~Delicious Autumn~

"Delicious autumn!  My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth
seeking the successive autumns."
-   George Eliot

We are home from the lake for a week or two. 

I’m working on getting the back porch ready for Fall. 

Most of the things I used, for this table, you’ve seen before. 

I am getting lots of good use from the woven Wal-mart placemats.

The green cloche/birdcage is from Schaefer House, Jefferson City MO, last Spring.  I found the little “milking stool” and birds at Michael’s, last month.  Other accessories and dishes, used in this setting, were found around the house.

Home Goods has lots of wonderful Fall accessories. 

I found the pumpkin plates at Marshall’s, Osage Beach MO.  If you have a base set of white dinnerware, it is easy to have a variety of table settings by adding colorful salad plates or other small dishes.

We continue having delicious Autumn weather.

Is that the bird cloche you posted the other day? Anywhoooo I love it! The pumpkin plates are wonderful and I love the little white bowls ??? they look like mini onion soup bowls. I saw similar ones in brown on clearance at JoAnns fabric store. You've just inspired me to run back and see if I can grab them. Thanks!

Pat, your fall posts are beautiful, the children are back in school, but I just don't have the heart to give up summer yet! But I always enjoy my visits here, so no complaints! Beautiful photos of a beautiful home, as always!

Lori Webster said...

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Pat, wonderful as always. Your settings never disappoint and they make me want to get busy with fall decor here. I love the milking stool in the birdcage.

Be a sweetie,

Pat, Another beautiful table. The pumpkin plates and the birdhouse with the stool inside is adorable. It's always so fun to see your gorgeous home.
Hugs, Sherry

You must have tons of storage space for all those pretty dishes!

Pat,
I absolutely love the mix of all the Fall colors in this post! ! !
I, also, use various seasonal salad / dessert plates. The handles on your white bowls really set them apart; such an elegant touch!Thank you for this all inspiring Autumn post!
Fondly,
Pat

Cindy said...

Everything is so pretty but my favorite is the wire bird cloche....Christine

FOR THE SAKE OF TIME said...

I saw those on Tuesday at Marshalls but they only had 3. I almost got the yellow ones but decided against it. Marshalls was not too busy on Tuesday but I am sure it had taken a "major hit" over the weekend. They had many new pictures and I found one for over the bar at our condo. I am finally on the down hill side of the decorating there. We just got home two hours ago and I am ready to go back. I need to be two people : O )
Have a great rest of the week.

Always so lovely and such a treat for the eyes, Pat. I love the wall color in this room! It's colorful, yet somehow manages to be a neutral, if that makes sense, and allows you to use so many other colors beautifully with it. I feel the same way about the aquas in my home.
One thing I especially love about this post (including the mini soup tureens!) is that you showed that people don't have to go out and buy a lot of new stuff but can use what they already have in creative ways. Beautifully done!

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

Hi Pat, thanks for swinging in today. Love, love, love the wired cloche dome.. how unique to use a crock for a wine cooler. Perfect!! May have to borrow that idea at some point.. lol.. Isn't the weather "great"???? Sure hope it holds, I heard they are calling for some nasty winds and rain to head our way... hugs ~lynne~

marty (A Stroll Thru Life) said...

Pat, such a lovely tablescape again. I love the dishes and the leaf plates are such a fun color. Your birdcage is just the perfect centerpiece with the tiny stool inside as a lift and the pumpkins. Love those small tureens too. So pretty. You always give me such great inspiration and ideas. Thanks. Hugs, Marty

Brenda Kula said...

The texture of those place mats is just such a rich contrast for everything you use, Pat. I've got to find some. I keep telling myself I also need a basic white set of dishes. Would work with everything.

I just love the centerpiece. It's so unique. Beautiful plates and setting.

Sailing Simply said...

Lots of lovely goodies here! Of course I'm sure you know I love the birdies in the cage! But I really also love those green goblets, cute pumpkin plates and sweet little tureens. This is such a wonderful autumn setting!

Glenda/MidSouth said...

So Pretty! Really like the wire cloche and green stemware. Makes me want to get some Fall decor out, but right now my dining table is still covered up in jewelry supplies, etc.
Still in a holding pattern with my daughter - hopefully soon. :D

Mary said...

Very lovely Pat - makes me think Autumn is on its way, thank goodness. I see the French Countryside peeking out - they are the best aren't they? Seems like they are not as available now though - at Macy's I only ever see Italian Countryside. Of course they are sturdy thank goodness and I haven't broken any yet!

Saphron said...

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog again, Pat. You made my day! Keep on posting these autumn-themed pictures because I am so ready for it to truly be fall. :)

Marla @ Always Nesting said...

Beautiful autumn table. Gorgeous!

Helen said...

I know what I need ~~~ twelve plain white dinner plates! Thanks for the tip ..... everything looks so lovely.

Debbie said...

I had to scroll back and forth several times to capture all of the details. I love the combination of dishes and especially like that little leaf one. And those green glasses are a beautiful color! Just lovely to look at!

I love that green plate and the soup tureen. I always wonder how much cabinet space you have to store all of these various place settings. W.C.C.

I think your design using the bird cage is so beautiful. That little milking stool looks darling in there. You are so talented to take various items and combine them so elegantly together. I am enjoying looking at your older posts for lots of ideas. I continue to be amazed by your many talents.

Hugs, Katherine S.

I must say the green caught my eye! Love the glasses! And I also have the little white soup dishes with the lion heads on the side. I use them all the time! Lovely table Pat!!

Linda (More Fun Less Laundry) said...

Hi Pat, your table is very inviting. I have those leaf dishes, but am looking for some pumpkin plates too. I love the blue walls in your dining room! I am about to repaint my foyer and living room in shades of blue. I'm so happy to be seeing blue everywhere again. Linda

Marlis said...

I love those tureens. Omg... and the plates and the cloche and the placemats.. It's all wonderful. You have a great eye.

Gardening in a Sandbox said...

I find such inspiration from your postings. I tried out your photo technigues last week and now you have answered another big question I had and that was how you were able to add a different font than was offered by blogger. Hurrah. I downloaded the Windows Life Writer and will give it a try. Thanks so much.

I could sit at this table, bathed by the gorgeous light filtering through your windows, all day long. Such a charming tablescape in a beautiful room. Thank you for sharing your charming design. Cherry Kay

Southern Lady said...

What beautiful accessories, Pat ... and you coordinated everything so perfectly, as usual. I love the contrast between the elegant emerald green goblets and the more rustic crockery and woven placemats ... only you could pull that off so beautifully.

I want to thank you for featuring my "Fall Decorating" post on your sidebar. What a compliment coming from you ... it truly brightened my day!

I can't wait to see your porch when you finish decorating it.

With best wishes to you and Jay for a happy Thursday ...

Love the fall - autumn tablescape. It is time for a change and you did yours so charmingly. I purchased the stools last year for the fall season and just pulled them out, too. Happy pumpkin season!
