With tomorrow being the first day of winter, I kind of waited until the last minute to post these photos of my autumn themed table setting.
This was actually the tablescape for my Thanksgiving dinner. As you can see, purples and pinks combine with golds and oranges to create an unexpected and eclectic autumn look.
When selecting a bouquet of inexpensive fresh flowers from Trader Joe’s, I intentionally chose one with lots of colors, so as to open up the possibilities for dish and linen color combinations.
It was almost an afterthought when I added the real autumn leaves from my backyard….
…but I’m glad that I did!
I had earlier bought pairs of unmatched napkins deeply discounted at World Market…
…and found that they added just the right eclectic feel to my autumn themed table setting.
An old china teapot serves as the perfect container for the Trader Joe’s flowers, which I cut short enough so that we could see over them while seated at the table.
I’ll miss my autumn table, but oh, here comes winter!
Flatware shown is Reed & Barton 18th Century (Reed & Barton 1800 looks very similar) and plates are Dansk Tivoli Belles Fleurs (discontinued). Glassware shown was purchased years ago at an estate sale.
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope that your winter is full of beauty, peace, and joy!
