Rose Gold Pumpkin Place Setting

Rose Gold Pumpkin Place Setting

Posted by DecoArt on Oct 1st 2015

Decorating for fall is one of my favorite things about this time of year.  I think it's because falls vibrant colors are the color pallet I naturally gravitate too, I love the rich hues, earth tones and all the textures.  Even though it is still nearly 100 degrees here in Texas I couldn't wait any longer to decorate my table for fall.  I decided to start with my dinning room and created beautiful Rose Gold Metallic Pumpkins for each place setting. 

This year I was inspired by the popular new Rose Gold trend and wanted to incorporate this softer more subtle metallic into my table setting. I recently stumbled on these fine cut glass rose gold goblets and knew they would be perfect for my fall place setting.  Thanks to my friends at DecoArt I was able to incorporate the rose gold metallic trend into the rest of my table setting with these darling pumpkins.

Items Needed:

  • Metallic Lustre - Rose Gold
  • Faux Pumpkins
  • Soft Cloth
  • Twine
  • Tags
  • Calligraphy Pen

Instructions:

Use a soft cloth or sponge to apply the Rose Gold Metallic Luster to the top part of the pumpkin.  The Metallic Lustre is formulated to be a soft paste, water-based metallic wax that buffs to a brilliant shine.  It features highly concentrated pigments and boasts an opaque coverage with only one coat.  Because it's a paste, it allows for more control during application than liquid paint.

Once you've rubbed the metallic wax on the pumpkin and have achieved the look you want use a clean part of the cloth and buff to a brilliant sheen.

I decided to attach tags to each pumpkin stem with twine.  You could use these as name tags or use words that remind and inspire you about fall.  I have always wanted to have beautiful handwriting and recently with the help of CreativeBug have been practicing the art of calligraphy.

It is by no means perfect, but I love having inspirational words like beautiful, glorious, splendid, brilliant, pleasant, gratitude written on my pumpkins tags.

I love this simple, beautiful table setting with its soft glowing copper rich color.  I can absolutely see why Rose Gold is becoming an increasingly popular trend in home decor and can't wait to see what else I can transform with my DecoArt Rose Gold Metallic Lustre.
