Frost on the Pumpkin…

I thoroughly enjoy the four different seasons in my corner of the world.  However, my absolute favorite season is Autumn.  I love the beauty of nature in fall, the gathering of the harvest and the anticipation of “battening down the hatches” for an Atlantic Canadian winter.  This tablescape celebrates my favorite season.


As you can see, I left my burlap runner on from my previous fall tablescape.  It just “says fall” so well, that I thought, why change it?


The crystal wine glasses were a gift.  They are Nova Scotian Crystal, made about 20 minutes from my home.  In the summer they open side doors at the factory and you can watch the craftsmen blow the glass into crystal pieces the old fashioned way.  Such talent!


I explained in my last tablescape that Lisa lived on the Canadian Prairies for several years.  One year when she arrived home for Christmas she had tucked in her suitcase that beautiful golden bunch of wheat…FOR ME!!!!  I just love it, and decorate with it each fall.






This is another of my homemade pedestal plates.  The plate was $3 on clearance at Home Sense, and the base is a glass candle holder from…you guessed it…Dollarama!!  I wrapped a piece of bittersweet garland into a wreath shape and set the base into it.  


I took apart another fall garland, and used a piece for some color on each of the plates.  


H A P P Y   O C T O B E R !

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.

Alycia Nichols - Good morning, Tanya! I’ll bet the air is cool and crisp up your way this morning! Perfect fall weather just like you like it! I’m with you on that…the change of seasons is something I embrace. Don’t mind if it’s cold, just don’t care for the ice storms and when snow is measured in feet instead of inches! :-) We certainly get our share of that here in the Midwest!!! I really like the shape of the glass candlesticks you got from the Dollarama. We don’t have that store here, but I sure wish we did. The shape of those would be perfect for SO many things!!! Very clever construction of the pedestal! I am so in love with those cups and saucers….wow! The texture is amazing, and the color is so deep. Love ’em! And it’s so sweet that your sister brought you back that wonderful little sheave of wheat. That says autumn in so many ways! Beautiful fall table!
