Leafy Looks for Fall Tablesettings: from Zero $’s to Top Shelf

Filed under: Color usage, Gifts, Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , , , — michaeldelicio @ 2:21 PM

For many, Autumn is the favorite season of the year. The weather is crisp, but not frigid. The holiday bustle hasn’t quite set in yet. Summer’s green glory is being replaced with warm reds and golds.

Why wait for Thanksgiving to bring some of this beauty to your dinner table?

Zero $ Budget Fall Looks for the Table: Help yourself to Autumn’s natural decorations, artfully arranged.

Small Investments: The marketplace is filled with pretty little things to add Fall’s special ambiance to your table.  The prices are  recession friendly, and you can use them year after year.  Here are a few I found.

Brownstone Table Linens, Modern Leaf from Macy’s, Acorn Plate from Crate and Barrel, Excel Antique copper Leaf Napkin Rings from Macy’s

I’d love to see the oak leaf napkin holders combined with the acorn dessert plates, over a fern green tablecloth.

This Leaf Salad Plate from Pottery Barn is a great way to serve a green salad, any time of the year.

Pier 1 Red Leaf Platters, Vera Turning Leaf Napkin from Macy’s, Margo Leaf Salad Plate from Crate and Barrel.

I think the Red Leaf Platters from Pier 1 just GLOW with the warmth of the season.

This exquisite hand painted china from Bloomingdale’s, “Frivole” by Brenardaud  (left) has a leafy, whimsical pattern, that transcends the season, but can certainly be interpreted for Fall.  Truly a collectible heirloom pattern. It might be worth it to get married, and register at Bloomie’s,  JUST to obtain this stunning china!!

 The Majolica Overlapping Begonia Leaves Plate (right)
 is from Marys-Antiques.com and is a collectible antique pattern. Thanks to the internet, collecting old patterns is SO EASY and so much fun!

Autumn is fleeting.  I’m beginning to miss it already!  Soon winter will be setting in.  So make the most of it, indoors and out!
