I had the pleasure of helping design the table for our Italian feast, and it was great fun. The hostess and I decided to steer away from the typical autumn color scheme, and went with cool tones of purples, blues, greens, and black.
A bouquet from the farmer's market supplied plenty of pretty posies, supplemented with a few greens clipped from my garden.
Small circles of wood, stacked and scattered down the center of the table, provided the perfect base for our woodland tablescape. Bits of dried moss tucked in here and there completed the look.
We added a few mercury glass votives, and the candlelight did it's magic.
The table was set with blue and white dishes, mismatched green glasses, silverware with blackened handles, and deep blue linen napkins.
Mini pumpkins, spray-painted with chalkboard paint, made the perfect placecards. I sent each guest home with a bit of chalk so they could decorate their pumpkin how they wished.
I love how the table turned out!
