My favourite time of year for walking and hiking is fall, when the leaves begin to change colour and the air is cool and crisp. This Fresh Fallen Leaves Tablescape includes organic ingredients that look as if they were just gathered from the forest.
In the Fraser Valley we see some of the most colourful foliage in Canada. The many walks in the park with my Sheltie, Cooper this season, inspired me to create this Fresh Fallen Leaves Tablescape.
Rustic elements like the dark brown wood chargers and black iron maple leaf dish and candle holders set the tone for this fall tablescape. I love the way the glass leaf plates reflect the light. They almost seem to shimmer like the sun on a bright fall morning. Adding touches of gold with the vase, pitcher and glasses adds to this effect.
I very seldom use artificial flowers or greenery in my decor, but these artificial eucalyptus sprays exude fall foliage.
I adore the beautiful gold gilded decanter and glasses that have been in my family for at least three generations, passed down from my grandmother. They are beautiful, but also very delicate, and only come out for special occasions.
The large pine cones were gathered from our property out at the cabin in Seymour Arm, British Columbia. Having one at each place setting adds the element of bringing the outside in, that I truly love.
Using place mats instead of a table cloth allows the rich brown colour of the dining room table to come through in this design. It really adds to the overall rustic outdoors feel of this Fresh Fallen Leaves Tablescape.
I hope this Fresh Fallen Leaves Tablescape provided you with plenty of seasonal inspiration. Have fun decorating!
