34th Table Top Tuesday

Welcome to the 34th Table Top Tuesday.  Wow, you guys have all been so busy doing your fall decorating, and last week you just blew me away with your gorgeous creations.  There was so much eye candy and inspiration.  I just wanted to start all over again.

First I so want to thank everyone who commented and took the Helping Hand Challenge from my previous post.  There are so many hurting and in need right now, any kindness or help you can show someone will make a world of difference to them.  God Bless.

So with my wonderful new urn I just had to start playing.  The dining table became my first makeover. I love all the autumn colors, especially all of the rusts, oranges and peach tones.  I've changed the dining table centerpiece to be mostly in those shades, a monochromatic color scheme that works for me and my room.


I used some of the things from the original vignette.  I added the dark rusty orange table runner for a little more formal look than I previously had.

I love this old box filled with fruit. It has such wonderful carving and detail.

I propped the lid up on a plate stand in the back.  Love the pretty handle on the top.

An Antique gold candlestick, some fall glittered leaves and a tassel for a little bling.

I really love the color and the design of the urn.  I've arranged a very simple monochromatic floral arrangement in it.

Magnolias, roses, feathers and berries.

A more formal arrangement than I originially had, and so fun for a change.




Just a reminder to be sure and link up to Heart Of The Home @ Note Songs hosted by the wonderful Sheila on Wednesday.  It's a party all about our kitchens.  Come back to see the transformation of my bland builder basic kitchen to one that I think is warm and inviting.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I always look forward to your visits and hope you come back soon.

  14. Love that chest full of fruit! That's my favorite part, but of course I think it all looks warm and inviting. One that that you do that I really like is the way you smoosh up your runners. That always looks so pretty to me. I have decided to become a runner smoosher, too.

  34. HI Marty! Your dining room table top is perfect for a still picture painting. The magnolia is so pretty and the whole thing is something that would really look so good in an oil painting.....Christine

  35. Your new urn is so lovely and the floral arrangement just adds to it! Great idea to prop up the lid of that fabulous box so it could be seen too. I also like how you "arranged" the runner on your table.
    A wonderful fall vignette!

  38. Marty, I love the additional of the green berries and the leaves to the urn with the pumpkin in it. What a great way to set off the subtle colors of the pumpkin. Your table looks beautiful and I feel like such a slack for not having a table ready this week.

    Thanks for sharing your table and for hosting all the other beautiful tables for Tabletop Tuesday.

  42. Hi Marty...

    My friend, I'm loving your new urn!!! You know, I looked at that very same urn at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago..but it was a smaller version. I almost bought it and then decided on another one. I got mine on sale as well! Sure can't beat the price! After seeing your beautiful urn filled with that gorgeous floral arrangement...I wished that I would have picked it up! Boohoo! Hehe! I like it in the bigger size (like yours)! Well Girlfriend, this new autumn vigette on your dining room table is simply gorgeous! It looks sooo rich and elegant...and definitely has that "old world" ambiance! I love how you used that beautifully carved wooden chest filled with fruit...that's sooo pretty! Ohhh...and your table runner is fabulous! Love that pretty bulb fringe on the ends!

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful new vignette with us today...and for hosting TTT! I really enjoyed your note today, sweet friend! You are always sooo good to get around to everyone and leaving such kind words! You are the best hostess, Marty!!! We all love you...here in Blogland!!! You make our world a sweeter place!!!

    Love ya,
    Chari @Happy To Design
