Mom 2 gave me the bedspread she replaced recently. She thought it would make a nice table-cloth. So, what did I do?
Yep. I took it from the car and went straight to the patio. Can I hear an Amen for cooler temperatures?
Mom 2 really has an eye for decorating, and I always loved seeing this spread in her bedroom of blue.
My immediate thought was that Painter Artist Mom’s (PAM’s) Meadow Breeze china by Syracuse would be a soothing companion.
PAM passed this china on to me – and now on to Spunky Daughter. In the process of setting this table, I realized a few pieces are lacking. (Ebay, here we come! It’s such a nice surprise to see much of this pattern for sale there.)
The trio of butternut squash matches the spread so well!
When my cousin gave me her squash, I had no idea how versatile they would be for many fall tables!
On a trip to Tuesday Morning, Mom 2 convinced me I needed these glasses for tablescapes. They really are perfect with her spread – as if she’d planned it all along!
A bright orange pumpkin adds a pop of color to the muted setting – and the reminder of fall, nearly forgotten by it all.
If you look closely at the bedspread tail, you see I reversed the cloth for the more muted tones of green, blue and mauve.
In spring, I’ll place the spread right-side-up for a fresh setting of spring flowers. 🙂
Speaking of flowers, I cut faded stems of hydrangea from beside the front porch.
There remains much color variation in the faded hydrangea blooms of fall!
Do you prefer decorating in muted tones or with striking contrasts of color? (I’m normally a contrast girl, myself. But, when the mood strikes, calm muted tones are just right!)
