Hello again friends!
I am so happy today to share with you my Fall Tablescape.
2020 has been unusual, to say the least, and I am totally of the belief that the unexpected is expected at this point. Why play by the rules? Why do what we’ve always done?
Well, I’d like to say that my 2020 rebellion mantra is the reason for a pink-themed Fall Tablescape but it isn’t. I started this path with my thoughts of a velvet yarn pumpkin craft. I was hoping to make the yarn pumpkins in a peachy orange color to play off of the sherbet orange walls I have in my lunchroom.
I will share how I made these cute little pumpkins in the next post. But, back to the story…
Mary and I went to Hobby Lobby to pick up some velvet yarn and there wasn’t any orange or peach. There wasn’t any orange or peach in any kind of yarn. Do knitters have issues with orange? Or is it Hobby Lobby? Whoever the “powers that be” are in the yarn world, who excluded orange from their color palette, completely messed up my craft.
Mary liked the pink. Decision made. Fall Tablescape 2020 is pink in the Young house.
I needed a little creepy to go on my Fall Tablescape so I mixed in black and white accents and a few spiders.
I made these velvet black and white pumpkins last year. You can see how these were made in my post Spooky Halloween Tablescape with Velvet pumpkins.
Here’s a tip: Remove all stems from your live pumpkins each year and save them for future crafts. The stems on my velvet pumpkins are dried stems from the previous year lightly sprayed with rose gold spray paint.
I painted two pickle jars in black and white to serve as vases for fresh greenery. You can see how to paint your own buffalo check jar HERE.
I found the black and white chinoiserie (or French toile) vase at a yard sale and made it the centerpiece. (What says Autumn in the deep South more than French toile and pink pumpkins?) I made a simple arrangement of pink roses from the grocery store and greenery from the yard.
I cut out some leaves from a brown paper bag and placed them on the table along with fresh green leaves I picked in my yard just for more color.
My neighbor, Cindy, had some beautiful pink glassware that she let me borrow. I have some ppink depression glasses but couldn’t find them the day I shot the photos. Of course, I saw them in the basement a few days later.
I painted a white and black check pattern on a Dollar Tree pumpkin and attached a dried pumpkin stem to it with glue. A pink satin bow is tied on top.
Hanging on my sherbet orange wall is a white distressed frame with a pink yarn spider web. I did not show the step by step process, but it was very simple. I started by taping three strands of yarn across the back of the frame. I then tied a knot in the center and looped it around going over and under the taped yarn until it resembled a web. I finished by tying a second knot at the end.
And that, my friends, is a true 2020 Fall Tablescape!
Thank you so much for stopping by Mulch and Paint today! I hope that even if you don’t go out and “pink up” your holiday–you can at least feel the freedom to decorate as you want and whatever makes you smile.
Until next time, Happy Fall Y’all!!!
