Here we are two weeks away from Thanksgiving and I have yet to go all in with the traditional fall colors on a tablescape. I’m having fun breaking out of my traditional mold and experimenting with a different palette. This one reminds me of merlot, hence the name wine hued tablescape.
I love that this would be appropriate for a casual fall meal or a sumptuous Thanksgiving meal. Again, I chose to go with a bare table for a lighter feel. Often fall tablescapes can be quite heavy and ornate and that’s not what I wanted. The stack begins with a rattan charger. Taupe and white dinnerware with a flower pattern contrast with the deep hues of the table runner and centerpiece. The napkins I chose have a bit of a rusty color that helps with the tie in to the season plus the floral pattern works well with the pattern on the dinnerware.
I never tire of the swirl-handled flatware it goes with most everything.
The burgundy goblets are from Avon when I sold the product many years ago. Last year I found the larger multi sided goblets at the thrift store. My tablescaping godmother was watching over me last month when I went into the same store and found the smaller version.
This runner is a bit shorter so I opted to run it across the table rather than lengthwise.
The vessel for the centerpiece was purchased from TJ Maxx with the intention of using it as a serving piece on a dessert table. To hide the stems of the flowers I lined the vase with a chair sash. Bronze mercury glass taper holders provide a nice sparkle to the setting.
These are the linky parties I participate in. Drop by and show them a little love!
