Sunflowers & Pumpkins

Hi Everyone!
I was riding around yesterday and coveting all the fall doors and thought I'd share of few with you. Maybe ideas for later or next year!

This is my neighbor's house.....not a front door but I love it! She changes the chair with the season.

 A simple but pretty front door.

This is the other part of the picture above.

This is my next door neighbor, Ruby's house!

I took this one because I loved all the flowers.

I don't decorate for Halloween but for Fall. I hope this got you in the mood to look at my pretty tablescape.

My inspiration for this week are the sunflower placemats I bought at Walmart, last week!
In my moment of weakness....... Be still my heart!

My chargers I used last Thursday....another weakness, that I LOVE!!!!!!
A side view of all the plates.

The white pleated plates I bought at Goodwill in Buffalo, NY. They are made by Living Quarters.
The pattern is Ridges. The green plates I bought at Homegoods in Houston. They are made by Artistic Accents. Made in Portugal.
Sunflowers make my heart sing! What about you?

I love white pumpkins! Have you noticed, I use alot of cake plates all over my house!

My Aunt Elaine painted the tray for me years ago. It is the only thing I own that have sunflowers on it.
I get to look at these happy souls every morning having coffee!
A close up of the tray.....
The napkins are from Walmart.....I put a green one inside for a two tone effect.

I love setting the table and being creative! I hope you enjoyed my little tour of fall doors and my table.
Come back and visit.
Be sure to visit all the other beautiful tablescapes over at Susan's at Between Naps on the Porch.

Blessings My Friend,

  1. Lovely setting--the placemats from Walmart are great!

  2. I think your table is absolutely inspired, and I love the way you use those cake plates. Your new placemats are so cute, and they are going to be fun year round.

    Loved touring the neighborhood, too!

    Happy Tablescape Thursday...

  3. I haven't seen those placemats, I am in the sunflower state, I am not sure I have more than a couple things with them on it. Your aunt did a wonderful job on that tray.
    Only one house in my neighborhood ever decorates for Halloween.

  4. I did so enjoy your tour of your neighborhood. Seeing pretty door decorations and gorgeous landscaping is a treat. With the climate in your city, it makes it easier to grow pretty plants.

  5. Look at those amazing homes in Texas. You guys do everything BIG don't ya! ;) The homes are pretty, but your table is nicer...

  6. Oh, sunflowers and pumpkins are some of my favorites! Love seeing them together. It is nice to see how you use the cake plates. I have just starting to buy a few. I need to stop but they are just so cute!

  7. Don't you love that people are decorating so much for Halloween? Your indoor decorations are super fun. Great use of cake plates! Now I have a reason to buy the next one I see. ~CJ

  8. Such a fun tour of Halloween houses! I'm going to have to do that ---- we have an amazing one in the neighborhood.

  9. Very pretty! Love those green plates!
    I enjoyed the tour of your neighborhood fall decor!


  10. Love the settings and all the Walmart goods! Sunflower place-mats are awesome!
    Enjoyed my fun tour of your neighborhood too! Thanks for visiting my home blog as well!!

  11. Hi lovely lady.
    You did a lovely tablescape setting. The placemats are so cute, I also love all your photos of your neighborhood!!! All of them did a great job.

  12. Your table is just gorgeous and I really like your neighbors doors!!

  13. Sunflowers are just plain happy, aren't they? What pretty decorations in your neighborhood! Your tablescape is so lovely, from the chargers to the double napkins!

  14. Love your header photo of your pool! Wow! The cute duck is funny too! I loved the fall tour! Such lovely homes and inspiration!! Thanks for visiting me earlier!

  15. Great entryway decor for the season! Some people really go all out!!! I'm the dud on the block who just puts out a fall wreath and calls it a day. :-) The placemat was a great inspiration. I'm a sucker for a sunflower, too! You did a really great job! I hope you have a nice Halloween!!!
