Alfresco Fall Table with Pumpkins

Happy Friday!

The remnants of Hurricane Delta moved through last weekend bringing several inches of rain

and we’re drying out and looking forward to some sunshine this weekend.

  Tuesday was glorious and I took advantage of some welcome

70 degree temps and blue skies to enjoy some outdoor dining.

Have a seat and join me at the table, we’re dining with pumpkins!

A black and white check runner with appliqued pumpkins was the inspiration for the table.

Harvest Blessing Pumpkin plates from Pier1 several years ago are layered on Buffalo check plates.

And a Succulent-Topped Pumpkin provides a centerpiece for the table.

Our leaves typically start to turn around the first week of November here in North Carolina

and the Autumn Blaze Maple is showing the first hint of fall color to come.

I collected a few crimson maples leaves to add to the table.

Along with hammered copper flatware.

And pumpkins add some welcome seasonal fall color

on the stone wall of the patio, alongside pots of mums.

    I love the alfresco tables in fall! Those succulents are really great. It looks to be a perfect setting for a welcome transition of weather. Even though we’re expecting a nice, cool and sunny weekend, we’re having rain and a frost watch today and tonight! Yikes. That’s NOT a welcome transition!

    I love a good day with pumpkins, we are twins with black and white accents in the garden. I LOVE fall, especially when you can feature pumpkins for two fun filled Autumny months before the instant jump to red and green. We are still in the 90s, I am EAGER for falls true arrival, but pumpkins and mums soothe my ragged soul!

    We certainly have been having some glorious autumn weather in N.C. The rain has been enough to keep the gardens looking good and the trees are just starting to turn. Now if I had a good recipe for all the acorns falling on our deck it would be perfect! Your pumpkin themed table setting is beautiful as always and I always love reading your blog.

      Very pretty table and always LOVE the view. The picture of the dock and boat with the leaves in the upper left corner is awesome. Hope you are able to squeeze in a few more boat rides before it gets too cold. Happy Fall 🍊🍂🍊🍂

    Oh that view!! Incredible beauty!

    Such a beautiful setting and your table screams autumn. The succulent pumpkins are lovely. Love your inspiration, the wonderful runner. It’s so nice to be blue to dine alfresco with cooling temps.

    I think there is no other image than a fecund, blushing pumpkin to represent the season. Love this! Thanks, we had our first hard frost last night, there was frost on the pumpkins this morning! Hugs, Sandi

    It’s all so beautiful! Sitting by the water, fall foliage, and a lovely table set by you. That tablecloth with the appliqués of pretty pumpkins is quite lovely!
    All so wonderful Mary!

    Just love everything about your table especially how you decorated the Cinderella Pumpkins with succulents. I am trying my hand with succulents for the first time in years and have had only one casualty. Everything about this table says charming. Thanks for sharing your creative talents. You help us to make this world a more beautiful place. We too said goodbye to Delta last weekend. I took advantage of the past few days which were beautiful in Northeastern NC and worked in the garden and cleaning up the yard but today has brought us wind and rain, more leaves to cleanup.

    What a pretty Fall table, Mary! Your runner and tablecloth are so perfect, and I’m loving your hammered copper flatware with those pretty plates. Your succulents are still looking good. I had a friend over for lunch today and we sat on my patio and I used my succulent pumpkin as the centerpiece. Thanks again for the inspiration!

  18. October 16, 2020 at 7:19 pm

    Such a beautiful table and setting. Your pumpkins and mums along the wall look fabulous!! So pretty!!

  19. October 16, 2020 at 10:09 pm

    Beautiful bountiful table!!!

  20. October 17, 2020 at 9:19 am

    A pumpkin palooza! I love the black and white checks paired with all the pretty pale pumpkins Mary, mixing all the patterns is so festive and your succulent topped pumpkins are beautiful! Such a magical setting overlooking the lake under a tree with the leaves just starting to turn. We are enjoying cooler temps and sunny days this weekend too and looking forward to our first fire outside tonight watching football! Have a wonderful weekend Mary 🎃

    We are also enjoying beautiful fall weather this weekend. Thank you.
    I love your heirloom pumpkin topped with succulents. The fall plates look so pretty with the buffalo checked plates and the pumpkin tablecloth and runner compliment the plate stack so well.
    Your pumpkins on the wall and mums are beautiful and festive.
    I see the foliage across the lake beginning to show color and it is such a lovely setting for alfresco dining.

    The weather has been glorious after Delta passed through. I love your table adorned for this most perfect season. The runner is stunning against the pumpkin tablecloth. What a delight it would be to sit by the beautiful view of the lake and dine alfresco! 🧡🍂
