Transition to Fall Table

It's not quite fall but already the leaves are turning in my woods, due no doubt to the dry, hot summer. I'm moving into the season a little bit with some fall color on the table. I like using my glass to decorate and having been doing more of it as the glass collection grows. Here's what I've done so far.

 Lots of red and amber and crystal. Those little vases will be filled with roses later today, before my sisters get here I hope.
 I think these colors go well with my oak table. Maybe later I'll add a darker runner and candles, and some leaves or nuts as the season progresses.

All the little crystal vases came out for this table. Actually, that not all of them. Actually, I wonder how in the world I accumulated so many...The center piece is a Blenko vase. I can't remember the name of the shape but it's a stunning amberina piece, very vibrant amber-to-red coloration.

 The amber pitcher was my mother's (and once again, the tilt is the photographer, not the table).
 I like mixing up my plates in a display. The little paperweight sort of snuck in--she wasn't supposed to be there.
The tall amber goblets were a steal at a local antique shop. They have lots of tiny bubbles in the glass.

Thanks for sharing all the beauty, of your home and at your booths. I enlarged several of the photos to see detail.
Have a great visit with your sisters!

Susanna your table looks beautiful. I love all the red and amber. Your mother's little pitcher reminds me of a sugar bowl my granny used to have on her kitchen table.

Gorgeous table setting. Those paperweights sure are sneaky!

The red and amber glass is perfect for autumn which reminds me that I have a lovely little amber Wedgwood vase. I must get it out as autumn has definitely arrived here.
