Welcome to the 423rd Tablescape Thursday!
I’m squeezing in one more Halloween table setting before Halloween is gone for another year. I thought I’d be putting this week’s table inside until I realized it was going to be 78° outside today. So we’re back out on the porch for this week’s Tablescape Thursday.
I had a black and white table setting in mind, but somewhere along the way I completely changed course. This table started out with an orange pumpkin in the centerpiece.
I changed my mind on that, too. lol
Which pumpkin do you like best in the center: orange or white?
Pumpkin soup tureens are from Pier 1 several years ago.
I noticed when I was in Pier 1 a few weeks ago, they have pumpkin tureens available in two colors this year:
Orange, available HERE. Love those!
And white with a gilded lid available, HERE.
Oh, I just had an awesome idea! I wonder how the white, gilded tureens from Pier 1 would look with these gorgeous deer plates I saw while in Pottery Barn recently! Would love to see that combination in a table setting!
Okay, let me get my head out of the tablescaping clouds and back to the table at hand. 😉
I found these cute leaf napkins in Marshall’s a few weeks ago. They only had one set of four so I decided to use a mixture of napkins for this week’s table.
I alternated using two different patterns around the table, well actually three if you count the plaid napkins layered underneath.
Which do you like best with this setting: the leaf napkin in the photo above or the napkin in the photo below?
I found these cute pumpkin and leaf salad plates in Wal-mart several years ago, but never got around to using them in a table setting until now.
The yellow rimmed dinner plates are by Noritake and are part of their Colorwave collection. You’ll find the full collection, including this sunny yellow color called Colorwave Mustard, here: Colorwave Collection
I used the Better Homes and Garden “Turkey” version of this plate in a table setting back in November 2011: Thanksgiving Tablescape for the Kids
And I used the “Leaf and Acorn” version of this dishware in another table setting back in September 2012: Russet Shades of Autumn: A Table For Two on the Deck.
But this is the first time I’ve used the “Pumpkin and Leaf” plates, I believe. Only took me 5 years!
I’ve heard the pumpkin plates are back in Wally World again this year. They were super inexpensive when I purchased them years ago, just a few dollars each.
The twig flatware I’m using in this table is from West Elm several years ago. You can see it HERE but unfortunately, I don’t think it’s still available. However, it is available in the two different colors (silver and gold) here: Twig Flatware in Silver and in Gold
In this photo, you can see how I alternated the two different napkins around the table. So if you don’t have enough of a particular napkin, don’t be afraid to mix it up! Sometimes I think tables look better that way–definitely more interesting.
Happy Fall, dear Friends!
Looking forward to the beautiful table settings shared for this week’s Tablescape Thursday!
