Fall Table

I'm joining Debra at Common Ground for Vintage 
Inspiration Friday "Setting a Fall Table" 
A Stroll Through Life  for "Table Top Tuesday".
I set a table for two today with my fall leaf dishes.

 Since my dining room and table are both small,
with space limited, I am forced to keep things on a 
rather small and simple scale.

The centerpiece is a lovely metal tray from
Columbus Architectural Salvage with moss
from my yard and an acorn purchased at Meijer.

Down the middle of the runner, I laid a
rusty metal leaf garland interspersed with
mini pumpkins and candles.

I used two dinner plates for my setting.  The bottom
green plate is from Steinmart and the leaf plate is
from Dollar Tree.  The soup bowl is a
Goodwill find.

And as always ~ candlelight sets the mood.

Table runner and napkins ~ Old Time Pottery
Napkin rings ~ home made
Glass candle holders ~ Goodwill
Glassware ~ Dollar Tree
Pine cone candles ~ gift
Metal leaf garland ~ purchased many years ago

Your table vignette is so pretty, with all its green accessories. But the leaf plate is my absolute favorite piece!! Dollar Tree? Wow, I am impressed.

Your table looks lovely. It's amazing what's out there now and the prices are so good. Loving the red leaf plate...for a dollar, I'd buy more!

Cindy your blog header and post are so pretty! I love it all! I dream of having a beautiful table setting for a holiday dinner. Maybe one day I'll achieve it.

Btw, I have one of those acorns too but it's so big I'm never quite sure how to display it!

Hello! I don't believe we've met before, thanks for your comment on my blog!

This is a beautiful fall tablescape, luscious colors! Love that tray centerpiece!

I understand what you mean about preferring to buy dishes rather than pay $1000 to have the tree cut down!!

Your table is so lovely, from the centerpiece to the pretty dishes. I have a small dining table, too, and it is hard not to overcrowd it. You did a great job making such a pretty tablescape!!
