Since receiving my small velvet pumpkins I have gone gaga over them! They bring so much color and texture to the table.
I have a tablescape ready for you with these powerful little velvet pumpkins being corralled by my copper container. The Wedgwood luncheon plates in with plum colored centers, all have a different scene. Blush stemware compliments the colors. The roses add that pretty touch.
It all sits atop a pale amethyst throw and grape vintage books are under the large burgundy pumpkin.

You can always count on roses to bring pretty to your table or vignette regardless of the season. That includes using roses for Fall tables. They come in every color possible and bring such softness and beauty. A vintage salad plate with its display of Autumn leaves was the starting point of this vignette. I love the colors used in the plate with very little orange to be seen but more of the scarlet colors you do see in the foliage.
I let this one orange pumpkin have its moment of glory.
A vignette can be placed anywhere you want it and if you want it to really be noticed, placing it in an less typical spot, like in a chair - brings a lot more attention to it. This happened by chance as I recently have a real office! My daughter's old bedroom was painted a warm white color and I have moved blogville into it. It gets a lot of natural light and it's a different world with all that light. I am so excited about that. It's a real working space with a lot of my styling thingies on shelves so I can easily see them. The fabrics I use are hanging in the closet and I have a dining table set up in here now. This beats pulling everything out and dragging it out on the back porch for sure. It's much easier to keep organized too.
I do hate that I am away from the Sonny and Layla so much but they don't like coming in here a whole lot. So I have to go take breaks to make sure they remember me.
Roses of many colors pick up and compliment the leaves seen in the plate. The stemware echos those colors and dried roses soften the look.
I caught a peek or two of changing leaves close to our home.
Taking it from a vignette to a tablescape, the tablecloth is rich and deeply colored, bringing another layer of richness.

One easy way to have a Fall table is to use roses. Roses are always pretty and this table is wearing them in assorted colors. Deep reds, peach, pink and scarlet begins to describe all the colors seen in the roses. The faux Fall grasses are mixed in to be sure and make you aware of the season. I ran across this fabric recently and loved the softness of it. As you can see it has large roses in the print.
The white pitcher doesn't compete but lets everything else come forward and the flowers rule. Pink goblets and vintage dinner plates echo the colors of the roses.
Small pumpkins in many hues help further the Autumn look.

Adding special touches of Fall to your home doesn't have to mean going out and buying ten containers of mums or twenty pumpkins. Small special vignettes using mostly with what you have on hand can bring unexpected and pretty touches to your home. Petite pumpkins used three ways show just how easy it can be. You don't have to work hard, just smart! Just remember to use the colors you are drawn to year round in your vignettes and it will be much more appealing to you. In this vignette, with the exception of the three petite pumpkins, I had on hand the vintage books and a pretty piece of stemware. Using a blue willow plate as the base the blue bound vintage books keep the rich look from becoming too warm. My daughter's art is the blue backdrop.
This basket is packed to appear as if you are just about to go out the door for lunch on the lake on an Autumn day. There are a couple of purple transferware plates with purple goblets. The bed of dried roses keep things looking lush.
Adding small touches can be just as striking and doesn't require the room for more elaborate decorating for Fall.
If you like to go with a more spare lean look, this is the same goblets with a slightly smaller plate and purple/warm pink flowers. It pops against a white background.
Or if you like the look of the larger velvet pumpkins, pair a couple of larger pumpkins with dried hydrangeas and and a garden cherub. Then consider it done.

This is a Fall vignette that you can totally cook when you are through with the display. Rich vibrant colors paired with the copper and small pumpkins assure you it is for Fall. You have to get your green veggies to stay healthy so I thought if I display them I will for sure cook them afterwards! Vibrant red roses paired with brussel sprouts and artichokes are occupying my big copper tub. We actually had a few wisteria blooms on the bush, I don't remember that happening in mid-September ever. A couple of pumpkins appear to be floating nestled on top of the green glasses.
Vintage candlesticks add a flavor of history.
I cut a little of everything that was blooming in the yard this weekend, including zinnias, jute and wisteria.
I like the silvery look of the back of these leaves, I can't ever remember the name.
