First Fall Tablescape for 2015

Boy have I missed blogging about my table.  I have had a lot going on.  It has been stuff like remodeling and my nephew's  baptism and party.
I have missed visiting with you all.  I hope to have more time to spend with you.

The tablecloth is the inspiration for this table.  It is a gift from a dear friend, Gary at One Dish Dude.  Stop by his place to see some amazing tablescapes and recipes.
I enjoyed working on this table.  There were other Fiesta colors that would have also worked with this cloth.  I went with Plum, Paprika, Cinnabar, Heather and Sage. My favorite leaf glasses from Dollar Tree and Tiara glassess from Goodwill are on the table. The dessert glasses belonged to my mom.  The napkins and rings were also gifts from another friend.
I hope to post again soon.  Thank you for stopping by.

National Pink Flamingo Day

This day is new to me but I was happy to participate. So I brought out the Fiesta in Flamingo dishes along with my figurines and salt & pepper shakers.

Hope you enjoyed your visit!

Purple Fall Table Challenge

I was excited when Cuisine Kathleen challenged us to a purple Fall tablescape. I can't wait to see what others have created.
As I was taking pictures, I thought of other things I could have used or thought about adding another color. In the end I left it as is. I am pretty happy with the way it turned out.  Do you ever second guess your table?
I used Fiesta in Plum and White.  My owl was black but I felt he needed a change so he got a new coat of spray paint.

 The purple pumpkins and the votive holders are new.  I was tempted to get four pumpkins
to put on each place setting but I resisted.  The napkin rings below were found at a local shop that sells all types of items.  I haven't been able to go this year to see what they had for Fall.  I really tried not to add new items this year.

Here is the full place setting.  I know the Plum looks darker and may even look black or brown on your screen. It is hard color to photograph.

The squirrel below is what made me choose white.  I knew I wanted him on the table.

I had fun creating this table.  The challenges from Cuisine Kathleen help inspire me.  Be sure to stop by her blog to see what she and others have created.
