FALL TABLESCAPE PART 2

After a few cups of coffee this morning I decided to finish up my fall tablescape.  I knew that in order to finish this project I would have to hop in my car and pay a visit to my local farmers market.  I had my mind made up that I wanted to have those beautiful, muted green pumpkins to complete the table.  Well, guess what?  They didn’t have the size I needed (bummer).  Plan B ( wait….I don’t have a plan B!).

A few minutes passed as I was meandering around aimlessly trying to figure out a plan B while looking at all those harvested pumpkins and squash.  Then , there they were, muted colored orange pumpkins!!  I just knew that I could work them into the mix of colors already on the table.

I set them where I wanted, trying to balance the colors evenly on the table.   Now things were starting to look pleasing to my eyes.  I still needed a little filler around the middle section and went outside to cut some grape vines.  Well that did not go well.  Just didn’t have the wow factor I was aiming for.  I stared at the table for a spell, thinking of what else I might have on hand.  I remembered I had some dried hydrangeas in a vase that were perfect for this tablescape.  The hydrangeas were big and round so I broke them off in sections and placed them strategically throughout the middle of the table tucking them in bare spaces, under pumpkins and around the candlesticks holding the other pumpkins.

I then added my placemats, napkins, antique silverware and vintage dishes. Some of these dishes have aged brownish blotches which I always say its just character.   Layering is also key to creating a beautiful tablescape.  Also there was plenty of texture from the tablecloth, placemats, and the centerpieces on the table which is a key element when decorating.  So all in all I think I did a pretty good job and hope you enjoyed following me from beginning to end on this project.  Ta Ta for now!
