Fall Blue Tablescape

This week's table is a combination of trying a different Autumn color and a bit of nostalgia. We wanted to do a Fall tablescape using blue as the primary color - it's unconventional (which appeals to Pat) and it is something new for us to try (which appeals to me.) And the best part - although many tablescapers are creating tables using wooden toolboxes lately, we are using our Dad's nearly 70 year old toolbox as the basis for the centerpiece. Neat.
The table - Pat started with a burlap runner

The toolbox is replete is lots of original paint splatters - I love it.  

The place setting - Pat used Autumn rust to accent the blue.

Flatware is Spode "Image."

Pat wrapped a white napkin around a matching rust charger

Glassware is a combination of a blue Pier 1 water goblet and blue Artland wine glass

The toolbox is filled with blue and rust colored silk hydrangea accented with beige flowers and tapers

From the other end of the table
Where it came from:
Burlap table runner - Michael's
Blue Dishware - "Blue Danube" (unknown maker) from our Mother's collection and Replacements (after a few earthquakes)
Rust colored Dishware - "Paprika" Fiesta by Homer Laughlin from Kohl's (the salad plates) and Replacements (the bread/butter plates)
Flatware - "Image" by Spode from Tuesday Morning
Water Glass - from Pier 1
Wine Glass - by Artland from Replacements
Silk Flowers and Tapers - Michael's

  1. Love your non-traditional fall table. It is wonderful you still have your dad's toolbox after so many years, it makes a great centerpiece filled with flowers.
    Have a fun week, ladies!
