Fall Tablescape – Using Turquoise and Copper…

Happy Monday! We are in the final push for the wedding. This past weekend we got a lot accomplished and crossed off the “to-do” list and it feels really good :) 

Today we are showcasing last years Fall Tablescape…enjoy :)

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 love this turquoise peacock pattern china.  It perfectly matched my large square plates.  A great combination and colorful Fall tablescape.

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
  • click plaster leaf for the tutorial blog post
  • 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!

Vintage inkwells and framed vintage photographs compliment each place setting. The use of turquoise and copper brighten the dining room with this Fall tablescape. The peacock feathers add a touch of whimsy

For the chandelier I laid curly willow branches around the arms and added round peacock  feather ornaments.

Curly willow branches and round peacock ornaments adorn the chandelier above the turquoise and copper Fall tablescape.

Copper pick-berries, branches from my yard and white plaster leaves decorate this vase on the sideboard.

Copper pick berries, white plaster leaves and collected branches sit atop the dining room sideboard as a compliment to the Fall tablescape.

Aged wine vine is the perfect centerpiece for Fall. With the addition of white plaster leaves and peacock feathers is a touch of whimsy

    What a great table! Your attention to detail is really what sets it apart. The framed vintage photos take it over the top (in a good way). What a special table for your guests. Thanks for sharing it.

    Stunning! Tourquoise is one of my favorites. Would never have thought of putting it with copper, but copper is perfect for fall! Inkwells are sooo cool!
