…the tablescape! It’s my version of a tablescape that I have been eyeing on Pottery Barn’s web site this fall. The stars are my little collection of mercury glass pumpkins picked up at Tuesday Morning and Costco for $10 to $13 each. Woo hoo! Waaay less than their Pottery Barn counterparts! Once again, my ruffled burlap table runner is anchoring the centerpiece. You can find a detailed tutorial here.
I am using my Chris Madden Felice plates…a favorite Goodwill find at $10 for a service for four…and my Gorham Octette pewter flatware and matching pewter napkin rings. An antiqued silver charger beneath the plates reflects the patina of the mercury glass pumpkins.
My simple leaf place cards are scattered near each plate. I chose this simple option from among the place card styles that I showed you in a previous post. Yes…Granny…that’s me! :-) I’m just waiting to hear the two youngest say it!
The glasses are simple wine glasses filled with a few faux acorns for now….really just for looks! lol Irish lead crystal glasses filled with sweet tea will replace them on Thanksgiving! What can I say? We live in the South!
I am using the same candle arrangement that I had in my previous tablescape…my version of the faux deer antler candlesticks that I have been seeing. Want them! Maybe they will go on sale. In the meantime, my version will have to do! I always use sheds…found in the woods after shedding season.
And here is the heart of the table…my centerpiece…mercury glass pumpkins with traditional mini-pumpkins and acorns scattered about. And…taa daa…my favorite new project! Ever since I saw the vintage wood platforms made from old bread boards on Pottery Barn’s web site, I have been plotting how to make one.
And here it is! I am going to give you all the details in my next post in case you want to make one, too. I will be able to use it all through out the holidays! I am so excited!
I added a vintage-y faded monogram to it, too! Love it! The best part…mine cost $5.00 compared to their $60! Woo hoo! Find a detailed tutorial here!
Here’s a final look at my tablescape. I am really enjoying the contrast of the traditional orange pumpkins with my blue and white transferware on the hutch. I seem to go back to that combination over and over this fall. I am really looking forward to Thanksgiving! It will be a small dinner with high chairs pulled up at each end, too. I can’t wait!
And just in case you are wondering where our co-host Baby Kitty has been lately, here he is…on his favorite new perch. Ever since we installed this kitty-cat window seat, he has claimed it as his own. He loves to watch the leaves blowing in the wind and the birds fluttering at the feeder. I do believe it’s his favorite season…and mine, too! How about you…do you love fall as much as I do?
