Our vintage Americana inspired table and matching whites and bluish grays in floral, were reminders that autumn is more than pumpkins and dahlias. The bouquets (by the uber talented Jessie@ Rountree Flowers) were made of of Calla Lilies, gray Lukadenron (the mini-pine cones), Lamb’s Ear and Dusty Miller Foliage: a token of a softer autumn foliage. Kale, feathers, Berried Ivy, and Anemones added deeper hues and pops of color and the vessels were our collection of vintage + tarnished teapots and pitchers.
We used a large wooden plank as a runner down the center of the table and scattered chestnuts and crochet covered votives for a touch of softness. Our menu was hand written by Bryn from Paperfinger and enclosed in a vintage frame. Place cards were zinc tags with rewritable surfaces (inscribed by Bryn as well) and tied with a strand of vintage fabric. The pale palette felt like the first frost and gray-white skies but our bundles of twigs, knits, chestnuts, and bursts of dark and color reminded us we weren’t quite in the thick of it yet. A perfect backdrop to a hearty Fall menu. We were very lucky to have Jillian from 100 Layer cake collaborate with us on the design and a wonderful group of talented artists listed below.
