Crisp and Tailored Fall Tablescape

Pin It

please just pretend like you don't even see the cork in the wine bottle. I almost cried when I realized it was still in there after the photoshoot! Ugh!

Looking for Autumnal Tablescape Inspiration?

Are you starting to collect ideas for your Thanksgiving tablescape? We only have about a MONTH left!!!!! I hope this one done up by moi gets your wheels turning!


Many moons ago, my neighbor Ty Hanes and I collaborated on our dream tablescape for a late afternoon autumn al fresco soirée. Isn't he a fabulous floral designer? We implemented vintage with new, formal with casual––all while still keeping the overall feel pared down and welcoming. Appropriate for an easy and crisp approach to your fall dinner party or Thanksgiving day table, don't you think? 

Those dahlia's were SO gorgeous in person!! I LOVE fronds and poor Tybaby, I was just adamant about them being in there somewhere. I know he looked high and low to find them––he probably wanted to kill me, but would have never said peep! He's the best friend and neighbor a girl could have, truly. 

In the end, I'd say we were successful in pulling it all off! Plus we had so much fun working on it all together–––great memories!!


I have a GREAT giveaway coming up, so check back early next week!! You'll not want to miss it!



**Update! Check my most recent post to enter the blog giveaway, which is a stunning piece by Jill Tauzin Broussard titled "Waiting" It would look so good in your home!

First, I like in your profile how you relay the Louisiana accent in the way you say "pitter patter." (Pitta patta is so cool!!! I can just hear a lilting voice saying that now!:-) Your table is very pretty, and the floral centerpiece is absolutely lovely! As for the cork in the wine bottle, no big deal. When serving outdoors, I often pop that bad boy back on there after the wine has a chance to breathe to avoid the invasion of little flying critters looking to get sauced! Until they are paying me rent, they have no claim to my wine! :-) Have a Happy Halloween weekend!
