, pears, apples,

pumpkins, grapes, and nuts

from the produce section of the grocery store. . .

No picks or floral foam required~

just draping, tucking, building, and

adding your fruit or veggies in a basket,

urn, or tray~

The best part is it’s economical,

since it can be eaten later :)

    Wow, Mary….these photos are truly magazine worthy. Autumn’s delight indeed, and I love the autumn’s delight china pattern. The plates are so cute! Super idea for the centerpiece….easy and edible! Have a great week!

    Autumn delights is right! Wonderful color in apples and pears! Perfect for Fall. Not nice to tempt me with Johnson Bros Autumns Delight. You know how I love Johnson Bros anything!!!!! I giggled at “knife” and “spoon”. Love the touch of whimsy! Another winner, Mary! Well done!

    A ahh! How pretty, an autumnal masterclass!

    Now this is really an Autumn Delightful! What a beautiful table setting of so many wonderful autumn beauties; the fruit, the plates and especially the linens!

    Just so pretty. You’ve inspired me to use my checked and plaid napkins together..

  8. November 5, 2012 at 11:12 am

    Mary I love that pattern…I have the Pomona pattern and I think the Autumn pattern would coordinate very nicely together…I always love to see your table settings beside the lake…always so gorgeous!!!..just perfection!!

    Autumn’s delight……….a visual delight! Mary, I can just imagine how beautiful your store was. You are a master at staging exquisite sights. We’ve been using the lovely Gold Leaves settings, which I plan to feature in a tablescape soon. The weather here is beginning to cool, so alfresco dining is a possibility. I don’t get tables created and photographed with the ease and efficiency you do. Makes me wonder what it is I actually do with my time. LOL Thanks for always inspiring me to reach higher! ~ Sarah

    Stunning! God bless your hands!!!

    I love the expert mix of pattern, Mary! I am such a huge fan of pattern mixing when it’s done right, and it is definitely done right here! My favorite kind of floral arranging is that which requires no floral foam…just nipping and tucking until the look is perfect. You’ve done, as always, an outstanding job of that! Every time I see that fabulous flatware I just want to crawl inside the computer screen!!!!!!!!! When I first saw it at PB, I had “a moment” in the store! :-)

  13. November 5, 2012 at 2:44 pm

    Mary, as always, another beautiful setting. The centerpiece is just stunning! I love how you mix patterns and blend colors, creating the most awesome masterpieces!

  14. November 5, 2012 at 3:14 pm

    What a splendid tablescape, Mary! I love the fruit centerpiece! Your china is lovely for Autumn and so are your chargers! Would love to sit and dine at your table. It is a delight! Thanks for sharing and have a beautiful week.
