Crysantamum centerpieceFall is here  along with her beautiful colors. Every year I get excited about holiday decorating and bringing touches of the outdoors inside. The problem is that when I selected my china it was spring and I choose a cool palette of dusty greens, light turquoise, silver, and pale blue.

I know some family’s love their Christmas china and that eliminates one holiday but what about Thanksgiving? I like to mix the colors up and add the seasonal in so that everything still flows with my decor and upholstery. I know there are those that say stay neutral and then what ever season you are in you can bring in those colors. Well that is just too easy and boring for me. I love color inside and out.Combining seasonal color with china

Think about fabric color schemes and how it is all in the composition. Colors can work together if you plan properly. Small pumpkin tea light sets the moodBy adding some stem ware in a seasonal color like this Falsgraf gold we have now introduced fall into the table setting so now we’re off to the races. Napkins, pumpkins, gourds, mums and feather balls start to bring the look together. Pumpkin tea light completes the place setting.
