Thursday

Colorful Autumn

 I'm joining Cuisine Kathleen's Let's Dish, and Susan's Tablescape Thursday, click on their names for lots more fun.

Inspiration for this tablescape started here:

I found this pretty mercury glass pumpkin at Home Goods a couple months ago.

I bought this owl at TJ Maxx sometime this past year, but never used him.


I've never used these napkins before either, I think I found them at TJ Maxx some time ago

They have the same shade of blue in them. I'm not sure what color this blue is named, is it Tiffany blue, or robin's egg blue? It's a popular color now.

 I was surprised the tablescape came together so easily using things I already had.The rust colored tablecloth works great with the napkins. I wasn't sure what color plates would work, but these purple plates from Walmart (a few years ago) look really good!

 I bought the woven looking chargers from Old Time Pottery last year, I had planned to paint them white and am glad I didn't yet as they look nice this color!

The blue owl and pumpkin look great with the orange mercury glass pumpkin I have had for several years.
 
 A nice trio!

The flatware is from Tuesday Morning (several years ago.)

The centerpiece:

Faux fall leaves and berries are intertwined around the pumpkins.
 

 The unique colors all work together!


There are four different pumpkins on the napkin rings:




 I found the napkin rings at Hobby Lobby a few years ago.


 This fall tablescape could last until Thanksgiving with an addition of turkeys or a cornucopia as the centerpiece.


 We are having family here this Thanksgiving, so there will be lots of people around the table, maybe adding a few more extension leaves, and my grandson will probably make place cards for everybody.

 So much food will be on the table that there's no room for a centerpiece!
 I'm looking forward to having the family here!
 I don't mind all the work of preparing Thanksgiving dinner because my husband helps and does as much or more than I do!
 And my daughters help a lot, everybody pitches in to help! It's lots of fun, enjoyed by all!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Good Morning, my friend!

I love the addition of the turquoise to the fall tablescape. ThA is perfect for fall by the sea, and is one of my favorite colors of all time. Fun goodies you found there and a pretty tablescape, too!

xo,

Sheila

Isn't it fun to realize you've bought different elements in different stores, and somehow they all work together to form a pretty tablescape? It seems to be part of this special hobby. I love the way all your colors blend sooo well to come up with a table that just pops with color! Beautiful!! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

Amazing you found napkins to pick up the colors of the pumpkin! So vibrant!
Thanks for sharing at Let's Dish!

I really love the idea of using those colors on a fall table. It makes me think of looking at a mountainside in the fall against the autumn sky. (And I grew up in the mountains so I'm not just dreaming that up from the piney stick flatss of Georgia. Ha!)

Your Thanksgiving table sounds like ours. Given the choice between food and a centerpiece, I'll take food any day of the year, especially if my mom is cooking most of it.

And even though I commented on the wedding post, I'll say again: I LOVED IT!!!
