Autumn Tablescape

It's hard to believe it's Thursday again. Everyone's favourite day - Tablescape Thursday!!!

I set this table a while ago - I had bought this piece of fabric ready for a display at my sister's gift shop so I thought I'd use it for a tablescape first!! It has real autumn colours.

These green dinner plates are a little purchase I made - it is not my usual colour but I am trying to get out of my comfort zone occasionally!!

The napkins are a sale item from Target - about $1.00 each if I remember rightly!

Once agin I have used my everyday white dinnerware - it is amazing just how many different ways it can be used!  This flatware was also from Target and also on sale - I can't resist a bargain!

The end of my table was looking a little bare so I had a bit of a search around the house to see what I could come up with - the bird cage I recently bought for $10 and I think is going to get a spray paint (maybe white??) and the glasses, binoculars and old books all belonged to Mr FH's grandfather.  I use the stack of books as a door stop!

I love the build up of dirt  character on these old binoculars. I have no idea how old they would be but I'm guessing quite a bit older than me!!

What a great candle this is for Autumn - it is filled with gorgeous dried leaves. I wish I could claim to have made it with my own fair hands but no, I bought it ages ago. Isn't it so cool??

It's a cold old winter's day here today so I have been making cards - I hope to share them with you soon.

You'ved used such lovely colors in your tablescape. Fall is always my favorite season because of its deep, rich colors. Thanks for sharing and happy TT to you!

How pretty! Suzy I love your centerpiece and your flatware. So neat and travely looking. Perfect for fall. Thanks for stopping by.

What a great table -- and all inspired by that amazing fabric! I really love the little vignette you've arranged at the end of the table. I'm sure your husband enjoyed seeing his grandfather's keepsakes displayed that way! Great idea!

Oh, I do love fall! I like how you used the old items to add to the tablescape. That cloth is so unique and you did a great job choosing elements to go with it.

That is great looking fabric, such a graphic punch on the table! I think you set a very inviting table! I, too, love my white plates they are so versatile. I've been searching for a well priced set of the same flatware you have- love it!!
Have a great weekend. Stay warm!

I love the way you've combined a tablescape with a vignette. Fall colors (sorry, colours!) are generally my favorites. Happy Tablescape Thursday!

When I saw you have set a fall table, I was amazed the first moment. Then I realized, you life really far away from me, because we have summer now in Germany. Isn't that amazing that we can share our tablescapes around the world? I like this design of your tablecloth with the green plates and also the napkins and green glasses. Reminds me to the scandinavian style. Very nice.
