A mix of sunny yellows, perky pinks with a dash of fuchsia brings sunshine and moonbeams—with candles—to this table designed to warm up a chilly night.
By mixing both flickering candlelight and metallic ribbon filled with teeny-weeny LED bulbs, you can ratchet-up any lay-out into a downright in-your-face, not-to-be ignored event.
"After culling as many treasures, bits and pieces, and tongue-in-cheek surprises from around my house I did what I too set out to do - I ran the stairs today."
With a sage-on-sage table linen and matching napkins, the basic place setting has the identical dinner, and salad plate, but with three different alternating colored bowls ranging from teal, to lime-green to blue for pops of color. Square burnt-orange plates set on the diagonal hold bread and butter.
Eucalyptus, pumpkins, grape vines, home-grown fallen leaves, gourds and more add color to a fall table.
The "kitchen witch" and her minions will guard the food and drink stations.
Try adding that extra touch, that unexpected surprise, that "I didn't see it coming'' element to your tablesetting.
A patterned tablecloth, a vintage box filled with seasonal decor, and "moderne" blue plates create a memorable fall table.
