~My Fall Coffee Table~

Hello guys, Today I'm joining Marty at "A Stroll Thru Life " for table top Tuesday...I have really missed doing this fun party each week...Thanks Marty... This one of my coffee tables in my Living Room...I wanted a fall look without going into the orange color...No matter how hard I try I just can't do orange in my house ha ha!! In fact I already tore apart my mantle I just did with orange ha ha!! Do you do that? put something together and live with it for a few days and just know it's not you ?



I started by using one of my Gold table runner's and just kept adding as much brown's as I could get away with...I love this sweet dish I found at Ross this year...Maybe by Halloween I will put some candy corn in it...or maybe mini Tootsie rolls at least their brown ha ha!!




My sweet little brown birds I got last year at Michael's...




Of course I had to add a cloche with a harp clock under it...Added a tassel to the top of it and sat it all on a glass cake stand...


OK I'm tired now...I'll just put my feet up and see if I like this new look...

Thanks for coming by...Now 2 weeks from today is my BIG second year of Blogging and I have something really GREAT for those that follow me...At least I think it's something that every woman needs in her life...And NO it's not a maid lol!!!


Until next time from my mountain to yours,

Hugs and smiles Glria

Oh, shucks a maid sounds real good. Love your fall coffee table vignette and girl you know I don't live with anything very long before I am changing it up again. Love that cloche over the clock.

Hi Gloria,
Your cloche is just stunning and I love your gold runner! I saw those little birdies in at Michaels just the other day; so cute! You have a beautiful display on your coffee table and thanks for sharing it with us. Have a beautiful week.

Blessings,
Sandi

Hi Gloria Sweetie...
Oh my what a beautiful post, and I am so loving this coffee table top. Love the cloche, and I have to tell you I bought the same Fall leaf with the sunflower and little bird perched on it. I have gotten so many comments. I keep mine by the front door on my table for the house keys. We can always grab them on the way out.

Again just a beautiful share today. Hey I love that polish girl, what color is it?

Many hugs and so much love, Sherry

Hi Gloria! Oh, I love your new fallen coffee table look! You have the most wonderful taste! The runner is beautiful and look at that clock under the cloche! Cute little birdies and cute little toesies! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Oh I love it and you can just move it all over to my house and it will be just perfect. Even though I am using a lot of orange, all your gorgeous browns will be perfect with it. Love that gold runner and the leaf dish is lovely. Of course the cloche and cake stand have me drooling all over this pretty table. Stunning. Thanks so much for linking to TTT. Hugs, Marty

I love to visit homes with interesting coffee table decorations like yours. So much fun to examine all the elements, as well as admire the overall effect!

Chari at Happy To Design said...

Hi Sis...

Girl, I can see that you have just been the busy little bee!!! You aren't resting...ARE YOU! Hehe! Oh well, you and I are both cut out of the same mold, Sis...and decorating and "piddling around the house" is probably the most restful thing that we could do!

Anyway, I just adore your new autumn vignette on the coffee table! It's autumn delicious!!! Love that beautiful table runner...oooh, so elegant! It's perfect with all the beautiful and elegant items on your table! Sis, are those pretty ornament thingys that you have...candles? I think I'm seeing a little wick sticking up out of them? Ohhh...they're gorgeous...I love them! Where did you find them? Love your new autumn leaf dish...of course, you knew I would...with that sweet little bird! Hehe I have my brown autumn birds out on my dining room buffet! Well Sis...your harp clock just looks fabulous under glass! The candleholders and pretty candles look fabulous with it!

Love that last photo! Sis, your living room is one of the prettiest rooms that I've ever seen! I love it!!! Hehe...I'm surprised that you didn't paint your toenails brown to coordinate with the browns in your pretty vignette! Hehe!

Love ya, Sis!
Chari

All of your decorations are so beautiful!!! The coffee table looks like a magazine photo shoot!!!

Your fall coffee table is beautiful, Gloria!

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

I think your table looks wonderful. You have all that red/rose color in your house...orange would be hard. We had cottage style furniture in our living room when we first moved in here...it had dark red cabbage roses on it and I found decorating so hard. Christmas was really awful...bright red was a nightmare. I bumped it to the basement and now have dark brown sofas...easier to work around!

Andrea at Opulent Cottage said...

So elegant! And I love that pretty pedicure! Have a wonderful week!
xo, Andrea

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Hi Gloria,
WOWSY! JUST GORGEOUS!
I love that drapey look with the brown birds and the beautiful cloche!
You rock at this, great job!
And I am trying not to kiss Addison's cheeks too much but it sure is hard not to.
Big Hugs,
Cindy

Ceekay- Thinkin of Home said...

Not a maid...but I could really use one of those!! Oh well, enjoy your tabletop...I know I did!!

sheila from life @ #17 said...

Hey back :) 'course, I love your table top...it kind of reminds me of Cinderella...the clock striking midnight...the crystal shoes...and we'll pretend the Imaginary Pumpkin is a white one so it works with your birds and orbs too :)

p.s. love the crows and the arrangement in your blog header...very very cool

Sharing Shadymont said...

So unique and lovely!

Debbie said...

Hi Gloria...pretty toes...I know that was not part of your lovely vignette. Really nicely done..pretty table runner, and all your touch of Fall really compliments one another. Did someone say "MAID"????

xinex said...

No orange? I actually love orange, lol. I like the browns and you sure pulled it off, very pretty, Gloria!...Christine

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

OMG! I NEED some red toenails..I LOVE the look!!!
And yes, I argue with Orange every Fall..but plunge ahead...but when you know it isn't right...
Listen...that coffee table is very Fallish. Very. cute as heck! Ok..so maybe cute isn't the word..exactly. Elegant would have worked...but with those red toe nails...I don't know....
Oh what the heck! :)
Hugs,
Mona

Sue said...

You did great sweet G! You don't need orange to bring in a Fall look, all your tabletop things look wonderfully Fallish! Especially the orange toenails! LOL. (they are orange right?)

Gloria (The Little Red House with the White Porch) said...

Hi - love all of your 'browns' -- how about some brown M&M's for that dish? or Junior Mints? And what are we getting for your anniversary? Something we all need? Hmmmm... Are you giving away a Pool Boy?
Best,
Gloria

Barb~Bella Vista said...

Hi Gloria, your coffee table looks lovely....very soothing and welcoming. Yes, I have torn many things apart. Ha.

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Gloria, your table top looks beautiful. I love that runner, and you have so many pretty treasures to put on it. Your feet with the pretty painted nails look pretty too! laurie

Pam said...

Very pretty table. I like those birds. The only time I ever use orange is during fall and then it has to be the correct color of orange. I tire of it easily and by Thanksgiving I am ready for it to go away.

SavannahGranny said...

Your "none orange" fall decor is beautiful. I especially love the clock. We don't need orange to welcome fall and you have just proved that. Go Girl!
Thanks foryou kind comments of encouragement. I look forward to our visits. Ginger

Amy Kinser said...

Very pretty. Love all of your touches.

Hi Sweetie!!

You have such a golden touch when it comes to arranging things!! Love the look! Have fun putterin" with your fall goodies!!!

hugs,Sherry

Sue said...

You don't want a maid?! I do- but I have issues with all of them- They just don't clean to my expectations. They either don't lift the cushions to vacuum, or they don't take all the "Stuff" off the tabletops to dust, or they want to mop instead of getting down on their knees to do the floors. I could go on... So it would be ok if you don't send me a coupon for a free day of cleaning from Merry Maids if I win! LOL
Seriously, your room looks lovely, Gloria. I love all the browns- my whole house seems to be that color. And I love your little clock under the cloche. Pretty runner, too. And the toes add just a spot of color.... tee hee

I think its a great idea to not fall into the tradition of always using certain colors for the seasons. I really like the pumpkin-y oranges, but if you don't, I like the browns and golds that you used. Great idea!

I stand in envy of your beautiful cloche!
