“Think white,” said a blog friend Kathleen, who challenged her readers to come up with a fall tablescape done in white plus one color. Now for me that is hard since most everything I have is about color.
I thought I’d be passing on her challenge until I saw these pattypan squash on a roadside table. Not only did they get my attention because of their size, but they are, yep, white! They are the beginning of inspiration, and I happily left dollars in the jar funded by honesty.
The pattypans need company, so off to my favorite farm stand, Beth’s. There I found white pumpkins, eggplant and acorn squash. How perfect!
I collected a few twigs thinking they somehow would work into the naturalness of the setting that is taking shape in my head.
Now for the dishes. No all white here,
but perhaps Kathleen won’t mind if I cheat a little and hide the pattern with a clever napkin fold.
The black napkin actually provides a better background than the plate for the white pumpkin .
With the addition of glitzy and spooky black stems just gotten from TJ Maxx and black handled flatware from Maine’s favorite department store, Reny’s, the table is coming together.
All done except for finding some white votives. The table is simple, the style that best suits us, but I must confess to it having been more of a challenge than one might think.
Walking past it later in the day, I love how the late afternoon sun makes the white come alive with a golden radiance. I am looking forward to having tonight’s dinner here, but I doubt that it will be all white!
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
