I thought I'd share a tablescape that I did a couple of weeks ago for a dinner party. At the time, it was before Halloween, and pretty far from Thanksgiving, so I didn't want to go with a lot of traditional fall colors. I wanted to do mostly creams and neutrals, while still having it feel like Fall.
I used a fig plate that had some soft greens and browns layering it with a cream plate and a cream charger.
White pumpkins made up the central centerpiece with small white pumpkins (my favorite!), pears and acorns scattered around. I love to use natural items like fruits or vegetables when I can.
I also added some serving pieces in vintage brown transferware that I already had.
I used a plain tan napkin because I was trying for that neutral thing, but if I wanted to change this up for Thanksgiving, I would just use a plaid or floral napkin, maybe with more of the browns and tans, to amp up the "Thanksgiving" flavor.
