A Fall Ladies' Luncheon...with a Color Twist!

A few weeks ago, my mom and I hosted a luncheon to welcome a friend of ours to our hometown. It was a small luncheon, but we wanted it to be really special.

We chose to use soft colors such as grey, brown, tan, and white to create a fall color palette with a twist. I wanted to subtly incorporate elements of fall, so I found small plastic pumpkins at Hobby Lobby and spray painted them in Krylon Satin in Nickel.

I then used old plastic chargers that we no longer liked and spray painted them in Krylon Gloss in Pewter Gray.

My grandmother’s light brown china was placed atop these plastic chargers…I loved the mix of materials. It was somewhat of a “high” and “low” look with the mixture of plastic and china. We used Mason jars for glasses and mismatched linens for napkins to create an informal look.

My mom found these amazing egg dishes at Goodwill for $1.00, and I cut bunches of carnations to add a pop of color to the table. Carnations often get a bad rap, but when cut down into bunches, they look gorgeous!
