Over the weekend, I picked up some gorgeous dark pink fall florals on clearance and today they’re serving as the inspiration for my colorful fall tablescape decor! It’s a bit of an untraditional color palette for fall or Thanksgiving, but I love how it all came out. Plus I got to use ginger jars, which always makes me happy.
If you’ve landed here from Pink Peppermint Design (who is also the marvelous host for this blog hop!), then welcome! My name is Monica, and I love all things chinoiserie, glam and beautiful.
For the fun “runner” down the center, I butted up the ends of two large kitchen tea towels. I think the pom pom edge really adds a fun, whimsical element.
To keep the casual and fun vibe, the flatware is all in a blue and white vessel rather than by each place setting.
I adore all things chinoiserie, which means a lot of blue and white, so to warm up the whole tablescape I added in this antique gold candelabra. The crystals also add a touch of sparkle, which is always classy on a table setting.
To break up all the traditional china and ginger jars, matte black snake print plates add some bold contrast and plays off the tablecloth (which is a rectangular tablecloth folded in half for my tiny round dining table).
The blue and white chargers are actually a DIY project that I’ll be posting on here on Wednesday. You will not believe how easy and affordable the project is. I recently did a tutorial for blue and white chinoiserie ornaments with this same pattern that is blowing up on Pinterest right now.
This year, I’m not getting to host Thanksgiving, but it is always fun to put together a tablescape and centerpiece to have a lovely table that is always ready for company. Decorating a small dining room has its challenges, so I also incorporated colorful decor on my black and gold etagere that recently got moved into this space from the living room.
I incorporated more of my growing Imperial Leaf china collection, and I hope to snag a set of dinner plates soon.
The colorful fall tablescape really brings all the elements of my small dining space together, and I highly encourage you to NOT be afraid of bold, dramatic decor in your small spaces.
And the angle of the fall centerpiece from the patio is equally lovely and colorful!
Colorful, glam, and classic chinoiserie elements come together for mega style in my non-traditional fall and Thanksgiving tablescape! I now hand you over to my friend Jennifer from Dimples and Tangles who has a WHOLE SET of this china…lucky girl! Her home is always bright, colorful and filled with pattern, so you’re in for a real treat!
