Styling My Fall Table at Pottery Barn

I want to share my fun experience (and photos)  styling a fall table at our new Pottery Barn in Lexington, Ky. 

My daughter took the photos and video with my cell phone while I was busy trying this and that. 

I have to tell you that it was a thrill to be taken into the storeroom to select anything I wanted to use for my table...without looking at price tags. :-) 

Here is the cart with some of the items I used.

I was trying to create a rustic fall table that could be used for a fancy picnic out in a field. This is Kentucky afterall. 

The PB manager wanted a "fall" table...and I have to say that when I was done my table was the most colorful one in the store. ha! I bet that does not surprise you. :-)

The pumpkin patch had the most beautiful faux pumpkins from which I could choose. 

I also chose to use these brass hurricanes. Oh my, they are gorgeous. I am seriously thinking about putting one on my wish list. 

For my centerpiece I chose a large brass tray, and three brass hurricanes. The hurricane in the center is the larger size, and I flanked it with two small sized ones. 

The battery candles have the flicker flame that bobs about, making it look real. They are soooo pretty.

I then chose pretty fall silks to circle the larger hurricane. 

Since this was a display table, I lined the back side of the table with pumpkins, and put the place settings on the ends and front side of the table. 

Pottery Barn has the nicest faux acorns. I put some inside of each of the smaller hurricanes. 

This is the view from the back side of the table.

And this is the front side of the table. I chose rustic wood chargers for the blue and white dinnerware. I then layered a linen napkin and a fun pumpkin on top of each plate. 

Since the hurricanes set the tone for a golden brass look, I went with the gold flatware. I had fun consulting the girls working in the store...and the manage sealed the deal voting for the goldtone. 

An action shot of my trying to get the throws "just so" on the gorgeous rustic table.

The brass tray...

The stack... with lots of texture.

The place setting...

I love to use blue and white with orange, so I thought It would be fun to use for a fall table. 

Actually, I think blue and white china works with many seasonal colors. 

Another action shot! 
Styling tables is a workout. :-)

There were strong showroom lights over my my phone pics are flooded with light. I tried to edit the brightness down, but that did not work well.
