Here comes Fall!

Hello all, it has been several weeks since my last post. But what can I say, "life happens"! I could give a lengthy synopsis of everything that has happened since my last post, but I won't. Instead, I am going to share a previous post, of a fall table setting I shared; when I started blogging two years ago. This table setting is super simple except for one thing, but I'll talk about that later on in the post. By the way, you can see the other fall table settings here and here. So let's get started.....




I wanted to try something that was kinda different so I came up with this look. All white with just a splash of orange. Hmmmmm! Delightful!
 


I needed a white table cloth, but I didn't have one, so here's what I did. I used a pair of lace curtain panels. Do you see the white band in the center of the table? That's where I joined the two panels together. I think the band adds a nice touch.
 
 

Next, I brought out the dishes. If you look closely the place settings aren't the same in fact, I used three different sets of dishes. It's okay to mix and match it adds interest. 
 

The leaf placed on the plate is a clear indicator that this is a Fall Table Setting. Small detail, big impact!!!
 
 
Remember when I said that everything was simple except for one thing? Well this is the one thing, the napkins. All I have to say is, DON"T TRY THIS AT HOME!!! LOL. It really wasn't that bad but it took several tries until I got the look I wanted.
 

The center piece is a platter filled with pumpkins sitting on top of a decorative box. Easy,easy,easy.
 

I switched out the decorative box for a punch bowl filled with white tissue paper. Don't know which one I like best, but they both work. You like?
 

 
 

Since the table is so sparsely decorated and mostly white I brought attention to it by placing the sunflowers in acrylic boxes, artfully displaying the napkins in the wine glasses and by adding a splash of color with the use of napkins and florals. What do you think?  
 
 
Thanks for stopping by.
 
2 Your Home,

  1. I like how you decorated your table for the season. I especially like the leaves on each plate. Oh and you definitely get extra points for that fab idea of using a curtain panel as a tablecloth. I don't have a white tablecloth either, so that tip will come in handy at my house... :)

  2. That looks more beautiful than any table I've ever set in my home. Thanks for the tip about not having to match everything. It does look more interesting when not everything does.
