Now that you’ve seen what we cooked on the grill and learned how to create a floral centerpiece, here’s the finishing touch for our elegant fall cookout – the tablescape! Just like the gorgeous urn I used, these beautiful handmade plates are from Fortunata. I chose to layer white and gray, to match the tablecloth and let the flowers and napkins bring all the color to the table. The wide-striped tablecloth brings a neutral graphic to the table to highlight the organic shape of the plates, and I’m enamored with the metallic touch the copper flatware and bud vase add to the setting – it pulls in the warm colors of fallen leaves without taking the red and orange route.
No matter the occasion, it’s always memorable to create a special table to set the tone whenever you gather with friends or family. Although it may not be a huge flower arrangement as the centerpiece, each personal touch comes together to create a landscape for conversation and good cheer. Never be afraid to experiment and just have fun with it!
