Welcome Fall Party

Since Fall has me in his grasp and I have compelled to decorate everyting in sight I was excited to see the Welcome Fall Party over at Rose Colored Glasses I thought I would hurry and join.
This week it was my dining room. I don't want to get into Halloween yet so I thought I would do more of a fall harvest theme.
For my center piece I picked up the fruit out of the table cloth.
Chose my large poppy plates and rooster plates to bring fall color to the table. Gold wine glasses I picked up at a thrift store.

A small side table displays a small plaque that welcomes my family and friends. Looked for some new candles but didn't find any in my stash. Do you have a hard time finding taper candles? I do!

On the small desk in the corner I used some yummy looking pears to fill a square glass container. Hung a couples of oil painting that have fall colors.

My scarecrow surveys his kingdom from the top of the china cabinet.
A few fall leaves have floated down on my buffet.
All done. Now I can go visit everyone.
