Black and White Fall Table Setting with a Farmhouse Look

Last week I added a black and orange plaid runner to my table and had planned on turning it into a complete table setting.  But as I brought out some pieces, I changed my mind and I ended up going black and white instead...

I recently bought this Food Network tablecloth at Kohl's.  The lantern is from Southern Living at Home (now Willow House).

It is a gorgeous fall day here in New Jersey.  I have the sliding door and all the windows open. Yes, that is Rosie way back there trying to make an appearance before the "Weekend Pupdate!"

Easy DIY Jute napkin ring
I made these napkin rings out of strips of jute and I wrapped them with some raffia. I think they give the table setting a bit of a rustic farmhouse look. You will see that jute again in an upcoming project. I am sure you are on the edge of your seat...

Black and White Table Set for Fall
To dress up the table a little, I added some of my favorite china to the mix.  This is Royal Doulton Provence Noir which is now discontinued and I can't find pieces anywhere!  Don't even get me started on that...

  6. Beautiful table setting. I really like the burlap and black mix. I have that same jute stuff with red stripe and have been wondering what I could do with it! As for your china situation, I recommend Replacements.com--excellent source and good customer service. As for Charleston, check out those shops and restaurants along the old river warehouse area with the statue of girl waiting for her captain to come home. Thanks for sharing and inspiring!

    1. Thank you! Regarding Replacements, I have tried them and I am on their list if pieces come in but I haven't had much luck with what I need. Oh well...Thanks again for the help!

  7. I really like your black & white tablescape. The black really adds a pop of contrast to the neutrals. Very pretty!

  8. Black and white tables are always classy and make a big statement! I love how you calmed down the drama of the black and white by adding neutral and natural details! The jute napkin rings are so creative and very organic!
    Your china is GORGEOUS!!!
    Lots of inspiration on your fabulous fall table!

  9. This looks great! I love black and white!!

  10. I love the black and white tablescape and especially the jute napkin rings! About Charleston, I ususally walk King Street starting north of the Francis Marion Hotel and going all the way to the residential area. Many of the shops are high dollar but provide excellent browsing. Also, I go across the bridge to Mount Pleasant and visit Southern Accents and the antique mall next door. Take a good pair of walkimg shoes because it is a great walking city!
