If you hopped over visiting our gracious host Rita from Panoply, welcome! Wasn't her creative table setting fun? Last week I shared my Velvet Pumpkins and Milk Glass Autumn Mantel

Since the mantel is in my dining room, I decided to continue the same theme for a simple yet elegant tablescape.

I gathered an assortment of handmade velvet pumpkins to create a festive centerpiece, dressing them up with real stems and floral accents. I also added several DIY succulent pumpkins and a milk glass cake stand and vases.

For elegant plate stacks, I layered my vintage Noritake China and a whimsical pattern with gold leaves and tiny birds. Gold flatware and napkins with metallic threads complement the dishes.

Handmade place cards, fresh lamb's ear, and homemade vintage candles complete the table.

I took advantage of our hot, hot summer to sew more velvet pumpkins, and...

  1. Oh, how lovely! Your pumpkins are the star of this show and are so pretty. Another thing that caught my eye is the simple leaf beside your fork - how delicate and elegant! I would enjoy being a guest at your table anyday!

  2. Elegant for sure! The special touch of the single Lamb's Ear made me wish for my long gone Lamb's ear plantings. The next best thing I have in my herb garden is sage, which is of similar color, though not as large. Your various pumpkins are so pretty down the center of your table and you are right they co-ordinate beautifully with your mantel decor. Have a great and Blessed Autumn

  3. First of all, I love the shine on your table from the metal, plates, and pumpkins! You are so lucky that you have the mad skills to make the pumpkins. Last week I was visiting my favorite local nursery and they had several displays of Hot Skwash Pumpkins, and the prices were astronomical. Yours are just as pretty! I think it's fun that you have a mantel you can decorate to tie-in with your tablescapes. It compliments your table well.

  4. Cecelia, i love your softer side of autumn. The velvet pumpkins are elegant and add a special touch. I went down the velvet pumpkin rabbit hole years ago. They can be addictive. Your table details and added vignettes on the nearby mantel set a lovely spot for dining. Happy Autumn, my friend!

  5. Cecelia, I love your gorgeous hand-made pumpkins…they make a lovely centerpiece. You table is elegant as well as your mantel. The hand-made place cards are perfect for your table. I have purchased a few velvet pumpkins and love using them for autumn. It is always a treat to join you for a tablescape blog hop. Happy September!

  6. Very elegant Cecelia. I love your velvet pumpkins, they are so stylish. Like Sarah said, the velvet pumpkins can be addicted. The overhead shot is lovely, complete with candlelight. The plates are so pretty with the gold touches. A pleasure hopping along with you. Happy fall.

  7. Happy September, Cecilia! I love your handmade velvet pumpkins! What a lovely idea to use fresh Lamb's Ear and embellish the stems with flowers. NIce blog hopping again with you.

  8. So pretty Cecilia! I love your soft pastels and pretty velvet pumpkins on your fall table, especially those with roses! Your succulent pumpkins and fuzzy lamb's ear add a wonderful organic touch to your table. As always, it's a treat to join you at the table and hop with you. Happy September ♥

  9. Very lovely how the gold glows in the candlelight, Cecilia. I love the velvet pumpkins, and they are the perfect touch to the shiny golds of the plates, flatware and stemware. Those placecard holders are adorable! Thank you for your styling in this welcome fall tablescape blog hop! Happy September!

  10. Cecelia, I love your handmade velvet pumpkins. I really should try to make some. Topping them with blooms and leaves really elevated the look, as is seen in the overhead shot! I adore those whimsical plates with the tiny gold bird. Place cards are always a nice touch too. The simple sprig of lambs ear placed beside the flatware is such a simple touch, but really makes a difference. Dinner by candlelight in the autumn (and through the winter) is one of my favourite things about the season!

  12. Cecilia, boy are you talented! Those velvet pumpkins look professionally made and from an expensive gift shop. Such a lovely centerpiece display on your table and mantle, and a pretty, elegant color palette.

  13. I love the golden colors of your dishes and flatware, they are just so perfect for welcoming in the fall season! You have certainly been busy making those beautiful and lush velvet pumpkins! You can never go wrong with an overhead view! As I say, it is always worth the climb!

  14. So elegant and beautiful!!! Oh those plates with the delicate gold birds; amazing with the antique china!

  15. Cecilia, I found your table setting so soothing and quietly elegant. The velvets paired well with the gray and white runner. I'm a fan of Noritake china patterns and really liked the gold and white combination. The salad plate was a perfect pairing. Repeating the pumpkins on the mantle and table is a great choice. Happy Fall.

  18. C, oh, my, your table pulls at my love for beauty and eclectic mix of items! Those Nortikite plates, I want them now!!! The velvet pumpkins, and leaf card holder are also charming. I'm going to take a closer look at the wall hanging. I would really like to try my hand at that.
    Are those new chairs at the table? I can't recall seeing them before.
    Happy fall to you, sweet sister :)
    hugs,

  20. Cecilia, you have set such a beautiful, elegant table for fall. Your velvet pumpkins look wonderful with your gold accents in your dishes and flatware. Such a pretty table. I hope you have a happy fall๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿงก

  21. Simply elegant and casually elegant. The gold touches on the plates and in the flatware are lovely. The setting with the bistro-like runner and rustic table both offsets and adds to the elegance. I just love your collection of velvet pumpkins in unusual colors for pumpkins. You might have persuaded me to give them a try! Have a great weekend!
