Welcome to The Tablescaper.
I don’t like to rush into the season of Fall.
For complete post click on More Photos.
There’s plenty of time to use the deep oranges, golds and rusts.
Purple doesn’t often pop into one’s mind when you think of Fall…
…but I love to use it for a Fall table.
I recently came upon these purple compotes at Christmas Tree (only $2.99!) and…
…knew I had to add them to my collection.
They were the start of the inspiration for this table.
Also while at Christmas Tree, I came across these…
…magnificent purple vases. It was hard to believe they were only $12.99@.
Just a short aisle away were bunches of eucalyptus. The table was coming together as I walked through the store!
So what to use as a base to pull it all together? My mind wandered to a plaid tablecloth I’ve had for so many years that I have no idea where it came from. My Nell Hill rattan mat/chargers seemed the perfect compliment.
The purple goblets came from the shelf to coordinate with the purple compotes.
The rest just fell together: purple plates from HomeGoods scored ages ago; sand colored salad plates recently in the clearance section at Christmas Tree for $1.00 and beautiful Laguiole flatware, which was part of my birthday gift from Kathleen of Cuisine Kathleen.
A true touch of Fall was added by the napkin rings, purchased several years ago at Walmart.
Isn’t it funny how sometimes…
…it all just comes together.
TIP: Don’t be afraid to use an unexpected color in your table. The results can be wonderful!
