Hello friends.

I hope you enjoy looking over some of these pretty Fall tables today.

Just gazing over these tables makes me happy.

I love to collect pictures of beautiful tables so that I can go back and appreciate all those little details that someone lovingly created.

Honestly, I think creating fabulous tablescapes is a form of artistry, but look closely, because you can easily find ideas here for your own table.

thanks for joining me on Day 3,

happy Friday…








  1. Oh I love those amber coloured glasses. I just bought similar ones in blue and clear that I am looking forward to using on our table. Thanksgiving is about a week away for us here in Canada so I am already thinking about tablescapes for that big get together. This certainly gives me some ideas to possibly run with.
    Cheers to day 3!!!

  2. They are stunning! Thanks so much for sharing.


  3. Leslie,
    I love all of the images but the second one is so clever. With Poe and other mysteries and the bump-ridden pumpkin variety, so cool. Thanks for this, I might be copying that table for an upcoming dinner.
    Enjoy your weekend and stay cool (if possible). :-)

  4. Leslie, I'm late arriving for your 31 days, but will quickly catch up. '-) What a terrific idea!
    I agree, setting a beautiful table is an art form. These are stunning examples. I'm filling away the ideas. Thanks!

  5. My dear … it is just so lovely 'seeing you' everyday! You inspired me to do a gratitude post today! I realize I had lost my zest for blogging by over thinking everything! You have revived my blogging mojo!

    Love these images! I am absolutely going to working some figs into my tablesscapes … that is if they are still in season!

    Thank you for gathering sic h beautiful images to share! I love your aesthetic!


  6. I'm going to be a Pinning maniac! I love all of these beautiful tables! This is a great monthly thing you are doing...I've come across two other blogs. Why don't I ever get included in the fun? Ha! Like on the school playground, right? Seriously, I could never post every day, I would never eat or sleep!

  7. Where do you get the little cups for the mini pumpkin mum flowerpots?

  8. Oh what beautiful inspiration! It really makes me want to throw a party. I usually lean a little more towards the rustic side, but the book themed table setting is really calling my name. I can just imagine good food, great wine and a lively discussion of fabulous read!

  9. apples and leaves centerpiece! twine covered jars! just a few of my favorite things here. gorgeous inspiration to give us all a nudge. those details make guests feel so special and will stick in the memory for years to come. happy weekend, leslie.

  10. I love the one with the book pages as table mats. It looks like the little notebook is placed as a small gift. what a great idea, definitely going to do this for my holiday table. Have a great weekend.

  11. Hi! Really liking the last picture with pretty amber glasses.
    Thankyou for your lovely words about my beautiful daughter too! Xx

  12. It would be so wonderful to dine outdoors at this time of year. Alas, the weather has turned and we will be eating our (Canadian) Thanksgiving dinner inside next week. Great inspiration!!

  13. Now I really want to go home and get out my pumpkin pot and bowls!!! BEAUTIFUL.
