Fall into Autumn

What's It Wednesday #192


This year I fell into Autumn differently than I had in the past. I decided to balance the typical Autumn colors of brown, orange, and yellow with creams and whites.

The dining room table, that use to belong to my great-grandmother Helen, is very dark. Adding creams and silver made the table quite a bit more cheery.


The individual pumpkins for each place setting was a perfect find at Home Goods and the leaf napkins rings from Pier One Imports also brightened up the table.

Balancing the white candles with the three orange pumpkins kept the center piece from looking so dark. 


Michaels was practically giving pumpkins away. My kids had a blast calling themselves strategically placing them all over the house. The cream pumpkins are my new must haves. 


Did you see this napkin holder on my Fall Lunch Bunch post? They are my new Fall fave. I can't wait to find more of them next year. 

Now that the dining table is ready, I can finish my meal planning for Thanksgiving. My family has never been fans of turkey, so we will be having all of our favorite seafood such as conch, crabs, fish, shrimp, mussels, lobster, and oysters. 

I am looking for some delicious side dishes to add to the menu. I hope you can help me out! What will your family be feasting on this Thanksgiving?

What beautiful table settings!! Makes me want to make a turkey and all the trimmings after all. :-)

I love the dark wood more and more the older I get. You have your table looking so pretty! Can I come over and eat with your family?! It doesn't sound any better than that!

Your table is very pretty- and I love that new napkin holder. I mix the creamy whites with the fall colors for the same reasons. Dark wood is beautiful but it absorbs things so you need a little help to show off the tableware. We're extremely traditional and will have a turkey dinner with the usual fixings like mashed potatoes, gravy, sweet potato casserole, dinner rolls and green bean casserole, pumpkin pie, etc,. My group doesn't like to move too far from the usual so we stick to the same routine. Bottom line is being together though and celebrating Thanksgiving. Thanks for hosting!

I adore your choice of table setting this year. Such unique napkins rings!!! What are the leaf parts intended for?

Those cream pumpkins are perfect for keeping out all year. I'm going to scour the store racks for some. Your dinner menu sounds scrumptious! And fun!

Thank you hosting another beautiful week.

gorgeous details on your fall table. I think I need to take a few cues from you when I set my Christmas table this year.

I happen to love dark woods with whites and silvers, I always wanted the dark espresso wood flooring white walls and white on white. Your table sis just that for me :)
Your meal at ThanksGiving sounds wonderful, and a side dish of cheddar garlic butter biscuits would go great with your lobster and crab, if you want to call it a side dish? :)

We will be having the traditional Turkey, for the left overs with sandwich makings, and stuffing, cranberry, and dill butter baby carrots and not sure what else yet! But I will be sure to share.

Thank you for the Autumn vignette, it really focuses on Giving of Thanks no matter what the festive meal is.

See you soon
