Dinner is served!! My fellow dinner companions have contributed some top notch dishes for the occasion and I am thrilled to be in such good company. Our hostess for this Fall Harvest Dinner is Eileen from Joy of Caking. I am also thrilled that Eileen asked me to put together a tablescape for our gathering.
My color palette is totally fall and the setting is abundant. To show off the colors I chose an ivory polyester tablecloth and the runner is a repurposed door mirror. Upcycling the mirror is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time and this dinner was the perfect opportunity.
After removing the worn frame, the surface was covered with vinyl wall decals that I found in the clearance section at Target. Leaf garland was laid around the edges. For the centerpiece I used a large ceramic pumpkin that was centered in a twig wreath. There are two smaller versions on the table as well. Filling in the rest of the runner was fun and I had lots of room to work with. Wooden candleholders flank the centerpiece and gold toned candelabras were placed at the ends along with glass and metal pumpkin tealight holders. Various gourds and fruits are placed throughout to create a bountiful feeling.
Each place setting starts with a faux wooden charger with embossed acorns around the edges. The china pattern is September Song by Bristol. I love any occasion where I get to bring out my mother’s dishes. Here I’ve used the dinner plate, bread and butter plate and a small bowl.
The flatware is gold toned and monogrammed, with the forks resting on cinnamon colored polyester napkins. Simple water and wine goblets complete the setting. Thanks again Eileen for bringing us all together and I hope we get to do it again. Please visit the rest of my dinner companions.
