Fall Dining Room

Mr. B loves our dining room table as 
much as I do but,
as much as I like to fill it with dishes etc.,
he likes it best when 
the decor is kept simple.

So, I decided to just decorate the table
with a simple fall centerpiece for him
until I go crazy again and
set it for Canadian Thanksgiving next week
and then Halloween.
 I used a simple off white runner 
from Ikea.
The two green candle goblets came 
from Burlington Coat Factory.
Don't forget, they sell
more than clothing!
They also have awesome home decor!
For the center I took a 
trifle bowl that was a gift
from Ms K and randomly hot glued
some faux leaves along the outside and wrapped
it up with some twine.
I then filled it with 
little faux pumkins, gourds and pinecones 
from my Fall stash bin.
An orange candle sits in the center.
Two smaller red votive candles 
sit on each side.
I decorated the buffet with my 
favorite tiered tray from Ikea.
 The bottom tier has Fall sunflowers,
pinecones and leaves.
The middle is filled with mini pumpkins
from Walmart.
And the top is full of faux acorns, also from Walmart.
A couple of ceramic pumpkins 
surround one of the plants I
repotted from an arrangement
we received when daddy passed away in February.
A fun little crow is caged up
in a tall cloche.
He adds just the right touch of whimsy to the buffet.
On the opposite end of the buffet sits
a thrifted pheasant, another re-potted plant
and a mercury glass hour glass
I found on sale at, of all places,
Lamps Plus! 
I never knew they had decor 
as well as lighting!
I had to run in to get a projector bulb for work
and I could have spent all day there!
I will be going back soon!
 Max let me dress up the little table
that he has a bed under for when 
we have storms or he just needs some alone time.

I filled a thrifted wine crate with
all kinds of faux flowers,
pumpkins and acorns.
It is Mr. B's most favorite of all
the fall decor I have done this year.
My inspiration was from 
Carlene's decorated fall suitcase that she 
shared at the party a few weeks ago.
 I placed some faux leaves and a leaf I cut
from sheet music into a distressed frame
and placed it in front of the box
 A covered acorn and pumpkin bowl
sit on each side.
 A pair of my favorite candle sticks
complete the vignette.
I love to decorate for the seasons
but, mostly I love
to decorate in a way that
Mr. B finds pleasing too!
I wonder what he'll think when
I get the Halloween bin out?
