28th Table Top Tuesday - Fall Living Room


Welcome to the 28th Table Top Tuesday. With so many of us thinking and hoping for fall to get here in a hurry and all the very hot weather to be gone, I am sure there will be tons of inspiration with all of your new table tops. I can hardly wait.

I am so ready to bring in a little fall. Some small subtle changes have started in the living room.


A small ivy in an italian pottery pitcher and hurricane replace the vase of sunflowers. Everything else was there already.


I found a pair of these hurricanes at the GW. Love the large size. I filled the bottom with a few coffee beans, then just added some fall leaves around the candle. A little burlap ribbon tied around the base and it was done.


Nice change of pace. Remember hurricanes work for the Fall Cloche Party on Sept. 17th. Click the button on my sidebar for details.


On this side table I replaced all the white birds with a plant and 3 candlesticks. The orange candles add a little warmth to this corner.


A candle in a hurricane, stacked on a couple of books replaced a plate that was on a stand. That's all that was needed to change this table.


You don't have to do a lot to make your displays look different from one season to the next, or in my case every few weeks. I like to shuffle my things around for a different look. It keeps me interested. lol




Sorry the sun is such a glare, but at least it has cooled off just a little.


Thanks so much for stopping by, I always look forward to your visits.

Be sure to link up below. I look at everyone and I am always inspired.

  2. I love you fall changes with the candles, leaves and pops of orange. I am really into orange this year. I had problems getting pics this morning because of the glaring AZ sun in the windows too! But it is sort of looks like fall with the cloudy skies and slight breeze.

  7. Hello sweet friend...

    Beautiful...absolutely BEAUTIFUL, Marty!!! You are sooo right about how different a room can look by just changing out a few of the accessories! Of course, I first learned this from you, my friend! I love all of your autumn pretties...it IS beginning to look like autumn...even though it may not feel like it yet! Hehe! It's still very hot here in Colorado as well. I love your large hurricanes...you always do such pretty things with them! I love the simplicity of the autumn colored candle...sitting atop the coffee beans and fall leaves...and that pretty little burlap ribbon! I love, love, LOVE the burlap ribbon...such a simple thing and yet it just sings "Autumn"!!!

    Well sweet friend, thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home and a few of your seasonal changes...I loved it! I have just begun at my place. I changed out the white and green dishes in my china hutch to all my red dishes! Maybe I'll get photos for next week! Thank you for hosting Table Top Tuesday...I always have so much fun at this party!!!

    Love ya,

  14. Your new changes look lovely. Wow, you do like to change things often, don't you? :)) Everything you do turns out so pretty.

    As fall is my least favorite season, I seldom do much fall decorating. Now, winter is another story. I ADORE winter and all that goes with it. Can hardly wait for Christmas....:))

  47. Not only is everything autumnal and beautiful, I know that it smells heavenly with the coffee beans!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I really love your orange and green accents, Marty! That orange is going to just take center stage once Fall officially arrives! I was drooling over all the hurricanes and the different sizes at the PB Outlet when I went a couple of weeks ago. I wish I could have picked up several, but I know prices are probably better at GW.

  49. You just proved that you do not have to fill every surface with fall decor to make a beautiful room.Love the hurricanes.

  55. I never really changed out my things for each season. I just added a few things for each holiday. I would put a few things away to make room for Christmas decorations, but that was it. Then along comes blogging. I'm looking around at all my stuff and thinking maybe I'll tweek it a bit this year!

    You really show how much it changes a look to change just a few items.
