Thank you so much for all the sweet comments on my dog poop mishap.

I got so many comments and questions about the table from the post so I wanted to share some of my other favorite fall tables. Just between us? I think that fall is my Rhett Butler.

I can’t help it.

I have a little Scarlett in me.

Remember Scarlett?

Remember how she flirted with the Tarleton boys and flitted her fan and sashayed around the dance floor with her 18″ waist and her crinolines and arched eyebrows.

Remember how she pined after Ashley and followed him around and flirted shamelessly with him in front of Melanie after she wrapped herself in those curtains and willingly stole Suellen’s fiancée Frank and became a hard-hearted business mogul.


Bless her heart.

There’s just something about fall that makes a heart beat faster.

Today I’m decorating all the tables with all the fall ideas.

Here are creative fall centerpiece ideas from all the tables I’ve ever danced with.

    I love spring - new beginnings, brand new shades of green, the way the light slants. I love fall too, it is beautiful and the colors are magic but...it also means winter is coming. I live in Ontario. Believe me when I say I DO NOT look forward to winter!

    All of these are just beautiful. I love both of those with the magnolia leaves and fruits. They remind me of Williamsburg. Also enticed by the first one. May I come over for just a bit of that lovely bread and some berries? P.S. I've lost 12 pounds thanks to your inspiration and I'm not finished yet! Thank you!

    Your tables are all so beautiful! My favorite season is Spring! I am not a fan of cold weather, but fall is in second place. Those wood vases that look like a hollowed log are so pretty. Of course, the Magnolia leaves are just beautiful!

    Your mentioning Scarlett sashaying around in the drapes makes me think of the Carol Burnett skit. No matter how often I see it I roar. Great table ideas! Thanks so much.

    Well, since you asked...I flirt with spring, make out with summer, flirt with autumn, but pretty much give winter the cold shoulder--no pun intended. Say, I've asked you this before, but I can't recall if you ever answered: where did you get those awesome drapes? I just love the smocking at the top of them!
