Nothing is more beautiful than Autumn in the Blue Ridge mountains. We are so lucky to live here, and the explosion of color in the trees is wonderful, even in a year that has been too warm for too long. Finally, we are seeing some of the Autumn glory, now that the temperatures are getting cooler at night. It is the ideal time to showcase a pretty table of Autumn leaves. Now, here is the fun surprise, another free pattern to come! Bernie from Needle and Foot sent me some fabrics she will have in a bundle, and I have a project to share with you using them. Fun placemats for your fall table! Today, I’ll show you the tablescape. Tomorrow, we’ll do the pattern for the placemats.
I began the tablescape with the centerpiece. I placed Autumn color silk flowers in a cream color ceramic basket with some glittery pumpkins.
On either side are Indian corn, two silk leaf garlands, a couple of ceramic pumpkins and my crackle glass candle holders with unscented tea lights.
The colors are perfect for the Autumn season.
On the placemats, I placed chocolate brown chargers, my rust color thrift store ruffled edge dinner plates, and topped the stack with the Asheville Leaves plates from Pier 1 (no affiliation, just an addict). The colors in the salad plates are mirrored beautifully in the placemats.
Nutmeg spice napkins are added, held with wooden rings. My good sterling flatware comes out for the season.
Cut crystal vintage wine glasses, along with individual salt and pepper shakers complete the settings.
All done, an explosion of Autumn color in the dining room.
I love seeing this every day, and hope that it encourages the leaves outside to turn.
So festively fall!!
Is it any wonder that this is my favorite time of year? These colors just speak to me.
All ready for a fabulous luncheon or a lovely dinner with friends.
