A Scarf Tablecloth

Use a scarf as a tablecloth!
 I needed a colorful Autumn table square for my weekly tablechange. I went into my box of scarves. I never wear big square scarves anymore, especially in Florida, but I did save the ones I wore years ago when I dressed everyday for work. Some are Hermes', Burberry, Gucci, so I kept them all, even the Marshalls ones.
 One that's not silk will work best. This was an inexpensive one.
 It had all the colors in a cornucopia pattern.
 I added a few thrifty finds: wooden pumpkin napkin rings - 6/ $1.00, bamboo chargers - 6/$2.00,  decoupaged fall fabric glass plates - 4/$1.25. Yellow flatware- Pfaltzgraff-Tuesday Morning $20/set, years ago.
 A butternut yellow Longaberger bowl for the soup.
 Brass candlesticks that I have spray painted Heirloom White. S&P in a basket and  wrought iron stand both Longaberger.
 Pumpkin teapot found for $2 in a thrift shop
 Pumpkin S&P, fabric pumpkin-Target.
 Wine glasses are hand painted with fruit and ivy from The Dollar Store.....for a dollar.
 Leaf pottery plates from Walmart, on sale last year.
 Cornbread's ready! Do you make your cornbread in a cast iron skillet?
 It comes out perfectly.
 I used grapevine napkin rings for candle bobeches' rings.
Soup's On!
Taco Soup and cornbread. For soup recipe click HERE.
