Fall Harvest : Part OneSunday, November 29, 2009 Sunday Suppers
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.
