The Dining Room Table Dressed For Fall And The Winners Of The iPhone Cases

I am officially ready for fall! Ok...except for the outside, I haven't started out there yet. I'm still waiting on it to cool off so I can plant some pansies and put out some mums. As for the inside I think I'm done. I usually add fall accents to the living room, dining room and kitchen. Fall just seems to fall right in with the colors of my house! ;) I just love the rich rusty reds, oranges and golds.
 
I used the cloche/birdcage in the spring and summer and thought I would keep it going through the fall. I added stacked pumpkins inside the cage and layed the flowers, berries, sticks and pumpkins all around the cage. It looks like it's put together, but everything is really just laying around the cage. No foam and hot glue needed! Now...just don't touch it! lol...
I really like the look of the layered beans, peas and corn I have in the kitchen and decided to do something similar in here. I added corn and split peas and instead of beans and added pinecones and candles. I also added pumpkins, flowers and votives around the base of the cloche and candle holders.
Looking towards the mantle...I found the table runner at T.J. Maxx last year and still love it.
Here is a closeup of the corn, peas and pinecone candle holder. I already had the clear containers from Christmas.


 Here is a closeup of the birdcage with the stacked pumpkins. I used the same sunflowers I used on the mantle so the dining room and living room have a nice flow.

 Here is the whole table...warm and inviting when you walk in the door.
 
 More fall to come...

Now for the winners of the iPhone cases....
There were 179 entries and three winners and they are Mandy Stucke, Dana Teare, and Mary Steinbeck.
 
 Congrats!!
I will be sending you an e-mail with  special instructions on how to order your cases. If you did not win be sure and are interested in the iPhone cases please visit Metal Photo Company to purchase one for yourself. They also make great gifts!

I added some new items to my Etsy store if you are interested. More to come...

Beautiful, Kristen! I love how you did your cloche/birdcage! I was too lazy and cheap to buy anything Fall-like to decorate mine. I just left my greenery.

I love that table runner. So pretty. I made an arrangement almost like that one in the center of your table. I love it! Mine was for spring though.

I have a table similar to yours and I have trouble keeping the gooves clean especially when we eat on it all the time. our 4 year old is a messy one!

Becca said...

Gorgeous, Kristen! You have such a gift for creating fabulous floral arrangments ... love the addition of the birdcage!

cajuncutie said...
