Autumn is officially here- and all of us here at the lodge couldn’t be more pleased! We aren’t ashamed to admit that we think the Timberlodge is the absolute perfect venue for the fall time. The wooden raw beams and posts, the warm intricate colors of the woven rug, and the exposed stonework on the building’s exterior- that’s right we said it- just perfect. And there’s just something about the crisp fresh air of autumn that gets me in the decorating mood- it must be the looming sensation that the holidays are just around the corner. So of course, with such a state of mind I went right to work to come up with the best fall table scape I could muster. One of my favorite ways to design is to purposefully contrast two completely opposing elements. Such a concept, I believe, has a pleasingly ironic effect. Take two opposing elements: rustic nature and golden elegance. For the rustic influence I decided to use a bark-covered round log, deer antlers, and mason jars. The feminine elegance was brought to life by spray-painting the mason jars and deer antlers shimmery gold.
Wanting to do an unusual but fitting color for fall, I choose Sea-Foam Green linen napkins for a whimsical pop of color (the sea-foam napkins are my favorite linen color as it perfectly picks up the small diamonds of mint in the carpet!)
Add some burlap, fresh cut hydrangeas, and gold chargers (compliments of All Season Rental– aren’t they gorgeous!?!) and voilá- an abounding table- atypical yet appropriate for a fall wedding! Hope you enjoy!
