Welcome, Everyone, to the blog today. I wanted to share this tablescape with you as we move further into Fall. The colors are a bit unusual as the tones are softer and tend towards rust and rose. From this view you can see the shades of browns, rusts and pinks that make up the majority of the tablecloth. Some green is mixed in and provides a lovely autumn look but somehow softer. I wanted a casual look so used a rattan charger and pottery glasses to keep it just a bit country.

Here’s a closer look at the beautiful colors in this tablecloth. They are a bit muted and really quite pretty.

The flatware has beautiful blackened handles and is one I use everyday. The handles have varying degrees of curvature adding some additional interest to the flatware.

Here’s a closer look at the Annapolis pottery water and wine cups. I’ve had these for years and use them frequently. I love their rustic look and they add to the casual feel of the table.

I used a dinner plate from Villeroy & Boch and a salad/dessert plate from Noritake. Using a round and a square plate together again adds interest to the table. The colors blend well together. The dinner plates are an unusual color and I was happy to see how well they blended with the tablecloth. I found these a few years ago while Thrifting.

The centerpiece consists of some beautiful Fall flowers and foliage. I love using baskets to display flowers and this fits so nicely with the tablecloth and plate colors. A rattan bow wraps the basket and helps create that country, casual look for the table.

I love how all the rustic colors come together in this table setting. The shapes in the tablecloth and in the china and flatware are casual and create interest. Love that the flowers are seasonal and could come right out of the garden. This was easy to put together and I hope you enjoy the slightly different color palate for Fall.

  1. Love all the Fall colors and those soft shades are just beautiful. Your dinner plates are a perfect match to your tablecloth. Are they the Siena pattern?

  2. I am not much of an earth tone person, but the pink in the plates and tablecloth livened it up just enough so that I really like it! Can’t believe how well everything matches. Just lovely!

    1. Thanks, Kathy, it surprises me that just a slightly different shade can make a big difference in the tone of the table setting. It’s always nice when your thrift store finds come together. Thanks for visiting and have a great week.

  3. Your tablescape sure is a beautiful way to broadcast fall and shades of rust. LOVE the pottery touches as wll. Saw it at Full Plate Thurs. 665. My shares this time are #45, 46, and 47. Wishing you a fabulous day and Happy Nov. Nancy Andres @ Colors 4 Health.

  4. Really enjoyed seeing the muted rusty-pink shades for a different take on Fall. The woven accents are perfect & the centerpiece makes a nice pop. Somewhere in the deep recesses of a box I have a set of woven chargers. After being packed for 2 years I haven’t a clue as to which box they’re in! It will be a welcome surprise to find them next year, lol.

    1. You will have such fun, Robin, unpacking boxes that have been packed for so long. It will be like opening presents. LOL. I enjoyed using these muted colors for Fall. They are so pretty. Have a super week and thanks for sharing.

  5. Lynne, I love how you decorated your table. –Also that floral centerpiece is beautiful! Thank you for sharing it at the Crazy Little Love Birds link party #12.
