Thank you to Susan from BETWEEN NAPS ON THE PORCH for this enjoyable event. Sorry..but this is something that has brought out the best of Tablescapers...so what am I doing here? Ya got me! LOL
It's early..but I just thought I would practice a bit. My Fall things are not even unpacked..so I used the newer things I have just bought and what I had stored in the house.
Yep.they are blurry. To use the larger photo's you most definitely need a good camera..however...
...this will just have to do. Below is a sweet little pumpkin tea set from my daughter, Mary, when she first got married. She knows what pleases me and makes me smile...and she decorates like I do.
She did say I needed a bit of updating...and sort of suggested I use fresh flowers instead of silks..but..I won't. At best I will mix them. If I grew them..I would use them.
The placemats are from Pier 1 Imports. They are heavy felt pumpkins. I thought they were so cute. I also found the sweet Fall leaf napkins rings there. Usually I am too late..but this year...I started looking early!
The little metal haunted house is from Victoria Trading Post I think. It came with a light but I ended up using a tea candle. The other didn't show up.
I love my Blue Willow china with the orange placemats. This was fun to put together...and it seems that the Fall/Halloween things get used such a short time.
I will put the Halloween away until October but the rest stays out.
So...Tablescape Thursday...here I come! (Sorta. I'm beginning to understand that this sort of thing takes one heck of a lot of stuff..not to mention practice!) But it's so much fun!
I hope some of you come up with new Fall idea's for decorating. I am so ready for a change! It is 102 in Riverside, California right now.
Happy Tablescaping and lots of love!
