Elegant Autumn Display, 2016

In my last post, I shared how I decorated my Autumn Tree in the Living Room in an Elegant Theme.....
Click HERE if you missed that post......

I also decorated around the bottom of the Tree..........
Before I continue, I need to Thank these hostesses for featuring my post, Fall Porch and Yard, 2016 from last week's parties!!

 Thanks to Claire, over at Claire Justine, for featuring it from last week's Creative Monday Party!!
 Thanks so much, Claire!!

I also want to Thank Maria Elena, over at Our Home Away from Home, for featuring it from last week's Tuesdays at Our Home Party!!
Thanks so much, Maria Elena!!

And I also want to Thank Jillian, over at Bella Rosa Antiques, for featuring it from last week's Let's Talk Vintage Party!!
Thanks a lot, Jillian!!

Please stop by and link up to these wonderful parties!!
I set up the Tree on top of the platform that I use for my Christmas Village......

I just covered it with  gold tablecloth.....
I then set up an Autumn display on the platform under the Tree.....
I used a lot of my "Blinged Up" pumpkins.......
And a few other things.....

In the left hand corner...................
On top of a pedestal is a grapevine pumpkin..........
In front of the Tree is a Bench.....
Surrounded by some pumpkins......
A Bearington Bear is sitting on the bench and another one is standing to the side of it......
Pumpkins, Indian Corn and Pine Cones also occupy the bench.......
I scattered paper pumpkin doilies around the platform.......
A glittered gold pumpkin rests on a Autumn Leaf dish and orange charger......
A Tea set is ready to serve a nice apple cinnamon Tea!!
Over to the side is a velvet "Blinged Up" pumpkin.....
Over on the other side is a Fall Wagon......
I made the "Harvest Blessing" sign from an old baking sheet that I spray painted with chalkboard paint..........

The wagon is filled with a bunch of Fall goodies......
Leaves, pumpkins.......
Gourdes, pine cones..........
And another cute little Bearington Bear sitting at the helm!!
 After going through all my decorations , I found some acorns so I scattered them on the platform......
Next to the platform, is a vase filled with a Fall flower arrangement and LED lighted branches .....
 And more pumpkins!!
So that is how I completed my Elegant Autumn Tree Display.....
In a future post, I will be sharing how it looks lit up at night..........

On a personal note, Joe and I had the privilege of seeing Sir Elton John in concert for the 3rd time......

Sir Elton played for 2 1/2 hours without a break and graciously got up from the piano after each song and walked around the stage, thanking his adoring fans!!

It was fantastic!!

Soon I will be sharing how I decorated the Living Room in an Elegant Fall Theme!!

    Enjoy your day and may it be a lovely one!
    Blessings, Roxy

  11. Debbie, you would just think I am a terrible blogger if you came to my house right now! Our house is for sale so my fall decor is very subtle. I love the season though and it's finally feeling like it here in Texas.

    Your tree is gorgeous, of course. I love all the rich Autumn colors. :)

    Happy Thoughts of Home.

  12. Looks terrific, love the wagon and the bench with the bears too cute. That grapevine pumpkin is too cool!

  13. This is my kind of fall decoration! :)

  14. Debbie, you always 'do it up right'! Beautiful!

  15. You Dabbled with the bottom of your tree and created an amazing scene Debbie. I bet Elton was fabulous! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  16. Debbie, your tree and decorations are fabulous! It's great that you were able to see Elton John in concert. I grew up listening to his music. I never had the opportunity to see him live, but I'm sure he was terrific.
