Welcome to the Blog today, Friends. I’m excited to be joining some very creative and talented ladies in a Welcome Autumn on a Tray Blog Hop. Katherine of Katherines Corner is our host and you are invited to visit each Blogger for lots and lots of ideas for Fall Decor on a tray. Tray vignettes are great because you can pick-up the tray and move it to any part of your home where you might need a little color. You will find the links to all the Bloggers listed at the end of the post. If you’re coming from Jenny at Not Entirely Average, https://notentirelyaverage.com didn’t she do a fabulous job?

Welcome autumn blog tour

As you can probably tell I really enjoy using color in my decor. T his particular room is filled with greens and roses and browns with pops of yellow. I decided to put together a tray that would be super easy and would blend in with the colors already in the room.

I started with a silver tray and left it a bit tarnished for that subtle golden touch to the silver. I wanted to keep the feel from being too formal so added a pottery dish and a pottery vase to add some earthiness to the setting. The greens in the two pieces blended well together but weren’t too similar.

I found these really eye-catching squash in the shape of stars when shopping for produce. They have great color and texture as well as being a good size. I added a pumpkin to the group for additional color and texture. You can see how easy this is…one rectangular pottery dish and three members of the squash family in different colors. I set the pottery dish diagonally on the silver tray.

The vase (which is really a pitcher) is quite stunning. I don’t remember exactly where I found it but I’ve had it for a few years. I love the way the vines warp the base and travel to the top of the pitcher in a raised pattern. I used red and yellow common Fall flowers for the vase and added those colors to the Fall blend already on the tray. The tall vase and the flowers carry your eye upwards to the rest of the room.

Flanking the arrangement on either side are heavy silver candlesticks holding soft green candles ready to be lit when evening falls and a glass of red wine is in hand. Just a few items set the mood for a lovely addition to the room.

The yellow squash and the yellow mums pick-up the yellow in the loveseat directly behind the vignette. The star-shaped squash mimics the star-shaped flowers in the loveseat pulling the look together. The tray sits on a live-edged coffee table made by my talented Hubby.

This simple arrangement took only a few moments to put together and you can move it to a different location with ease. Hope this gives you some ideas for your home.

  1. Beautiful Lynne! I love the layered look of your two trays and the star shaped squash look amazing there. Together with the flowers and the candlesticks, it all meshes perfectly with the pretty setting of your room. So great touring with you today!

  2. I love this so much! Those squash pieces are so amazing. Now I am going to be on the look out in the produce section! The two green pieces you used are perfect for the whole tray arrangement and that pitcher really caught my eye. I love all the layering you did. It’s wonderful to be hopping with you today. XO- MaryJo

  3. Looks amazing Lynne! I bought two of the same star shaped gourds a few weeks ago. I thought they were so pretty and I could not wait to use them. Then my son and daughter got a hold of them and they are no longer, as you can imagine. So I am thrilled to see that you used them for your tray! Made me feel better. Pleasure touring with you.

  4. Lynne,
    LOVE your use of the silver tray!! I have one that is very similar and is part of a Tea and Coffee set…..And the candle sticks are also very lovely! The squash is simply delightful!!! Just beautiful!! Thanks for sharing!!! Enjoy the Tour!!

  5. Lynne, I am admiring not only the two-tray idea with those fab star-shaped gourds but the entire room!
    It all looks so comfortable and inviting – perfect for a fall night 🙂
    Happy October hugs to you,

  6. Beautiful Lynne! I love your mix of silver and stoneware, and your flowers are perfect. I’ve never seen star-shaped gourds before – how cool! I’ve always admired your husband’s table and that live edge. It’s all lovely! 🙂

  7. What a gorgeous room! Your large silver tray is so lovely in that setting. Love the long pottery dish for the gourds, the candlesticks and that wonderful vase. Just beautiful, I want to see more of that amazing room!

  8. Lovely Lynne, your combination of elements is so pretty, and of course my eyes went right to the star squash and that took me right up to the yellow flowers and into your beautiful room! So clever the way your added textures and pieces to tone down the formality of the silver tray. Love the unique pitcher too, and flowers are always so welcoming!

  9. Such a lovely vignette — elegance in simplicity. The size of each element really gives it impact as does tying it all in with the colors of your lovely room. I’m smitten with both the silver tray and candlesticks, beautiful counterpoints to the organic feel of the pitcher and the gourds and pumpkin. Happy to tour with you!

  10. This is such a great idea! I love the pop of color on your tray. I’m visiting from the farmhouse link. God bless you with a wonderful autumn season! 🙂

  11. A tray layered on a tray, that’s brilliant Lynne. I also absolutely love that you used vegetables other than pumpkins as decor. That squash is a star! lol Have a great weekend!

  12. What a pretty tray you put together and your room is beautiful! So fun to have done this tour with you. Thanks so much for coming to the Home Imagined party!!
