Fall Tablescape

This sneak peak gives the colors that this tablescape will have to bring us into Fall.

Here is an overview of the table and I love how the fall colors pop!

Here is the place setting with the embroidered napkins which add an elegant touch!

These fun fall water glasses came from the Dollar Store and complete the table setting so well!

Love this close up of the flowers!  They are so beautiful!

 

Halloween

Halloween

It’s that time of year again!  Time for candy and costumes!  I hope we get some kids at our door this year!

This is a simple tablescape which would be perfect if you had little kids to sit at the table.  Nothing too fancy and the lure of candy as well 🙂

Here’s the place setting which would be quite the temptation with candy corn right there in front of you!

What a perfect celebration of goodies in the middle of the table for after dinner!  Everyone can take their favorite candy!

Back to School

Back to School

 

It’s Back to School time for some of us and some of you are already back!  This was a fun tablescape to make using mini-chalkboards and Scrabble letters! The pencils are wrapped with rubber bands surrounding a vegetable can! With a candle placed on top!

As always, send me your tablescape ideas and we can add them in!

Patriotic

Happy Independence Day

IMG_5140

Happy July 4th!  Our red, white and blue tablescape is a celebration of our Independence Day!

IMG_5141

This table setting is a hodgepodge of  treasure finds from Pier 1, Target and Hobby Lobby!  Finding good deals and putting together a fun table is something I really enjoy!

The spheres matched with the centerpiece making a cohesive look.  The flags were the perfect touch for the napkin rings.

Here is an overhead view of the table.  Just a different look I thought we would try this time.

Summer

Turquoise Table

Turquoise Table 3

This simple summer tablescape pops with turquoise napkins and white plates!

Turquoise Table 4

The dragonfly napkins holders add a pop of green and the white applique glasses with gold rims are a favorite antique glass of my grandmothers.

Turquoise Table 5

These white cloudy plates with the glowing spheres set an elegant atmosphere for this simple scene.  The turquoise vase is a Fenton glass piece from a local antique shop!  I love the deep turquoise color!

 

Spring

Summer is Coming

IMG_5049

This little sunny table reminded me that Summer would come eventually up here in the North and it will be wonderful!

IMG_5050

The greens and yellows of this tablescape add a bright and airy feel to the dining room!

The top plates of this setting are called Pastoral by Taylor-Smith-Taylor and I love them for their picture of by-gone years of the farmer plowing his field with his horse.  (See close up next)

IMG_5047

These cute plates are reminiscent of a Currier & Ives scene.  They remind me of the Amish fields and houses I grew up seeing in Lancaster County.

Patriotic

Memorial Day

I’ve done this tablescape for other patriotic holidays, but this year I added a different place setting.  I just love the cut-out stars on the chargers!

July 4th Tablescape 2

Here is the original tablescape. I changed out the navy bowls for the navy plates.  The texture of the plates adds a nice touch to the place setting as well. (see pic 3) Memorial Day Tablescape 1Memorial Day Place Setting

The red circle placemats give texture to the setting as do the salad plates.  Found them at Pier 1 for a really great price! The chargers were also on sale and came in red and navy, so they fit perfectly!
