This morning I decided to set my dining room table for fall. I started with a neutral color tablecloth and my silver charger plates. Then I added a dinner plate and my fall-leaf salad plates and glasses.
I decided on a green-checked napkin. I usually like the napkins put into the glass for added height and color. But I did not want to hide the fall pattern on these glasses so I had to come up with another solution. I couldn't lay them across the plate as that would hide the leaf on the salad plate. Finally I decided to fold them into a fleur de lis and set them to the left front of the plates. Looks very complicated, but is actually quite easy to do.
I added fall leaves to the chandelier and little "welcome" sign for fall.
For the centerpiece I used a big bowl of apples and a scarecrow. I added some leaf-shaped candles to the side of each place setting and some more candles on opposite ends of the table. I will probably make a floral centerpiece later today as I plan to use the apples to make apple crisp.
This is a spin off blog from my main one where I showcase only the different tablescapes I do.
"Tablescaping" to me just means creatively setting a dinner table or arranging a side table. I especially like to do it in the summer, so I can incorporate my flowers. I collect both dishes and mid-century tablecloths. I have enough of each that I can have a lot of fun playing. I rarely set a table with all the same china, glassware, etc. I like to mix and match (there really is no fun involved in simply setting out an expensive matched set of "good" china, is there?) I love the challenge of designing a unique table with just a little cash and a lot of creativity.
