Celebrate fall’s arrival with tablescape inspiration from 15 table stylists and bloggers. You’ll find cozy and whimsical autumn tablesettings with glam pumpkins, woodland friends, black and white checks, a touch of blue and more.
In anticipation of fall’s arrival, I’m part of Fall Tablescape Blog Hop.
Many thanks to Rita of Panoply for organizing this hop!
You can find additional fall table inspiration from 14 table stylists at the bottom of this post.
After 11 years of blogging, it’s hard to come up with something new in the tablescape department
and not to repeat myself! You can find a round up of previous fall tables, HERE.
I was mentioning to a friend and fellow tablescaping enthusiast that I had a blog challenge
and was looking for some fall table inspiration.
She had seen these Pumpkin Truck Salad Plates along with the
White Pumpkin Patch Metal Truck at Hobby Lobby, which were 40% off.
I mentioned that I didn’t have a place to park another truck
so she suggested we divide the cost and share the fun!
She purchased the truck to use in her fall decor and I bought the plates.
I can ‘lease’ the truck from her and the plates are hers to borrow any time. :)
Fall is my favorite season and I’m ready to pick my own pumpkins!
It’s still way too hot for real pumpkins here in North Carolina, so
I’m enjoying a little whimsy and motoring to the pumpkin patch at the table!
Pumpkin and leaf stickers were left over from my DIY Cone-ucopias. . .
The front of the truck got a fall embellishment and decorative license plate,
to motor to the pumpkin patch!
Black and white checks join a colorful farmhouse plaid at the table. . .
With a black and white check runner with an applique of pumpkins.
No Sew Ribbon Acorns are scattered down the table. . .
These Easy No-Sew Ribbon Acorns come together in just minutes and are a
fun and whimsical way to add a touch of fall to your home.
Baking cups with a truck motif were harvested at T. J. Maxx. . .
They’re offering a medley of Mellowcreme pumpkins and candy corn at each placesetting.
Amber goblets are waiting to be filled with Apple Cider Sangria, an easy seasonal cocktail
using fresh apple cider to mix for a crowd, for tailgating or to celebrate fall. . .
And copper flatware provides a warm glow.

Mary, your trucking table is as adorable as one can get!!! I love the way you think of everything, right down to an adorned license plate!! Your mixture of fall plaids, buffalo check and all the varieties of pumpkins is fall at it’s best! It is such a pleasure to be back hopping with you again!!🧡🍂
I love how you used the black check with your fall table cloth and other decorations.
THAT IS…WELL, HAPPY TRAILS TO THE PUMPKIN PATCH!!! I ABSOLUTELY LUV THIS!!! KUDOS, KID!! franki
Mary, from the plates to the centerpiece, your whimsical tablescape is just adorable! I love how you used the buffalo check to complement the warm fall colors! It is a pleasure to join you! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction
Mary I hear ya on a place to park your “trucks”…as I prepared for my table, I discovered 7 trucks of all colors, sizes and shapes. Mercy!
But I obviously love setting tables or I wouldn’t be here…
Your table is adorable and always a pleasure to look at. Your attention to details stem from your retailing days and it showcases your talent. It is always a delight to see what new way you bring the ‘seasons’ to our attention! Have a great and Blessed day!
Mary, you have such a creative eye for design. I love the way you mixed the plaids – thanks for showing us how it’s done! What a fun tablescape!
Good Morning Mary… I am a collector of old toy trucks so this tablescape made me smile! And then to have them filled with those cute pumpkins! Oh my heart!
What a fabulous fall tablescape! Thanks for sharing all this fall fun! I’m off to gather all my fall decor. Happy Tuesday to you my friend!
Mary, your table is whimsical and fun. All of the truck details are carried out so perfectly. I understand not being able to park another truck, I can’t possibly stack any more plates. I haven’t seen the truck plates at my Hobby Lobby. How nice that you could lease the truck. The mix of plaids and checks is perfect. I am with you about the heat, it is way too hot for real pumpkins.
It is always a pleasure to spend time at one of your creative tables. Happy Autumn 🍂
Can’t imagine you being challenged for a tablescape!! You and your friend did it again!! Beautiful table and lots of great idea!! Thank you AGAIN,,
So cute Mary! I love it all, the black and white checks, the pumpkin appliques, the adorable pumpkin truck with it’s special license plate, it’s all wonderful fun! Aren’t you lucky to have a fellow tablescaping friend that you can share goodies with! Hobby Lobby is a dangerous place this fall, they have so many temptations! I bought some of the checked pumpkins too, hard to resist!
How fun to share with your friend, Mary! That’s helps with storage. Your table is such a fun one with the truck and pumpkin theme. I’d be a happy guest to enjoy the cider sangria snd some of those yummy candies. You always inspire with your creativity!
Mary, I was wondering where you were going to park another truck! What a great idea for friends to share props and plates! I just went through my party pantry and pulled out some plates that I am going to list on Poshmark. I know there are folks out there that would like to add them to their collections. Your plates coordinated with the adorable truck are just perfect. I love your sweet little DIY acorns and those fabric pumpkins are so sweet too! Alas, there are no real pumpkins here in Florida yet, either!
Love it and so sweet you can share with a friend. . . .it all works and is the right amount of plaid/checks and pumpkin.
What a smart, creative solution! The truck and dishes are oh, so cute! Love everything about this tablescape, another winner for sure! I am certain you will always be able to come up with a creative tablescape, it’s in your blood! Hehe. Still have my beach theme going, but will be on board for pumpkins in another week or so. ♥️🍊♥️🍊
I love this table! I have been thinking about making some small black and white checked pumpkins, and this settles it, I’ll be starting on them this evening. I also like the idea of sharing the truck and plates with your friend! Enjoy this sweet table while you wait for “real” fall weather to arrive. (Cooler mornings have surely been nice!)
Mary, Your fall truck table is absolutely magazine worthy! It’s so cute! I love the little truck with the embellishments. The table runner is gorgeous! The cupcake holders filled with candy is so clever. The napkin rings are pretty too. Your talents are amazing! Thank you for wonderful fall inspiration! Clara❤️
Good Morning! I absolutely love this tablescape. The centerpiece with the white harvest truck is perfect.
I love the idea of sharing seasonal decor items! Your table is just darling and that “leased” truck is so fun. What a great idea to layer your napkins too! You always add just the right touches to really bring your theme to life!
This brings back all the fun times I’ve had going to the huge pumpkin farm north of us, not far from the intricate corn maze that has a viewing platform in the middle so you can figure out where you are. Thanks for sharing your cozy table!
I love, love, love all your posts – old and new! It’s helpful to have references to the past ones as well as enjoying your new creations. Please never stop! Fall is my favorite time of year so I carefully study all your posts. Thank you!
I’ve also been blogging for 11 years and sometimes run out of ideas. Your table came together perfectly and the black and white checks with the farmhouse plaid is so unique. I now regret passing up the white truck at Hobby Lobby, it is a fun centerpiece. The layered napkins add depth and more texture to your table. Great styling Mary!
Such a fun and whimsical post. The truck is adorable, especially with the license plate and those cute little pumpkins. It is so nice to have a friend that shares your love of tablescaping. To be able to borrow from each is such a great idea. The truck cupcake cups are so cute with candy inside. Love the runner with the plaid. We are on the same wave length using black and white checks. The layered napkins are the perfect addition to coordinate. So many fun accessories to welcome Autumn. Always a pleasure to hop along with you.
Very cute, love that you’re in the truck leasing business now! I’ve got the trucks, I’ve got the truck dishes and glasses, what I don’t have is time to play so of course I enjoy your whimsy! I’m so far behind after 2 months dealing with my leg that I’m panicking this fall while its still 100 degrees this week I have to move a 1000 iris and plant my large flower beds before we lose our water in five weeks! Calgon take me away!.
So happy that you and your friend are “leasing” the table decor to each other so that we can benefit from your creative and fabulously fall table. Oh you know I love those ribbon acorns! Loving the coordination of that great runner with your checked linens and plates! Great party going on here!!!
Really cute table filled with lots of fun things to look at. The black and white check running throughout your theme was a great touch and grounded the table setting. You did a wonderful job bringing another beautiful work or table art to the party!
Mary, I so admire you for always coming up with a new take on your tables. Each one is full of fun and charm. I think it’s great that you and your friend are “leasing” from each other. I’ve often thought how fun it would be if all of us could offer a leading dish library, but shipping would take all the fun out of it. We could buy dishes for what packing and shipping would cost.
Your pumpkin patch theme is adorable. I’m ready for fall, and have been pleasantly surprised that the past few days have actually had a hint of changing temps. I suspect it’s a false sense of change, but welcome all the same. Happy Autumn!
As of Labor Day Weekend no pumpkin sightings here in Philly either Mary. Love your table, and yes, I’m ready for fall:@)
I love the truck loaded with pumpkins. How cute, Mary! Your table is adorable.
Your tablescapes are always THE BEST!!
Well, of course you bought the plates! Leasing the truck – that’s funny! What a great idea to jointly share the elements and swap. I need to do that with my sister! You think you may have run out of ideas over the course of eleven years but what I see is an endless imagination at work with new combinations that make me want to keep mixing and matching for many more tables to come. I love how you embellished the truck, and your checks with plaid make for a surprisingly clever combination! Those plates are super cute, and the matching cups from TJ’s are perfect. Woe are we with Pier 1 being gone – those napkins rings are sweet. Always a winner, Mary, and the whimsy brings a smile to my face even before one sip of apple cider sangria. Thanks for always delivering so many and such great ideas!
What a fun table setting, Mary! I love how you combined the colorful plaid tablecloth with the black and white buffalo check table runner. How nice that you don’t have to park the truck at your house, but can lease it when needed! It’s good to have friends that share your taste. The little acorns are darling and I can’t wait to check out your tutorial. As always, your attention to detail is impeccable! It was fun to hop with you again. Pinned!
Even though I’ve only been blogging for 4 years, I can identify with the challenge of coming up with something new in terms of styling and creating, while being limited on acquiring and storing more tableware. Love the solution you and your friend came up with! Another beautifully styled and photographed table, which I’m enjoying while on vacation in CA.
Absolutely loved this tablescape! Do the cupcake holders have a bottom to them?
Thanks Barbara, yes the baking cups have a bottom! :)
Mary, you did create an original tablescape. I love the mix of colors and your fun theme. We do have to dine, so let’s make our tables delight our guests.
So sweet, Mary. I always love your mixture of patterns in your tablescapes. The pumpkin truck is so adorably cute and makes me excited to visit a farm to gather up some pumpkins. It is so fun and festive. Happy Fall.
This is THE cutest table! I love it. Candy pumpkins in thie ute cups are a sweet touch.
I never get tired of black and white checks with pumpkin trucks. I have table runner similar to yours that I have been using for years! Love your tablescape, so much inspiration!
