A few days ago, I shared with you my fall decorations in a post called, Getting Ready for Fall. Today, I am sharing with you my fall dining room tablescape.
I worked on it yesterday; but, I felt like something was missing. I had plenty of items already to decorate with; but, I wanted to add just a few little things. I didn't want to spend a lot of money to do it. So, I decided to challenge myself, to see if I could complete the job, with items from Dollar Tree.
With so much color going on in the rest of the house, I wanted the dining table to be just as glorious. I found these cream-colored plates at Dollar Tree and thought they were a good starting point.
A couple of days ago, I purchased these olive green salad plates, from the clearance section, at Big Lots. They were $2.00 each. The little details are somewhat Tuscan in styling. I thought they would layer nicely on the Dollar Tree plates.
While at Dollar Tree, I also found these cute little pumpkins, with the sprigs on top. I thought they would be really cute, at each placesetting. I also grabbed a bag of 50 leaves.
I envisioned adding some green stemware to the table. I found these at Dollar Tree, as well.
I saw a picture in a magazine, a while back, and loved the mix of stemware. I used my own amber goblets, and added a stem of crystal, to play off the candelabras given to me by my
The table was coming together nicely. I went around and started gathering accessories from all over the house.
The amber mosaic rose bowls, sitting in the feathers, are from my coffee table in the family room. I brought the pedestal in from the living room, to elevate one. The cross, in the second photo, below, is from the china hutch.
My total at Dollar Tree came to $20.57; and I think all of the components work well together!
I hope that you have enjoyed visiting with me today; and as always, "Happy Decorating!"
