Woodland Floral Tablescape


I love the cooler seasons- both fall and winter. I love the colors (and the lack thereof), the cozy sweaters and warm coats, the hot cider and cocoa, and of course, the memories around the dinner table. So when I decided to create a fall/winter tablescape, I wanted it to reflect the beauty of these seasons. To start off, I decided to work with a non-traditional color palette, choosing berry toned hues. I used deep purples, muted pinks and soft browns paired with bright golds to give life to this theme.

 

 

I started this tablescape by putting together the floral centerpiece. I used berry twigs and roses along with a few floral branches to give this an asymmetric look. You can read my post here for a tutorial on this. Then, I decided to create a hanging floral installation. I have always loved these unique, organic creations, and I wanted to bring the magic to my own dining room, so I attempted to create one. This is my first attempt, and I am quite happy with the result. I used the same type of florals as in my centerpiece to give coherence to the look. And as a finishing touch, I added fairy lights to the arrangement. You can read about it how I set this up here.

 

 

Now to detail how I set up the tablescape, I am going to start by talking about the table runner and centerpiece, and then I will talk about the individual place-settings. 

Now, once the layers of dishes were in place, I sandwiched it with pink and gold flatware . I also added a peach colored tealight candle holder as well as mini gold salt and pepper shakers. I also added placed two glasses, one for water and the other for juice/soda. Finally, I printed out menus and matching place-cards and added these to each setting. And with that, my woodland tablescape was complete.
