A Sunday Dinner Tablescape for Fall with Friends

A few weeks back we invited friends over for a Sunday dinner. It turned out to be an old fashioned, Italian feast!
  
I love an opportunity to set a pretty table....did you know?

So, the night before, I came up with this. Red, white and green with accents of black.

A mix of white ironstone and Pfaltzgraff dishes set for a gathering of six.

Tiny, white, pumpkins with initials painted on faux leaves for place tags were added where each person would sit... then given to take home as little fall gifts.




I managed to "fallify" our bay window, too!

I always like to add a li'l something to the chandy with a seasonal do...Christmas and Valentine's day are past favorites of mine. If you have time you could do a holiday chandelier search!

The following day I decided to give the pumpkin a bit of a lift. I did it by using an ironstone compote, turned upside down, with one of the luncheon plates as a colorful accent underneath.


I think that it made it a bit more impressive!
 The window decor, in case you missed it....it's here!

 Love, Hugs and Kisses,
JP
and Gucci, too!

Such a pretty and elegant table! The detail with the little initialed pumpkins is just perfect, the black is so unique and adds just the right pop.
Love it!
