Fall Copper Leaves Tablescape and Hop

When I think of fall I am always drawn to an image of a big copper colored tree with all of it's leaves turning such a wonderful saturated redish brown, cool crisp weather and plaid flannel shirts.  So I brought out the plaids and all the copper elements I could find for this table!  Get ready for a copper overload!
I am posting this as part of the Fall Tablescape Blog Hop hosted by the fabulous Chloe Crabtree of Celebrate & Decorate! This is a fun way to get inspired about your fall decorating.  Each day 4 more wonderful bloggers will be posting their fall tablescapes to get you in the mood! 
The schedule and all the links will be listed at the end of my post.
It started yesterday- so be sure to go back and pick up Monday's posts, because they are fabulous!
My copper color started with a $5 dollar set of napkin rings and just kind of grew from there! I think I bought these at Target's dollar spot two years ago.
I didn't intentional mean to do so much copper - but when I put dark flatware out - it just didn't look good.  I lucked out last week when I walked into HomeGoods with a gift card my son's friends had given me when we hosted them for a fun weekend at the lake.  (they are welcomed anytime - especially if they thank me with HomeGoods gift cards!!)  There was this set of copper flatware just calling my name!
The gorgeous copper Moscow mule mugs are on loan from my wonderful friend, Kim, who has graciously opened her cupboards to my passion for tablescaping!  Isn't it nice when your girlfriends are supportive of your odd hobby so that we can do these tables with out having purchase even more dishes, because I did splurge on these copper wine glasses while shopping at Pier 1 with my girlfriend, Diane!  I am just going to call Diane an enabler!!  We all need girlfriends like that!
For some reason I think plaids and fall just go together simultaneously, but then again - I use plaids in almost any season! These plaid napkins and placemats had that pumpkin spice vibe to them that just wanted to be paired with these cute little pumpkin plates.
I layered the plaid placemats with some textured cream colored placemats to give a little less busy background for my new copper flatware.
My centerpiece is a simple copper pitcher filled with fall color staring some beautiful copper colored 
silver dollar eucalyptus.
Since my kitchen and dining area are just one big room, I felt it was necessary to take down the summer accessories in the kitchen and swap it out for some fall accessories there as well.
I love that copper colored succulent - that was from a left over centerpiece at my girlfriend's daughter's wedding!  I'm glad I have these hoarding tendencies!

As nature starts it's wonderful show here in Northeast Ohio, we all just sit back in awe and watch the colors of the landscape change.  It's my favorite time of the year!

Here is the schedule for the hop:



These links will be updated throughout the week so make sure you stop back to catch all 20 beautifully crafted fall tables.

I hope you enjoyed your stay.

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.


  1. Ann, You are getting me in the mood for fall. I really am drawn to your copper pieces and am loving the textures and colors you have chosen. I haven't seen copper eucalyptus and I like how it really works for a fall arrangement.
    Great placemat technique that really worked. Clever idea! Plaid looks so nice with your cute plates and very neat flatware. That is something I don't have is fall flatware.
    I learned several things from you today. Enjoyed your post!

  2. This is an absolutely stunning tablescape! I love copper, especially in the fall. I am so happy to be joining you on this hop. Have a great fall!

  3. Ann your table checks all the boxes. The copper mules and stemmed ware is stunning. Your choice of a dinner plate with little pumpkins is just the right amount of whimsey. I also love your hammered flatware, no pun intended. :) It is so complimentary to your table setting. The centerpiece is simple but elegant. It is always fun to blog hop with you.
