Falling into Fall



We are all ready for fall aren't we? Welcome to the Fall Tablescape Blog Hop sponsored by Chloe Crabtree @ Celebrate and Decorate. Hopefully, this week of fall tablescapes will jump start your creative juices for your fall decor. Join all the talented tablescapers listed at the bottom of this post for a week of fall tablescapes.

I've been wanting to use these hand woven baskets made by local artisans so a fall tablescape was a perfect time to use them. The detailing inside the baskets are so pretty as is the handle which you can't see on the basket with the flowers. 



Flowers are my passion so it was fun to challenge myself to find grocery store flowers  and it not look  like a florist arrangement. I bought three bundles of alstromeria, gerber daises and roses for $12 and added limelights and acuba from my garden. I had envisioned adding some fresh goldenrod also, but it is a little early for it in south Alabama and I couldn't find any. It is a delight to have fresh flowers in the house. They have held up in an oasis longer then I thought they would. 


I'm featuring some borrowed antique pieces that are lovely. The barley twist candlesticks, majolica pitchers, and copper tankards are from my friend, Sarah's antique business. She makes several trips yearly to England buying antiques. You can find Sarah at Scott's Antique market in Atlanta monthly. All of these items are for sale. 


Copper adds a texture of warmth for fall and pars well with the traditional burnished fall tones. I love the shape of this tankard. It is from England and dates in  the early 1800's. 


Can you visualize men gathered at pubs having a "pint"? Sarah said she has had monogrammed tankards before. In the olden days men would leave their mugs hanging on a peg at the pub.



There is also a "quart" size. This one is brass and copper.


I've always liked barley twist candlesticks and topped them with beeswax candles for added texture.

The burlap runner was bought a few years ago. I can't remember where I bought it but wish I had bought two. If anyone sees this anywhere please let me know.
Wouldn't it look great to have some horn ribbed flatware on this table! Just image some vintage horn ribbed cutlery on this table and it would be the table I pictured in my mind.


The napkins are from the 70's. Remember those colors? I also borrowed the straw chargers from my friend, Charlotte. Girls, I'm running out of room for dishes so when my friends offer their things for my tablescapes I'm delighted.

  1. Hi Bonnie, I love your 'borrowed' items for your fall table including that handsome copper tankard, barley twist candlesticks and gorgeous majolica pitchers! The one with the basket weave design makes me swoon! I haven't been to Scott's in years, I would love to go back but I'd need a U-Haul. :) Such a pretty flower arrangement in your basket using grocery store blooms mixed with your limelights and the acuba foliage is such a nice addition. It's always fun blog hopping with you. ♥

  2. Bonnie, when you have a friend that sells antiques and makes trips to England to buy, I would be borrowing. Your table is beautiful...the burlap runner and hand-crafted baskets are perfect for fall. Your grocery store blooms along with your own make for a beautiful arrangement! I have always loved barley twist candlesticks...the majolica is beautiful as well as the copper tankard! I need to make a trip to Scott's, but I am running out of room, also! You captured my favorite season on your table!

  7. I'm not at all ready for fall but I have to say your gorgeous table is putting me in the mood! Love the copper and isn't it wonderful what you can do with grocery store flowers? I try to do as you do -- I'm not sure my results are ever quite so good! The baskets are great.

  8. Never apologize for "borrowing" Bonnie...we all have storage issues! I adore your table, particularly your majolica. I have a few pieces and they are so easy to put with almost any tablescape. I love your colors and textures as they keep the eye trying to take it all in. I especially love your twisted barley candlesticks and baskets! Lovely tablescape.

  11. Bonnie, I love how you've set your table for fall, it is lovely. The flowers are such beautiful colors and those baskets are perfect for fall. I think the dark candlesticks really adds so much to the table. The burlap runner is gorgeous and if you do find them again let me know. Love those tankards, and I love how you included how they were used in the past. This is such great inspiration for me, I need to pull out the velvet pumpkins............

  13. Bonnie, your table is beautiful and the flowers are perfect on this table. I am so glad to meet another blogger from Alabama. I just found out the The Painted Apron is also from Alabama. We need to keep in touch!

  14. Hi, Bonnie! I love how the basket handle matches the barley twist candlesticks. That's such a nice repeat, and it caught my eye before you mentioned borrowing the candlesticks. I was already salivating! You are one blessed woman to have friends offering to loan you such lovely things! I haven't been to Scott's since I lived in ATL, but it sure does make a great excuse for a visit. Your table is gorgeous, and you've put me in the mood for fall decorating! (Shame on you...I'm trying to wait for Sept. 1st!) ;-)

  18. Bonnie, your napkins may be from the 70s, but you've certainly given them an updated look with the way you styled this gorgeous table. I really love the mix of the colors, the majolica (it's seasonless, isn't it?!) and your burlap runner. It's all so nicely put together. Smart girl to tap into your friend's stash!

  21. Oh Bonnie, your table is putting me in a Fall mood! I love the burlap runner, and those borrowed woven chargers. Your 70's napkins look perfect with your table. I do love those fabulous baskets and your flowers. Majolica seems to work year 'round, doesn't it? Great job, Bonnie!

  22. If you have a Michaels, Arts and Craft Store, you might check there for a burlap runner. I know they had them last year and regretted not purchasing one. I haven't looked this year but if I see one in my travels I will email. Your table is lovely even though I'm not ready for Fall. MM

  23. What a lovely fall tablescape! I love the burlap runner with the ruffle at the ends, it is a great base for your table. How fortunate you are to have a friend to borrow such wonderful treasured antiques from to create tablescapes with! Those candlesticks are amazing, and yes, the history of the tankards would be fascinating to ponder over. I really love the majolica dishes, I have been coveting those for a while now! Thank you so much for being a part of the blog hop!

You've put together such a lovely grouping of dishes and accessories - love the "borrowed" items and how much character they add to your table. Great job on the floral centerpiece - a terrific look for fall.
