Thrifty Fall decor tablescape!

I made a nice pork roast on Sunday, and it inspired me to set a nice {thrifty} table.  
Really I just threw it all together real quick as everything but the dishes were out already.
If you ever want to have a nice table setting, let's say you are having some special dinner guests over.
 You really do not need to spend a whole lotta money to achieve a nice look, and best of all on a small budget!

I have had these cuties for a few years now. I purchased them at Hobby lobby on clearance at the end of the season.

 I am loving these pretty Fall glasses purchased at the Dollar tree last week.  As you can see, I am using them for candles, sunflowers and acorns.

Faux leaves have had them for years I think from the Dollar tree.

Plates are from Tuesday morning a few years back.

The sun was really streaming in now.  This is my favorite time to take pictures in my kitchen.

Felt placemats, Dollar tree. Silverware marked down on clearance at World Market last year.

 I loved this shot, and just thought I would share...

I still love having my blinds up and pretty flowers in the window.  Some flowers last two weeks, depending on what I buy.

 DIY no sew Place mat pillows holding up just fine!

Sun is going down now, and the crows are looking real.

And here is my simple roast.
Large pork loin..
rubbed with olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic, rosemary and thyme. Poured a little chicken broth in the pan before baking just for some juices.
Cooked for about 3 hours, covered at 350 degrees, in my pampered chef super heavy bakeware.

I just love these cute pumpkins and pear... they are simply adorable and so unique... I don't think I ever saw pumpkins in such gorgeous colors... they make a wonderful accent on your table. Even the finish on your table is so pretty... everything looks perfect for an autumn dinner. Love the dollar tree glasses with the leaf motif and the pot roast looks soooo delicious! I just love those crows on your windows! Thanks for sharing this lovely autumn tablescape with us. Hugs~Poppy

That roast looks good! I bet it made the whole house smell wonderful while it was cooking. I love to let things cook slow like that and enjoy the anticipation of eating it later. Your table setting is very pretty too. Those crows look like they're ready to pounce on that roast! Ha!

Now that table setting is one I could do, but I'm not sure I could write it as well as you did. You're right, those crows did look real. By the way, I have those Dollar Tree glasses from last year. They make me happy when I use them - it's the little things.

I love your pumpkins, Debbie! We just moved and there is a Hobby Lobby in the area. I can't wait to go in there and see what they've got; we didn't have Hobby Lobby in New York. You get such nice sunlight in your kitchen. I love having natural light coming into my home, too. All the shades go up first thing every morning.
