Neutral Autumn Dining in Green

Before the blog world turns completely into Christmas and Winter
 wonderland I thought I'd better share my fall tablescape!

Our fall table in green this year is something quite different for me.
I have had it like this since early September.

It has been a nice transition from summer to fall
 while our temps were still high and leaves hadn't changed.

I may warm it up more now that true autumn weather has arrived.

The Pamela Gladding salad plates are a recent ebay find,
 and the "moody" grey-green napkins
were purchased a few months ago.


 The wicker napkin rings are also a new-to-us find
 from my favorite second-hand store after their fall season last year.

I forgot all about them stashed away in an autumn decor box.....
oh, the thrill of finding forgotten treasures! ♥

The extra tall wainscoting wall wood work
 and custom framed trio of feather prints in the background
 are a recent addition to our home that I haven't shared yet.

I intended on doing blog posts about each of our little home improvement changes
 we have had done in the last year, but good intentions weren't enough to make it happen.

The tall natural rattan vase was found by dear tea sister Mary D.

The larger mercury pumpkin was a recent birthday gift
from my dear tea sister Karen.

It lights up at night and is such a pretty way to add a bit
 of ambient lighting to that dark music area.


Our wrought iron table is fun to seasonally decorate
 and is useful as a make-shift coffee/tea/drinks station
 for dinner or tea parties.

It is shallow and adds interest to the back wall without interfering
with the path area getting to and from the dining table.

I used to keep an ornate iron and glass etagiere there,
 but it no longer worked once we added our new wood work.

Here is a different prospect from the foyer
of my 1959 vintage Baldwin  7 foot grand piano-
 and its wee "twin" that our 3-year-old grand-girl often plays.

Yes, those are York Peppermint Patties.

I was excited to find a perfect way to display my rusty metal leaf
my eldest daughter gave to me for my birthday a few years ago.

I love having a fall birthday!

It is my favorite time of year to decorate, and to add
 my beloved autumn decor birthday gifts
 makes it all that much more special!

The background of the mirror reflection captures a glimpse
of the top of our tall antique china cabinet with a large ceramic
pumpkin with metal leaves, and an European-inspired
colorful autumn silk floral arrangement 
 I designed many years ago. 

A pretty scented candle and another color coordinated 
silk floral arrangement
completes and complements the green theme this year.

I really liked taking these easy and moody darker pictures.

I have had the flu for over a week now, and couldn't find
 the strength or energy  to fuss with setting up 
heavy photo lights or doing much photo editing.

Hope you have enjoyed as much as I have had sharing.

As always, thank you for your visit.

Hugs and prayers.

  1. Michele: Your home is really lovely and love the table settings! Happy Fall and take care to feel better!

  2. HIIIIIIIIIII Michele!!!! So nice to see a post from you! Sorry to read you had the flu. Seems to be a lot of that going around. Love your autumn table setting. Your salad plates were a great find. Take care, sweet friend!!

  3. Love the pretty green tablesetting, so pretty

  4. Michele, what a gorgeous tablescape in the muted green hues. Your dining room is stunning! I was immediately drawn to the glimpse of the new woodwork, your console table and feather artwork. It's gorgeous, and your use of fall elements so tastefully done.
    Having the flu for a week must've been really scary, and so early in the season. I hope you're fully recovered by now. Your Bubblegum Princess is the perfect prescription - she's adorable.

  5. Happy Belated Birthday, Michele!

    Sorry that the flu bug bit...the only good thing about that is that it is going, going, gone.

    Your room and tablescape are beautiful. Green is so easy on the eyes...very calming. I grinned over the comment that the narrow table didn’t interfere with getting to the dining table. I thought you were going to say the piano. Love that piano. Do you play? You must to have such a prize in your home.

    Happy autumn! Hope to see you again before the holidays. 🧡

  6. Hi Michele,
    Your little Bubblegum princess is just too adorable. I am loving your new wainscoting with your baby grand it looks amazing in this room. Love your sweet table scape too and it is fun to find forgotten treasures! Glad you are feeling better. Have a wonderful new week ahead.

  7. Oh Michele, your table looks oh so pretty! I love those salad plates that add a pop of Fall color. What else I love are the tall topiaries on either side of you lovely centerpiece. You have such a knack for decorating. Your wainscoting looks so attractive, along with your pretty prints. Of course, your little Bubblegum princess is SO darling, and I know adds such joy to your life. I hope you'll feel better soon, my friend. xxoo

  8. Love your fall decorating. I just took my halloween things down and put back some of the fall things. I don't decorate for christmas til the day after thanksgiving. Love those leaf plates.

  10. Michel, your home looks absolutely lovely decorated for Autumn/Thanksgiving. I love the idea of setting a scape that lasts through fall into Thanksgiving. I did the same thing with my dining room. And, it still looks nice for the season Your wainscoting in the dining room is fabulous. I've wanted to do that for a long time but it always gets put off. The little princess is adorable. Happy November

  11. Hello Dearie! I hope you are better! I love your greens for fall. And I am crazy for leaf motifs. Such pretty dishes for your pretty table! So nice to have a word from you! (I thought about a microwave too, but you're right!, seemed too low to me.) Get well!

  12. What an elegant tablescape!Gorgeous decor!That adorable "pink" girl caught my eye!Greetings!

  13. Green is a great under-pinning for any time of the year, but I'm especially glad that you've used it in the fall. Green is the color of nature for fall 2019 -- only this week have we seen colors turning.

  14. LOVE your table. And I really do like the green. Those salad plates are too adorable Michelle. Girl...that beautiful piano is old as me! I bet your grandgirl enjoys it so much too. My oldest granddaughter has a piano and I love to hear her play and sing. Your bubblegum beauty is too stinking adorable. Oh my! What did we ever do before Grands! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  15. Michele, your home is so lovely. I love your Autumnal touches. Your high wainscotting is so handsome and looks beautiful in your home. I'm sorry you have been ill. Praying for better days ahead!

  16. Hi Michele! Oh your fall decor is So lovely and love the muted green. I also love your newest home improvement...the panels looks so nice and makes your beautiful piano really pop! No real fall decor for me this year...we are living in out RV now that we have moved to TN. We will be moving out of our son's yard hopefully very soon, down the mountain to our building site...hopefully will get the little RV more set up just in time for some Christmas decorating. Not much room for it but I hope to have a tiny table tree, some lights and decorate a mantle a bit. So good to see a post from you and I hope you feel better soon! Hugs!

  17. Hi Michelle! So nice to see a posting from you and a lovely posting at that!
    Your home is quite beautiful and very welcoming with all your talent in decorating.
    The wainscot near your piano is absolutely gorgeous makes your piano stand out even more so, just lovely.
    And look at that little one for your darling princess to play on!

    Thank you for sharing your beauty with us.

  18. Wow - beautiful! This is my first time here, and I'm so impressed with everything! Your table setting is lovely, and your home is gorgeous! I love your piano and baby piano - that's the sweetest thing! I could go on and on, but will save some praise for the next time. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog - I'm so glad I found yours! 💗

  19. Michelle, I'm still holding on to fall, so I'm happy you shared your fall table. Your home is lovely, and your fall tble speaks to me. Your little princess is adorable!

  20. What a beautiful tablescape and Fall decor!! Thanks so much for stopping by and for taking the time to comment!!

  21. Hi Michele
    Your grand piano looks so beautiful on the hardwood flooring. Do you play? I inherited my father’s grand piano although one of the keys is now sticking which makes it hard to play. I love all of your autumn decorations and the wee princess is so precious. Hope you are feeling better. Take care. Karen

  22. Michele, how lovely! Your home looks so welcoming. I especially like your neutral greens.


Thank you, friend, for taking the time to comment! I read each and every one of them. Your thoughts are appreciated!
