As a child I lived in New Jersey and New York for about 3 or 4 years. My memories of our family driving down tree lined streets with bold fall colors are just the best! Raking up huge piles of leaves with my brother and jumping in them was so fun! To this day I still have the “smell” memory of those leaves! So I ask you what says fall more than red and orange leaves? When I saw these leaf plates at Walmart many years ago I had to have them! Today I am sharing my Leafy Fall Tablescape that I put together.
How to get the Leafy fall tablescape layered look
I wanted a very bold fall look with layers of orangey red and black and white. The look of layering different plates is like putting together a fabulous outfit with the purse, shoes and jewelry. For this particular fall leafy tablecape I decided to use two different black and white dishes along with the leafy plate and a white dinner plate.
The strong color combo just makes the orange leafy plate pop! To bring in texture I used my woven bamboo placemats. Bright bold colors and texture just work so perfectly for fall. It makes me think of a pumpkin farm with all the bright colored pumpkins, hay bales, apples and of course fall leaves.
Hand Painted Cloth Napkins
I found these gorgeous hand painted pumpkin napkins in Park city at a little shop. They are way more than I would normally pay but I could not resist. They are spectacular! I would love a tablecloth to match. Mixing all kinds of different textures like these grapevine pumpkins, gold bubble glass goblets, real branches of fall leave and cream colored pumpkins just makes my heart happy.

You know I love to bring in a little shimmer to my Tablescapes and these gold and orange bauble napkin rings from Pier One are just perfect! It is so sad that they are going out of business! 🙁
Where to Place the Napkin
Which do you prefer? The napkin off of the layered plates and placed above the plates or the napkin placed above the placesetting?
Or maybe placed to the side of the place setting? I think I love it on the plate because it looks like a gift that you are about to open. The gift will be a fabulous dinner and dessert!
Pumpkins on the Table
White pumpkins allow you to use lots of different colors on your table. I do love the peachy colored pumpkins too! Remember this fall tablescape where I used peach black and white to create a fun Halloween tablescape? Or this tablescape where I also peach pumpkins and purple goblets for a beautiful fall tablescape.
I really hope this inspires you to try and use different patterned plates and layering them. Using different textures and unique items to create your own Fall leafy tablescape this season! One of my favorite bloggers is Yvonne over at Stone Gable and she has inspired me to create beautiful fall Tablescapes.
