Welcome to Panoply and almost fall! Are you ready for fall?! It's "Game On" for me today, as in a game on fall tablescape.
Today I am hosting a bevy of bloggers who are all excited to share their ideas for fall tablescaping in a Welcome Fall Tablescape Blog Hop. Be sure to see the complete list near the end of this post and visit each one. You will be thoroughly entertained and inspired!
I set my Welcome Fall: Game On Tablescape! with an eye on transitioning toward fall decor in our home. While the title may have led you to think it would be a football themed tablescape, the play on words was intentional, I must admit. I love a mix of masculine and feminine touches in my decor, and this table is all that. I've mentioned before my tablescapes become part of my decor until put into service.
Besides the tablescape, I've changed out the most prevalent wall art in the dining room as part of my seasonal decor.
The elements for this tablescape - typical of my style - are a mix of metals, vintage/new items, and masculine/feminine appeal.
Double napkins are newer: a navy linen with hemstitch trim over an abstract cotton floral printed one, trimmed in grosgrain navy ribbon. Drinkware for the occasion is a smokey blue glass and copper mug. Cheeky giraffe swizzle sticks are used as stirrers for the mugs.
Napkin rings are authentically African, safari animals carved of wood and hand-painted.
A primitive dough bowl is filled with scavenged pine cones, harvested lavender and deer sheds woven among a metal sphere and string of lights.
Next to the fireplace in the dining room, I arranged a vase with feathers, cotton bolls, and a fig tree branch with attached fruit.
I've loved incorporating more blue into my decor in this cottage home. Lighter blues as well as navy blue are classic for any season. Why I never used them much before is beyond me.
Now, for your pure entertainment, below is the list of bloggers who have prepared a Welcome Fall table for you. I encourage you to visit each one, as the ideas are as varied as the person presenting them.
My customary format for tablescaping is to list my sources used, both for my own future reference and for anyone's interest. I am not affiliated with any brands.
