Hi Something Turquoise readers, it’s Lauren from Undeclared Panache. It’s been a while since I’ve shared something beautiful with you, so today I definitely brought the pretty! Last week was the first day of fall, so to honor that I am sharing how to steal the style of a perfectly-curated table-top fit for your autumnal wedding, or even just a beautiful dinner party.

The tablescape base is perfectly set with the most beautiful purple-colored table linen. It’s not too violet and it’s not too baby-lilac, it’s the ideal balance of sophisticated, earthy lavender, and I found you a great resource below to achieve the look. The linens may set the base, but the florals are truly the icing on the cake of this table. The hints of orange and fuchsia in the poppies really make the entire table pop! Those, combined with the more traditional garden roses, the deep leafy greens and the texture of the lily of the valley make these arrangements the stunning masterpieces that they are.

While the florals may not be easily replicated by a novice, the marble fruit bowls have DIY written all over them. You could collect vintage footed marble bowls, use the resource above to buy, or use this DIY to cut the budget. Get the look by purchasing stock plain white footed or shallow bowls, then use this DIY marble painting technique from our friend Diane at In My Own Style to achieve the look.

Another money saving tip, brass candlesticks are the perfect thing to comb the thrift store or flea market for, or you can find already collected lots on Etsy, like this one.
