Thanksgiving Table 2020

The leaves here are just finished falling, so I thought they would be a nice touch to add to this tablescape.

Place setting with a beautiful copper gilded charger.

The plates are from Hobby Lobby and are on a beautiful charger from Target. The napkins are doubled up with a plaid from Walmart and a nutmeg from World Market. I love plaid during this time of year and it was a bargain find to get these nutmeg ones to match my plaid!

Centerpiece with real leaves and table scatter

The centerpiece has these beautiful red/brown/caramel candles with real pressed leaves and table scatter leaves as well.

Dragonfly Tablescape

Place setting

These adorable dragonfly napkin rings came Pier 1 (which sadly is going out of business) and went perfectly with the greens of the table. The blue accent in them added a pop of color as did the blue bead tablescatter.

Centerpiece with moss, benches, and white candles with dragonflies, of course!

I love how the light from the window shines in on the centerpiece candle and the rest of the table.

 

Patriotic

Independence Day

Independence Day Tablescape

This tablescape is a tribute to our July 4th celebrations! It is full of the patriotic colors we love and a little bit of whimsy for fun!

This table setting has red, white and blue galore! From the red napkins encircled by a blue star to an American flag silverware holder. The centerpiece includes little white lanterns with flags with table scatter to create some whimsy.

American Flag silverware holders

Here’s a close up of the American flag silverware holders. I’m sure there is an official name for them, but just being practical! The little stars that hold them together are just fasteners pushed through the material. The flags are 25 cent flags from the dollar store! I love how these turned out!

Patriotic Lanterns

Here is a close up of the little lanterns and table scatter. I love the color the table scatter adds to the white tablecloth, and the lanterns are just a cute touch with the flags pushed in.

Whole table view

Here is the whole table again from an angle. I love how festive it is! Feel free to share your tablescapes with me and enjoy your 4th of July parties and celebrations!

Cinco de Mayo

Cinco 1The vibrant colors of Cinco de Mayo brighten this tablescape.  It is my first attempt at Cinco de Mayo and I like how it came out.

Cinco 2

The table settings include bright napkins and plates of different colors to stick with the theme of a fiesta party.

Cinco 3

This whimsical little pinata was so adorable that I had to include it on the table!

Cinco 5

You can’t have a Cinco de Mayo table without a sombrero!  Since the stores were all sold out, I had to make my own!

Fall Tablescape 2020

Fall is early this year with crisp mornings and warm afternoons. This change in weather prompted me to do an early Fall Tablescape. There will be more to come! I love the warm colors of fall and the bright leaves on the trees. Enjoy this tablescape to start off your Fall decor!

A view from above

This view from above is a perfect meld of all the fall colors thanks to the beautiful zinnias from our local farmer’s market.

Embroidered Leaf Napkins

The place setting has an embroidered napkin (I got a set of 4 at a garage sale – great find!) that continues the fall leaf theme, and fits beautifully with the salad plate fall leaves tree.

Leaf imprinted water goblets

These water goblets were a great find at the Dollar store. They fit perfectly with the theme of the table.

Leaves, birch candles and pumpkins add to the centerpiece collage

The centerpiece is the focus of the tablescape with it’s fall leaves encircling the the beautiful bouquet of zinnias! The pumpkins and birch candles add a nice touch to the display.
