Fall Tablescape Wine Dinner

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 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.

    I love this table setting and all those gorgeous purple bottles that really pop. Only one problem I didn’t see my name on a place card. :)

    Dearest Vicki, this tablescape is stunning! I love your use of colored glass and natural elements. It reeks of class and well appointed style. Wish I could write more but it’s going to take me a while to pin all of these pictures. Well done, Coco

    It looks great! Wonderfully put together with an aire of comfort, inviting friendly conversation over wine and savory fall dishes.

    Absolutely lovely! Elegant and rustic at the same time. The lavender and shades of green are very soothing and restful and such a great alternative to traditional fall colors. Always inspiring, Vicki!

    Wow! This is my first visit here and I love your creativity. I also love the name of your blog. Your tablescape is divine! It’s one of the most creative I’ve seen in a long time. I’ll certainly be back for a visit.
