Autumn Alfresco

Enjoy the cool weather this fall in front of a stone fireplace in a scene that puts plenty of polish on rustic elements. Seasonal-favorite pumpkins add autumnal accents to both the dinner table and the stone fireplace. Instead of traditional orange, use a mix of white, green, and blue varieties to coordinate with the dinnerware, and reiterate the color scheme with several low vases of green hydrangea blossoms bearing a hint of blush pink. And just in case the evening turns a bit chilly, drape a cuddly throw over the back of a chair or two.
