White and Burgundy

Kathleen offered up a challenge in white table scaping several month ago.  I've been thinking about this and even asked Precious Daughter which accent color I should use to highlight the white setting.  She immediately said,  "Burgundy!"  At first I was skeptical. (I usually like to use burgundy with a more wintry 'scape.)  But the more I thought more about her suggestion, the more I warmed to the idea .. and the more burgundy I found! 
 

 
 
 

 

I decided to keep the center piece simple with this white pumpkin from Kirkland's on a white cake stand (slightly elevated with a transparent burgundy plate!).
 
 

 

I found these versatile burgundy napkins on sale at World Market!
 
 

 

 These pretty chargers were from Michael's. 
 
 

 

I found the leaf votive holders as well as the burgundy ramekins at our local Dollar General Store! 



 
 
The water glasses we've had since our wedding and the wine glasses were a thrift store find.  The white dishes are from Old Time Pottery MANY years ago.  I find I use these a lot for large dinner parties.  They can be dressed up in so many different colors, which is why I think Kathleen may have put forth her challenge! 
 
 
 
 
 
Be sure you visit the other sites participating in this challenge.  Their inspirations will get your creative juices flowing! 
 
Oh, the beauty of WHITE!

I love burgundy and white together. The chargers and the votive candle holders and the napkins are lovely together with the white dinner plates. The pierced pumpkin is a perfect centerpiece for this fall tablescape..... Candy

I hope this doesn't post twice Our power went off while I was leaving a comment. Burgundy was a great choice. I can't believe those pretty leaf votive holders and the ramekins came from $ General. What a perfect addition to your table, and I love that beautiful pumpkin centerpiece. laurie
