Fall is my favorite season and I’m trying to savor every minute of pumpkin season
before it’s time to trade the pumpkins in for jingle bells!
I gathered some mini pumpkins to fill a dough bowl for an easy fall centerpiece
for a table on the porch. Dried hydrangeas, crimson maple leaves
and Nandina berries add a pop of color to join pumpkins.
Harvest Blessing salad plates were picked from a favorite pumpkin patch, Pier 1, several years ago.
Raise your hand if you’re like me and miss shopping at Pier 1.
Felt pumpkin napkin rings with beaded leaf accents marry a pair of napkins,
a large plaid with a fringed herringbone.
A pumpkin harvest tablecloth provides more pumpkins for the table.
Bone-handled flatware adds some warm texture to pair
with tree slice chargers and wood dough bowl . . .
While amber stemware provides a golden autumn glow with curved bell-shaped goblets.
My Finger Knit Loop Yarn Blanket warms up the bench on the porch and
provides a soft and cozy spot to sit and read and enjoy the fall weather.
You can find the directions to make one, HERE, no knitting skills or needles required!
I refreshed the dough bowl with oak and maple leaves,
‘Blackie’ sweet potato vine leaves from a planter, and more hydrangeas,
cut before they were frost-nipped last week.

Simply stunning! Love all the colors put together. I just bought the same napkin ring holders this year at Home Goods and combined them into a black and orange themed table.
🖐🏻🖐🏻🖐🏻🖐🏻!! Yes, I too miss shopping at Pier 1! Love your pumpkin table decor and I will put mine out when HALLOWEEN is over…it’s such a fun time going from summer to fall to Halloween then back to fall/thanksgiving and then onto then best decor which is Christmas!! Sure keeps body busy! 🍁🍂🌾🎃
🙋♀️⬅️That’s me raising my hand! Yes, I miss Pier 1.
What a great table and porch scene, Mary. This has been a fabulous fall, such great color and for such a good, long time. I love how you plucked from your landscape to enhance the table and porch. We had the cold temps last week, and while my sisters had frostbite on plants, the river insulated ours, so everything’s sticky perky, just a little dried out from the warm temps! I was watering yesterday!
I have been following your posts for over a year now and am inspired by your creativity and photography. Your latest post shows some displays of Nandina berries. I only recently learned that these berries are highly toxic to birds. They are attracted to the red color and after consuming them it kills them. Wanted you to know this so that you can take action. Keep inspiring me!
Beautiful Mary! I love your fall table and the porch. I do miss Pier 1 as they just aren’t the same store online. Your blanket turned out so pretty. I’m keeping my fingers crossed in hopes we have a few more weeks of fall weather ad I’m really enjoying it. The napkin rings are really cute! Happy Monday! Clara❤️
Such a pretty, evocative table, Mary. The dough bowls are both lovely but I especially like the one with the pops of blue hydrangea. Love the tablecloth and pumpkin plates. Yes, I sure do miss Pier 1!
LOVE this! I’m so jealous you have the French countryside glasses in all the colors – they’re gorgeous! Love the pillows too. It’s all so pretty!
Hi Mary ~ oh yes, I miss shopping and browsing through Pier One! I drive by the one that was nearby my house that is just an empty space now and it makes me so sad. Thanks for the delicious and delightful recipes for the season. Hugs, Dorinda
Your dough bowl arrangement is so pretty Mary, both on the table and refreshed with the blues and colored leaves in your cozy spot…I have always wanted a dough bowl, such endless possibilities for centerpieces and vignettes! Your table overflows with all things pumpkins which makes this pumpkin lover smile :) and your blanket is so inviting, what a wonderful spot to curl up and read! Have a great week~
Raising my 🙋🏼♀️ I miss Pier 1. I love the dough bowl arrangement and your perfect fall table. We had heavy frost two morning last week and it zapped my zinnias and cosmos. It has warmed back up and we have potential bad storms for tomorrow. Wishing you a beautiful week, Mary!
Love that doughbowl with all the varied amazing hydrangea colors. such a pretty fall table, Mary!
Love your pumpkins in your dough bowl and table Mary! I miss Pier1 too! Happy Monday! 🧡
Pumpkin table perfection!
Your table is absolutely beautiful! I especially love the rosy hues that you pulled into the setting. Not to mention the dough bowl which is a perfect way to show everything off!
Thank you Mary for sharing your beautiful tablescape. The salad plates are lovely as is the table cloth.
Happy Fall and Happy Halloween

Pretty pretty pumpkin tablescape! Love the view in the background too!!
I still do a double-take in disbelief every time I drive by our empty Pier 1 store, disappointed I cannot drop in and enjoy all the table displays. The good news is that we have this blog to help keep us inspired and trying new things such as your dough bowl display. I love the combination of the earthiness of the wooden vessel with mini pumpkins combined with the elegance of the amber colored stemware. If only fall could last a bit longer!
Beautiful post Mary and the fall colors you chose are perfection for the season. The dough bowl looks fabulous, especially with the blue hydrangea and the table is gorgeous. Your finger knit throw is so pretty and looks so warm and inviting. Yes, Pier 1 – I am frantically waving my raised hand lol!
Your dough bowl on your table and your porch are filled with Fall’s bounty. The pumpkin harvest tablecloth is so pretty with it’s soft, warm colors. I miss Pier 1, too. I always found great things there. Now I think I need a dough bowl 😊.
It looks so inviting, I love all your details! I couldn’t find baby boo pumpkins this year and mini orange pumpkins were $5 each and I didn’t want to go broke filling my dough bowl so I’m lacking any fresh pumpkins this year! But, I vowed to grow my own next year… Love your cozy spot, my two seating areas are under construction right now, I’m eager to decorate them fall but not sure if it will be for Christmas yet 🙃
Gorgeous photos, Mary! I would like to add, as another reader has pointed out, that not only are Nandina berries very poisonous to birds, they are also poisonous to DOGS, cats, horses, and other kinds of grazing animals. The ASPCA used to have a warning on their website about it. We raise beef cattle, so we have to keep anything like that out of our yard and pastures. They are beautiful, though.
Hand raised to say I miss shopping at Pier 1, too!!
Really artful arrangements and table decor, and your photos capture it all so beautifully. Thank you for the lovely break to my day.
Mary. Every time I see your blog, I wish I was your next door neighbor. Your decor is always so inviting. Tfs cheers
Your table is gorgeous. I do enjoy seeing your beautiful pumpkin displays and fall decor. :D The porch is so inviting!
Love your Blacket that you made it is pretty
Loving all the fall color in your dough bowl. I have dough bowls filled with my needlepoint pumpkins. The blanket is lovely, Mary. You can do anything.
