    Fall Table with Oaks and Acorns

    Fall Table with Oaks and Acorns

    I have gathered together some wonderful talented table stylists to share their interpretations of a Welcome Fall tablescape.  When you finish here, please take the time to visit the blogs listed at the bottom of this post.

    The chandelier still had some foliage on it from my Apple Tablescape, so I added additional oak leaves to continue the oak theme.  

    This tablescape is a reflection of the year we are living in.  Usual seasonal or holiday tables for me mean special dishes reflective of the occasion.  Alas, this blog has seen most of my themed dishes.  Since February, or maybe early March I haven’t been shopping at my regular haunts.  You know, Home Sense, Home Goods, At Home and more.  Now it was time for a new seasonal table, with no new dishes, what to do?

    This is my chance to show you how you can use any dishes to set a seasonal table.  Kate Spade Larabee Road Platinum Dot is the china I began collecting for our contemporary condominium in Ohio.  Since that is on the market, I brought this china to Florida.  White china with platinum dots might seem like the last choice for a fall table, but this worked!

    It was long past time to dig out this beautiful silver that has been handed down from my mother, and from her mother to her.  This is Wild Rose by International Silver.  It is such a joy to actually use it and not keep it tucked away.

    To coordinate with the silver on the china I dug out the pieces of silver I have.  A coffee pot, a water pitcher and a casserole dish were all filled with artificial oak and maple leaves.  There is the slightest hint of color as the leaves are only beginning to turn.

    Gray napkins were gathered over green ones to combine both of the colors featured on the table.  White satin ribbons serve as the napkin rings, each with a little faux oak leaf and cluster of acorns tucked inside. 

    Pumpkins are great for fall, but I really want to save pumpkins for Halloween and Thanksgiving.  The table runner I decided to use does have pumpkins on it, but they aren’t prominent and instead of orange, they are muted grays and beige.

    Stemware is simple for this table, clear glass wine goblets are complemented by Brookside by Marquis for Waterford sparkling water goblets.

    The table runner is decked out with silver pieces filled with faux oak leaves, acorns and pale maple leaves.

    2. Oh how I love your table runner Chloe! Such a wonderful jumping off point for your table to pair with your platinum dot dinnerware and your silver pieces for a softer take on fall. The leaves and acorns all marry beautifully with it! Thanks so much for your organizing efforts for this hop. So happy to have a virtual seat at your table again. ♥

      1. Thank you so much Mary! A different look for fall, but isn’t that what makes looking at all of the blogs a joy?

    3. Wow, Chloe, your table is stunning. Your room is so elegant and the table set for eight is so beautiful with those gorgeous candelabra and your chandelier all decorated is impressive.
      Your Kate Spade dot china worked beautifully with your fall accents. Great thinking.

      1. Thanks so much Bonnie! At first I felt really challenged about what dishes I was going to use, and suddenly, it all comes together!

    4. Beautiful table Chloe! It definitely has been a year of different hasn’t it! You have created such a cozy welcome to fall. I too have been staying out of the stores as much as possible. Just love your napkins, how you have layered them and then tied them up with a bundle of acorns and leaves! The way you have adorned your chandelier above the table is just stunning. The wild rose flatware is lovely, and compliment your table perfectly! Thank you again for hosting!

      1. Thank you so much Maureen. It was good to make me figure out a way to use the things I had on hand!

    5. This is a stunning interpretation of early fall Chloe, the colors are wonderful, hints of the deeper hues to come later. Using your Kate Spade Platinum Dot china is perfect and demonstrates how traditional china can be so versatile in table settings. I love love your decorated chandy and how you carried those elements out on your table and beautiful napkin treatments. Thank you so much for keeping us inspired and challenged with these tablescape hops!

      1. Thank you so much Jenna. With less shopping, it is all about finding creative ways to use the dishes I have on hand.

    6. Gorgeous! I love your whole concept Chloe! The leaves on your chandelier are perfect, and how nice to be able to use your family silver. The napkins are probably my favorite part though – I love the ribbon and leaves!

      Thanks so much for including me and for hosting this wonderful blog hop – I can’t wait to see everyone’s beautiful tables!

      1. Thanks so much Barbara! I save all of those ribbons with my napkins. They don’t take up nearly the space all of my napkin rings do! So happy to have you join us!

    7. What a beautiful table, Chloe! I love your theme and I love the way you styled the napkins – gorgeous! The colors are so perfect for fall and your whole dining room is stunning! Thanks so much for hosting this lovely hop!
      Cheers!
      Shelley

      1. Thanks so much Shelley! I do love Fall and it is so difficult to decide which way to go!

    8. Chloe, your early fall table is just gorgeous. The Kate Spade China looks perfect. I think you could make it work for any season. The silver that has been passed down from your grandmother and mother is so pretty, and I know you must treasure it. The chandelier adorned for the season makes such a statement and is the perfect finishing touch! Thanks so much for hosting this fun hop! I always look forward to it, and I am always inspired by everyone’s talent. Take care!

      1. Thanks so much Shannon. You know, I had no idea how much silver my mother had given me until I unpacked it all!

    9. Simply lovely, as usual, Chloe! I love your china! I just might have to be on the lookout for these platinum dots. Thanks so much for including me in this little party. It is an honor!

      1. I have china from early in our marriage that is no longer available, but when we built out our modern high rise condominium the traditional stuff just didn’t fit. This Kate Spade pattern is still available at Macy’s.

    10. Chloe, such a beautiful fall look. I adore the your chandelier dressed with leaves and acorns. I am a big believer for dressing chandys and also chairs. The runner fits in nicely with your Kate Spade Platinum dot China. Mixing patterns is so fun. The napkins look amazing paired together and the added ribbon and acorns and leaves. Your wood table is the perfect backdrop to display table. Always a pleasure to see your amazing talent.

      1. I know you always dress your chandelier so pretty! I enjoy setting a dressy table on our casual dining table. Contrast is fun.

    11. Chloe, I love your table especially your chandelier. It makes a huge statement for the season. I’m a huge acorn fan so your post caught my attention immediately.

      Having family silver is a treasure, isn’t it?

      Cindy

      1. Thank you so much Cindy! I love oaks and acorns, too! I know oaks don’t turn as pretty as maples, but they call to me! Yes, I had no idea how much silver my mother had given me. It turns out there are at least 12 place settings. Although there are plenty of specialty pieces, there are no soup spoons. Replacements has them, so I will add a few at a time.

    12. Chloe your acorn and oaks tablescape is so elegant. Your pretty tied napkins are simply lovely! Thanks for hosting another inspired hop! Pinned and sharing on IG–Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

    13. Chloe, this table is a true classic. I could’ve guessed that was Kate Spade china, contemporary yet traditionally stylish. It’s wonderful that you’re using your grandmother’s sterling! Love the candelabra (those type are often convertible). Satin ribbon and a touch of dried leaves….yin-yang, rustic-refined. I always love that mix. This table could serve various occasions between now and Christmas! Thank you for hosting us, organizing us, and extending the original invitation. It’s a joy to participate.

      1. Thank you so much Rita, and I am always happy to see and share what you have styled! Yes, my candelabra can be used as single candlesticks, too!

    14. I love what you did with the chandelier. It looks so festive. I like your polka dot plates too! You have so many great dishes. I’m jealous. Thanks for organizing the hop. It’s always so much fun to see all of the ideas. I learn something new every time.

      1. Oh Andrea, thank you! I had no idea that I would be incorporating my candelier into my tablescape decor when I bought it, and now I am so pleased that I selected the one I did!

    15. I am totally in love with the muted fall color palette of your table runner. Like you, I’m saving all the orange and it’s fellow fall colors until later. The polka dot plates are a welcome surprise and you made them work for this table. It’s so good to blog-hop with you again and thanks again for all you do.

      1. Thank you so much Sandra. I kept thinking I wanted to hold off on pumpkins toward Halloween and Thanksgiving!

    16. Chloe, I love this beautiful and elegant Fall tablescape. Even though the colors are not the typical Fall colors of burgundy, gold and orange, this tablescape has colors that are tranquil and luxurious and really is a classic! Your centerpiece and coordinating chandelier is so stunning. The calm colors of grey and greens and your lovely dinnerware pieces and opulent silver pieces takes it to the next exquisite level. It makes for beautiful, fine dining.

      1. Thank you so much Marsha! It was really a different look for fall, but was all things I had on hand!

    17. Chloe, this is one of my favorite tables that you have done. The elegance of the Kate Spade and your sterling silver is perfect! Adding only the hints of autumn leaves and acorns gives the idea of a barely rustic and high glam table setting. The chandelier is stunning! Thank you for organizing and hosting the blog hops, they are so much fun!

      1. Pam, that is so sweet of you! I can never decide on my favorite tables! They all have different things I love about them!

    18. Beautiful fall table, Chloe. I love the polka dot dishes and luscious napkin combination. It’s wonderful that you are using your mom’s beautiful silver. Thank you for hosting.

      1. Thanks so much Carol, I can’t believe it took me a couple of years to dig out the silver and use it!

    19. Chloe, You have created another statement table!! Mixing the multi functional and beautiful polka dot china with your rustic fall accents does show how versatile your Kate Spade pattern can be. You have paired it up beautifully with that gorgeous runner and all of the muted fall tones in the leaves and acorns. I love your napkin treatment, they are just so lovely all fanned out waiting for your guests. The chandelier is another wow factor!! very elegant!! Love it!! Thank you so much for hosting these hops, I know it is a ton of work – but we love doing them. Wishing you a wonderful fall season!

      1. Thank you so much Ann, I have really enjoyed this table, mixing the fine china and silver with rustic leaves.

    20. Your table looks amazing friend – you’re so great at this. Love the oaks and acorns. Reminds me of Minnesota where I grew up. We had an oak tree in our backyard that I climbed all of the time.

      1. Thank you Chas, you know it is so easy to do what you love! I would be more than happy to set a table and cook you a meal and you are welcome to organize my house!

    21. Chloe, I always look forward to your tablescapes, no matter the season. You are such a source of inspiration for me and so many others! Thank you for hosting these blog hops. I am always amazed at the talent and creativity of this group.

      Happy Fall!

    22. So many pieces of beauty you have put together for this beautiful table! Your guests would feel very special eating here.

    23. Linda Hickey says:

      Absolutely beautiful the way you decorated your table. Love what you did to your Chandelier. You always decorate so lovely.

      1. Thank you so much Linda, I get joy out of arranging things differently every season!

    24. Another gorgeous tablescape, Chloe! I’m crushing over those Kate Spade plates. I’m thrilled to feature you this week at Celebrate Your Story!

    25. Chloe! I love that chandelier and the way you have decorated it! Gorgeous! Everything is just beautiful.

      1. Thank you so much Debra. I had no idea when I selected that chandelier how handy the frame would be for decorating.
