Autumn Plaid Tablescape

With colder Autumn weather setting in, Pat decided to set a table that suits this time of year. She didn't want to use traditional Fall colors - so she chose blue, beige, and off white for a bit of fun.




Flatware is glossy "Image" by Spode
We found the unique napkin rings at Pier 1 three years ago
The dinnerware - "Martillo Almond" - also came from Pier 1 but many years earlier
Pat used a "Perwinkle" Fiesta(ware) chop plate for one of the chargers
Another favorite charger - made from Mango wood - from World Market

Simple, large glassware - this time from the Dollar Tree

For the centerpiece, Pat filled a larger wooden bowl with greenery and assorted pumpkins

Halloween Tablescape

Pat wanted to set at least one table for the Halloween season - I'm not a big fan of this time of year so it really didn't thrill me, but I must admit I do like the finished table. It's a lot of fun and we need some of that right now......


The centerpiece sits on black tulle

Flatware is Kate Spade "All in Good Taste" by Lenox
A resin skeleton hand holds a small black luncheon napkin
The salad plate is "Spice Route Sesame" from Pier 1 
Pat used a lighter dinner plate - this time "Spice Route Salt" from Pier 1
The charger is black porcelain "Color Spectrum" by Mikasa

Pat used the same glassware as last week because the straight side of the glass went with the flatware

Pat took the same "hand" as the napkin ring and turned it into a votive holder
The "spells book" was a great find at Pier 1 three years ago - on the sale shelf for 75% off. Pat raised it slightly by using glass blocks covered in black material topped with a couple yards of black tulle
We found these neat candle holders at TJMaxx three or four years ago

Just a reminder........
One last look from the other end of the table
