Hey all! Well according to my Instagram feed, Fall is here! Meanwhile, in Florida it is still in the 90’s. However this Ohio girl is trying to adapt to Florida life. I grew up having all the seasons, and Fall was always my favorite. I loved everything about it, the colors, the smell, the sweatshirts! So what is a girl to do? Like I said I am am trying to adapt. So I light my Autumn candle, crank the air conditioning, and try to bring some of the Fall colors indoors. Specifically, I am going for a Jewel Tone Fall Tablescape.
I have to admit, I am VERY proud of myself in regards to this season’s color palette. I Corey Decker used color! It’s not even just blue and green, it has reds, and oranges, and gorgeous jewel tones. I am so dang proud of myself!
I even tried out using some deep hunter green stemware! I loved it, but I think I gravitated back towards the clear glass by the end of the photo shoot, but I did include a couple of the outtakes! For the actual table setting, I kept it simple. I used our everyday white dishes, threw in a napkin for some color and a basic piece of brown card stock for a name placement card. I really just wanted to keep it as basic as possible because I felt like there was already a lot going on. I just snagged a sprig of eucalyptus from the centerpiece and laid it delicately on the plate. Done and done! ( Spoiler alert: The gold flatware are actually plastic! I use just use them for staging purposes. Winning!)
I have never been an overly ecstatic lover of color, but I am getting my toes wet and think I might start finding some middle ground. Okay, now I am about to really blow your mind! Forever ago I made a table runner tray that I use on repeat for most of my Holiday Tablescapes. Why? Because it is so dang practical! I love making the table look beautiful, but let’s be real. It’s often extremely impractical. It’s hard to actually serve food when your table is full of stems. Enter in the table runner tray! Just pick it up and move it conveniently out of the way! No muss, no fuss!
