Day 5: Five Days of Fabulous Fall

We made it.

Day Five.

Five Days of Fabulous Fall.

Two Mantels.
A Buffet.
A Side Chest.
And a formal Dining Room Table.

Five Days.  Five Fall Projects.

Today… I am showing you my formal Dining Room Table.

Now you’re first thought when you hear me say “formal” Dining Room table may be crystal and china and lots of froo-froo.  
In year’s past, that is indeed how I have set our formal table. 

But this year, I wanted a look that was more natural… and as you have heard me say dozens of times…woodsy.”

 I am not saying that “Mr. Buck” above our fireplace does not warrant crystal and china and froofroo….

… but I felt he would be more comfortable around cabbages and mums and rhubarb and grapevine…

I did sneak in a little “glamour,” in the form of a cherished Pink and White Staffordshire Soup Tureen.

This beautiful piece has proven to be ever so versatile throughout the Seasons.

I also thought “Mr. Buck” would approve of some other “woodsy” (there’s that word again!) friends.

A pair of very friendly pheasants.

So while this vignette may be located in our formal Dining Room…

The feel is casual and comfortable.

A burlap runner, simple candles…and small pumpkins and gourds. 

And speaking of mini pumpkins…

(don’tcha just love how I work in my babies?)  😀

In about two short weeks, I will be making a few adjustments to the table to ready our home for our Thanksgiving feast.  

I have given it some thought in the past few days… why I love this time of year.

To me, this Season represents a more relaxed time when you can reflect upon your blessings in life and be thankful for them.  This is especially true after the tragedy of Hurricane Sandy.

No hustle of stressful gift buying and wrapping presents. No long lines at the mall.  No cards to write and mail and packages to send. 

Just a chance to enjoy Nature’s Beauty at its best.

Thank you for celebrating Fabulous Fall with me this past week. 

To recap, here are the projects from the past five days:

But, least you think I am done with Fall…
(bite your tongue!)  :)

Join me Monday for:

“Better Late Than Never”
Thanksgiving Inspirations.  

Join myself and three other Fabulous Bloggers as we co-host this great event.  Old posts, new posts, archived posts – they are all welcome.  The idea is to INSPIRE!

{part of the “Better Late Than Never” series}

Best part is you can post on one blog, and get lots of exposure on all four blogs.  

I am going to be featuring some great ideas with Pumpkin.  Nope, not the decorating kind. The eating kind.  :) 

Have a Fabulous Fall Weekend, 
My Bloggy Friends!
