I am so excited to be joining a group of amazing bloggers all week for a beautiful Autumn Tablescape Blog Hop. Trust me, if you love a pretty table setting you are in for a treat!! I will have the full listing of participating blogs at the end of todays post.
So fall in Florida is pretty tricky for me…for several reasons:
- September and October are really, really hot here!
- It stays green here year round- no pretty change of colors and leaves.
- We aren’t big “Halloween” people.
- Fall colors like oranges and golds aren’t my favorite colors
All that said, I LOVE FALL, and I really love to live vicariously through other bloggers around the country with fall leaves and pumpkins and pretty fall decor, we just do fall a little differently here in Florida!
For my table setting this year, I chose to go with pretty soft sage greens and blues and greys. My centerpiece was a simple white pitcher filled with eucalyptus leaves, lambs ear, and juniper berries.
I chose a natural, nubby runner, woven chargers, and my hobknob footed goblets. I did a mix of sage green and blue grey napkins with my Starfish Cottage Etsy Shop’s Starfish and Oyster Shell Napkin Rings.
These simple napkin rings add a “touch of coastal” to any table, any season of the year!
I set the table in the kitchen to keep it casual- we are loving our new farmhouse style table from Ashley Furniture!
For a casual look, I have used mismatched black windsor dining chairs (all from Craigslist!!)
For another touch of “coastal” I added several seashell hurricane candle vases and a large piece of white coral.
I grouped the whole centerpiece on this fabulous wood tray with rope handle (from Target).
Here’s a view of the table looking into the Family Room and Master Bedroom (stop by tomorrow for more coastal style fall decor from all around the cottage- and another blog hop!!)
