Autumn Leaves Tablescape

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.
 The rattan chargers that I used last week are here again. That black fabric place mats reverse to red for   another look. Two for one placemats.
 The leaf print service plates are fabric backed glass.
 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 encircle a glass hurricane pillar candle.
 Clay pot saucers are used as wine coasters. The classic amber stemmed German 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 a autumn dinner... start with my Baked French Onion Soup.

Cheers!

The colors are just beautiful!! I love all the leaves in the center. That's a perfect fall touch. I actually made some of my own fabric backed plates this week. I love the look of them.

I also saw some goblets similar to yours in an antique store recently. I reallllly wanted them but resisted. They are so pretty!

This tablescape has the perfect colours for a Halloween feel without the scariness - love it! The black colour really grounds the lovely oranges. The leaf ring around the hurricane shade is gorgeous. I just bought 8 of those leaf bowls at Walmart but held back getting the salad plates and now that I see yours, I'm sorry!

Beautiful. I love the decoupaged plates.Don't you just love thrift finds?

Beautiful table setting. I love the fact you brought it all together with using what you had. That was a stunning addition of using the decoupaged plates at a great price. I love using scarves for runners, you get dual purpose plus the two colors on the placemats. Loved the creative look.

Wow! That spells AUTUMN. Very nice use of color.

The large leaf salad server(?) is wonderful. I like the little grapevine napkin rings too.

Are the fabric-backed plates hard to care for?

Your chandelier is really something.
Nice job all around.
