Brown and White Tablescape/A Hint of Fall

I have just a hint of fall in my dining room this week with my Brown and White Tablescape
White mums and some white mini pumpkin gourds give a little glimpse of the season.
I loved the mix of brown tones in this paisley table cloth and started building from there.
I used an old decorative ladder as my runner.

I potted my mums in Longaberger canning style jars that I have had forever. 

These are the same willow charges I used in my last tablescape, but topped with crisp white plates this week.
 the sources for some of the items on this week's table:
Dinner and Salad Plates - Pier One
Chargers - Pottery Barn
Square Plate - Christmas Tree Shop
Napkins and Placemats - Home Goods
Table Cloth - Marshalls
Flatware - World Market

We are having a beautiful Fall day here, I hope you are having the same.
Thanks for stopping by.

  10. I love your tablescape! One of my favorite colors is brown so this tablescape is right down my alley! The ladder is such a nice touch!

  11. Oh I adore your ladder you used as your runner~ so creative! I love brown & white for easing into fall, especially sprinkled with white pumpkins!

  12. Wow, what a great centrepiece!!! I love the colours of your table. I have been going bright as we are coming into spring!

  13. L-O-V-E the ladder!!!!! What a really fresh idea for a runner!!! It adds a little rusticity, a bit of whimsy...it's just an all around great idea! The acorn medallions around the candlesticks are a nice fall touch, too. Subtle. Great idea to up-pot the mums and display the earthiness of the root ball. Very cool!!!
