DAZZLING FALL COLOR FOR THE DINING TABLE


If you're like me, you breathe a sigh of relief
when turning the calendar from August to September.
 Labor Day means the beginning of the new school year and
the chance to add a punch of color to your home
with those dazzling fall hues of gold, orange, crimson, and olive!


These placemats are a beautiful tapestry on one side and a simple plain pumpkin color on the other. I chose to use a solid mat to showcase the cocoa brown charger plates and then top them with a muted watercolor floral plate. Each place setting is crowned with a beautiful ceramic pumpkin!


The accent leaf plates are all different with one being olive green,
one being a deep orange, the other a deep shade of purple and lastly, a deep red.


The goblets are a smoke color...perfect for lemon water!



I selected my gold flatware for this tablescape!


A fresh autumn palette!


This year, I am loving different shades of the pumpkins.
The two for this tablescape are dark olive with flecks of gold....just differing shapes.


The napkins are a neutral shade of linen, accented with a burlap ribbon.



The luminary is surrounded by a natural autumn wreath!
The addition of peacock feathers add character!


Low-key pairings can be beautiful accessorizing


The softer side of fall..... 


Each napkin setting is accented with faux berries and autumn leaves...
a simple, but rather stylish touch!


Sometimes the dining room can be the most favorite room in the house!


Autumn colors just move the spirit, don't they?
