Fall Tablescape - Autumn Gnome - Blog Hop 2022

 Welcome to my fall table with my little Gnome friends!!

I am participating in the Fall Tablescape Blog Hop hosted by Rita from Panoply.

All of the links to the other talented table stylists will be at the end of this post for you to get lots of fall inspiration from!
 I wanted to do a table with lots of autumn colors since we put on a beautiful foliage show every fall, here in Ohio.  I must have been in a quirky mood on my trip into Hobby Lobby when I picked up these cute little Gnome plates. Just so you know - I truly am not a huge gnome lover and do not have gnomes all over my house!!   
But these plates do make me smile!!  And I had just purchased a new gnome stamp set from Stampin' Up! and I just thought that these would be perfect for each other, so in the cart they went.  
I pulled out one of my favorite paisley tablecloths, full of yellows, oranges and rusts with a grey base to use with these fun plates.  Next out of my stash was the very textured dyed seagrass placemats.

The orange/rust textured border plates I purchased this year along with the Gnome plates at Hobby Lobby.
The twig flatware has been around for a while, I believe these are from World Market about 8 to 9 years ago. The napkins were purchased at my favorite store in Amish Country - called the Peddler.  They were having a 50% off of all linens a couple of weeks ago - I didn't even have the plates yet - but with my love for plaids, I knew I would be able to put them to good use! 
I gathered up my bark candles, mushrooms (which I used previously - here) and a mish mash of old faux fall foliage and two little gnome candles I picked up at HomeGoods last week.  After fiddling around with them for a bit I came up with this arrangement in an old bark tray for my centerpiece.

As I mentioned above, I had just purchased the Kindest Gnomes stamp and die set from Stampin' Up! so I made some little favors to go with the place settings.
I used the Peekaboo Treat Bags, and the Gingham Cottage paper for my favors.
I decorated my tags with some gnomes that I colored with my Stampin' Blends and added a sunflower for the girl gnome and a leaf for my boy gnome.  These are just big enough to fit about 8 Hershey Kisses and have a gusseted bottom so that they stand on their own.

This table was all about the colors and the leaves to honor our beautiful seasonal nature show when all the trees start changing colors here.  It is my favorite time of the year - when things start to cool down, the air is crisp, the smell of campfires and s'mores linger and the talk of football stirs the conversations! So I tried to carry some of that through to my sideboard as well.

As promised, here are all the links to more Fall Tablescapes for you to enjoy!
