It’s been awhile since my last post. There’s been a lot going on around here. But anywho, I’m back. As we all know, fall is only a few days away. So I decided today would be a great day to share one of my fall tablescapes.
When creating a tablescape, I like using items I have on hand. I only have one rule when it comes to putting the table together. It has to look good! Most of the time, I select the China and start there. On occasion, I select items randomly to see where it leads. Believe it or not, the latter approach works. I love this approach because it gives me free rain to express myself. After all, your creations/designs should be a reflection of you, and how you live. Right?
For this tablescape, I wanted to use a tablecloth. However, I didn’t have one, nor did I want to buy one. So, I got creative, and I used swatches from one of my sample books.
I love all the different colors and textures. Yes, there are several different patterns, twenty in all. However, they work! Wait until you see the finished product. I think you’re going to love it!
After weighing my china options, I decided that the blue and white Spode would add impact/drama. I think it elevated the look of the table. The addition of the cute little white pumpkins gives the eye a place to rest. Can you believe I purchased them at the Dollar Tree?
I chose two different napkins, a print and a solid. Now, there are a total of twenty-three fabrics on the table. (including the china) I guess it’s safe to say I’m not afraid to use pattern! The burgundy chargers ground the place settings, and it gives the eye another place to rest.
Guys, I love animal print, and I couldn’t resist adding the printed goblet. My motto, is “Every room needs a little animal print.” If my math serves me correctly, there are twenty-four patterns on the table. I promise that was the last pattern. You like?
The centerpiece was super simple. I placed a preexisting wreath on the table and added a lantern and a burgundy candle.
I love this tablescape. It is a prime example of using what you have and making it work. All the elements play off of each other by giving the table a cohesive look. My favorite things are the fabric swatches turned tablecloth and the white pumpkins.
Enjoy the rest of the pics!
Do you like using multiple patterns? I would love to hear from you.
