head diy Design Fanatic: Another Fall Tablescape

Another Fall Tablescape

Today I finally took down all of the decorations from my youngest daughter's 17th birthday party. I enjoy having the table set just in case someone calls to see the house. This table looks so much better set since it covers up all of the damage done to the table top. My oldest daughter spilled nail polish remover  on the table several years ago and since then I have had to keep a table cloth on it.

It is still suppose to be in the 90's through Saturday, but it's suppose to be in the low 80's by Sunday.
In anticipation of cooler weather, I included soup bowls on the table because Chicken Stew is a family favorite when the weather gets cool. My youngest daughter loves it so much she has asked for Chicken Stew in the middle of summer!


I really need to get some more dishes, because I really only have one set for every day -- Mikasa Italian Countryside. It goes with everything. The green bowls are from Target. The chargers are from Walmart. The pumpkin is new and is from HomeGoods. The cake stand was also a HomeGoods find awhile back. I pulled the runner out of my teak chest and I believe it was my grandmother's, but it doesn't look like it is hand made.
I love the little burlap wrapped candles I made awhile back.


Hope you all are having a great week! Thanks for stopping by,

Pam

  6. Everything looks so great! So inviting!

    I'm thinking about the Canon Powershot as well. I'm leaning toward the SD1300. I'm tired of spending a lot of money on cameras only to have them last a couple of years!

  12. I have a side table which suffered the same nail polishing fate. Hrmph. The positive thing is that a table cloth looks nice on a dining table!

    This whole table is pretty, and my favorite part is that great pumpkin in the centerpiece! It looks perfect with your fall table and those burlap candles.

    I really want some red stemware!! It always looks gorgeous on the table.

  16. Your table looks great! I just got those same dishes, Italian Countryside... I wanted something that would be easier to work with. I like the grape vine pumpkin on the glass cake plate, and the acorns spread about.... very cute! The burlap around the candles is cute! A piece of raffia around them would be cute too! Liz

  20. I love all the little touches you have on this table. The pumpkin looks so pretty on the cake stand. I just love Italian Countryside. I am sure it is so versatile. Just changing up the linens and centerpieces must make it look new every time. If I had the room, I would buy some now but there isn't a spot for it. Lovely table!
