Tables for two have become the norm here this year, so for Autumn Jubilee (#AutumnJubilee2020), I have a festive fall tablescape for 2. Without being able to have friends over, it is more important than ever that the table be a welcoming and seasonal place for a meal. I try every year to use what I already have in new combinations, and I don’t think I’ve done this one before. It begins with the placemats. I made these before I began blogging. I used a couple of yards of a lovely gold leaf printed on a plaid base, and quilted the piece as a whole cloth. Then I cut it up into placemats and bound them.
The table is set with just two places, and some of my all time favorite dishes. The stack base is a brown charger, topped with burnt orange, ruffle edge dinner plates, and my Autumn leaves salad plates.
Gold napkins are held with brown beaded gold wire napkin rings. This is a table for every day of autumn, so everyday flatware is added.
I love these pumpkin bowls, and serve soup in them.
A basket with a leaf design handle anchors the centerpiece, offset to one side to take up the space of two place settings.
I surrounded the base with artificial leaf garland, and my crackle glass candle holders.
Inside, Dollar Tree pumpkins along with leaves and mums complete the arrangement.
On the side facing the den, dried corn gives some interest to the back side.
Glass mugs and individual salt and pepper shakers complete the settings. A bit of extra space in the center has a pumpkin plate.
We’ve enjoyed this tablescape all month. The gold and brown with rust accents are very traditional, and it pleases me this time of year.
Halloween isn’t going to be a part of our October this year, we never get trick or treaters anyway, and all our gatherings have canceled. But if you have plans for Boo-day, here’s a spooky tablescape for you – Halloween Tablescape with Lights.
And here is one from 2016 that is a happy Halloween Tablescape.
