Aqua and Gold Fall Table

Posted by nana2010 (My Page) on

Lately I've seen Fall tablescapes using aqua/turquoise. Aqua is one of my all time favorite colors, so
I decided to use it on this table. I tied something different this time, placing the place settings diagonally
I don't think I'll do that again.

The placemats are from Dollar General, and the napkin rings are from Pier One.
My DD picked up the Acorns at a park near her home.
I had everything else, except the faux Mums.
I bought a bunch of real ones but they didn't hold up.

The tc is darker in real life and I painted the little pumpkins.

Although aqua is seen mostly in Spring and Summer I think it works well for Fall too.

I love the aqua and gold together Nana! You are right, aqua works well with every season. I may have to incorporate it into a winter table myself! I love the look of how you layered your plates too. Very pretty table Nana!


RE: Aqua and Gold Fall Table

Your table turned out very nicely! Love your placemats, your plates and all of your table decor! The aqua seems to work just fine with your gold....TFS!

RE: Aqua and Gold Fall Table

I like the mix of colors. It reminded me of autumn trees against a pale blue sky. BTW, I have those same napkin rings. :)

RE: Aqua and Gold Fall Table

I think the color combination looks quite elegant. The blue balances the bolder fall colors nicely.
Neat idea to do the setting on the diagonal to. Very pretty 'scape.

RE: Aqua and Gold Fall Table

Pretty tablesetting Nana!
Love the colors you put together and yes, Aqua and Gold are a nice mix for Autumn.
Love your placemats and I like how the leaves and acorns look scattered on the table.
BTW...I like the diagonal look of your setting too..I think it works well here.

RE: Aqua and Gold Fall Table

Nana, I would have never thought of using aqua for Fall decor....I learn something new here all the time! ;o)
Your placemats really enhance the whole setting with their mix of colors.

hugs, Karen

RE: Aqua and Gold Fall Table

Nana, you've come through again with another beautiful setting. I love seeing different colors and this combo is great together. Great job painting pumpkins to match. Love the votives, they have so many colors in them. The leaf dishes have such a neat shape.

I think the diagonal setting is a nice change. So nice of DD to pick acorns for you to use. Wish we had acorn trees around here. I'd love to be able to use real ones instead of buying faux.

I'm so glad you are here. There was a time I reset my table at least every other week. Now it only happens in my dreams.LOL You sure help keep our 'Holiday Forum' alive.


RE: Aqua and Gold Fall Table the color combo you chose! The aqua blues just remind me of the sky & your linens reflect that.

I think the corner-to-corner looks good in your pics...always fun to try something new...probably not a comfy place to sit tho. LOL!

Your leaves & pumpkins, dishes & placemats shout FALL! Don't ya love this time of the yr! TFS, nana! Jeanne

RE: Aqua and Gold Fall Table

Thank you all so much.

Kathe, does the tc look aqua on your monitor? I think it looks light blue on some.

Thanks Marlene, I'm glad you like my table.

Fun2b2bHere. I think the napkin rings are cute,
I don't shop at Pier One very often tho.

Jane, thank you I like the look of the table set diagonally too.
But like Jeanne said I don't think it would be comfy sitting there.LOL

Karen, I like the placemats too.
I bought them to use on a Thanksgiving table, they are reversible,
the other side is dark green so I hope to use them a few times.

Punk, my DD had fun collecting the acorns she had to make sure they were just right.
At least she didn't have to fight the squirrels for them.
Squirrels are brazen critters.

Jeanne, thank you. Once Fall is here I love the colors of the trees,
But I dread the thought shorter days and the long dreary winter ahead. (sigh)

Thank you all again!!
