Planning a fall tablescape is both a labor of love and one of the best parts of the fall home decorating season. Blending the best of the season can carry the theme through to a harvest and a Thanksgiving tablescape.
Natural elements provide a canvas easy to work with, color that only nature can produce, and the opportunity to treasure hunt close to home outdoors as well as indoors.
That which nature doesn’t provide, Hobby Lobby, Tractor Supply, eBay, and my brother the avid goose hunter does!
A savvy tablescaper keeps an eye out for future holiday table setting ideas and clearance sales from holidays past. Patience and an additional 40% off clearance sale at Dillard’s secured the six new dinner plates, dinner napkins, and hammered copper napkin rings for my fall tablescape.
Burlap sandbags from Tractor Supply make casually chic, virtually indestructible and very affordable placemats.
To know me is to know I love the opportunity to show and display items from my antique plate and creamer collection. The Prussia Royal Rudolstadt bread and butter plate is a find from our last antiques inventory shopping trip.
It’s a tad too early for the fall Ginkgo leaves so I improvised by using my Robert Lee Morris Ginkgo leaf pendant.
It’s odd how decorative accessories that normally would not be paired together do, in fact, create the perfect look.
When Dave the Builder brought the Wedgwood candlesticks home from the antique shop I was not feeling it. But wait. After careful reconsideration it dawned on me that the steel gray goose feathers in the centerpiece cast an elegant shade of Wedgwood blue all their own.
“A September to remember. An October full of splendor.
A November to treasure.”
My thoughts exactly!
