Happy Fall Ya'll Dining Room
Have you noticed how script is all the rage these days? Script on pillows, script on wood signs, script on plates! When I saw these script plates, I thought they would be the perfect addition to my fall tablescape. What I am enjoying about this place setting is texture; burlap, silver, seagrass charger, poka dots, news print. It was missing something until I added the little pop of color under the script plate - I went hunting all over for neutral plaid plates and struck out. I decided to head to my scrapbook paper tablet of all sorts of delish neutral patterns. I knew I wanted a touch of color to tie into to the rest of the house. This blue damask pattern is subtle and was just what I was looking for! I should also mention that the print "bows" at the top of the place setting are pages from an old recipe book. The middle industrial ring is actually an old adjustable hose clamp!
I have provided some pictures for quick instructions on making these versatile paper liners. The main thing to watch is the size of the liner. After you trace the plate that you want to put a paper liner under, decide how much you want it to stick out beyond the plate, in this case, it is about an inch. You could make it bigger or smaller, you could cut it out with fancy scissors - so many variations on this concept!
Here is a picture that captures more of the tablescape. There is a large vintage looking cream heavy paper liner down the middle of the table.
There is a story behind it as well! Check this out! That's right 80's wallpaper. What drew me to it was the back - its so old, it has discoloration in a beautiful kind of way and aged edges! I thought it would be great for long rectangular tables for an event someday.
I purchased these cute little white washed chalk boards at Michaels and they can be found in several rooms - back to the concept I mentioned in my blog yesterday about having certain decorative items repeat through out all the fall decor in the house.
