White and Gold Fall Tablescape

I have to admit, I am not a fancy person!  So when I decided to try a fancy fall table for Kathleen Cuisine's White Fall Challenge - it really was a Challenge.  So here is my attempt at being fancy!
Kathleen's Challenge was to do a fall table using white dishes. 

Was it cheating when I covered up most of the white dessert plates with pumpkins and leaves?
I hope not- I was kind of thinking it was more of a creative move!
How else was I going to scream out fall to you!
With pumpkins
and more pumpkins!
Most of what you see here, I already had in my stash!
When I found this table cloth - it just seemed like everything just came together.
The napkins and the candlesticks are new.
Oh - the mini pumpkin stack and the gourds are new- because those are real!
Now, please excuse me while I go change my cloths and put on some makeup!
I feel like I have to get fancied up to sit at my fancy table!

Tablecloth- T J Maxx
Gold Chargers, Gold Faux Pumpkins & White Urns - Micheals- all over the years
White Chargers - Old Time Pottery - last year
White Plates and Napkin Rings - Pier One- last year but still available 
Amber Stemware - World Market - last year
Gold Flatware - Value City - years ago when they still existed!
Candlesticks- Marshalls
Napkins - Bed Bath and Beyond
Leaf Vine - one of shops in Ohio's Amish Country-sorry can't remember which one!
I am also not sure where I got the big faux leaves!

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.
