Fall fête

Nature tops the table in this sumptuous autumn spread


The crisp, cool days of fall call for sensational celebrations. Beautiful greens, grays and whites play a big role in this scene—forget the typical orange, red and yellow combinations. Simple and true hues from the outdoors can inspire any table setting. Pair with copper mugs, wooden chargers, antique bottles and pheasant feathers for a natural punch worthy of any indoor party.
