My tablescape is an Informal Autumn Luncheon I hosted last year at our home in Mississippi. This is our table in the breakfast room and the food was served from the sideboard in the adjoining hearth room. Let's take a peek:
Pumpkin Soup Tureen Centerpiece
This informal tablescape was set with autumn-tone dinnerware and glassware (purchased several years ago from Stein Mart). The butternut squash soup was served at the table from the pumpkin soup tureen (a Homegoods find). The gold-tone flatware was a gift from my mother many years ago. Autumn-theme place cards, pumpkin napkin rings, and a menu card brought the tablescape together to create a relaxed, but festive fall setting. The spooned Southern caviar is a recipe that helps to Make it Southern. Yummy pumpkin pie and hot apple cider was served fireside in the hearth room.
