Simple and elegant autumn
with a gathered bouquet and a few pumpkins.
I was playing in the woods with a few fun autumn elements
and decided to set a table full of simple autumn charm.
With a gathered bouquet full of seasonal goodness- and a stacked chocolate cake topped with blueberries.
This started out with a few clippings from the yard- and as I walked through looking for a bit of seasonal color- I found a few branches covered in oak leaves that had fallen off
and a few red leaf branches -that were perfect for tucking into the arrangement.
(I will share more on how it came together in a separate post.)
On the table- vintage mismatched china,
blush linens and seasonal fruit- apples and figs-create a warm inviting centerpiece.
A few brass candlesticks and candles are all that was needed to light up this small table
and something to note- real candles are not always needed- you can use faux miracle flame taper candles as well and not worry about flames out under the stars.
I love simplicity when it comes to tables- and as much as I adore matching patterns marching along down the table- sometimes mixing is even more beautiful.
These are vintage pieces that don’t really go together- and yet they do.
The cake… ahhh. the cake.
If you follow me on instagram- you know that there was a bit of an issue with this cake.
It was good that I got the photos I needed ahead of time.
The stemware is vintage thrift store variety- again- you don’t need expensive to create a beautiful setting.
These were about $1.00 each.
A copper pot for the flowers worked perfectly- and adds another layer of warmth to the table.
Such a simple and yet charming setting and table for enjoying dinner and an autumn evening out under the stars.
What do you think of this?
Happy Wednesday everyone.
