head diy Design Fanatic: Fall Tablescape

Fall Tablescape

We have kept the table set ever since I set it when  we showed our house awhile back. This week I changed it to more of a fall setting, although these colors could be used for Christmas, as well.



Once again, I am using my only set of every day plates ... Mikasa Italian Countryside. I hope Debbie over at Debbiedoos Loves Livin In The Carolinas doesn't hate me, but I went right over to Walmart and purchased the fall chargers. You can see them better in Debbie's photo here. Remember...copying is the sincerest form of flattery!


The ballerina salt shakers were my Grandmother's. She made the crocheted table runner, as well.


I've had the red glasses for a long time - I can't remember where I bought them


Here's the lovely metal birdcage, green birdie and faux berries I purchased up in Blowing Rock last Sunday.
Thanks for stopping by,

Pam

  1. You know stealing - I mean copying - is the sincerest form of flattery. I have a metal bird cage in my attic and I just might have to grab it for my next fall tablescape. Great Idea! The salt and peppers are adorable.

  2. The centerpiece is my favorite part. I love the simplicity of it! I'm also crazy about birds so that is a plus...

    I saw those great looking chargers at Walmart and wanted some too. I resisted... ON THAT TRIP anyway. They look great on your table,and I love your colors.

  4. Great table! Love the runner! It's only smart to add only one or two things for a table now and then. Keeps you creative!

  6. I really like using red for Fall decorating since you just switch out a few things and ... yep! There's Christmas!
    Love your table decor.

  9. Copying is flattery, I do it often too! This is so pretty Pam! I love every choice here and how well everything sit's together (space wise) on your table. Not too much and not too little. It's just perfect! Your Mikasa is beautiful and I think I told you before that I really love those votives with the burlap! Beautiful tablescape!

  13. I love your birdcage! It's a great piece to have and ...I would love to have it;) The colors on your table are so nice and I think it's wonderful that you have the family heirloom. I saw those chargers yesterday. I thought I wanted them, but now I know I do! Thanks for sharing.

  15. So pretty Pam...and yes you can keep that up for sometime, so you do not have to keep changing it. That looks really nice when showing a home. Looks like a model home.
