Glorious Autumn!

During the hot late summer, I was in downtown Savannah, Georgia. It is a city full of old trees, historic homes, and renovated buildings. When a new restaurant opens, many times, it is in an old refurbished house or building. What I noticed about many modern, new restaurants was that they always have reminders of the historic architecture of Savannah. Whether it was an old gilded mirror or an antique candelabra or table, the antique and the modern fit well together. This fall table setting was inspired by the lush trees of Savannah, the antiques, and the colorful flowers that bloom most of the year.

Although this table seems to have many colors, there are only four: green, orange, yellow, and red. The base colors are green and orange, with yellow and red layered overtop. There is a lot of texture on this table. The mugs are copper with etchings, and the flower box is made from reclaimed wood. The center arrangement has flowers that are very easy to find at grocery stores. It has various greenery, roses, Gerber daisies, and alstroemeria. There are also sunflowers, hypericum, Billy Balls, and zinnias. The napkin rings, which are candle rings, have the same colors as the flowers and were the color inspiration for this tablescape. And finally, the green hand-washable napkins are silk velvet (fabric source at the end of this post) and give this table a luxurious, old southern look.
