Fall Tablescape

Fall is here.
One of my favorite seasons.
I love the fall colours..  
and I love decorating for fall.

Fall Tablescape

One of the places in my house that I love to decorate is in my dining room.  I love to be able to set out my dishes.  The oranges, reds, yellows and greens of fall bring so much colour to my table.   

For each setting, I used the burlap placemats that I made.  Along with the orange/brown placemats, I made green/brown and then a pinkish/yellow/brown ones.  Last fall I had bought orange and green coloured dishes that I used for chargers.  The rest of the dishes that I used were an antique set that I bought that were yellow, orange, green and grey.  I alternated the colours patterns to bring them all together.

For the centerpiece, I used two leaf placemats that I bought at the Dollar Tree. I love using candles as part of my tablescapes and for this one I used a Candle Lite candleholder and candles.  The candles that I used in my holder were pear, apple and apricot shape and smells... Wonderful smelling.  To complete my tablescape I added leaves that I bought from the Dollar Tree in the candle holder and also on each place setting.

Simple and Elegant!

  1. You have to put together such a pretty fall table. Love it, Marlys.

  2. Wow, all that beautiful color is striking!

  3. Your autumn palette is so pretty and the table looks very inviting!

  4. Hi there, Marlys! I'm visiting from Christine's "Table It!" blog party. First, I want to tell you how much I like your dining room chairs. The "grid" design is really cool!

    I'm impressed that you made those burlap placemats!!! That must have taken forever-and-a-day!!! They look great, though, and I'm sure they were well worth the time for the number of occasions you'll be able to use them over the years.

    I like how you alternated the colors in the place settings and then united them all by using the same placemats, flatware and stemware. That's a wonderfully coordinated look!

    Blessings to you and yours this fall season! Very nice tablescape!!!

  5. I love the colors of your table! and those placemats are worth stealing. Ok I wont but I;m just saying....if they come up missing? It wasn't me! lol
