Plaid and Copper Thanksgiving Tablescape

I have always used silver and gold in my  fall decorating,  but this year I am really loving copper.
I played with some fall dishes today and created a  tablescape in the formal living/dining room.

I used  plaid place mats that have  pretty fall colors and a touch of my favorite

I bought these fall dishes at the auction last year.....

I layered the Cracker Barrel dishes with some copper plates that I found at Hobby Lobby.....yes the copper ones are paper!

My centerpiece is pretty simple.     I just laid my mounted antlers on the table,  put a rose bush on each side of the antlers,   a candle stick on each side,  a rustic pumpkin in the center,  a gold antler on each end (yard sale $2 each),   a  chicken wire cloche  with a bird clipped on it ,  and  some copper leaves.   Everything is just laid on the table.  
Here is a close up of the cornucopia on the buffet.   Everything is just laid in it...nothing is attached.

Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. That's really pretty Penny. It's amazing what is in the party stores now. No excuse not to set a pretty table anymore.

    I really like the coppery leaves you interspersed...that adds drama without being heavy, nice job, Sandi

  2. Fun to find a new color to introduce. We love copper around here. It is especially fun to use this time of year. It offers a rich, warm touch.

  3. Love love love the colors you put together, your tables always looks so amazing. You have a good eye on what to put together. Pink to me just always goes with everything :)
    have a great day Penny

  4. Your Thanksgiving décor is truly warm & inviting. I am sure your guests will appreciate your time & effort.
    Have a great day.

  5. Absolutely stunning! Such wonderful colours!

  6. I'm letting my daughters set the tables anymore. Are you having a large gathering for Thanksgiving, Penny? I would love to see their reactions when they see your table setting! :) Wow! Everything is lovely and so unique!

  7. Your tablescape is stunning in every single detail. I love everything

  8. I love the copper accents, Penny. I have always loved my copper in the fall. I bring it out and polish it and it stays out for the remainder of the year. Those little copper frames are adorable, too. xo Diana

  13. Gorgeous table Penny!

    You know I'd love the antler touches too!!

  14. Hi Penny, I love the combination of the pink and copper. Copper seems to be pretty hot this year. A local store had a gorgeous line. I thought the chargers were gorgeous until I saw that they were $65 each. A little too rich for my blood! lol! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  15. Beautiful. I love how you mixed your plates. What a wonderful color combination, completely gorgeous.

  16. Antlers and the color pink - two things I would never think to use for a fall tablescape but they seem to work well. Thanks for sharing with us at the #HomeMattersParty link party.
