Early fall decorating-fall table

It does seem that fall is in the air, leaves are turning, the breeze is picking up... I wanted to do some easy early fall decorating...with that thought in mind...I took some vintage trays...and spray painted them in fall colors and then stacked them.
Fall silk leaves got scattered here and there, and a few faux pumpkins adorn the kitchen and dining room
Orange salad plates, a rust pitcher, a few fall colored candles and it was easy to set the table this time. We are having company this week so I decided an early fall look would be perfect.
The fabric napkins have torn edges for a more rustic look...and the sparkly fall leaves and pecans were glittered with Martha Stewart glitter. I love making little salt dough ornaments with fall cookie cutters..add glue and glitter....feels like 1st grade all over again!
The dark bronze chargers, candle holders were a thrifted find, so were the orange salad plates. I stacked the desert plates on my little picket fence buffet, topped them off with my wool appliqued pumpkins that are for sale in my Etsy shop. I love making pumpkins!
White roses are blooming everywhere on our property....love fresh roses.

I made some simple rosettes and attached them to name cards for a simple fall look.
Joining in with these fun parties! http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ http://lbratina.blogspot.com/ Blessings, Debbie

You stacked trays look great. What a good idea. I love the white roses and the all the fall touches. Did you make the leaves and acorns with the salt dough? So clever! Cut idea to put the flower pots on top of the candlesticks. I am going to steal that idea :) Dianne
