Welcome to The Tablescaper.
What a crazy Fall!
I can’t seem to get myself into Fall mode.
Is it any wonder with the temperatures we’ve been having in the North East?
Today easily could have been a day in August,…
…instead of the beginning of October.
I’ve yet to pull out the rusts and golds and instead…
…seem to lean more towards the pale greens,…
…with a touch of brown being my nod to Fall.
Great to be able to use the glorious hydrangea of the season.
The goblets are from a super sale at Horchow.
Flatware from World Market.
Napkin rings, with their great contrast of texture, were a Christmas Tree score, I think from last year.
This magnificent fig pitcher was purchased at Tuesday Morning’s this summer while shopping with Kathleen. One of my most favorite purchases from this summer!
Now to peel away the layers of the onion.
I found these this summer at Christmas Tree in their Clearance section for $1.00 a piece. I had originally passed them up, trying to be good, thankfully when Kathleen was there on a later date, she was able to pick them up for me.
I purchased these glass beauties a few years ago at a thrift shop.
These glass chargers were purchased this summer while on a shopping excursion with Kathleen of Cuisine Kathleen. They were in a Dollar and up store for $1.98! Quite a number of bubbles in the glass, but once the dinner plate is on top, you’d never know. I only wish they had more.
I’m often asked, where does my inspiration for so many different tables come from. These table started with this material.
Which brings me to my TIP. You don’t need to have a new tablecloth to have a table that looks brand new.I purchased this remnant on a shopping trip with Kathleen this summer. I didn’t buy a ton of yardage. I didn’t even sew the edges, I taped them and then placed them over a larger cloth. It gave the old solid colored cloth a whole new look! Just a bit of material can change the entire look!
