Warm days and cool, crisp nights…this season always seems so glorious to me. Autumn days arrive with so much promise. Seeing the colors change almost while you’re watching, the clear nights with thousands of stars sparkling like diamonds in the sky…I love Fall!
Scarecrows and pumpkins…are there any two more perfect embodiments of Autumn?
I wanted to arrange a fun, simple table setting celebrating these two icons of Autumn. To set the stage for the table, I began with a Fiesta tablecloth in the color Tangerine. Layered on the tablecloth is a white lace topper.
After placing the linens on the table, I started out with this wooden tray decorated for Fall. It usually sits on my island in the kitchen, but this week it’s doing double duty as the centerpiece for my table.
The tray is decorated with a glittery orange votive candleholder surrounded by berries, pinecones, acorns and flowers in autumnal colors.
A metal pumpkin is placed at the front of the tray.
Taking center stage is Jareth and Sara with their charming sentiment.
“Camder Stripe” plates are one of my favorites to use in the Fall. I love the versatility of these plates with their stripes of blue, orange, yellow, green, red and white.
Fingertip towels are used as napkins. Two plates have scarecrows on green towels…
and the other two plates have yellow towels with sunflowers.
Leaf plates serve as bread and butter plates. Small green bowls will hold individual servings of butter.
I placed Tangerine silverware by Fiesta on the plates.
I love this little whimsical scarecrow place card and pumpkin holder!
Ribbon and fall foliage embellished pumpkins sit in “Lorain” sherbet dishes.
Time to light the candles and sit down to dinner…
Our dessert was a slice of Plain Cake. The recipe can be found here. It’s so moist and has a wonderful texture…almost melts in your mouth.
I’m so glad you stopped by and hope you’ll come visit again soon!
