Fall Leaves Tablescape

I would like to share a Fall tablescape with you today, but first some words to set the tone...

October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came -
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.

~George Cooper, "October's Party"

This table was done quite inexpensively, I hope you enjoy it.

Green & brown napkins both from Pier 1, found  on clearance, I believe just over a dollar each.  Napkin rings from Kohl's and I want to say they were 38 cents each. 

Dinner plates from Dollar Tree.  Flatware is Gibson from Christmas Tree Shop.  Now I'm not sure the price exactly, but I believe it was less than $10. 

Leaf plates from Christmas Tree Shop.  They came in 4 different colors.

Glassware from Dollar Tree.

Wicker candle holder is something I bought  in the summer of 2010 while on vacation.  Leaves from Hobby Lobby.  Little leaf dishes from Target, again on clearance, a few years back.

I will be linking this up at:

  24. You've set a lovely table. The napkins made me think of green leaves. It's a beautiful, warm, and welcoming design. Thank you for inviting us to your table. Cherry Kay

  25. Such a great post, Gina. Your table is so pretty, and it looks very expensive. Nice to know where you found the leaves. Our local market used to carry pretty wine leaves for cheese trays, but no longer...and I have been looking for them!

  26. Your table settings are gorgeous, beautifully presented.
