These plates came with the husband, a classic set of ultra durable Corelle dishes with avocado green flowers. I’ve seen this pattern called Spring Blossom and Crazy Daisy, but if you told me they were called At Grandma’s House, I would’ve believed you. I’ve wanted to do something special with these, but haven’t been inspired until now. A day at the pumpkin patch provided the perfect pallet for a beautiful fall tablescape.
Another item that came with the husband is our super durable wood table. I didn’t use a table cloth or fabric runner because the wood goes perfectly with the earthy tones in the plates & pumpkins. I did use a marble tile in the center of the table as a guide to pile my pumpkins for a no fuss centerpiece. And how fun are these aqua wine glasses? They were a thrift store find and added a nice subtle pop of color to the table.
I own at least two dozen of these gold chargers, they work with every set of dishes I own and have been used for a bunch of different events at our home. If you can find some you like, chargers add so much to a place setting. You can easily find a set at the Dollar Tree or splurge on a set from Pier One or Pottery Barn.
A really fun element for this fall tablescape is the individual Martinelli’s Sparkling Cider. This cider is made in our county and some of the apples come from the orchards down the street from us. Individual drinks can be used to showcase local items, to continue your theme for your event and can even serve as an option for placecards.
I really love how nicely all the layers of this setting came together. I changed the napkin fold a few times before I decided on a bow. This can easily be done with a napkin ring, but I used ribbon. This napkin is folded in thirds and then again in half and tied around the center with ribbon. So easy, but adds the sweetest touch.
I love having my family gathered around my table, whether it’s our family of five or 25 dinner guests. A beautiful table can make any dinner feel special. Do you have dishes just begging to become the star of your next party? Tell me about them in the comments below.
