Golden Fall

Golden Harvest 029

Welcome to The Tablescaper.

Golden Harvest 002

I’ve been holding back, but this table jumps full force into Fall.

Golden Harvest 014

The golden hues give you a bit of warmth…

Golden Harvest 009

…to fight the Fall chill (which I hear we may need by this weekend).

Golden Harvest 029

I love the many tones of this little plate at the top of the stack Golden Harvest 030

Golden Harvest 031

Next down is this magnificent paprika plate with all of intriguing curves Golden Harvest 032 

Golden Harvest 033

The dinner plate is this glorious gold which casts a warm glowGolden Harvest 035

Golden Harvest 037

And the base of it all is this charger with it’s own mix of harvest tones (a recent Christmas Tree purchase).

Golden Harvest 041

All of which are stacked upon this darling leaf  placematGolden Harvest 042

Golden Harvest 004

I love how each of these objects were collected at a different time, but they are all so harmonious when brought together.

Golden Harvest 010

These amazing napkins…

Fall 002

…with tiny golden beads upon each end, were a Christmas gift.

Golden Harvest 028

The vibrant napkin rings were a recent Michael’s purchase. Every time I look at these, they make me smile.

Fall 003

And despite all of the lanterns and hurricanes I own, I couldn’t resist these with their intricate patterned glass panes (a recent Christmas Tree purchase).

Golden Harvest 026

The flatware I’ve had for years. It’s by Gibson.

Fall 004

I didn’t have a basket the right size (I have a ton of baskets, but not in black wire, which was a must in light of the black trim of the lanterns), so I inverted a wire cloche and rested it upon an upside down footed wire cake plate.

Golden Harvest 016

I shopped my house for the carpet balls that fill this basket. Click HERE to see how they usually adorn my entryway.

Golden Harvest 039

The goblets were a purchase last year (or maybe the year before) from Walmart. You’ve got to keep your eyes open everywhere you go!

Golden Harvest 004

Hope that Fall is placing a glow upon you and yours.

Hope to see you Sunday at

Seasonal Sundays. It’s my weekly party about

what you’re up to this Season.

I love this tablescape. The colors are so warm and inviting and all the details really call out to me. Wonderful!! hugs, Linda

Susan said...

I absolutely LOVE your table! Fall is my favorite season and I love how you captured the colors and tones with your dishes and accessories. I wish I had seen those napkin rings in our local Michael's because I always look for things like them, but I don't think ours had them.
I look forward to more of your Fall tablescapes.

Gatsbys Gardens said...

Wow, you have convinced me to embrace fall even though I am brought into it kicking! These are my colors so I don't know why I resist going into this season.



What a fabulous tablescape with such rich fall colors and incredible plates tha scream AUTUMN!! I love the little plate, the colors are lovely. The rest of all stage a magnificent array for such perfect fall colors along with the leaf place mats! The hurricanes and wire fruit bowl with the golden carpet balls have a pretty sheen, they seem as if they were lighted inside them! Gorgeous! Thanks for sharing. FABBY

This beautiful autumn table was certainly worth the wait through the hot summer. I just love it. Those are among my favorite colors, and I love the patterns. I would love some of those chargers.

The paisley...the Jacobean print...the dynamic shapes...all this is so up my alley. Thank you for sharing another of your gorgeous designs. Cherry Kay

Monica said...

I love all the layers of the warm colors. The chargers are perfect.

Rettabug said...

Breathtakingly Beautiful! Such warm, welcoming shades & textures galore. Each one of those plates are special all by themselves but when you stack them together...instant POW!

I'm very impressed with how you improvised the black wire centerpiece...very creative.

The gold,patterned glass in the lanterns reminds me of a cabinet that I had in my very first home. It had a light inside & when turned on, it positively glowed! Sweet memories...thanks!

Shenita @ Embellishments by SLR said...

What a glorious table! Such warm colors!! I love how all of the colors were tied together with the patterned plate! The napkin rings are adorable; and love the stemware! As always, you have set a beautiful table! I look forward to all of your postings!

Miss Merry said...

Your plates are amazing. My eye caught the colors and shape of the top plate, but the others in your "layer" compliment so well and could all stand on their own. What a wonderful Autumn collection! You have created the perfect fall table!

Ames said...

Yummy colors in your tablescape. Love your plates and flatware. Have you seen your flatware anywhere lately? I see you're ready for Fall. I'd better get moving and do some Fall decorating.Happy Fall!

Gorgeous autumn colors in your tablescape. It is very warm and welcoming.

Sandy said...

Incredible!!! So beautiful and cozy and warm, I would hate to put food on them! I just love how you let us know what everything is.....thank you for that. I just bought 3 place settings of Fiesta Paprika and Marigold, put them with my red that I already had, they are going to be so pretty this fall! I don't have your ability for tablescaping, that is for sure but I sure do get some great ideas!!!! Thank you again for this lovely setting.....Sandy

Sarah said...

Perfect fall tables cape. I love the way you mixed the different plates and the chargers were a great find. I've been searching for something like these myself. Wish we had a Christmas Tree Store. ~ Sarah

Robin said...

What a rich looking fall table. Every one of the dishes are beautiful on their own and even better stacked together. I hope CTS has some nice things left when I visit my "old" one in NJ the end of October. I miss that place!

Daphne said...

That salad plate is just dreamy! I especially like the two paisley prints together.

Pattie T. said...

These plates are just stunning! I love plates that have a bit of wiggle to them. One is just more beautiful than the next in this grouping. Another lovely table, as usual. The colors are gorgeous, and like you, as much as I hate to see the summer go, I do love the colors of fall.
