Femininity In Fall...Decor Inspiration

blush pink roses in a silver coffee pot

For the last few days I had the pleasure of spending time over on Sanibel Island, putting the last touches on a condo redesign and then taking some time to relax on the beach. But this post is about Fall decorating in a feminine style. Perhaps just a vignette...read on for some ideas

I did not bring my camera because frankly I needed a break. Image via iPhone...but can you say ahhhhh! Love Sanibel and have gone there hundreds of times over the years. Awesome place for the nature lover and there is no place quite the same...

Roses in silver...perfect for Fall and the colors can be deeper than the normal pale flowers I like to use.

I'm not a huge fan of the traditional oranges in my home.

These photos are from the archives of last year's tablescapes but not out of date and timeless with the polished silver pieces filled with pink florals.

The silver is elegant and dressy for entertaining and the pink roses and lisianthus soften up the rustic wood table in my dining area.

Vintage silver pitchers can often be found at thrift shops and yard sales and make beautiful vessels for arrangements. All of my silver and silver plate was purchased over time this way and inexpensively.

In this fall table setting I admittedly went a bit over the top as it was themed for a Marie Antoinette inspired dinner event. The tablecloth is actually a ruffled duvet from Shabby Chic Couture and I often use sheets and bedding in table dressing. It was pinned with a large safety pin and faux floral napkin ring. You could use perhaps a vintage floral or old French sheet if that's your preferred look or style.

A few pieces to ponder if you are having the girls over for an Autumn lunch and want to strut your feminine stuff for Fall.
