Let’s take a walk in the woods. Are you a collector of nature? Would you come home with a pocket filled with acorns and tiny pinecones? Would you pick up a pretty feather? And would deer sheds or a fallen nest be treasures to you? Today’s Fall Woodland Tablescape is inspired by a walk in the woods on a late fall day.
Pulling an old worn utility table out of the garage and setting a table in the side yard adds to the natural, no fuss feel. This table was my grandmother’s. It’s the real thing, chippy and worn with years and years of use. Every time I use it I can almost see her working at it with her strong, rough but loving hands!
I found this exquisite china on a trip to Southhampton many years ago.
Made in France, Gien china has been produced for almost 200 years. “Sologne” is named after a region in France where wildlife is abundant.
The dinner plates have a rim of leaves, grasses, and feathers.
The soft subtle aqua in the dinnerware was reflected in plates with gently curved edges with soft brown antiquing.
A grapevine wreath becomes a charger and is reminiscent of the thickets and brambles in the woods.
The napkins are a little less subdues and the print is a little playful like the wind kicking up leaves.
A feather wreath acts as a napkin ring.
Organic bowls remind me of the speckle on an egg.
The centerpiece has is bits and pieces of organic material to look like it had been gathered from a walk in the woods. I put everything in a brown turned pedestal.
I think the contents of the centerpiece looks rather like a still life.
Nothing formal just a couple handfuls of nature spilled onto a pedestal!
A simple little fall woodland table!
