Each year when fall (and then the holidays) roll around, I feel inspired to play with different color schemes. I love finding ways to incorporate traditional autumn vibes, in a unique way. This year, I decided to mix blush pink, mustard and amber to create a colorful tablescape!
This post is a part of our series with Everything But The House, an online estate sale resource. In my last post, I shared my tips for estate sale shopping online. It’s no secret that I love vintage—always have, always will! In today’s post, I wanted to share how incorporating vintage elements with a tight color scheme can be sophisticated and pulled together.
I purchased this wooden and ceramic dip set on EBTH. One of my favorite things to shop vintage for is serverware. As much as I love the new options that are available, there’s something extra special about using pieces at parties from decades past. Maybe it’s my inner Mad Men fan girl shining though, but parties are a time I like to rely heavily on vintage—both in my party prep and with my outfits.
I mixed some new pink and amber glassware from EBTH into my existing collection. These two colors play together so well. I used the glassware for both drinking glasses and vases for a floral centerpiece.
One of my favorite budget-friendly (and just plain fun) tricks is to make all my own floral arrangements. I almost never spend the extra money on pre-made bouquets. Instead, I go to a flower store where you can find a variety of individual blooms and I make my own. It’s so much fun. When I have time to do it, I love to spend the night before a party prepping arrangements and sipping a glass of wine with a good record playing. It’s pretty magical!
I added a handful of mini pumpkins to add to the festive feel of the table. Little touches add to the theme!
An all orange, red and brown color scheme can be lovely, but it can also be cheesy or maybe a little overdone (all a matter of personal taste, of course). Incorporating another color you love into a traditional color scheme is a great way to mix it up and personalize your table to match your home!
I’d love to hear about any fun ideas you have for either Thanksgiving, friendsgiving or autumn parties you are hosting this year! I LOVE this topic and I could seriously sketch out 100 table ideas … it’s so fun for me. Good thing the seasons keep changing and there are always more parties to host!
Thank you so much for reading! If you love this post—please pin some images! xx – Elsie
