Dianne's Creative Table

I am inspired by light, all things natural, reusing previously loved items, and bargains!

The Falling Leaves

As I wrote the title for this post the melody of that song, that my Mother loved,  started running through my head.  
This year our Thanksgiving was very small.  We expected 6, but ended up with only 5.  I was happy to have a smaller group.  

I first saw this cloche at the Queen of Hearts in Buford, GA in early Oct, but I resisted buying it.  A return girl's shopping trip in Nov resulted in a purchase!  I really love the size.  

Oak leaves gathered from our tree and some hedge apples for simple centerpiece.
Pheasants from a consignment store in Basalt, Co. 

I loved these light when I found them, but didn't realize until I got them home that they have 8 different ways to display the lights.  Some are mind numbing, but most of them create a lovely focal point for the table.  I am now hot and heavy into Christmas, but wanted to post my fall table before it was too late. 


  1. It's gorgeous. Love the little white lights. Looking forward to your Christmas table in your lovely dining-room. Deb

  2. Gorgeous as always. Love the centerpiece of fall leaves with the hedge apples. That green really pops. I know I'm repeating myself, but I love your dining room and long dining table. It's the perfect setting for a dinner party.

  3. Really pretty. Now that song will be stuck in my head for a week!


  4. What a lovely table, Dianne. Everything blends together so well. Love, love, love your centerpiece. It truly anchors your table and your dishes, choice of linen colors and everything else creates an atmosphere of welcome and comfort. Just beautiful. Rosie @ The Magic Hutch
