When I decided to do my Fall tablescape this year, I knew that I wanted it to be different from years past – I wanted to bring in a little color. My dining room is very neutral so I knew I needed a pop of something so that it would stand out and not blend in with everything else in the room. I decided to use turquoise and copper. I have a bit of turquoise in other rooms of my house and I love how copper shimmers and compliments the bright turquoise.
I already had the large square dinner plates. I picked up the beautiful peacock luncheon plates at TJ Maxx and they match my square plates perfectly. Each place setting has:
- a vintage ink well ( I have a collection)
- peacock feathers from my stash
- a framed vintage photograph of each dinner guest
- a plaster leaf that I made a couple of weeks ago
- peacock ribbon embellishment to a white napkin
I added plaster leaves and feathers to an aged wine vine branch in the center of the table.
I spray painted pumpkins with hammered copper. I just love this vintage photo of my Honey Bee!
For the chandelier I laid curly willow branches around the arms and added round peacock feather ornaments.
Copper pick-berries, branches from my yard and white plaster leaves decorate this vase on the sideboard.
Hmm…I wonder who that cute little girl is
I love the blue hue of this inkwell…
Another place setting …
Aged wine vine branch as my centerpiece, complimented with plaster leaves and feathers.
I really enjoyed putting this tablescape together…thanks for letting me share it with you
