I am so surprised that I too am ready for fall to come. (Although I have always loved Halloween). I have been a summer person my entire life but this year… I think I might put my summer decorations away and get out the fall ones today. All of your settings are adorable and I loved the woodland creature salad plates. Margaret Deer is to cute. We have a set of twin fawns we see almost daily- life in the woods is good. Peace
Good morning Mary! Hoping all your Fall Tablescapes encourage Fall to come soon!
Thanks for sharing your beautiful masterpieces. I’m sure you have your favorite tables but I always seem to gravitate towards those that have pumpkins…a clear statement that Autumn has arrived!
You can certainly tell that you love Fall Mary! The quote at the end is the best, “There are two times of year, Autumn and waiting for Autumn” Pumpkins are going to be arriving soon, can’t wait! All of your tables are worth looking at again and again, and I especially love the Pontoon Picnic! I can’t wait until it’s cool enough for patio entertaining again and football watching!
I started yesterday getting my Fall regalia out and I too am ready for cooler weather, etc. I think my favorite(s) of your Fall tables are the ones with the “Whimsical Animals”! They are a real sight to see! Whomever designed those have a very vivid imagination!! I love them all! Thanks for sharing!! 🌽🍎🍏🍂🍁🌾🌻
Mary, All the tablescapes are beautiful. I’m so ready for fall! Your fall plates are all gorgeous. Williams Sonoma and Pier One always had such colorful fall plates in the past. I miss the Pier One stores! They’re online but it’s not the same variety of merchandise. I haven’t been to WS this year is as it’s not near any HomeGoods!🤣 The woodland friend plates captured my heart the first time I saw them on your blog as they’re just so cute! Love your various table linens and throws. Your bouquets and pumpkins are all pretty. I enjoyed the roundup. Thanks for the post and inspiration. Have a great week sweet friend. Clara❤️
Thank you Clara! I’m beyond ready for fall. I hope you’re safe from Ida’s path and all the flash flooding to follow. ♥
Thank you Mary! You stay safe as well. Looks like it might hook over your way. Happy Monday ❤️
All of these tablescapes are inspiring. Love all these visual feasts. I must decorate my table now. Love the quote and your collection of beautiful tables. Thank you.
Just beautiful! Love your boat decked out for fall, very creative as are all the great scapes. Thank you for sharing all this inspiration!
Thanks for all the years of beauty, I needed this to try and breath and relax… The fires are breaking my heart and soul, I grew up at Tahoe and today is crucial for its survival as 1000s evacuate to its very shores. High heat, winds, and low humidity are critical the next 24 hours, our air has been toxic for weeks with sore throats and red eyes, it feels like it will never end. its nice to see your beauty because frankly I feel overwhelmed with worry for all… Fall is my favorite season, but this year I just want a wet cold winter for the west!
These are all lovely and what a variety! I always enjoy visiting your blog – thank you for providing such a bright, inspiring place.
Mary, I am ready for autumn! I could not possibly pick a favorite. Each one is stunning. I always enjoy a seat at your alfresco tables!
If Mary is posting fallscapes, then fall has officially arrived (at least in my book)! I admire your work year-round, but your fall blogs have always been my favorites. Your posts always make my time at HomeGoods more interesting and creative. I love the layers and depth of your new table presentations. That said, I’ll never tire of the photos of your fall pontoon picnic. It’s my idea of a perfect day, and probably one of my all time favorites!
All of these Fall tablescapes are absolutely gorgeous. I’m ready to go and start one even with the temps in the 100s. Will refrain for a couple more weeks.
So gorgeous Mary! Each tablesetting is a delightful mix of colors, patterns and textures. You are truly an artist in realm of tablescaping. Jerrie
If I wasn’t ready for fall Mary and your post would have just pushed me over the edge. So beautiful each and every table but I’m partial to those with your Woodland Friends!
I like how you’ve incorporated hydrangea brown into some of your centerpieces. I have lots of that look at the moment!
What a stunning round up of tablesettings Mary! Your love of fall shines through your tables! Thank you for putting me in an autumn state of mind. 🍂🍁🌾🌻🧡
I cannot pick a favorite, they are ALL so stunningly gorgeous, Mary. Spring and Fall are my favorite seasons, but the scales may be tipping toward Fall as my top fave. Is that a reflection of my season of life??? You make it look so appealing and inviting. Your inventory and ideas are seemingly endless!
How you come up with so many color variations and themes is amazing.
So much inspiration and beauty, Mary! I’d be happy to sit at any of your tables. I’ll look forward to seeing your newest creation on September 7th.
Each table is incredible, but I love the golden leaf see through pumpkin candle holder and that lovely soft plaid throw. Also the centerpiece with the fluffy grass is an all time favorite too. You amaze me at the lovilness of each! I love Fall as well with the vibrant colors and cool night’s, but I’m enjoying the last of summer to the end. The weather is perfect for laying on my floaty, bobbing in the water with the warm sun and puffy white clouds while visiting friends at Houghton Lake.
So lovely and inspiring! We have a pontoon boat and I am so inspired by your inviting pontoon decor, I am going to do a version of this myself, even if it is just for my husband and I !!
Exquisite images! Thank you, Mary, for the beautiful visual feast.
I’m wondering if the owl plates featured in the top of the blog are a recent purchase, and if you might provide info. Thank you!
Thank you Linda! The owl plates were part of a ‘Woodsy and Wise’ set of Vicki Sawyer animal plates purchased 3 years ago.
Mary, I look at all these gorgeous tables and my mind begins to race to this wonderful season awaiting us. I’m as eager as you are. I’m working on my own fall table for the hop next week. This post is inspiring and as me thinking of new ideas. You are the best!!!!
Mary, that is a lot of inspiration! There are all fabulous!
What a bounty of beautiful fall tablescapes! And the setting is always so fabulous out by the water. I haven’t been around this summer – too busy having fun, but hopefully fall will settle me down into more blogging. Lovely and elegant as always Mary.
