Cuisine Kathleen has issued a “White Fall” challenge. ONLY WHITE dishes, but ONE other accent for linens, glassware etc. This was fun, but very challenging. No problem with the white dishes, since they’re my everyday go to dishes.
The challenging part was the ONE other color. Not different shades of the other color, but one other color. My other color started with a burnt orange sheet that my husband suggested I buy when Walmart had their sale going on. And a tablescape was born:
I made a tablecloth & place mats from the sheet. And then cut a swatch from the left over fabric. (I never realized how many different shades of orange there are) I took that swatch everywhere with me. (I know, I can go overboard with this kind of project) Anytime I was in a store, I pulled out that swatch. I matched the candles, flowers, paint & ribbon.
I used the paint on a pumpkin for the centerpiece and on wooden leaves for the napkin rings:
Then I started to put it all together
I covered the burnt orange tablecloth with some white lace to break it up because I thought it might be a little much when using the matching place mats. Then came the white plates, napkins, candle holders, scatter & base of the centerpiece.
For the centerpiece, I used those matching flowers with some white flowers & white glitter baby breath. (It was harder than I thought to make a floral centerpiece without the greens!)
And naturally, I had to light the candles:
Hope you enjoyed my White & Orange Fall Tablescape. It was fun, challenging & I love the way it all came together. I can’t wait for Cuisine Kathleen’s next challenge.
Happy Creating everyone!
I’ll be joining:
