40th - Tablescape - Golden Harvest

The Harvest Season has already been a very busy one!  Was so busy in and around the house last week I totally missed "Tablescape Thursday" even though a new tablescape was the first thing I did Monday morning.  Oh, well - here is my tablescape from Last Week.  Check back - I new one will be posted this week!
Golden Harvest - keeping with the Fall Season - this week I picked a tablerunner and ran with the colors it are the results...

 The table runner I chose had so many different fall colors it was fun and easy to put it all together...
 Using "pumpkin" colored placemats, black square chargers set on the diagnol, and square plates that have the similar color pattern of the table runner.
  Golden/lacy napkins with bronze square napkin rings..

 The desert plates are perfect "Harvest Themed" 2 of each different saying - one in Gold and the Other in Maroon...

 Used these vintage "coca-cola" glasses because of their brown tones...
 Light the candles and we are all set...

The centerpiece was just a black candle on a gold/toned candlestick holder with some deep fall colored leaves...

December 5th our Church is having a "Host your Table" Ladies dinner.  There will be 30 different tablescapes done by 30 different women.  No theme just whatever each lady would like to do.  So, I of course am hosting one table and doing another tablescape as a give-away - at the dinner for a family in need of tableware.  I already have the dinnerware.  Anyone that would like to donate something for a "Christmas Tree" themed tablescape, just email me for my address - it will go to a great cause and for sure a great big thank you will be linked back to you!

As always - thanks to Susan at BNOTP for sponsoring Tablescape Thursdays. Remember: "Around the world - - life is best around the table". Thanks for visiting; please leave some encouraging words!
NEXT WEEK - RED & WHITE - Will be using my Johnson & Bros. Old Bradbury.  I got such a deal, 25 piece set for $15.  It has the serving bowl and platter as part of the set.   Stop back by and take a look!


  1. So beautiful! I do not know why I have never noticed your wonderful chairs before!! So pretty. Love the plates, so unusual, and prefect!

  2. It looks wonderful. It's inviting and warm and a treat for the eyes. Those plates are terrific.

  3. Great plates and the glasses are fun too. I love how you stacked your plates. It's very much fun. Beautiful table.

  4. I really like your tablerunner. I like how you used your square plates on the diagnol like that.

  5. Very pretty and harvesty! Love the candle lit look!

  6. Your hurricane with the letter "M" is neat. I don't know if you purchased it that way or created it yourself, but it is very cool. Thanks for the idea!

  7. I'm particularly fond of the dessert plates with sayings on them...they would be really great to start a conversation about an attitude of gratitude. Thank you for sharing your charming design. Cherry Kay

  8. Loved your plates with the great quotes on them,
    They are really cute and sort of set the tone!
    After all that is what Thanksgiving is all about.
    Very inviting and fallish table.
    blessings, Nellie
