Autumn Tablescape

When I think of Autumn in it’s full glory I think or deep rich glorious colors!  This setting reminds me so much of a beautiful Indian Summer autumn.  I hope you enjoy!

My setting started using these beautiful woven round place mats I’ve had forever.  I purchased them years ago online from Crate and Barrel.  I have so many!  I only recently stained four of them the color you see here, they were a light unstained finish.  I will be doing a post on that later.  The darker stain reminds me of the woods seen outside.

I then added these beautiful green wheat plates purchased from a church sale this summer.

Then I added my green terra cotta salad bowls.

The napkins I got on sale this summer from Pier 1.  Don’t you just love the rich jewel tones on these!
I just love paisley too!
I can’t remember where I got the blue glass napkin rings, only recently too.  Short term memory loss I guess!

I decided to use my grandmothers crystal with the gold trim.  The gold has worn to an almost copper look that I absolutely love.  I think it looks great in this setting!
And for my flatware, I used my everyday again.

I really like the simplicity of these.

Doesn’t this table just radiate warmth to you?  I think so!
For my centerpiece I have several items on our lazy susan.  This has been in my husbands family for years and we have had forever now.  The Mr. just adores this thing.  I used to hate having it there when I wanted to decorate the table but I have now learned to just decorate with it!  I started by adding the yellow napkin on it I purchased from the Pfalztcraft outlet.  I have learned a napkin keeps things from sliding off the lazy susan easily when it is being turned.  That’s called a life lesson!

Then I added my SL hurricane filled with fall pears.

A small floral arrangement I through together with some older florals I already had.
 I purchased the vase at a thrift store this summer.  The gold overlay on the brown looks so wonderfully aged and mimics the gold on my glasses wonderfully.

I had forgotten all about this little basket until I was looking through my cabinet.  Doesn’t it look wonderful with the salt and pepper shakers?  I have only used it for sugar packets before.  I love this new application.

And of course I wanted to bring one of my newest gifts into this setting.  There has to be a candle in all of my table settings.  This jar candle just looks so perfect!  I put it on the plate so you could see how cute candles look on these small plates.  I love to give this set up as gifts.  I posted about that more here.

Here is a close up of a dish I got from the clearance section at Belks many, many, years ago.  Not sure if you can see the autumn leaves on it!  I only have one for use with my candles.

Check out this photo.  I got on a chair and held the camera under the light and just clicked!
It looks great doesn’t it?  I was quite pleased.

I hope you enjoyed my Autumn table scape.  Please be sure and visit some of the other beautiful settings
at Tablescape Thursday today. 
Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Very pretty table. You are so clever to have stained those placemats. They look wonderful that way. I would have never thought of that. The colors and things on this table are very welcoming.


  3. The warm wood tone of your table and the wonderful texture of your stained woven place mat act as the perfect anchor for your lovely green service plate. Your napkins are so pretty. Thank you for sharing your charming design. Cherry Kay
