A fall plant that I love is Beautyberry. It’s purple berries are so pretty and in September their color starts to peak. In celebration of fall, I created a Fall Tablescape with Beautyberry. My table combines my love of traditional fall colors of orange, yellow, and brown with a pop of purple from Beautyberry.
I am joining Chloe of Celebrate and Decorate for her monthly tablescape blog hop. Each day this week a group of bloggers are sharing a late summer tablescape. You’ll find links to today’s participating bloggers and also links for the bloggers participating the rest of this week at the end of this post.
I’m looking forward to tablescape inspiration each day this week as I enjoy the ideas shared each day over my morning coffee.

Fall Tablescape with Beautyberry
I set this table in our breakfast room, a space that was added to our 1958 home in 2009. We have a formal dining room, but we prefer to entertain guests in our breakfast area since it is a larger space and it overlooks our backyard.
Setting the Table
I still love the Mikasa Garden Harvest dishes that I selected for my 1994 wedding registry. 25 years later, it’s been in constant use in my home. The Anchor Hocking amber glasses were an estate sale find that we’ve used daily for years.
The silverware was a Christmas gift to my great-great aunt from my great- great uncle and the Christmas tag in my great-great uncle’s handwriting is still in the box. This aunt raised my grandmother and was much loved by my dad and aunt.
My table has two hidden leaves and when used can seat ten comfortably. I prefer antique furniture, but went with new when we added this room to our home and needed a table and chair set. It’s all handmade and our bar stools used at our kitchen counter match. I have to agree with my husband that new furniture is more comfortable than antique.
I have two varieties of Beautyberry growing in my yard. I combined snippings of one variety with Virginia Sweetspire foliage also from my yard. The Sweetspire is starting to turn and in the next few weeks will really put on a show of color.
Colors of Fall
My hutch is decorated with vintage mixing bowls and my collection of yellow vintage pots. Sometimes I change the yellow pots over to my collection of green ones. It won’t be long before the shelves will display my vintage turkey platter and turkey collection.
I love setting a pretty table and got that love from both my mother and grandmother who both believed that the beauty of the table was as important as the food served when entertaining family or friends.
