Not only was I surprised at the number of dish sets stashed in my kitchen, I was also a little shocked that until today, I’d posted 130 different tablescapes. No wonder I’ve bought so many dish sets! When I started publishing tablescape posts, I only had three sets. You know the ones…complete with dinners, salads, bowls, mugs, or cups and saucers – and sometimes matching serving pieces, too.
And, maybe I shouldn’t mention table-cloths. Oh, well…here goes. Do you have a favorite table-cloth that makes your settings stand out?
If you don’t, I highly recommend finding one. I didn’t know what I was missing!
I made the canning lid pumpkins before blog days, so I have no tutorial for them. Would you like one? I can make more! 🙂
It was a shocker to see how well this gray cloth looks in a room that has no gray decor…and looks nice with lots of tablescapes.
I bought the napkins at T. J. Maxx in late summer, expecting to use them with this gray table-cloth. You know I’m trying to only buy what I truly love, and these napkins do make my heart sing!
When I visited my stash, I found the pumpkin ramekins from last year’s clearance shelf (I think) at Wal-Mart. Gee, I should label things!
The green leaf on the pumpkin inspired the green dinner plate since I have no orange or yellow dinner plates for fall.
The napkins inspired the Dollar Tree charcoal stems and the bronze-ware tones, too.
This pumpkin holding the tiny votive was a gift from a dear friend years ago.
It rests on top of a paint can (turned upside-down) that was decorated by another friend. I use it in some way every year during fall. Who knew it would be so useful?
Yes, we still have butternut squash. Among other things, I made a butternut squash and kale lasagna last week. It wasn’t very good, but I did discover that Gruyère cheese is amazing! One fail out of three isn’t all that bad, I guess.
By the way, the leaf garland was on clearance last year at HobLob. Ha! Is your middle name clearance, too???
