A Quick Copy ~ Fall Table

I found this picture on the Pottery Barn website and after taking a really good look at it, realized this centerpiece would be so easy to recreate.


I already had two of these open-ended hurricanes.  I also had some Fall filler.  I put my hurricane on a small dish {one of those little cheese ones that come with a gift basket} in a Fall color, because I have to remove mine from the table or move it around quite a bit.  I added my filler trying to recreate it similar to the PB picture.  You can see there are gourds, pumpkins and leaves. 


Inexpensive and easy!  You could probably just use your "extra" or left over decor to fill these.  I used the leaves I still had left over from the dollar store hurricane project I did here.  I already had the filler.  Mine didn't cost me anything to put together because I had it all on hand, but you can get the leaf bundles from the dollar store and probably the filler, too.  I think I got my filler from Michael's last year.

This would work well on a tabletop vignette, dining table, shelf, or a countertop. 



Yellow leaf dish came in a Fall themed basket I won from a raffle {along with a reddish one}; the dishes are from Kmart's Country Living collection; the charger is from Pier 1; placemats from Pier 1; napkins made by moi; glassware from Kohls.

Leaf bowl also came in raffle basket; candles are from Kohls; faux Mum bouquet from raffle basket; leaves on table from Dollar Tree; and the candleholders are glass pieces found at Goodwill that I glued together.

Don't forget to enter my Birthday Giveaway!  It ends at midnight on October 31st!

Very pretty Kathy! You did a wonderful job recreating that centerpiece. I love your dishes from Kmart. Country Living at Kmart, huh? These mags are really supplying us with some beautiful collections aren't they? Love your goblets too! Beautiful table!

Scrap for Joy said...

Hi Kathy~
Because of your inspiration, I assembled one of the $ store hurricaines. Love the way it came out and I'll be posting it on my blog at some point. I used a modern candle holder from Ikea ($.50 a piece!!)for the bottom of mine. Love the way it came out! Keep working your magic...I love your ideas!

Hi Kathy! Ooo, I love how your tablescape turned out! I want those goblets, and those plates, and the bowls . . . I love everything on your table. As soon as Halloween's over, my table's going from scary to autumnal elegant just like yours! LOL

Oh, and I've been on the computer so little lately, I totally missed your b'day giveaway! I'll have to go jump on that. My Son's GF shares your b'day ;o)

Tammy said...

So simple, yet so beautiful! Great idea. I've been admiring those Country Living dishes for over a year. Trying to refrain from buying since we will probably be packing up and moving again next year. Such a hassle to pack up dishes. But your pictures made me want them all over again! Lovely tablescape!

I love looking through Pottery Barn catalogs. They are like a magazine and full of inspiration.

That is so pretty! I had not seen it, so glad you shared it...I too have a few of the hurricane globes in the attic, might just be putting them back into action:)

Miss Char said...

Yup, I love the Country Living line at KMart too. We only have one left in our city but its not very far from my home so I do stop by from time to time. Your hurricanes filled with fall are just beautiful, thanks so much for sharing.

Taking inspiration from PB, you have really made your table magazine worthy too! I really don't think of using huricanes, but will now.
Great tip to put a dish under the filler.

You just made me remember the pair of tall hurricanes that I have stored in the top of a closet. I think that they'd look great flanking the fireplace mantle, too. Thank you for sharing this neat idea! Cherry Kay

Alycia Nichols said...

I saw that same Pottery Barn cover and thought how pretty it was. Great recreation job!

Carolyn @ My Backyard Eden said...

So pretty Kathy! I love this time of year. Your table looks so fall festive.

Where did you find your large hurricane? I've been looking for a couple.

Thanks for sharing at My Backyard Eden. Have a great day!
