Tablescape Tuesday: Falling Leaves

“On the glorious splendor of your majesty, and on your wondrous
works, I will meditate”

‭‭Psalm‬ ‭145:5‬ ‭ 

The fall foliage around our home is absolutely breathtaking!
Who doesn’t love to drive
past a tree with leaves so golden that they outshine the sun?

This photo was taken in our front yard and these yellow
leaves, both on the tree
and on the ground, are so pleasing to the eye.

But the truth is, those falling leaves that we stand in awe of
are actually dying.

As beautiful as they are,
they must die in order to come back alive in their full glory again in the spring!  When that season rolls around, we will once again be enamored
by the different beauty it brings.

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves…
and enjoy the next few weeks as the leaves hit their pique
and steal the show!   The table runner with embroidered leaves inspired
this fall tablesetting! When I found the dinner plates there were only four of
each color…no problem, I just mixed
them to create interest! A trio of porcelain pumpkins are the centerpiece along with a
sprinkling of leaves from our maples and a
Chinese tallow tree!   The small pumpkin bowls were a recent birthday gift from
my sister-in-law!  Aren’t they cute?     The paisley cork-backed placemats work perfectly with
the dinner plates and mustard napkins!  Just a fun shot!!     The pair of antler candle stands gracing the table were made
by Seth last year…a treasured gift!      “A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver”
Proverbs‬ ‭25‬:‭11‬

    What an absolutely gorgeous tablescape! I love the ceramic pumpkins in the center of the table. Everything looks so beautiful!

    Beautiful! How blessed you are to have such a thoughtful, talented, and giving son! The new pumpkin bowls are perfect for this table, too. I personally love miss-matched plates. It creates interest and adds another detail without being too fussy. Love it! What time is dinner? Ha!

    • Kim, thanks so much! Last year when we were in Montana with our son and DIL, we spotted antler candle holders and they were ridiculously priced. Seth, without me knowing, came home and made me a pair! I love them! Dinner will be served when you get here! (Ha)

  3. Another great tablescape. I like that you used two plate colors. They do create interest. Your handmade antler candle holders are unique and go fabulously with your “vintage pumpkins.”
    I’m in awe you do a tablescape each week. I posted my last year’s Thanksgiving Day this week. It seems to be a tradition I make the pictures and never post right after Thanksgiving because we have house guests and then the race begins to get Christmas done. I’m also a little bit slow.

  4. Autumn at it’s finest Pam! I love the lighting in your photos and all your beautiful falling leaves~ and your ceramic pumpkins and those cute square pumpkin plates! You are all set for Thanksgiving, however I have a sneaking suspicion your table will change between now and then :)

    Nothing quite as breathtaking as gorgeous fall leaves! The table runner is perfect and I love the mismatched plates. The bowls are a beautiful gift. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

    Oh, Pam, I love this table! You’ve honored every color of autumn! Those pumpkin bowls are so unique and beautiful. Your guests will be awed when they enter your dining room. Just lovely, warm and inviting. Bravo! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch
