Hello! I’m excited to be joining a group of stylish ladies that Cindy organized to provide inspiration for your Thanksgiving table and menu! I’m illustrating how I layer my table with vibrant fall colors of rust, yellow and pink, and texture with wicker placemats and glasses.
And I have a delicious recipe for you for an Autumn salad that also has texture and color! It includes arugula, apples, crispy prosciutto, toasted pecans, and pumpkin seeds.
Please check out my friends’ Fall ideas with their links at the end of the post.
Fall Leaves As A Secret Weapon
My inspiration came from colorful Fall leaves! The first thing I did was scatter them down the center of the table.
Round Rattan Placemats
These rattan placemats are a great way to start layering your table…all year round! If you are new here, we live in a 100-year-old high-rise apartment in San Francisco.
Adding White Plates, Rust Linen Napkins and Our Favorite Glasses
I didn’t buy anything new. I just like to mix up the combination each time I set the table.
Pink and Rust Flowers
These vibrant colored flowers were placed in a wicker pitcher for the centerpiece.
We love the cane glasses for every day as they are easy to grip and you don’t need a coaster for condensation.
It’s great to have these little votive candles handy…even for an everyday dinner.
And that’s how I set our table with vibrant fall colors!
