My Mad Plaid Blue Fall Tablesetting

I've been mad for plaid these past few weeks.  I just love how cozy and warm it seems - perfect for fall and winter.  I wrote about my desire to purchase something plaid for the house on Design Mom and I wanted to show you how my plaid obsession played out in our dining room.

I found this plaid fabric at the thrift store for $3.50 and it was 50% off so ...  it didn't cost me very much, but it set the mood I was envisioning.

I love blue and yellow/orange together - they are such a good compliment for each other.  I used our orange glass pumpkin in the centre of the table along with some yellowy-gold flowers that I found growing wild along a fence.  

I used teal dinner plates and added the bread and butter plates I got at the thrift store recently.  Aren't the orange and blue flowers perfect.

Have you ever used blue for your fall decorating?  It is a little out of the box, but I love it.
