Pre-fall Tablescape


I'm joining Cuisine Kathleen's Let's Dish, and The Tablescaper, thanks for hosting! Click on their names for lots more inspiration!
I'm one of a few who are not posting fall or Halloween this early. Temps here in central FL have gone from 92, to 91! So no fall decor here yet! I'm holding off as long as possible since I get tired of fall decor over three months before Christmas decor.
I'm calling this a pre-fall tablescape! Inspiration for these colors started with these April Cornell napkins, purchased at TJ Maxx:
They look very nice with this green tablecloth (from Home Goods.) They are a little more green than the pictures show.
The clear napkin rings tie in with the clear goblets (from Dollar Tree!)
I call these green salad plates petal plates! I love using them and this is the first time I have paired them with these square cream colored dinner plates.

The centerpiece:

The centerpiece has deep rose hydrangeas, berries and cream colored yellow roses on a cream colored dish.

The green flowers have velvet petals, the others are silk.

I chose to place the napkins beside the plates so the green petal plates show up fully.
These colors aren't too summery, or fallish, just right to carry us into the fall season next month.
The green colors go nicely with the wineberry colored walls in our dining room!
I still love our oak furniture even though some may think it is outdated. I needed sturdy furniture for my big husband and big grandsons and this serves us well!

I also place two goblets on the left side, just to balance out the tablescape. Someone (anonymously) once left a comment telling me it was wrong to place the glasses on that side! Hey, how about our left handed guests, I have several left handed friends!

I hope you enjoyed still seeing these pretty colors!

Looks like you and your girls had a great trip to Charleston.

Your tablescape is beautiful! Our sone is left-handed. Always having the glass on the right side presents a problem for him.
