Comforts of Fall Centerpiece

"Autumn On A Tray" Blog Tour

I'm so excited to be joining Katherine from Katherine's Corner and a wonderful group of top talented bloggers to share my "Comforts of Fall Centerpiece" as my contribution to Katherine's Autumn On a Tray Blog Tour! 

What an honor to be included in this group of ladies.  You all know I was made for this exact challenge, right!

 I absolutely LOVE Fall/Autumn! I have many of these elements in my sight every day because I also love the COLORS year-round. So receiving Katherine's sweet invite was quite exciting and, I felt, quite honestly, right up my alley. I started the endeavor with my simple white chalk painted and distressed tray, I have done many of these trays! This is one of four that I use around my house on a regular basis. 

This specific tray, if I'm being honest, sits in the center of my coffee table most every day. I dress it up or down, given the time of year and my ability to do so.  I'm actually very happy to have it styled for Fall now because it really does add so much to the room. It's important for us to make our homes a place of comfort, relaxation, peace, and celebration.

I knew, if I was going to do an Autumn/Fall tray, it would have to be what brings me comfort and a sense of peace and joy to my soul... That meant colors. Reds and shades of greens and burnt orange always feel so comforting to me. It also meant candles! I love to have candles around me for the whole of Fall and Winter. There is just something magical about candlelight, don't you think? I just love it.

I made my little grateful sign on a 3 x 5 canvas that I painted white then transferred the lettering on by tracing over my favorite font. 
Any display or vignette in my home for Fall, or even Christmas, always has to include my beautiful little red china Angel. I have many Angels in my home, but her red dress just seems so perfect for this wonderful time of year. 


Pumpkins are a given, I think, but what kind of pumpkins do I enjoy, really? White and light greens! Ha! There's the exception to my color rule.  This was very easy to accomplish, I had been gifted an old wreath from a dear friend, that knew I would probably take it apart and make something else out of it, which I did..hehe. The bright orange, plastic pumpkins were no match for my chalk paint and a little sage green tint. I really love how they turned out and it really only took a half-hour! I call that a Win-win!

My only real purchase for this year's Fall tray was my sweet new little white distressed lantern. I just love the way it looks and it burns tea or votive candles. I suppose you could put the little battery operated ones in as well, if you like those. So there you have it! Autumn/Fall on a Tray! 

Thanks for following the tour along over to see my humble offering!  Now, it’s time to keep it going! Please click over to Katherines Corner and see how she shares her autumn on a tray. When readers arrive at Katherine's blog she will be encouraging people to continue the tour by clicking over to Chloe's over Celebrate and Decorate and so on!

Here's a little sneak peek Katherine shared with me, can't wait to see the whole thing!

What fun! You all know how much I love this season, what a great way to celebrate it all the more! Thank you for coming and sharing some time with me today.

Blessings always,
Theresa

  1. Giving the same tray a fresh feel each season is such a great idea, Theresa! We have very little storage so I love that you use the same pieces throughout the year and give them new life. All the pops of color on your tray are fabulous! Hope your holiday season is a fun one, CoCo

  2. Love your little angel Theresa! She looks perfect there. Standing behind the grateful sign, its as if she placed it there herself to remind us what this season is really about. Beautiful tray and I thank you for the inspiration!

  4. I need to utilize my decorations - and that includes my trays each season. Having the same tray out all year is a great way to do this. Your fall tray is beautiful and that little angel reminds me to stop and enjoy the season.

  6. This is really a lovely tray, and I love that you frequently have one - or several - in your home. I also love that the tray features a transformation from one thing to another, a metaphor for the autumn season. Have a wonderful November!

  7. Hi Theresa. Your tray is beautiful. I was inspired that you used items on it to bring you comfort and a sense of peace. Both things we all need :).

  8. Your tray would look perfect in my living room, Theresa! I love the white and green pumpkins, as well. And the wreath is a perfect finishing touch to your styling. So nice to meet you in the blog hop!

  9. Your tray looks great. I love the floral arrangement. I use the same transfer technique that you used on your sign when I want to create a tutorial for my readers that don't have a Cricut. It's such a great idea! I think my readers would get some great inspiration from your tray. I'd love for you to come by and share on my link parties, Happiness is Homemade (open now) and Traffic Jam Weekend (opens Thursdays at 5pm CST). Hope to see you there!
