September feels a bit like a transitional month to me. There are still a fair number of warm days, but the breeze and chilly evenings whisper fall. I wanted to switch up my table centerpiece to reflect the changing of the seasons, but I'm not quite ready to put out pumpkins. So, here's what I came up with.
I've had this orange tray from One Kings Lane (similar here) for a while now. I haven't been sure how to use it since my original use for it didn't work out. As I was thinking about how to decorate for this summer-fall month, it seemed like the perfect fit. The color is so warm, and the gold bottom adds a touch of glamour.
We always have napkins on the table to grab easily, so I have a couple of different baskets I use to corral them in. This gold one is my personal favorite. From there, I added the little lotus bowl with the gold rim and the candlestick holder. I went with white candles so that it felt calm and mellow. I didn't want too much going on because I intend to add some pumpkins once October rolls around, which isn't too far off now.
How do you dress your table for this in-between season?
