I absolutely love setting my table for each season… and while I have a bit more fun in the summer with my mermaid themed tables I tend to reach for a more elegant rose gold look in the fall. Maybe it’s because I’m not a big fan of orange and green so the copper/rose gold color is my favorite go/to? Either way my bestie Rachel is here once more and taking the simple Copper Thanksgiving table she set for us last week and turning it into a beautiful sophisticated rose gold tablescape with my new pretty autumn decor.
Mainly the entire forest of little resin mushrooms I whipped up a few weeks ago… they’re so cute! I am literally obsessed with them.
Let’s get started!
- Blush Pink Dinner Plates
- Blush Pink Salad Plates
- Blush Cake Stands (in different sizes)
- Squirrel Salt & Pepper Shaker
- Recollections Pink Water Glasses
- Rose Gold Flatware
- Pink Napkins with Fringe
- Rose Gold Leaf Napkin Rings
- White Table Runner
- Rose Gold Resin Mushrooms
- Rose Gold Resin Mushroom Jars!
- Copper Chargers
Tip 1: Pick a Theme
They’ve been sitting in my drawer waiting allllll summer for a fall tablescape so they were going on the table!
While I typically pick one main piece as a jumping off point for today’s table we’re going with a theme… autumn. The mushrooms and leaves aren’t the same but they sure are similar. I also have 2 rose gold acorn jars that fit the theme and have the same metallic shine as the napkin holders so we’ll round out the group with those.
Acorns are definitely fall!
Tip 2: Use Multiple Textures when working with a Monochromatic Color Scheme
Once I started working on this table my usual goal of different colors and patterns went right out the window… we were working with pretty pinks and metallic rose golds.
It’s such a soft feminine look and I absolutely love it!
Of course, when you’re working with the same color over and over and over it can get a little boring. The best tip I ever learned for working with a monochromatic color scheme is to use multiple textures to show interest. So I picked chargers with dots around the edges to mirror the dots on our plates, fringed napkins instead of smooth, textured glasses with a pretty design instead of blank cups.
All the different textures help to create movement and interest… even though our colors want to blend together into one big blob of PINK.
Which isn’t actually a deal breaker for me *wink wink*.
Tip 3: Layer your Centerpiece
Last but not least let’s look at that centerpiece. I love, love, love all the different mushrooms. They’re sooo sweet BUT if we used one big cake stand and lined them up on the top it would be a lot less interesting than using tiered cake stands to create 3 different layers.
Little pieces can easily turn from a pretty collection to way too much, cluttered, a MESS.
We want them to read as one big piece (a forest) and not a bunch of little pieces. I grabbed two different cake stands at different heights and arranged all of the pieces so that you can see them from all the different angles. It should look good from every seat at the table!
I even tucked a few at the back so that the people sitting on the bench have a cute view.
I love how it turned out… a sweet, multi-tiered mushroom forest of rose gold autumn decor.
Since my bestie was visiting we were having fun playing with all the pretty tablescapes!
Of the 3 tables this one is definitely my favorite… but Rachel said she likes the other 2 better. Take a look and let me know which one you love down below!
