The Rustling of Fall Leaves

Fall 056
Welcome to The Tablescaper.
Fall 010
We’re starting to get a bit of crispness in the air.
Fall 012
The leaves are changing…
Fall 014
…and some are falling.
Fall 017
As those leaves fall…
Fall 021
…they see to congregate into little piles.
Fall 055
I love the rustling sound…
Fall 028
…those little piles of leaves make.
Fall 035
Sometimes, a little group of those leaves…
Fall 019
…blow down the street.
Fall 043
They’ve got their own rustle sound.
Fall 051
The rustle of leaves is a sure sign that Fall is here!
Fall 053
Almost time to light a fire!
Fall 056
Ok, so where is all of this stuff from? The lidded white pumpkins, which everyone always asks about, were from Christmas Tree several years ago. I think I paid $3.98 or something equally inexpensive. And yes, I have twelve. Unfortunately Christmas Tree has not had them again. The cream charger with the raised roses were an off name dollar store quite a number of years ago. I know, amazing that they were a dollar. The cocoa brown dishes were from a very inexpensive boxed set. I didn’t have solid brown. They were a great price. I bought them! The taupe salad plates were a real steal. I got them at Christmas Tree this summer in their clearance department. I think they were 39 cents each! The willow mats were something I had been looking for. Kathleen, of Cuisine Kathleen, had some kind of a coupon for World Market and was gracious enough to include me in her order. A long sought after purchase was completed. The goblets were from a great sale at Horchow. They were in clearance and then they had some one day, some percentage off of everything sale. They’re very interesting as they’re etched. Even the pumpkins were on sale, Michael’s 50% off. The little white ones were also Michael’s but weren’t on sale. That’s when you’re glad you’ve got the 40% off one regularly priced item coupon stashed in your purse. The flatware is Cambridge. I’ve had it awhile. It looks like wood, but is plastic. The little gold candles are from Pier One. I got them on clearance this summer as Pier One considered them clearance. So I think that’s my tale.
Hope to see you Sunday at
Seasonal Sundays. It’s my weekly party about
what you’re up to this Season.

I love that sound! We went to a festival this past weekend and there were leaves on the ground. I just had to shuffle my feet in them and give them a little kick. I just couldn't help myself.

Great tablescape...as always. Happy Fall!

Dzoli said...

Just wondering what is hiding in the beautiful white bowl:)

Barbara F. said...

Leaves are just starting to fall around here, I love stepping on crunchy leaves. Beautiful table, rich warm inviting. I could just imagine a creamy pumpkin soup in those adorable bowls. xo

Hi Tablescaper!

I love your white pumpkins. They really glow against the dishes. I can just hear the rustling leave in the background!

Pat said...

Gorgeous! The color combination, dishes, glassware, flatware linens...all fabulous!

Debbie said...

I just scrolled through this three times. I loved the details. So much white and brown and yet SO MUCH variety. I loved the little corn husk pumpkins.

Debbie said...

And I love the sound of rustling leaves too!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Beautiful dishes and I love the color scheme!

Entertaining Women said...

The crunch of leaves under foot and the aromas of Autumn in the air...smoke beginning to furl from neighborhood chimneys and the slightest kiss of chilled moisture on the face ...indescribably ...amazingly ...magnificent. Dang, I want those individual pumpkin ramekins! There...I said it...pure unadulterated want. Thanks for sharing your beautiful design. Cherry Kay

Jacqueline~Cabin and Cottage said...

Yummy colors! I love that your table is next to the window. Those ceramic pumpkins are the star of the show! Lovely cloth too!

A Perfect Setting said...

The brown and cream colors are so beautiful for fall. I also love the soup bowls, you got great deals!! I saw those stems online at Horchow, but never saw them on sale!! What about those cute little acorns?? I haven't seen them anywhere. Our leaves are late falling because of all the rain. You've done it again, another beautiful tablescape!!!

Dianne said...

I find that the sound of leaves makes me feel sad. I immediately start to miss the sun, green, flowers, drinks on the deck, etc. Once the temps catch up with the look of falling leaves, I can get into fall. Such a great table. Love the pumkins. Dianne

Scribbler said...

Really, really pretty! I will take the pumpkins if you ever get tired of them.

Teresa G. said...

Gorgeous table. I'm in love with those little pumpkin tureens. I've been searching for some since I first saw yours. Love the rich colors and textures of this fall table. ~ Sarah

Alycia Nichols said...

Uh, huh...yep...you got some INCREDIBLE bargains!!!!!! Those lidded pumpkin tureens for about $4??!?!?!! I am freakin' out over here!!! Where is this Christmas Tree place? I am going to have to Google it. I am hearing about all these places that I've never heard of before...it's wild!!! Beautiful table with fabulous bargain prices to boot....can't beat it! I LOVE those brown goblets, too. You could drink mud out of those bad boys and it would taste good!!! :-) Have a great night...oh, man...it's 10:30. I'm goin' to bed! Have a good one!

Dining Delight said...

Oooohhh, I just love this 'scape! The browns and creams together are so soothing and the warm candle glow you have captured in your pictures makes me long to sit at that table! This is indeed a nice change from the usual oranges and reds one associates with fall leaves. No wonder everyone asks about "the pumpkin tureens" - they are gorgeous!

Kathleen said...

Lovely little table! Very cozy and warm, love the chargers! And of course the stems.
I paid 1.97 for the pumpkin bowls, and I have some with stickers. Are you surprised ? :)

So much wonderful texture and layering - very pretty.

Yasmin Smith said...

Gorgeous, rich-hued tablescape here! Such wonderful dishes you have aquired over the years,and then the newly added-to blend it all together so well. I LOVE the white pumpkin tureen, and that table
cloth....you did not mention where it came from, but I think it off-sets everything just perfectly! I have always love your tablescapes and wish I could come up with something as elegnant and cozy at the same time as you manage to!
Thanks for sharing all the wonderful
things you have gathered together..
you inspire me to get more bold with my attempts at setting a pretty table!!
Have a fun weekend....Hugs, Yasmin

Marigene said...

This is a beautiful table, A! Brown and creamy white are great for this time of year. Those mini lidded pumpkin tureens are so pretty, wish we had a CTS nearby...maybe it is a good thing we don't, come to think of it! Next time I go home I am making it a priority to stop at the one in Holyoke!

kitty said...

What a gorgeous tablescape! I love bargains & you find some great deals!!! The flatware is gorgeous...it really does look like wood.

Mid-Atlantic Martha said...

I love fall as well -- we're getting a CTS here soon. Hope it doesn't get me in too much trouble. Love your creams and browns -- so beautifully set together.

Maggie said...

As I was drooling (not a good look) over all your exquisite photographs I was wondering where does she find all this "stuff"?
Thanks so much for providing the legend at the end.
I really wish we had those types of stores with all those wonderful decorative items here in France.

Tina said...

Not to many leaves falling in my neck of the woods but soon they will.

Andrea (Softer Side of Me) said...

The first time I saw those lidded pumpkin tureens, I fell in love with them! I am still looking for something like those.....
Your table is beeeutiful!! Love those glasses from Horchow! Everything blended so naturally as always. You do such a beautiful job in decorating!!!
I just might have to make a road trip up north to experience the view that I saw in the summer for fall.
The crispness in the air and the sound of those leaves are delightful. Enjoy!!
Andrea
