Fall Tabletop Inspiration

Some friends came over for dinner the other night and I had fun styling the table. I have been in the process of reorganizing my kitchen and have discovered all sorts of great seasonal decor. It turns out I have been collecting holiday tabletop items for years, but haven't been able to find most of them! Now that my kitchen is better organized, I can easily locate what I need.

I started with my new table runner from Italy

It had all the colors of fall

It was easy to add orange place mats and yellow napkins

I bought the amber colored votive holders for a party years ago. And the orange leaf candlesticks are from a trip to Paris to celebrate my sister's birthday.

 The pumpkin napkin rings were purchased at Williams-Sonoma on a fall visit to San Francisco several years ago

Red peonies and green hydrangeas pulled it all together

I loved setting the table with accessories collected over the years

The table was filled with memories

This new runner from Italy will definitely be making an appearance on Thanksgiving!
How do you like to set your Thanksgiving table?


  1. The whole table looks lovely, Sunday. I love the flowers, in particular. For me, after the food, the flowers are the most important thing!

  2. Your table setting looks beautiful. I always admire creative hostesses and their ability to elevate dining by decorating the table. I think you have inspired me to go out and look for some new linens.
    Enjoy your weekend!

  3. Sunday this looks beautiful! I cannot wait to hear about the delicious menu.

    Have a great weekend!

  4. Not much room for decor as the FOOD takes over!The husband is Italian.

  5. Your table looks absolutely beautiful. Love the runner you purchased in Italy. I use both my grandmother's wedding china and ours for Thanksgiving, both have a lot of pink in their patterns, so I use all the autumn colors, but add pinks and fuchsia in as well with the flowers. Yes, anxious to hear your menu as well.

  6. Sunday, your table is lovely. I love that I t is a collection of things you have collected through the years. Bonnie

  7. Beautiful, Sunday, and I like to set my Thanksgiving table in much the same way, bringing things out collected over the years. Everything looks so lovely on your table, and I love the runner from Italy. Thanks for the inspiration I needed as I get into the spirit of Thanksgiving.
