An Autumn Tablescape


While my sisters were visiting, I talked them in to creating a fun little Autumn vignette and tablescape with me out at my parents' house.


My sister, Devan, is a professional photographer {she is amazing- visit her here} and she let me play stylist while she took pictures and I can't wait to see them! These are just a few of the pictures that I took alongside her.

I love picking her brain to learn new tips and tricks!


I am a warm colors girl. I think that is why I love fall so much.

Warm colors are so comforting.

 

Recognize this?
I pulled my sign {tutorial here} out there- just for fun.


I included various gourds, strawberry corn, persimmons, and cranberries for added warmth and color.
Most of the furniture and antiques are my mom's. She is used to me doing crazy things {and stealing stuff}. Thanks mom!


And, of course pie! Marionberry and apple. Yum.



I think persimmons are really pretty. This is the first time I had ever tried one. They taste juicy and so sugary sweet. I think it makes a place setting special when there is a little something there for each person.


We started taking pictures at dusk and as the sun went down, the candles began to glow even more.


Climbing up this hill leads back to the house. 
We like to go sledding here when it snows!
This was a really fun place to grow up.


Nice wide open spaces.  



I helped to plant these poplar trees while I was in college about 12 years ago. 
It is so peaceful and lovely down here in this grove. I think it is between 1-2 acres of just trees. 




I am really excited for Thanksgiving now!


What is your favorite thing to include in an Autumn Tablescape?

Hi Kristen,
Everything looks so simple and organic....I loved the tall basket with the dried flowers. You are so lucky to know and have a photographer in your family...i wish I had one. I hope your week is full of blissful blessings!

Just delightful! You set the stage beautifully. I want a production team too!! What a wonderful collaboration. And there couldn't be a lovelier setting.The details of the napkins, berries, pies, lace, the long shots--just looking makes me happy.

So beautiful! Love the cranberries in the water - such a nice colorful touch. You have inspired me to try a persimmon, I've never had one either but they are pretty :)

You are so blessed to have lived there. Did you guys eat outside when the photo shoot was over? I love flowers, fresh or dired on my table.

Lovely pictures as ever Kristin. I love the tones. Pomegranites are pretty for decorating too this time of year. similar effect to the Persimmons ( i think we might call the Sharon fruit here too??)

I am looking forward to a nice message from the lady always.
Excitement of Christmas and New Year in Japan is very beautiful.
Seems not possibly have been appreciated by the Japanese people an overview of the festival of Halloween in the United States and Europe.
Destruction caused by this hurricane we are very worried.
I pray to God for the American people.
I'm sorry I was wrong spell.
