Harvest Tablescape

The leaves are turning from red, orange and yellow to brown. Pumpkins have appeared on everyone's front porches and the fields are full of baled hay. We've already had a first dusting of snow. It's time for making soup and other comfort foods so I put together a harvest tablescape to reflect the fall season.

The warm wood of my mission style table looks perfect with the autumn colors.

I started with these large galvanized lanterns that I bought last year at the Las Vegas trade show. Aren't they awesome? I've already used them several times for different events.

I dropped a floral wreath with a few sunflowers around the base of the middle  lantern then mounded several faux pumpkins along a dhurrie table runner. My pumpkins are of all varieties, velvet, resin, and natural materials. I like the mix of textures.

I layered some zinc chargers with brown tranferware.

 I found these Staffordshire plates made by Meakin at a local thrift store. I paid less than $5 each.

 It is the Fair Winds patterns featuring a clipper ship bordered with other historical American scenes.

My everyday flatware is American Colonial by Oneida. I love the satin finish that makes it look like pewter. 

 % 100 linen dishtowels are tied into a knot making for a generous napkin.

This was very easy to put together and is casual enough for every day but pretty enough for a party!
