Autumn Table and White Pumpkin Vignettes

As soon as the leaves start to change and the temperatures cool off, I remember how much I love fall!  Lately, I've been so motivated to decorate around the house.  This week, I worked on the kitchen...

Autumn Table Setting with Green and Tan NapkinsBasically, I just used items I had around the house.  I pulled out my fall Pottery Barn napkins and decided to design the table around them.

Fall Table Setting using neutrals and textures
I also used my Pottery Barn runner which is always great this time of year.  As you can see, I only had four of the green printed napkins so I used white ones on the end.  As I recall, I bought the green printed ones on clearance a few years ago and was only able to find four.

Autumn Table with textures and neutral colors
I kind of like the way they look with both sets of napkins.  I have had the chargers forever and the plates are Mikasa Italian Countryside.  I use them all the time and because they are white, they are so versatile.

Simple Fall Place Setting with White Napkins and Rattan Chargers
I am always drawn to a simple look.

Napkin Close Up - Autumn Table Setting
I've had the napkin rings forever, as well.  We purchased the new flatware last year from Crate and Barrel and it's called Caesna.

Fall Table with Candle and Hazelnuts for decor
I filled this hurricane, (also from Crate and Barrel many many, years ago), with hazelnuts which help highlight the browns from the napkins.

Autumn Table with White Pumpkins
And of course, my only recent purchase for this table - white pumpkins!  As usual, I have been buying these babies like crazy.  I can never get enough!

I used some of these pieces in a fall table setting a few years ago.  If you would like to see that table setting, which was done in the dining room, click here - Country Thanksgiving for Four

Fall Table Setting with White Kitchen view
I actually prefer doing table settings in the kitchen though.  We spend most of our time in here and it's always light and bright due to the southern exposure.

White Kitchen Decorated for Fall

Now I will take you around the kitchen to look at some of the white pumpkin/fall vignettes...

White Kitchen with Cherry Island and Rush Seat Stools

This is the view when you walk in from the main entrance.  As you can see, I finally bought counter stools.  It only took me a year!  You can read all about them here - New Counter Stools and Why I Chose Them.  Because of the rush seats on the counter stools, I decided to add the wheat bundle to the stove mantel and then continued with natural textures from there...

Some preserved boxwoods to add a splash of green and of course some white pumpkins to finish the simple mantel display!

But like I said, I can never get enough white pumpkins.  I continued to add them around the kitchen...

Wrought Iron Tiered Plate Stand with White Pumpkins and Pine Cones
A few pine cones helped add some contrast and texture to the pumpkins in my tiered plate stand.

White Pumpkin and Pine Cone on windowsill
I placed one on the windowsill along with a few more pine cones.

White Pumpkin and Wheat Stalk Vignette
A few more white pumpkins and more wheat bundles to add to the natural textures in the room.

Pumpkin Pear Vignette - fall decor in the kitchen
In this corner, we have a vignette with a ceramic pumpkin and one white pumpkin elevated in a small cloche.  I actually planned to add more pears to the mix but we kept eating them all.  Only this green one survived...because it's a candle!

White Pumpkin and Candle Vignette
And lastly, another small pumpkin mixed with a candle and pine cones.

And that wraps up the kitchen tour!  Just in case, you didn't get your white pumpkin fix, I also decorated my family room mantel with them as well! -  Fall Mantel with Apples and Pumpkins.

  3. I love your kitchen, mine is way too small to have such pretty vignettes on the counters. But I too like to do tablescapes on the every day table.
