I'm joining in my first time ever for Susan's Tablescape Thursday over at Between Naps on the Porch. My table is not 'fancy' by any means. I own not one tablecloth. I heard some of you Gasp! Not only that, I don't even own any napkin rings. OH, ya'll SHUSH! *wink* A very simple Fall is in the air table.
My inspiration began with the tiny little pumpkins I found today at Real Deals Home Decor in town. Picked up three for $2.29 each! Tammy, one of the owners, is just a sweetheart. We chatted a bit and I told her about all the wonderful ladies blogs with home decor and tablescapes too.The table is set for two. As it was a joint effort to enjoy this fun tablescape with my teen daughter. A bit of ribbon from my studio runs down the middle. Added a pedestal I 'stole' from the living room for a centerpiece; topping it with Dollar Tree 'fake' leaves and another cute orange pumpkin from Real Deals. Fall leaf garland (also from the Dollar Tree) finishes off the base. The dishes are a mix of different 'finds'. While I was off work today; I also stopped in my favorite local 'junk' store and found the cute pumpkin dessert plates for $1.49 each. I purchased four. Then I made a stop in Ross and found the brown Laguna salad plates for $2.99 each. Placed them atop my white Goodwill dishes. You can read about that fantastic find here. The glasses are hand-me-downs from my Mom. Gold glass with a swirl design around the bottom. Silverware is just our every day stuff.
I added a bit of fall 'foliage' ala the Dollar Tree to the 'pub' chandelier over my table and a few tea candles from around the house to give us a dinner glow.
Remember my sewing machine table? Here it is decked out for Fall, beside my pub style kitchen table.
I had so much FUN putting all this together! My daughter just said, 'Mom, the table looks nice; the candlelight makes it REALLY pretty'. Ahhhh, all worth it! Hope you will stop in at Susan's blog and see all the other beautiful tablescapes the ladies created for this week.
