Fall Tablescape

It's definitely time for a Fall tablescape. Pat used a Bordallo Pinheiro leaf shaped bowl as the inspiration piece for this week's table.
Over view of the table

Pat used a piece of burlap across the table to add a little texture but not cover it entirely

The stack - Flatware is "Montana" by Gourmet Settings

Pat chose a fan fold - the fan sits in the napkin ring and is hidden by a Fall leaf

The inspiration leaf - you can see the beautiful colors that Pat used for the dishware

This layer is an Ivory Fiesta salad plate

This Paprika Fiesta luncheon plate is from Kohl's. No one seems to know what it does not have the same typical rim as all other Fiestaware plates.

The brown charger holds it all

The five piece flatware place setting

What tablescaper doesn't use this versatile glassware from the Dollar Store? 

Our TJ Maxx store just opened up (Yippeeee!!!!!) - Pat's first purchase was three sets of these candle holders in assorted sizes.

Yes, Pat used more hay this week........just when I finally got last week's tablescape cleaned up. The centerpiece is a mixture of fresh and faux squash mixed with fall berries and leaves on small hay bales.

We will be joining Cuisine Kathleen's "Let's Dish" this Wednesday: And don't forget next week's challenge - Kathleen has challenged tablescapers to design a Fall table using only white plates and one other color. It's always a lot of fun to see what everyone comes up with.


  1. Very nice ladies. I love the paprika Fiesta salad plates with the Bordallo Pinheiro leaf bowls. The Napkins are the perfect color to bring all of the pieces of the stack together. I feel for you having to clean up more hay. However, the hay does work very nicely with the gourds for the fall theme. I do have to say that the cow table from the other day was one on the cutest tablescapes I had ever seen and surely was well worth the effort to clean up all of that hay.

  2. I love the leaf shaped plate which inspired your very perfect fall colors! Linda

  3. This table is easy to like. It's simple enough to not be offputting yet it shows attention to detail that makes it warm and inviting.

  4. Your leaf shaped plates are magnificent!

    Do leave a comment when you fisit.
