White Pumpkins and Warm Fall Tones

Last week I created my Centerpiece Harvest Basket and this week I dressed out the table to go with it!

My goal was to create a blend with the popular white look I'm seeing everywhere this year and the rich fall harvest 
tones of the season!  

Ozzie (formerly Mr. Owl) greets you!
He's a looker isn't he!!

My basket is a blend of rusty orange pumpkins, white pumpkins, gourds, faux leaves, berries and straw.

I played on the white pumpkins with my white dishes.
I chose these chargers because of their leaf pattern and with the rust napkins they help ground the warm fall tones!

 The white flatware balances the white plates...the stitched gold leaf patterned placemats add to the rich harvest tones!

A few adornments...and some amber colored drinkware

My cute bird on the acorn was a find at Hobby Lobby...the candle holder was from One King's Lane last winter. I like their rustic look which is ideal for these fall days.

Ozzie and I thank you for visiting! 

I hope you liked my blend of white and warm fall tones!  
 I'm joining Cuisine Kathleen for her


  1. Table looks beautiful, Liz. That owl, Ozzie, is the cutest. xo

  2. Such a lovely autumn tablescape! I love how you used white and the fall colors, so soft and pretty. You have a beautiful table! We did get lots of rain over the weekend, at times it would be sunny and than an hour or two later rain! Its been a wonderful summer here with hardly any mosquito's. Our summer was so dry. Have a good week!

  3. You have surrounded your perfectly fabulous centerpiece with all the right pieces!!!!!!! I like the way you carried the white from the pumpkins into the dishes. That really helps to break up the saturation of color, and it looks terrific! That was a BIG topic in my class last night. I think a lot of people are afraid to use lighter tones mixed with the deeper ones in their fall decor, but it really does work out. Funny...your owl, Ozzie" has eyes just like Ozzie Osbourne's back in the 70s! Bwahahahahahaha! :-) Gorgeous fall table, Liz!

  4. Pretty as a picture. Love the owl. Your centerpiece is so lovely...those napkins rings are beautiful. Boy, you are on a roll Liz. Looking good!

  5. The centerpiece is a work of art and the dishes certainly compliment it perfectly. I love the table. It's perfectly fall, stylish and elegant. xo marlis

  6. Ozzie is quite handsome and the white and browns are lovely! The charger plates are perfect and those napkins, love them! I love how this goes with your fabulous centerpiece! Hugs,Linda

  7. Ozzie is quite the looker!!! Your table is so pretty, Liz. I love your white handled flatware with your pretty plates.

  8. Hi Liz, I think Ozzie is such a cutie pie! And he is sitting in a perfect centerpiece--low enough for guests to see over and filled with all the colors and theme of the table. I love it. Linda

  9. Your table you created to go with your basket centerpiece is beautiful and the perfect complement! I love your whites paired with warm browns and rusts! Ozzie is adorable too :)

  10. oh my gosh i love all the texturey goodness here!

  11. White pumpkins, real or porcelain, are my favorites. They sure look great on your table.

  12. Success! I think you achieved a beautiful balance of white and those rich autumn tones!! Your table looks beautiful. I like those napkin rings!!

  13. Liz, this is so beautiful! Love, love, love your wonderful centerpiece with the white pumpkins and that cute owl. The napkin rings are gorgeous with your china...look like they were made for each other!

  14. WOW, Liz! This is definitely one of my favorite fall tables! So very elegant with the mix of elements, the more subdued but saturated colors (it's hard to type when I'm drooling), the white on white dishes and that Fabulous with a capital F centerpiece!!!

  15. Beautiful Liz! Love those napkin rings and the white pumpkins! Thanks for linking to Let's Dish!

  16. Such a beautiful tablescape! I love to mix white and autumn colors. Love the cute owl in your pretty centerpiece.

  17. Liz, I was going back thru some of your older posts. I don't know how I missed this one. This is such a pretty setting. I'm loving the white pumpkins, too, this year
