Cabbage Patch Table

Ivy & Elephants

This fall season I decided to take a different path with my tablescape.  Looking over the pumpkin selection which was where I had been headed the ornamental cabbages and kales caught my eye.   This tablescape couldn't have been much easier, I had a summer tablescape on this table click here.  I changed out the place mats from the black and white chevron pattern to my wicker and replaced the soup tureen centerpiece with a green pumpkin.  Then an ornamental cabbage was added to each of the small soup tureens that were already the topper for my white everyday dishes and a black and white dot print salad plates.

This table will be used for a small informal fall dinner I have scheduled later this month.  I added a touch of color to each setting with a black and white dot napkin that is a nod to the salad plates.

The pumpkin centerpiece had to be elevated for this table so I set it on a wire basket turned upside down and put all the lids from the small tureens under it.  This wasn't my best effort for a centerpiece and I may still work on it a little before my dinner party but for today I am happy with this.

Happy Fall to All.

I think it is just lovely just the way it is, Char! What a pretty table you have set there. I, too, went with the kale this year because it is so beautiful. Next year I am going to plant even more. xo Diana

I really love the individual tureens with the flowering cabbage. That is just lovely to me and worth a copycat.

(If I only had the tureens. Which I do not. Pout.)

BTW, it is very nice to see an update from you on my side board. I am just getting a chance to wheel around blogland. I hope your husband is still doing well!
