Tablescape Thursday - Fall, Fall, Fall!

It's Tablescape Thursday sponsored by Susan at BETWEEN NAPS ON THE PORCH!


I finally have my house all falled up! Since it is Tablescape Thursday, I will start with the Dining Room and those not interested won't have to follow the rest of the tour!

If you saw my post last week, you will recognize the china (Spode Woodland Turkey), but this year I am using a gold tablecloth (After Christmas clearance at Target), the paper runner with the Chinese lantern design, and burnt orange napkins(clearance at Tuesday Morning) with red napkin rings. (I know that red and orange are supposed to clash, but they look good together as fall leaves and in my turkeys, so why not?) My goblets were from Ross Simons years ago and the sterling was my grandmother's wedding silver, Betsy Patterson Engraved. The copper chargers are new and from Target.


Same turkey as a centerpiece.


Here is my Dining Room mantle. The silk Chinese lantern stems were from Michael's. As you can see I have quite a turkey collection. The copper pumpkins are new from Target.






Now on with the tour - Here is the Foyer

Now the Parlor mantle


And you thought I had a lot of turkeys!!!

The the table in the parlor bay window


Now on to the Billiards Room


On the mantle is a white pumpkin with a Harvest Moon face. I got the idea from Country Living magazine.



We have a lot of pheasants on the bar in the Billiards Room and my stained glass turkey is one of my very favorites.


In our Sunroom, we have a tea set with an Indian corn teapot and a pumpkin painting by my younger daughter.



Last on the tour is my husband's study. As you may remember, he is a reenactor, so there is a military history theme to his study.


Ignore the dust on the Library Ladder - it's not good to overclean antiques. Ha Ha!!!!


Well that's what I have pictures of - believe it or not I have more decorations! And when October gets here the Halloween has to be added!!!!

Happy Tablescape Thursday to all! :D Jewel

Wow! I want to come to your house! Everything is stunning -- I love turkeys too --a friend and I used to see who could find the holiday turkey paper towels first (silly I know) - but now neither one of us can find them anymore. Each room looks fantastic.

Oh, I'm in Fall Heaven looking at your gorgeous home and all your pretty Fallen touches! Your table looks wonderful and I love that turkey in your centerpiece. Your home is so pretty and you have so many Fallen things! Now in your billiards room I'm noticing that picture of the fireplace of Lee and Jackson and those two caps! Mr. Precious love Civil War things and I had to show him this. He drooled a bit and said WOW!
Thanks for sharing all your gorgeous things.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

No, really -- amazing decor in an amazing house. Your house is just -- oh, wow. All those fireplaces! All those gorgeous rooms! All that stunningness!!! (If that is not a word, it should be.)

Fabulous. And I LOVE your turkeys. Well, actually -- I love it all!

Oh my.....what a BEAUTIFUL home you have, Jewel & what wonders you have done with your autumn decorations! Each photo was better than the last.
I adore your epergne! Magnificent, as are all your furnishings. I feel like I've stepped back in time.

Thank you for the lovely tour!

I don't know where to start--I loved having the tour at your house--it is truly lovely. I love the table in the foyer and really love your dining room mantel--I'll have to go back and look at all the gorgeous details again. Thanks for sharing this!

Bill said...

Hi Jewel,
So many beautiful things in SO many beautiful rooms! You've definitely created a warmly welcoming Autumnal atmosphere in your lovely home. The billiards room may be my favorite. That piece you're using as a bar is very special!

Bye for now,

Miss Janice said...

Oh my goodness, your fall decorations are just beautiful. I saw your epergne and I instantly thought...why don't I have one? It is stunning in the foyer area! Your home should be on a "Tour of Homes" for Autumn. Absolutely beautiful!

I am catching up on some blog reading. All I can say is FABULOUS!!! Oh I love seeing your historic home, I just drool. And you have it decorated for Fall so well. Love it all!
That Victorian Epergne on the front hall table, WOW!
I wish I lived closer for a personal tour!!!

Okay, I'm sorry if my comment appears twice, but it didn't seem to work the first time. Your home and your fall decor are gorgeous. You have such a knack for lovely vignettes and arrangements. I love that epergne and the way you have it decorated for fall. laurie
