Fall Kitchen Table

I was scrolling through my
friend Sarah's post at Hyacinth for the Soul here awhile back. She inspired me to do a fall arrangement for my kitchen table after seeing her photo of a copper tub at Cottonseed Trading at Marburger Farms. The tub is filled with all of fall's splendor.


I just wanted to use what I had on hand to make an arrangement. I had white pumpkins, baby boos and faux fall hydrangeas. The copper tub belonged to my mother-in-law. It has way to many bumps and dents to count but that's what I love about it. She had the top painted green which didn't work for me. It was painted black to match The French Hutch and sits on the floor in the open space below. 

I love how the white pumpkins pop against the copper

This lasted about a week until I needed something low for setting the table

For this arrangement I used a basket with gold trim from Pottery Barn, the after Christmas sale a few years ago. 

This size is easy to move around on the table for setting a table for two, four or six. I think this will last awhile.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you will leave a comment so I know you stopped by.


  1. Oh, Emily! I really love both of them. I can see why you wanted the lower basket for the table and it's perfect for that. Love the small pumps, don't you? They're so flexible to work with. They really are lovely and I know they looked beautiful in your home.

  2. Both arrangements are gorgeous Emily! That copper tub is so fabulous! Such fun to play with different arrangements and change things around, I love love them both! Finally Fall has arrived in Alabama!

  3. I love that copper tub. I had my hands on one at an antique store but rejected how much he wanted for it. The florals and white pumpkins look great in it and the lower PB basket looks great too!

  4. Emily, I'm happy my post sparked your creative energy. Living with copper in the house is great, especially in the fall. Your centerpiece is fun and festive, both in the copper and in the basket. Happy October, sweet friend!

  5. Your mother-in-laws- copper tub filled with a fall arrangement off flowers, pumpkins, and fall leaves is stunning. The basket fun of baby boos and fall leaves is equally dramatic and lovely. How fun to get inspired and design your own centerpieces. I think fall has finally arrived and it is welcome.

  6. Your arrangement is lovely. I especially like the copper tub! Right now I have Halloween everywhere per my granddaughter! But as soon as that holiday is over, I will pull out the fall/Thanksgiving stuff (at least for a short while till it's time to decorate for Christmas)!

  7. This is what I love doing at home, and the official title is piddlin'. :)
    Both arrangements are very pretty, love the copper boiler!

  8. Both arrangements look beautiful, Emily! The copper tub must be extra special since it belonged to your dear mother-in-law. I'm loving all your white pumpkins, too.

  9. Lovely arrangement with the vintage copper boiler. Happy fall!!

  10. What a lovely piece, especially since it belonged to you mil. You arrangement is lovely with the baby boos and leaves. I perfectly understand the height situation. Your basket is so pretty. Happy fall dear Emily and thank you for sharing at “Love Your Creativity.”

  11. Both arrangements are lovely, and so nice that you used the copper tub from your motherinlaw! Hope you are enjoying fall Emily. xo

  12. Beautiful arrangements both, Emily. I love the colors of autumn.

  13. What a lovely table... I'm a sucker for little white pumpkins! Give me all of them! Congrats on your feature at Make It Pretty Monday. We would love for you to link-up at Tuesday Turn About via We open on Tuesday at 5pm CST! Hope to see you there!
