Fall Tablescape and Mantlescape 2011

I have never been one who like to be alone.  It has been a challenge for me to sit at home for a few hours on a Friday night with Rusty coaches his team.  In fact, I ended up signing up to sell tickets for the 1st half of his games to occupy my time.  I never want to eat alone.  I will wait until Rusty gets home to eat with him.  But one day last week, I got a wild hair and went to a local pumpkin patch with an empty truck and two $20s....all my myself.  I spent about 1 hour and bought a wagon full of fall. 
After a few hours at home, I came up with this dining room tablescape and mantlescape.  Enjoy!
Notice I just used a box of Uncle Ben's rice to fill the vases with my left over stems from Waters Mill.  I also played around with stacking and propping the pumpkins all different ways.

I am also planning on taking a large mirror from my dad's shop, doing a little Vintage Revival's treatment and trading out the clock for the mirror.  Stop by in a week or see and see my updates.

Like the clock?  Check out my tutorial for it here.

How often do you change out your tablescapes, mantlescapes or shelves?  I mean - are they ever really "done"?  Once we get them the way we like them, don't we all just start of different ways to do the next one?

  1. I am so jealous I LOVE the pumpkins you picked up, the stems are beautiful I am a all over the stems that are long and curled they are so beautiful... and the kitchen table set up with the crows that you did is wonderful, It so unique, most people just use flowers and pumpkins, nice change up. I rotate decor all the time, I get board really fast, heck I would rotate each weeks if I had room to store stuff.... the space thing is a real issue I live in San Diego and rent/space is very pricey!

  13. I'm really adoring all the white pumpkins mixed in that I see lately. Sounds odd, but I never thought of white pumpkins being so festive. I wish they were available year-round, since they go with every season! Lovely simple and rural styled dining table and mantel, thanks for sharing! :) ~Mary
