We have all heard Mighty Oak and little acorn stories and I love the acorns in this tablescape.
My dear readers….,
It is time to admit the last couple weeks of Summer have hung on by it’s shirt tail in some places,…. but let’s face it, I believe it is time to hang it up in the Seasonal Closet along with the Winter and Spring wardrobe and embrace the Autumn and Fall.
Have you started to think about Fall decor yet?
I know, I know….right? …..perhaps you think it is too soon to be thinking about pumpkins and pinecones,…
And I have to admit Mother Nature is being a little slow in painting her leaves in the beautiful oranges,
yellows and browns, but in case you haven’t noticed, Starbucks has brought out their traditional Autumn drink
….the pumpkin spice latte and if Starbucks is saying it is Fall, then it must be, right? 🙂
BUT….but, as you know if you have been following me …I have already brought out a few tablescapes in anticipation of the upcoming Autumn.
I have yet another Fall Tablescape for you. I am sure you can get ideas by mixing or matching some of the settings I have used. I particularly love the acorn shaped soup tureen in the above pic.
I just love love love a pretty table setting and much of what I have is from shopping my home. As usual, there will be a source list at the end of this post.
However, as a teaser….I have also been working on a “softer” Fall tablescape that I can’t wait to show you.
I have been painting pumpkins! Yes, you can paint pumpkins and I will show you just how to do it later this week. So stay tuned for that DIY and soft Fall tablescape!
Back to this Fall tablescape, I have used another soup tureen which I love to use as a centerpiece. It makes for a practical centerpiece in that you can make soup the focus on the menu and most likely you have something similar in your cabinet…it may not be shaped like an acorn as this one is….but any soup tureen will work. Just work with what you have.
As you can see, I used two mercury pumpkins that light up and give off a pretty glow. (sorry, I forgot to take a picture of them) and surrounded the centerpiece with pretty autumn leaves.
I really like the fall leaves on the dinner plates which I have placed on rattan chargers.
The salad plates are a Tuesday Morning find and have acorns and ears of corn surrounding the rim of the plate.
I have topped the salad plate with individual acorn soup bowls that are not a matching set to the centerpiece tureen…but they work together.
You could use a soup bowl of any shape such as the rectangular soup bowl I used in this table setting from 2013, here!
The orange plaid napkins are paired with a rust colored napkin (one inside the other) as I like to do for something a little different, and the napkin rings are autumn leaves that I have had for years.
The cinnamon colored flatware is called Sophia,…..
….. and the tall amber glasses are from Pier 1 about 10-12 years ago. The stemmed amber glasses are from the dollar store.
If you like this tablescape, you can work up one of your own using whatever you have on hand.
Do you like to play with dishes as much as I do?
Have a great and Blessed mid-week day!
