I started by scrunching up a scarf that I got from Target, a couple of seasons ago, as a table runner. I love the fall colors of the paisley pattern. (I'm sure you have some great scarves that would look awesome used as table runners!)
While there, I also picked up a couple of sets of these woven fall napkins. I loved the embroidered leaf and acorn embellishment. They were $2.99, as well.
To add some decorative accents, I decided to use the gold platter that I scored at the Salvation Army thrift store, last week. (I used the green one in my last tablescape.) I filled it with an assortment of grapes that I had lying around.
Then, I added in "Chef Dude" from the kitchen, for a little whimsy. (That's what we call him...lol!)
I also used a wood carved accent piece, from the kitchen, as well.
I love all of the grapes, acorns, nuts, and fruit carved into the piece. I think it works well in a fall tablescape! To balance the other side of the table, I used my harlequin patterned jar, filled with fall leaves and accents. I borrowed it from a side table vignette.
To complete each placesetting, I used the soup crocks that I scored at the Salvation Army for $0.99 each! I think they look great layered on top of the leaf plates!
I finished the table off with a few small pumpkins and miniature fall accents.
I lit a few votives and threw in a couple of lanterns, and we are now ready for dinner!
It is really easy to shop your home and set a great table for little to no money! Rethink how you use some of the accent pieces in your home and add them to your dining table for fun!
Hope you've enjoyed your visit today...Happy Monday!!
