A Little Warm and Coziness For All

A Little Warm and Coziness For All

Now that all of the ghosts and goblins have been put away, it is time now for family gatherings with the fall colors. Here in WV the trees are starting to take those orange, yellow, red and green colors. The nights have cooled down and the days are sunny and pleasant. Sitting under a warm, cozy blanket with a hot beverage in front of the fireplace puts me in a "nesting" mood. Don't you just enjoy those moments?

This weeks tablescape brings out all of those fall colors. I have even included some items that my husband loves about fall. Can you find them? You will see more of his favorite "items" closer to Thanksgiving!


The table covers consist of 5 yds of the burnt orange material. I didn't cut to fit because it is suppose to be used for the back of the chairs in the dining room. The runner is of 2 pieces of chocolate brown that I made for a wedding display.





Plates are as followed: White charger from T J Max......yellow dish was found at the craft store.
This cute little leaf plate has been hidden in my cupboards for many years.  Love the colors and not sure where I found this great little find.  I only have 2, so I hope to go on a scavenger hunt to find more.
 The napkins are layered with the print, which I just love the colors and an organza napkin. The silverware is from Oneida...Satin Sand Dune

This cute spreader was a great find at the craft store. On sale for $.50! Needless to say, I bought all that they had.
 A nice warm mug of Apple Cider with the cinnamon stick spells warm and cozy.  Mug is from my Princess House collection.
 I though I would throw a little of my husband in here.  The antlers is from his collection.  My leaf S & P shakers were bought when I bought those lovely leaf plates.  Acorns are faux and found at Khol's.
My centerpiece was made for a wedding display. I have to of them and use this centerpiece a lot in my dining room. The colors are what I usually work with and just works well in here. I have lots of TALL centerpieces that I have made and hate to tear them apart.......

 Mmmmm.....smell the apple pie freshly baked! Cute little candle I found at the Dollar Store.
My little leaf bowl that I believe was found at the Dollar Store. It is cradling a candle.....

The beaded spikes were purchased at the craft store for a little bit of nothing.  I had a fall wedding to do and bought lots to do the table with.  Lots of garland and picks........
 The smell of pumpkin, cloves, and spice reminds me of the upcoming holidays......cloves are in the glass hurricanes........
 These are recycled wine bottles that we had found at the Hot Air Balloon and Wine Festival in Virginia. Loved them...could have gotten more but thought I would save them for someone to buy.


 My pumpkin soup tureen was purchased many years ago and just great for this time of the year.



 Now we move to the warmth of the coziness........

 My son drew that picture I believe when he was 10. That is a picture of him beside his art.

 Plain white candles that are glitterized.....yes, I do have glitter EVERYWHERE!

 The other side of the fireplace with Harry Potter Book (my son loved the books. Did you notice the leopard print in the lampshades? A little warm, cozy and Wild when they are lit !

Thanks for stopping by and please, let me know what you think of my little warm and coziness spot! Enjoy your spot!

Your table is absolutely lovely! But what do you mean by "now that the ghosts and goblins have been put away . . . ?" I guess I'm a little behind . . .

Marian said...

Very warm and creative. The colors are the essence of Fall. That's a beautiful fireplace.

Beautiful, beautiful, bee-yoo-tee-ful table! I'm guessed that your husband is partial to the antlers. I like them, too! I don't like dodging deer all season (or when they eat my flowers in the summer!), but I do like the antlers! The room is just gorgeous, and I am so in love with your fireplace surround as well as the decor!

Your tablescape is so artsy -- I love it!

Dining Delight said...

Yes, I love fall and the "nesting" sense it brings! Your tablescape has captured that feeling totally! I really like the beautiful tall centerpiece (perfect for sight lines/conversation)
Does your hubby like hunting? Another fall activity. The leaf shaped plates are gorgeous - I bought one at Walmart to put in a stand but now wish I'd gotten more! Terrific mosaic candle holders too!

Oh, this is a wonderful tablescape. It has such amazing layers. Love the horns mixed in there. I am wild over antlers in a fall mix, and your tall topiary is just perfect. Wonderful leaf plates, too. The whole table pops! I love it! And your other decor echoes it perfectly.

Happy Tablescape Thursday...

XO,

Very pretty. There is just something that makes fall time so cozy and warm. Your decor is beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

Andrea (Softer Side of Me) said...

Dining Delights: Yes, my husband does hunt and I am not sure nor do I care to know if these antlers are something he found in the woods, from one of his pride and joys, or his decoy toys for rattling. I just needed them for my table.
Julie: I hope that this answers your question. Let me know if I can help you out! Thanks to all for the lovely comments!
