EntertainingGrateful Harvest September 25, 2012I am so excited to share this collection with y’all. I know I mentioned showing you my front stoop yesterday, but I decided to show you the collections first since I’m using some of the items from it. I thought that would make a bit more sense. With this collection, we wanted something that was a bit more traditional in fall colors. Our other fall collection, “Enchanted Autumn,” was more modern and a fresh take on fall, so we wanted to make sure we had something for those who liked more traditional fall decor. To start, here’s a view or two of how the whole tablescape turned out. We are so inspired by fabric, especially vintage fabric. We found the fabric for the napkins first and they inspired the whole collection. To me, these are perfect for Thanksgiving. You’ll see by the title of this collection that we are intending this to be a Thanksgiving party or table setting. However, we never want to do anything too “themey” where you couldn’t use these items for other things. From these little floral napkins grew the rest of the line. For the table runner, we chose a chocolate brown burlap. We’re also offering a traditional tan burlap, but we loved the chocolate color with these napkins. For the napkin rings, we used a small grapevine wreath. We tied these handstamped placecards on the wreath with twine. We had to bring in a little rustic from our wood rounds shop. We used wood round chargers underneath the plates. I love the wood grain on the side of them. They’re probably my very favorite thing on the table. Also, from our wood rounds shop, we brought in these wood platforms. They can be used for displaying anything or serving food, but here we’ve shown them with candles. We left the bark on the outside of these and I like how it contrasts with the chargers. Those paired with pumpkins from the local farmer’s market make a happy centerpiece to me. In the wingbacks at each end, we put our orange buffalo check pillows. And the last big detail to show is the vintage sign that we made for this collection. I really love how it turned out. We did a layered background of turquoise and forest green to give it some age. So, why don’t y’all come on over for a little get together? The Etsy shop will be up and running shortly with all of these items! I’ll be back soon with Enchanted Autumn.
