Fall Tabletop Decorating Ideas!

Can you feel the change of season in the air? 
Fall is almost upon us...but is it actually Fall or is it Autumn? 
Do you ever use the two words interchangeably? 
 I never gave it much thought until today. 
I guess it's just one of those things that make you go hmmm... 

Well , whether you call it Fall, Autumn (or both)! 
I think we can all agree that it's a great time of year! 

Of course it's also a great time to decorate too!


I made this arrangement with some pretty flowers
from the "garden department" at the Dollar Tree! 

What?  You didn't know they had one!! ;)

Photo edited with a little watercolor magic! 
This wicker rocker and table are one of my latest T/S finds! 
I was so excited to find them!  
Now I can rock away while I'm enjoying the wonderful Fall weather.

**ADDED NOTE** 
The rocker set was already painted red when I bought it...
Not sure if it will stay that color. Would love your input!!
This I did with some dried Fall leaves, a cute bucket,
some pinecones from the backyard with some potpourri tossed in and... 
Voila!  A cute little Fall display for practically nothing!
I whipped up this little pillow from my fabric stash!
For this display I added more dried Fall leaves to this wire basket, a bit more potpourri, a heavenly smelling candle from Ross,
and a lil ceramic punkin on the side. 
Easy peazy!!


I'm joining Marty at "A Stroll Through Life" for my first

It's been beautiful weather hasn't it? I love, love, love the red wicker. The warm colors of fall are my favorites. The pillow is so cute and the table is wonderful, such nice lines to it. I noticed the fabric on the arm next to it. I've got a couple of yards of it I've been holding on to trying to decide how to use it.
Hugs,
Dawn

I never go to the dollar tree but looks like I am going to have to change my ways. Love your arrangment...those berries are gorgeous.

You made some great finds...the rocker and that little table are wonderful! I have been wanting to decorate for Fall....I use Autumn too...but have been wondering if it was too early....I guess not! You inspired me to get to it!

Your fall decor is so cute...but I am drooling over that wicker rocker and the table. Did you paint it red? It is SO perfect for this time of year and your pretty pillow looks great with it. I love your take on the bucket with all the goodies coming out of it, sort of like a cornicopia! Great idea!!

Looking good!!! And you make the Dollar Tree flowers look fabulous. And the chair set looks pretty fab in red too.

Everything looks wonderful! Red is my favorite color so I am a bit partial and would vote to leave the wicker as is ;0)

You did a great job!

Sherri, I love everything you have done! Oh my goodness, that pillow is perfect for Fall! I love the wicker just as it is. I love white as you know, but this is too special to paint. Can't you just see this with the green of Summer, and it is perfect for Fall. I would love to find a red set for a part of my garden. It is beautiful!
hugs to you dear friend...

Sherri,
It’s hard to believe autumn is here already. The past few months have been a blur and summer flew by so quickly. I hope I'm forgiven for being such a blog slug. I love the fact you found these seasonal flowers at the dollar store! What a great bargain and your arrangement looks beautiful in your urn! I noticed your kitchen on your sidebar so I’m going to investigate. It looks like you removed the upper door and perhaps a new countertop?
Hugs, Cathy

P.S. I vote for the red! Love it!

Hi Girlfriend...

Ohhh...so many autumn pretties! Hehe...I guess that I say "autumn" more than I do "fall"! Love your new autumn floral arrangement and your autumn potporri vignette! Wow...what a great treasure find! I love your red wicker rocking chair and table!!! Ohhh...I would keep it red...but you know how I like my red! Hehe! The little pillow that you made for it is perfect...such pretty fabric! Well sweet friend, I do believe that autumn HAS arrived at your beautiful home!!! Thank you for sharing it with us!!!

Warmest autumn wishes,
