This Fall Tablescape With Copper Accents was fun to create.
Thanksgiving 2019 we had about 20 people coming over. We have many copper items throughout our kitchen and dinning room. A custom hood, a handmade copper chandelier, a copper backsplash, etc. So, I wanted to create a Thanksgiving tablescape that matched our home.
I love Thanksgiving and because it makes me remember how much I am grateful for. To celebrate it, I like formal Thanksgiving tablescapes.
So, for the adult table, I used my white china set, my grandma’s silverware, and crystal goblets.
My husband and I made real copper napkin rings (tutorial here).
These napkin rings were made out of real copper wire and soldered together with lead-free solder.
I spray painted rose gold chargers to be copper-colored chargers. This took 3 thin layers of spray paint and leaving them with ample drying time. This is the paint I used.
I made these fall flower arrangements.
I have since made these fall flower arrangements prettier (tutorial here).
This is the more updated version of my fall flower arrangements…
When not used as centerpieces, I use them to decorate my home. In 2020, I used them on this Harvest mantel.
I love to use pomegranates as a fall time decoration. My grandparents have a few pomegranate trees on their southern home property. It’s so fun to pick and eat them when they are ripe which is during the fall season.
I couldn’t make it down there to pick them but my sister and her kids picked them and brought me up a bunch to decorate with and eat.
I put out a few of my copper canisters on the tabletop as well.
We have 4 six foot long folding tables that I pushed together. We also had the white folding chairs that went with as well.
I ironed four white tablecloths and draped them over the tables.
I bought the tablecloths, runners, and rose gold chargers earlier for another event. However, I got them at this website for an amazing deal: tableclothsfactory.com.
As mentioned, Tableclothsfactory did not have copper chargers. So I bought the rose gold chargers and spray painted them with 3 light coats of copper colored spray paint. It went very quickly.
I made the turkey and green bean casserole. My aunt did the mashed potatoes and gravy and the rest of my family members brought desserts, salads, casseroles, etc. It was a delicious feast! It was useful to have a lot of room for all of the food. Had I just used 2 tables instead of four, there would not have been room for all of the food we had.
I hope this Fall tablescape with copper accents helps you with ideas of how to decorate for your fall dinners as well.
