Welcome Autumn Home Decor on a Tray Blog Hop







 Welcome to Debbie-Dabble Blog!!

I am so happy you decided to stop by!!
 I was invited by Katherine, over at Katherine's Corner, to join her and other bloggers, participating in her Welcome Autumn Home Decor on a Tray Blog Tour, which she is graciously hosting today!!!
Thanks so much, Katherine, for thinking to include me among this very talented group of Bloggers and yourself!!
23 Bloggers will be participating!!
Thanks to those readers who are coming over from Pure Happy Home following the Blog Tour!!!
Didn't you just love Maria's Tray???
I decided to set up My Welcome Autumn Home Decor on a Tray as the Centerpiece for my Dining Room table....
  Today, I am using 2 trays....
 I will be using this tray for a back drop.....
I bought this tole tray over 20 years ago for $1.00 at a yard sale....

I love the colors of the flowers....

I thought it would be perfect for an Autumn display.....

I started with a Fall tablecloth on my Dining Room table........

It has a silver thread throughout it forming pumpkins....

This is the tray that I will be setting up my Autumn display on....

I bought it in Gabes several years ago.....

I covered the tray with some pretty gold fabric that I had....

I added 2 gold mercury glass candle holders on each side of the tole tray....

I looked around and decided to just use simple pumpkins, gourdes and acorns, starting with this ceramic pumpkin which belongs to a set of 2....

I added a vintage tea pot because I thought the colors of the flowers on it went well with the tole tray....

 As I enjoy flavored Teas in the Fall.....

I added some gold and green pumpkins and gourdes .....

Pine cones, acorns and leaves........

And placed a Harvest sign in front of the tray......

In the evening.....

Since my son, Joey, eats dinner here with us each evening, I set out 3 gold place mats.......

And there you have it......
A simple Autumn display..... 

On a Tray.....
