Simple Autumn Tablescape

Yippeeee!!! The electric power is back on in our area! After sitting in the dark and cold with gust of wind up to 70 miles per hour in some areas for what seemed like weeks (only days) due to the Northern California rolling safety power outage, having heat, hot water, telephones, and lights is a dream come true. You very quickly learn to appreciate little things. And kind thoughts to those who are still without electricity.

Anyway, back to tablescaping (and computer access)........We've been posting a lot of orange and green tablescapes lately - you know, the traditional colors of Autumn. Pat couldn't resist another one:
Pat loves traditional Fall colors - I think that this is the third table this season with these colors. 

The flatware was chosen not for the bee on the handle, but because of its shape - it adds some interest to the place setting.

Glassware is from the Dollar Tree - one of our very favorite purchases that we use a lot

Pat made an arrangement of pumpkins and squash in a wooden bowl for the centerpiece

From the other end of the table
Where it came from:
Faux Olive Green Leather Place Mats - from Bed, Bath and Beyond several year ago
Dinnerware - "Harvest Garden" from Pier 1 three or four years ago
Flatware - "Napoleon Bee" stainless by Wallace Silversmith from Horchow two or three years ago (but still available)
Bread and Butter Plate - Vintage "Old Ivory" Fiesta(ware) [1936-1951] by Homer Laughlin from
Individual Pumpkin Soup Tureen - from Pier 1 four or five years ago
Glassware - from the Dollar Tree (currently available)
Sage Green Napkins - from Tuesday Morning  three years ago
Burnt Orange Hemstitch Napkin - from TJMaxx two years ago
Pumpkin Napkin Ring - from Pier 1 years ago
Centerpiece Squash and Pumpkins - from Michael's (seasonally available)

  1. i'm so sorry you were affected by the power outages. Here on the other side of the country, I heard about them on the radio news and I know it is not pleasant to do without the things we take for granted! I hope the fires have not come near you. This is another beautiful fall tablescape - I do love the colors of fall.
