NC Part 3 -Autumn Leaves Tablescape

Still at the NC condo....
I pulled a few items together that I had, 
most of them for years, and a few local finds 
to create an Autumn leaves tablescape.
I'm using the rattan chargers again. 
The black fabric placemats reverse to red 
for another look. Two for one placemats.
 The leaf print plates are used for salad.
 They were a thrifty find at a local craft fair. 
Someone had decoupaged fabric on the back
of glass plates. I got 4 for $1.25.
 All the leaf pottery is from Walmart. 
I bought it on sale last year.
A wreath of fabric Autumn leaves encircles
 a glass hurricane pillar candle.
 Clay pot saucers are used as wine coasters. 
The classic amber stemmed wine glasses
 were bought in Germany many years ago.
 Grapevine napkin rings.
 I used a long hand knitted scarf as a table 
runner. These scarves are great to find at
 all of our local towns' art and craft fairs.
An Autumnized table! 
Ready for an autumn dinner... start with my


Stay cozy...

  2. Your really did produce a beautiful table for what it sounds like a very reasonable cost. And it looks like you had fun doing it, half the benefit, isn't it? Decoupaging the back of glass plates, great idea and it could be done cheaply as you indicate it must have been--a fun project. I might just get inspired yet, LOL

  10. Very nice blend of Autumn and Halloween with the leaves,orange and black. Your chandelier is dramatic too, and blends well with your grapevine napkin rings and leaf theme. Onion soup sounds good too!
