The leaves are changing now that November’s cooler temperatures are here, and I am enjoying the wonderful fall colors. Falling leaves is a nice theme for an every day tablescape for the month, providing an opportunity to use what I have in a new way.
Beginning with the base, I place my Maple Star Table Topper in the center, and surround it with leaf placemats. The topper pattern is free on Moda Bake Shop, just click on the link, scroll to the bottom and click on “Printer Friendly Version”. Brown chargers are placed next.
Turning to the centerpiece, I got out my pilgrim figurines. These belonged to my mother and they are very special to me. They are tall and heavy, and beautifully detailed.
At a diagonal, I place a garland of fall leaves between the pilgrims.
Nestled into the leaves on one end are a small ceramic turkey from my extensive collection, along with two ceramic pumpkins.
More pumpkins and another turkey are placed on another side.
White stoneware dinner plates are topped with leafy salad plates.
Everyday flatware and individual salt and pepper shakers are added to each place setting. Matching leaf napkins are held with simple wood rings.
Simple and easy, yet nicely festive for every day meals during November.
We eat most of our meals at this table, and I like it to have seasonal themes.
You can see another one of my turkey collection on the hall tree behind the table.
This table is near the windows for a nice view too.
The salad plates are from Pier 1 (no affiliation, just a loyal shopper).
Amazingly, the plates pick up the same colors in the table topper. It was not planned that way.
Do you do something special for your tables in the fall?
