Autumn Table Centerpiece

*
*
Hello my friends...I hope you're having a fabulous day!
*
Autumn has made its entrance at my place! I have been busy, busy with my seasonal decorating! Out with the light colors of summer and in with the warm, rich colors of autumn! I think that I have most of my decorating finished...of course, I am always doing a little "tweaking" here and there! Hehe! Now all I need to do is get photos of everything...I'm crossing my fingers for some nice sunny days. So stay tuned...there is more to come!
*
I thought I would share my new autumn table centerpiece with you today. Hope you enjoy!
*
Autumn in a French Country Dining Room
*
*
My french country dining room is decorated in shades of red, gold, and olive green so basically it is already dressed and ready for autumn. Sure makes decorating for this season a breeze!
*
~~A New Autumn Centerpiece for the Table~~
*

*
I found the three tiered pedestal cake plates on sale at Hobby Lobby last year. I have been really anxious to do a table centerpiece with them. They measure 13", 10", 8" wide...and are 13" tall when stacked on top of one another. They make a nice sized centerpiece for the dining table. Adding the tall pillar candle to the top plate gives this centerpiece an overall measurement of 20 inches in height.
*
~~Autumn Pretties~~
*

Ohhh...I had fun decorating this!
*
Bottom plate: I used an autumn berry garland done with gold, orange, red, and olive green colored berries, four autumn floral picks with dark red flowers, cattails, etc., a few woody pieces from an autumn potpourri mix, and two vintage ceramic yellow birds.
*
Middle plate: Autumn pears.
*
Top plate: A six inch yellow-gold pillar candle, autumn potpourri mix, and four copper colored maple leaf napkin rings.
*
It was easy-peasy!!! Hehe!
*

*
~~A New Autumn Table Runner~~
*
This new autumn table runner was handcrafted by Mary Steininger of Diningout...Embroidered Home Decor...Etsy Shop. It really is gorgeous...I love the deep, rich gold color! It has beautiful embroidered white, twig looking vines on each end of the runner. Ooops...I didn't get a good photo of the embroidery. I also have six matching dinner napkins...sooo pretty and sooo perfect for the autumn season!
*
~~Roseville Pottery Candleholders~~
*
I decided to use my Roseville pottery candleholders. This pattern is called Autumn Clematis.
*

*
And Voila...a new autumn centerpiece for my dining room table!
I hope you enjoyed!

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
*
I am joining these two lovely parties today....

*
*
Thank you, Marty and Karin...for hosting these lovely parties for us!
*
Well my friends, I'm so glad that you came by today! I would love for you to leave me a note to let me know that you were here...so that I might visit back with you!
*
*Have a wonderful and blessed day, sweet friends!

Hi Chari,
Your dining room is lovely! I really like the center piece that you have placed on the table there. Very pretty, are those three cake plates by any chance? What a great idea! I love the Autumn colors, too. I will post about some of my Autumn decorating tonight.
Hugs, Cindy

Turned out great Chari! I love your centerpiece, very fall like!

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

It's stunning Chari!
Oh your good girl! I love all the layering and the pears and how artfully you have arranged it!
And the gold runner looks just perfect!
This is going to be so fun seeing all your new Autumn decor!

I really love the pears in the arrangement! And the tiers allow you to do so much more! Lovely! Happy Fall to you! The colors of Autumn are what I love best about the season! ♥

Chari, this is so pretty. I love the pods and the pretty florals with the fruit. Gorgeous the way it is tiered too. Perfect. Thanks so much for linking to TTT. Hugs, Marty

Kim @ Starshine Chic said...

Another fabulous centerpiece. I just love it!! And I love the runner too. I still haven't done any fall decorating. However, I have already decorated my mantel for Halloween. But I was just trying things out. I may actually try & do a little fall decorating tonight so that I have something to blog about. I have been sooooo lazy this summer and now my bad habit is continuing into fall I'm afraid. At least it gives me more time to check out what everyone else is doing. And I love, love, love what you have done. Take care & wish me luck on getting at least one small vignette put together tonight.

Someday I'm going to paint my dining room the same delish color. Every time I see it I'm blown away by it's beauty. What a great choice. It seems to work soooo well with every season. Your fall yummies are sooo pretty. Still haven't started that here, but I'd better get with it. You bloggie girlies are soooo speedy.

Huggies!

Hi Chari! Your dining room is perfect! Of course it is! I love your candlesticks! I hope you are doing well! We are starting to get a break in the heat and humidity down here in the south. I started putting out my fall stuff yesterday. Of course it would help if I would finish putting up Easter and the rest of Christmas that never got put up and is still lingering in my dining room! OMG! Did I just admit that?! Now you know why I haven't been blogging lately! I'm in that state where I feel like I've fallen and I can't get up! Well, girl I can't wait to see the rest of your decor! God Bless! Lauralu :)

Liz said...

What a pretty centerpiece. I love how you stood the pears up in the middle!

Lovely!
