I'm not even going to try and name this "Early Fall Tablescape", because I'm sure I'll change this up in a few weeks for something a little more "Fallish" with some colorful leaves and berries. So let me be honest here and just call it, "First" Fall Tablescape. te he. I've already turned my calendar page over to September. I did mark a "31" on today's date, but I am ready to move into one of my favorite months and seasons. yep, more than ready. Last week I painted a French-y metal basket for the Dining Room table, and put together an arrangement that whispered the first nuances of Autumn. Here are some pics of the rest of the table.
I don't like to go "full on" Fall until there are more changes outside and the weather cools down a bit more, but these faux white Sunflowers and lighter colored Hydrangeas seemed just the perfect way to usher in my first changes for Fall.
I added a mismatched pair of wooden candlesticks and a concrete finial on a stack of books, to the tablescape, to add a little more white.
I have an antique grainsack with a caramel stripe on top of a off white burlap fabric piece for a tablerunner. (I took out the seam on the sides to make it twice the length) I like a wide tablerunner to cover up all the "brown" stained top of the table. It's too much "brown" for me, so I like to keep it lighter and it helps coordinate with the linen chair slips.
I lit my first Fall Candle of the season last week. "Leaves" from White Barn Candle Company is one of my favorites to get me totally psyched for Fall decorating.
Are you ready??
We made a trip to Eastern Missouri last weekend, and I can't wait to share some pics from my "Nature" pickings. It's definitely Fall along the winding riverbank's of the small waterways near the Mississippi River.
