Hey y’all…Have we mentioned to you how excited we are at the arrival of Fall? It’s our favorite season for many reasons – the main one being that this kicks off our season of entertaining family and friends.
We’ve teamed up with 31 blogging friends to bring you everything related to Fall decor – mantels, tablescapes, wreaths and crafts.
Today it’s all about tablescapes. Last year you may recall that Jenn and I created a Fall Tablescape that was a riot of traditional color. This year I was inspired to create a wine dinner party.
I love this vintage purple glassware that we used for Jenn’s wedding last Fall.
The main centerpiece is this treasured antique dough bowl. I wanted my party to be casual – not stuffy – so, I filled the bowl with wine corks and placed pillar candles inside.
Instead of flowers I bought artichokes because they were on sale and because they were the perfect color.
The greenery was clipped from my front yard shrubbery. Here’s where I really had some fun. I created this Wine List board and a printable so our guests can make a selection…
I will share more of this project with you on Thursday!
I crafted individual place cards from miniature clay pots and succulents.
The smaller wooden teak bowls were a wedding gift from decades ago…
When I’m setting the table I always try to use what I already have on hand. The white dinner plates were purchased a couple of years ago from the Dollar tree. The driftwood chargers were also a previous purchase.
New purchases were the luncheon plates – on clearance at Target. I really loved how they look like hammered metal…and at $2 a piece I couldn’t pass them up! The grainsack napkins and runner were purchased on clearance from World Market.
This 1920’s bottle is my personal favorite…
…and this ink bottle is a close second
Remember last week I shared with you how we have so many wine corks?
Hope you liked our Fall Tablescape Wine Dinner party. Don’t forget to visit our friends and their fabulous decor!
