FABBY: Fall Buffet

 Here is the wooden bowl with the pumpkin, some fruit, indian corn and faux leaves and flowers.
 I love this big wooden bowl my hubby found in the open folklor market, several years ago.
 I could add some ducks next time, I don't like cluttered to much. The French mirror is an antique, it was my Mil's.
 I shlould've put my ducks too, I don't like clutter that much, so that's what it was!
 My mother made two crochet runners, many years ago and I love this tobacco color they have; she made me, one for the buffet and for the long, formal table...I'm using the smaller one here.

 The flowers and leaves are faux...everything else is real fruit and veggies.

 I love this alabaster round table my hubby had it made, around 18 yrs. ago.  The four chairs are vintage Dutch.
 The closed door next the pewter candle holder, with fall leaves around it.... ; leads to the kitchen.
 A glimpse at the entrance of the kitchen.
 I love the colors of the indian corn, some are even purple!
 The apholstery on the Dutch vintage chairs is French velvet... the burned orange color it's perfect for fall right now!
 I love the back and the lion feet of these Dutch chairs;  I don't like the legs of the table much, though.    Bellow you can see the entire informal dining area.
      Some of you have asked me about the arrangement on my buffet, that was in the background of my last tablescape post.....so I decided to show you how I have the buffet now!   This arrangement on the wooden bowl  I used on my first Autumn Tablescape this year and I want to keep it on my buffet, where  the alabaster round table is, a not formal dining area.   I did some small changes to it,  in order to have an autumn color atmosphere to this area of the house., my very fav season!
Always very grateful for all your wonderful visits from you my dear friends, I appreciate your comments very much and I also love and enjoy visiting as many of you as I can, my darlings friends!        I will see you next Monday, as we're going to visit our daughter Alexandra at the capital, as her birthday is Sept. 16th., I will be posting her new dining room, can't wait to see her new things in her beautiful apartment!
I will be linking to the following terrific parties,  and thanks to the lovely ladies that host them, which enables me to  go running faster to visit your incredible and fascinating  posts I always enjoy inmensely!!                 Love always,   FABBY

As always your posts puts me in a good beautiful mood. I love this setting and time of the year, I needs this today thank you.

Beautiful Fabby! I love your center piece. I have yet to start my fall decorating, but I am getting some great inspiration. I usually start Labor Day weekend, but this year I have been a little slow getting things out. I know part of it is that I am trying to decide what direction I want to take this year.

Thanks for sharing.

Hi Fabby,
You keep presenting us with FABulous pictures of your beautiful home and artistic arrangements.
Here in Portugal September is still very hot, we aren't "tuned" to Fall, yet.
But it will come, by the end of the month or early October and that is one of my favourite times of the year...
Thanks for sharing
Hugs

Love to you,
