Fall Bridal Shower Tablescape

Tomorrow night I am hosting a wedding shower for one of the girls in my Bunco group.

It’s just a small get together for the girls in the group but I want it to be something special for the bride-to-be. Just like with my Fall mantel I worked with what I had minus the pumpkins I purchased last week.

The silver table runner I have used for years and used to be a staple in my table decor until we refinished the table earlier this year. Because it is silver I thought it added a touch of elegance to the table and would be perfect for the occasion.

The repetition of orange works works to unify the carnival glass and pumpkins scattered along the table. For the shower I plan to fill the plates and bowls with fruit and cheese making them easily accessible by being in the center of the table.

One of the things I love most about our Casfina everyday dishes is they go well with so much and work for every season. Fall… for instance in this case. These are our everyday salad (or we don’t have much leftover but if I put it on a small plate no one will notice) plates. They work perfectly with all the orange on the table and should be the perfect size for some light (or heavy if anyone decides to bring chocolate) munchies.

The monogramed napkins are from our rehearsal dinner. I like to pull them out for special occasions. The wooden napkin ring brings a little bit of nature to the table and works well with the Fall theme.

The cute little glasses I picked up for a dollar a piece a couple of years ago at a church yard sale. I couldn’t pass up a great deal like that.

Since we have a chandelier above our dining room table I try to avoid making the centerpieces too tall. I don’t want it to look like I am trying to build the Tower of Babel up to the ceiling. This simple bowl filled with pumpkins remains low but has lots of color in for visual weight to really anchor the center piece to the table.

The table is all set and ready for the party. Now I just need to focus on the food. We don’t want the bride-to-be.. or the guests to go hungry!

What have you been transforming for Fall lately? Do you have any Fall dinner parties coming up? Which is your favorite part of party planning…. cooking or decorating? I’ll be honest mine is decorating. I don’t mind the cooking but I would much rather be eating.

Coloring the Table

With two weeks left until Easter and Spring officially under way, I decided to decorate my newly restored dining room table.

I have been itching to decorate it with chalk. I went back and forth on what to draw and finally decided on a table runner with the candle stand as the centerpiece. It was so much fun drawing on the table with chalk. It reminded me of my college days… the table was just a big blank canvas. Except for this was a way cheaper than most of my art projects!

The candle stand had been sitting in the center of the table for several days. Wednesday, I decided to sit down and have a little fun. As I was brainstorming, I just decided to start drawing blades of grass sprouting out of the center of the table. One thing led to another and the grass kept going to both ends of the table!

I didn’t get too heavy on the greenery since it is for a Spring table runner. The best part was if I messed up or wanted to change something I could just wipe it down and start over! Oh, if only everything in life could be that simple.

I couldn’t resist pulling out this turquoise pottery to set the table with. It is Crossroads pottery and is made in Mississippi.

And since I’m not used to having a table that’s not completely covered up I made some impromptu place mats by spreading a cloth napkin out. I just love the way they look with the pottery. They could use a little pressing though. Oops!

The candle holder floats around the house for all sorts of decorative displays. And while I am not much for bunny or egg displays, I couldn’t resist hanging these decorative eggs from the branches.

(If you look in the background, you might catch a glimpse of a bunny that did make it out for Easter and another look at the pom-poms over the mantel.)

Michael Luke and I shared a nice dinner (baked falafel, rice, and zucchini) at our Spring table last night.

So because of my new chalkboard table top, I was able to add a little Spring flair to our table for nothing! I think I am going to like this method of decorating! If turning your table top into a chalkboard is out of the question for you, I have seen chalkboard place mats.

What about you? Have you decorated your table for Easter or Spring yet? Do you have a set of dishes you like to use for Spring?

Oh, and for anyone who might be wondering how my week went, I was able to get the house cleaned. Somehow I managed to find a little more free time than I normally have. Good thing because we have family coming into town this weekend! Here’s to hoping the house stays this clean for more than a few days.
