Rustic Elegance Fall Table And A Giveaway

Today's Fall table features these fun rustic
pumpkins that I found last year at Target.  I had planned
on using them last year but didn't get around to it and
have loved the way the table turned out so much that I
have left it up for Thanksgiving decor.  I love the rustic look
they bring to the table.

These bejeweled place card holders add the elegance.

This table is set in the formal dining room.  You can see it from
the entry so it is fun to have a table set there for decoration.

I began with two sizes of my taupe colored plates.  The picture makes
them look white but they are a warm taupe that goes well
with the ceramic pumpkins on the table.

Of course our Fall fairies had to make an appearance.  They
are all over the house and the granddaughters were having
fun holding them and playing with them the other day.

She is the largest and definitely the favorite to hold.

I topped the rustic pumpkins with a little big of bronze and green
sheer ribbon to soften them.

The crocheted placemats in a soft sage add another textural element.

Sheer napkins with wooden rings combine the elements
of rusticity and elegance to grace the table.

I picked a fun font to make the place cards elegant.
The granddaughters had fun reading the names on the place cards.

The jeweled holders came in green, rust and gold.  These
were a fun Home Goods find.

My sage flatware finishes out the setting.

And sage bubbled goblets are perfect for all
of the lush Fall colors on the table.

I hope you enjoyed this Rustic Elegance Fall Table, but

Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.
