Rich Colors of Autumn tablescape

Tablescape time!

This tablescape was inspired by the centerpieces from my niece's wedding.




My sister told me to go ahead & take a centerpiece
after the reception.
She didn't have to tell me twice!  lol


I let the centerpiece dictate the colors in my place settings.



•Wicker placemats from Pier 1.
•Napkins from Urban Style Stitches on Etsy.  I love these!
They are reversible...betcha can't guess what's on the other side?
•Red silverware was an engagement gift some 21 years ago.
•Purple dinner plates are Better Homes & Gardens,
found at Walmart a few years back.
•Red salad plates from Oneida Outlet.
•Pumpkin bowls from Michaels, I believe.
•Purple glasses from Pier 1.



Oh yes, the centerpiece that started it all!
I cannot take credit for the beautiful flowers.
It was our idea to have the florist use the
pumpkin baskets, but the rest is all her talent. 


My sister stopped over the day after the wedding.
She was so surprised to see I created a tablescape
with the centerpiece.


With rich colored flowers that are soooo beautiful,
it was a cinch!

  7. Incredibly well done, Gina!!!! You just let the centerpiece get your brain clickin' and you just ran with it! I love it when that happens!!! The florist did a wonderful job, and I'm so glad that it inspired you to do such a cool table with all these rich colors. Don't you wish fresh flowers could last for at least a month or so? Enjoy it!!!
