Because this is my favorite season of all, I have a lot of autumn inspired things to use in the kitchen and on the table. I adore these salad plates with the leaves, purchased some years ago when Pier 1 still had stores. The pumpkin bowls are also years old, and I get them out every fall for cereal in the mornings, and soup on chilly days. For this season, once again I challenge myself to create a new table using only what I already have. I wanted more color, so the burgundy tablecloth came out, topped with a little single block table topper I made before I started blogging.
The leaf salad plates are set on white dinner plates with burgundy red chargers.
My leaf placemats anchor the plate stack, with the matching napkins held with gold beaded rings. I got out the gold flatware as its warm tone is perfect for fall.
Pumpkin bowls are placed for use as salad bowls or for soup.
In the center, my little pie pumpkin from my garden this year sits on a bed of silk leaves and pine cones with pumpkin pics.
Crackle glass leaf candle holders flank the pumpkin, with unscented tea light candles inside.
All set for a fun lunch with friends on a two day retreat at my house. We had a Mexican casserole on the plates the first day, then Ham and White Bean soup on the second day.
Placemats are a fun way to sew up a quick Autumn project. I did these Pocket Placemats as part of a Fat Quarter Shop blogger event a while back. The side pocket holds the flatware and a napkin.
These Flying Geese placemats were part of Autumn Jubilee in 2019. The flying geese frame a fussy cut center scene. Projects for Autumn Jubilee stay free on the blog as long as my blog is here.
Of course, placemats need batting. Have you tried Hobbs Tuscany Batting? I love the wool!! The cotton poly blend is perfect for placemats. My favorite batting is their Cotton Wool blend for quilts, all the comfort of cotton with less creasing.
