Lavender Blue always makes me think of the song with the same title….Lavender Blue.
The song was made popular in the early 60’s by Sammy Turner and then it was in the 2015 Cinderella sound track!
I loved watching Cinderella float about the ball room with her Prince Charming in that gorgeous blue ball gown.
And yes, the “dilly dilly” lyric has been in all the recordings.
Apparently it means like, “here here”.
I have always loved the color lavender and I have been noticing a lot of tablescapers have been using it in their tablescapes so…
Here is my Lavender blue tablescape and I say “Dilly Dilly”!!!
You have seen these beautiful waterford purple goblets here and the lavender purple salad plates here.
As I look back over my tablescapes, I have used a lot of lavender and purple pieces, I believe I favor me a bit of lavender.
And we are not talking about the lavender oils and flowers, another subject entirely.
But lets start with the centerpiece.
Building a Fall-themed centerpiece.
I used a two tier shelf and placed little white pumpkins, a few gourds, white flowers and a few lavender purple stems as well.
I draped a lavender tablecloth down the center to make it not so formal.
The wheat shafts were perfect for adding to the Fall elements.
Who does not love copper and mixing it with the lavender purple, gave me just the color combination I was looking for.
Each place setting started with a gold charger, topped with a white dinner plate and yet another white salad plate.
The purple salad plates became the holders of desserts.
Copper flatware sat atop Lavender purple linen napkins…and copper mules sat ready for a cool drink for the warm Autumn evening.
Metal candlesticks with a copper glow hold gold tapers.
When we lit the candles, it made such a pretty glimmer to the copper pieces on the table.
The Moscow Mules are simple to make and there are a variety of recipes out there.
This cooler version of a mule consists of apple cider, a few red hots, a pinch of ginger, a squeeze of lime, a slice of apple and a stick of cinnamon.
Of course you can spice it up with whatever you prefer, but this soothing cool drink was perfect for the Captain and me.
I really like a different variation to the usual oranges and yellows of Autumn tablescapes even though I have set a couple Fall tables already this year.
Do you like to mix it up a bit or stay with the more traditional colors?
What are your thoughts?
Have a Great Day, Dilly Dilly!

Your table is beautiful Kari. I am always drawn to purple as it’s my favorite color. I always think one day I will evolve into a different one but that never happens. That stemware is just gorgeous !
I know your love of purple Christine, and I do love the beautiful purple stemware…it is so delicate, I just had to have it when I saw it. Thanks for stopping by.

Very pretty Kari, people are starting to use purples more and more for fall, and I just love it! Your plates are so pretty and look lovely with the copper and gold!
thank you Jenna…I have been noticing lots of purple lately in all kinds of tablescapes.

Ohmygosh I love this! Purple was my mother’s color and as I’m getting older, I’m gravitating to it more, I think simply because it reminds me of her. Your soft lavender color combo with the copper it perfect for fall.
thank you Rita, Lavender lilacs have always bee my favorite spring flower…and I love it in a tablescape too.
