Tablescapes, Autumn Leaves & Pumpkin Table with Chandy Wreath

On the Gulf Coast of Alabama, October weather is stunning with bright blue skies, sparkling waters, and breathtaking pink sunsets

Perfect for outdoor dining!

It can be breezy though,  and it’s hard to keep real candles lit,  even in deep holders and lanterns

I made a battery lit lantern to use on the table, which is easily toted outside, but I’ve always wanted a chandelier

The salty sea air and stormy weather necessitate decor that can easily brought in and out

When I saw this wreath hanger from terrain, I knew it was the solution

3 metal rods, curved at the ends, are attached to one metal ring at the top, which goes on a hook  for easy hanging

Hang the ring and slip the wreath over the arms from the bottom, placing the wreath inside the curved arms, adjusting the spacing until your wreath hangs level

The simple wreath came together in minutes  by wrapping a wide pumpkin ribbon around the outside of a grapevine wreath, and securing faux pumpkin leaf picks in between the grapevines,  and then adding tiny battery light strands

By adding the lights on top of the ribbon instead of under, you can remove them and use them on something else after the season, without taking the whole wreath apart.  The battery pack switch is concealed under the ribbon, out of sight but easily accessed.  These LED mini strands are barely visible so concealing them isn’t a problem

It’s so pretty to see it come to life as the sky darkens

Why does everything look so spooky this time of year?  👻

    • Thanks Rosie! Terrain has wonderful things, kind of pricey, but great source for ideas. I debated about buying this hanger for several months, kept thinking I should just make one, but I’m so glad I got it, it’s so much fun to use! >

    Jenna, this table is just the perfect way to enjoy the fall – on the water! What a fun setting for anytime, but with fall, it just makes the fun of summer linger.
    Great idea for the chandelier! I love to decorate mine. I hadn’t thought of hanging a wreath, but this is so adorable.
