A Harvest tablescape
Fall is almost here! My most favorite season of the year. I love everything about it and I love to create Fall tablescapes for my guests. These are photos from my last year's Harvest Dinner which is an annual event in my home.
I love Fall colors and I try to use a color scheme to mirror the palette outside my window on a Fall day. So you'll find greens, oranges, reds, and golds incorporated in my tablescape.
The burgundy turkey always makes an appearance in the Fall. He can hold gravy or sometimes cranberry sauce. My favorite green glasses purchased from Colleen at Brissonte of North Reading are a colorful addition to the tablescape.
I love the warm glow from my lighted table runner. This one is a pumpkin color but I have them in many colors. I use little ceramic napkin holders with pumpkins, gourds, and apples on them and I mixed the patterns on the plates.
Sometimes the tablescape spills over onto the kitchen counter. Far be it for me to leave a surface undecorated! I like to use antique pieces as cake stands and to display my first course.
Old silver trays and doilies are used to showcase dessert offerings. I am already planning this year's tablescape for my Harvest Dinner. I like to change it up each Fall although I do have my favorite dishes and glasses that I use each year.
