Soft and Neutral Falll Table

Setting a pretty table is one of my favorite things to do, I could play with dishes and tablescapes all day long. You all know that I love a neutral palette in decor, well I also love a soft and neutral table.


For this table I wanted soft colors, so I started out with white pumpkins, grey velvet pumpkins white hydrangeas, soft lambs ear and dusty miller to make an arrangement in a galvanized planter
.



To add texture as well as to offset the soft colors I used grapevine wreaths as chargers.I washed them with a watered down mixture of white and grey paint . I wanted to  keep the texture and most of the original color and just soften them a little.


The softness of the arrangement set the tone for everything that followed, from the selection of dishes and cutlery to the candlesticks and napkins.


I tied the napkins with twine and added a feather.  To reflect the bounty of the season  autumnal fruits and gourds were added to the table along with twigs from the yard



I added pops of green with artichokes and dusty miller to the table.



The sparkle of mercury glass plays nicely with the galvanized planter. I used a table runner made from wallpaper that mimics planked wood.








It always brings back happy holiday memories when I  use my moms china. When I was growing up we only used these dishes for Christmas and Thanksgiving.




I had a lot of fun making this tablescape, I got to use all of my favorite elements. Thanks so much for visiting. I'll be joining these great linkups this week,
