Today is one of those beautiful fall days! Perfect for setting an early fall table outside! The hydrangeas on our bushes flanking the front door looked so pretty I could not help cutting a few and using them along with green apples for a table!
I have some simple rules when setting a table. I’m using this table to share my tablescaping top three rules with you!
Every table should start with an idea or inspiration. For this table, I wanted to highlight GREEN APPLES! September is apple month and I think green apples are just so beautiful!
It just happened that my hydrangeas were taking on such a pretty fall look tinges with a bit of pink.
And I just had to use them with the green apples!
This is a great way to lead into the next StoneGable table setting rule…
KEEP A TIGHT COLOR PALETTE
A table with a tight color palette has a put together look! And keeping the colors simple on a table has become a signature look for a StoneGable table.
If you just remember to keep your colors tight you have a very good chance of setting a table with a cohesive and beautiful appearance!
This table is green and white and a natural color pulled from the placemats and baskets. And the table color, because it is not neutral also plays a part in its color palate too!
A STONEGABLE RULE ABOUT CENTERPIECES
This is so simple…
If your centerpiece is fancy or as that WOW factor feel then the place settings on the table should be simple. And vice versa!
This keeps a table from looking too over-the-top or to plain. It brings a sense of balance to a tablescape!
The hydrangea centerpiece was super easy to make and filled up the center of the table!
The secret to this centerpiece is layering. The hydrangeas on their own would not fill up the table and have enough visual weight.
But when they are put in a basket and the basket is filled with apples centerpiece magic happens!
Because the arrangement fills the center of the table each place setting is very very simple!
Just a hyacinth grass placemat, a square plate, a white linen napkin, and an apple!
When you follow these three easy StoneGable tablescaping rules and add your own personality and pretty things you can’t help but set a memorable table.
Now I hope you will visit Lidy at Edith And Evelyn! You are in for a treat!
