Fall Dinner Party for Ten

 

 This past weekend, we invited 4 other couples and hosted a fall dinner party for 10.

Outside, it was a miserable, rainy evening but inside, the bold autumnal colours on the table provided a warm glow and a cozy feeling.
 
 
The tablescape began with a 5-hurricane-vase-centerpiece running down the length of the table.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I kept the place settings fairly simple and didn't layer a lot of plates to start with as we had many courses of food served on a variety of dishes.
 
 
 
Each guest had a menu card placed on their charger.
 
 
 
First course consisted of a trio of appetizers
 
 
 
These pumpkin tureens held...
 
no, not pumpkin... but tomato soup!
 
The pictures I took of the salad and entrée courses didn't turn out at all but I did get this pic of one of the desserts I served.
 
 
Take-home favours were "pumpkin" Lindor chocolates.
 
 
 
The sideboard was decorated with a fall theme to accent the tablescape.
 
 
The lamps are a new purchase from Red Apple on sale for $24.99 ea.  I had been trying to find some that complimented the shape of our chandelier and thought these did the trick and loved the price!
 
 
It was a very cozy, enjoyable evening spent with friends catching up and having lots of laughs.
 
 
And it seems it was the perfect timing since I can now join the Fall Tablescape Party happening over at Centsational Girl.
 Be sure to check it out!

Gorgeous, you always set a sensational table. Love your use of light with the hurricanes, great reflections. The entire centerpiece is so warm with your fall colors. You are quite the cook too, your food looks delish, I love tomato soup. Now on to the lamps, you are right, they are the perfect shape to accompany compliment your chandelier. Beautiful table.
