Third Fall Tablescape, 2017, Pumpkins and Fox

I cannot believe I was able to create another Fall table for this week. I have been so busy babysitting grandkids in Tampa because my daughters and their hubbies had to attend a fund raising event for Neuroblastoma cure. And then we attended the 6th Annual Fall Stampede the following day, which is another fund raising for childhood cancer, followed by a trip to a Family Fall Festival Beating Childhood Cancer. It's been a busy weekend indeed!

 For this table, I used a lot of various pumpkins and squash for a centerpiece and placed them in a big rustic wooden bowl of which I added a deer antler, given to me by my son years ago, my son who is a hunter. I could not find my plain orange dinner plates so I just used some fall colored patterned ones. I know the plain ones are in the garage but I was too lazy to dig.






 I made the settings for the heads of the table slightly different using yellow dinner plates and fox salad plates. I just really wanted to use these fox plates.

I used dark colored bamboo set of flatware. I have the lighter ones too but I think this set looks better for this tablescape.










I love this table runner.


For tea, I used this all white tea set with maple leaves. I bought them from Homegoods in Baton Rouge a few years ago,



Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope it is cooler in your neck of the woods. We are not quite so lucky yet here in Florida.
Thank you to the hostesses hosting the parties this week

2nd Fall Table using Transferware Plates, 2017

Hello everyone! I hope you are enjoying this cooler Fall weather. It's still pretty warm here in Florida but it gets a little cooler after a rain.

 Although I am still pretty busy cleaning up after the hurricane, I made time to create my second Fall tablescape. This time I decided to use brown transferware for the plates.
The table cloth is by April Cornell.





For the dinner plates, I used Johnson Bros, Historic America series in "Massachusettes" pattern.

For the salad plates, I mixed and matched them, 4 are from the Historic America series, 2 Royal Staffordshire bowls and 2 acorn shaped plates.

I picked some santan flowers (also known as ixora) from our garden to use as part of my centerpiece. I surrounded the vase with chicken S & P shakers, some votive candle holders and a squirrel.



The napkin rings used are a wooden brown acorn and 2 green ceramic veggies, an asparagus and an artichoke alternating one another.

I bought the square beaded placemats from a thrift shop in Utah.
The bone flatware are from Horchow.



A pineapple S& P shakers given to me by my stepdaughter.


The whole house is decorated for Fall too. I just want to show you a few pictures.





For tea, I took out the brown transferware tea set to blend with the dinnerware. I dug out my lighted amber tree from the garage. I bought it from Kirkland's many years ago when we still lived in Natchez, MS.


And there it is, another fall table. I hope you like it. Thank you so much for your visit and thanks to all the hostesses throwing all these fun memes that I am joining.
