Welcome to Fall! I’m thrilled it’s finally officially here! Are you?
Y’all, I love the simplicity of black and white. Do you? I set a similar table two years ago during fall in Basic Black and White but without a pop of color like today’s table setting.
After pairing these black plates with the new (and cheap) clearance-shelf green chargers in last week’s Summer to Fall Table of Transition, I was consumed with visions of basic black and white with pops of green apple color, including real Granny Smith apples. I could hardly wait to put it all together.
Is it sick to get so giddy over setting a table? Ha!
This tablescape has the same serenity of black and white, but with a pop of one consistent color (a favorite color, no less), which brings me to, “Ahh…”.
PAM (Painter Artist Mom) gave me these mugs during her recent kitchen updates.
She emptied their cabinets for HBD (Handy Builder Dad) to repaint them, and she took the opportunity to lighten her contents a little. Thank you, PAM! 🙂
I’ve searched through my pictures for a “before” shot of their kitchen, but I came up empty. I plan to take photos on my next trip and show you what they did to update things. I drooled over their new back splash, and you’ll love it, too.
White roosters and hen surround cake stands stacked for height.
Topped with a Cabinet Knob Cloche, a green apple gets center attention.
All apples are aloft in one way or another. White cotton boles ground the cake stands on one side.
Roosters and hen stand their ground on the other.
I always like to give a view as if you’re seated at the table. The only things missing are the faces of those to be seated in the other chairs.
Who would you most like to dine with? Family? Friends? A dignitary?
Years ago, someone asked me who I would most like to meet if I could pick one person.
Jesus, of course.
That one was disqualified, so my second choice was Barbara Bush and her strand of pearls. Wouldn’t pearls look nice with the formality of black and white?
Since that time, we ushered in a new Bush First Lady, so if Mrs. Barbara is no longer travel-worthy, Mrs. Laura would do just fine! (No pearls required, of course.) Could she bring her two daughters? We have seating for four (wink).
The table skirt flows in the wind, giving movement to the table.
Do you prefer a pop of color added to basic black and white? What color is your favorite?
Who is the one person you’d most like to meet? I can’t wait to hear your answers!
I’m sharing at Tablescape Thursday. Join us for the fun!
