Day 20 Fall Countdown

Day 20 of the countdown

The 25 days until fall is rolling along! Thanks for all your enthusiasm as I continue to post fallspiration. I love that we can all be crazy about the season together!

Day 20

All that glitters is gold…

I am in love with black and gold tablescapes presently. This is my take on a golden harvest table.

This is how this breaks down. First the linens. I used just a white cotton table cloth and a black cotton runner. The place settings are just gold glittered chargers with a basic white china and linen napkins. I love monograms, so of course, we had to include that. (Thanks, Amy!)

The leaves are craft leaves that you can pick up for 99 cents a pack at a craft store. I just spray-painted them metallic gold.

The pumpkins are the spray-painted the same.

The little votives are from the dollar store and sold in a four pack.

The creamy white roses add elegance. I kept all details gold including the vase which catches the light of the candles.

Have a great Labor Day!

I’ll be linking to this link party soon:

    Oh my goodness, this is BEAUTIFUL! And your photos are AMAZING! Do you do your own designing AND photography? If so, I think you are my idol because it all looks fabulous! 🙂

      Yes, I do. Thank you so much! I love working on designs and am slowly learning photography. I don’t have a flashy camera, but hope to get an upgraded one soon 🙂 Definitely a novice when it comes to taking photos. So glad you like it 🙂 xo Kristin

    The more I see of glittery, metallic, spray-painted squash, the more I want to make my own! Love this twist on traditional fall colors! And I agree with eversothrifty – your photos look amazing! I am still trying to get the hang of photography 🙂

      Thank you! I love all things metallic and shiny. You may sense a on-going theme when you read my blog. I hope to get a nice camera one of these days so I can really work on my photography 🙂 Kristin

    Very sophisticated, yet festive table setting! I love that it would complement the decor/color scheme in ANY house…since black and gold are neutrals that can combine with nearly any other color combination. And still so fallish and festive!

      Thank you, Kristin! I am really smitten with black and gold this year. I love how rich and full of contrast it is! I think I am going to do a spin on this for Thanksgiving, but add in some “feathery touches”. Thanks for popping by! xo Kristin
