My color scheme for this fall table setting is not one of traditional fall colors. Instead, I went with a color palette of shades of blue. At the bottom of this post you will see that I am participating in a delightful long time fall tradition of a tablescape blog hop hosted by Rita of Panoply. I hope you will take a few moments to visit all of these lovely blogs.
There is no doubt that this is my favorite time of year!

My lovely poodle Lily had to take a seat at the middle of the table. For a finishing touch, I added one of the table runners as a tie around her neck. The soft blues of the satin table runner was a lovely base for my centerpiece.
In the coming weeks look for more fall tablescape ideas right here as I share more great ideas for styling your tables for the fall season.
The Place Settings:
I am always on the lookout for seasonal dishes with blue accents. Hobby Lobby had these salad plates that also feature an orange pumpkin and a white pumpkin. They had some with two blue pumpkins, but sadly those were out of stock when I was shopping. That is okay, some orange accent color works with this fall table decor.
The background color of the salad plates is a creamy off white, so I selected my Pioneer Woman cream handled flatware to complement my place settings.
Simple gray dinner plates picked up on the leaves and stems on the salad plates. Navy blue napkins were tucked in wooden napkin rings a nod to the natural beauty of the autumn season.
Blue wine glasses and clear crystal water glasses are complementary to the place settings.
These salad plates are a perfect example of the color combination I wanted to share and a softer look for the season.
My fall centerpiece is a collection of faux pumpkins. I gathered some of my pumpkins from last year and mixed paints to get the colors I wanted. I painted three of the larger pumpkins three different shades of blue.
I painted the smaller faux pumpkins in additional shades of cream and blue. I added three large blue glass jars for an additional different texture to the center of the table.
Each year I save the stems off of the real pumpkins I have during the fall and Thanksgiving. You can see how beautiful they make the faux pumpkins look. I will remove them from these and save them again to use again next year.
This is the palest of the blues.
I spotted this pheasant sculpture at Michael’s and picked it up right away. I have some Pottery Barn Thanksgiving dishes from years ago that feature a similar pheasant. Look for this to be featured with those plates again sometime soon. For this table, he helped carry through the creamy color.
My collection of pumpkins and glass jars going down the center of the table makes a beautiful centerpiece for my early autumn table.
