Fall Table In Black and White

Here's a neutral Fall table setting 
I put together while we were at our
 place in North Carolina's Smoky Mountains.
 I gathered some of my this-and-that
 Here's what I used.
 Leather placemats from JCP outlet, 
$2 each.  I know...rrrrrrr!
 Woven rattan chargers. I found these at the 
Maple Leaf Fest in our little town of Whittier. 
I got 6 for $2 !!
 My pewter dinnerware is a set of 6 each:
 dinner plates, salad plates, bowls, and 
mugs with white pottery insert cups. 
The inserts make it easy to just put 
the cups in the dishwasher. 
 I found this set many years ago at our
annual neighborhood garage sale in
 Barrington, IL for $30. We basically
 just bought each others stuff! 
 Grapevine napkin rings and black napkins.
White ceramic escargot dishes. 
We love escargot.
 My hammered finish Cambridge flatware has 
a rustic vibe and it works with everything.
 White pottery: teapot on warming trivet, 
cow creamer, heart ramekin for soft butter,
 and covered bowl for sugar or jam.
I found this cow salt and pepper set thrifting. 
It sits in front of a black and white gingham 
check fall pumpkin from Target.
 A Longaberger wrought iron candle stand 
usually sits on the kitchen window sill. 
This week it's the table's centerpiece.
 A Longaberger pillar candle holder works 
perfectly as a wine caddy. 
I love it's pinecone and acorn motif.
 I used the Longaberger wrought iron stand 
again, but this time with the metal tray to 
hold the white teapot and a cow creamer.
It has an acorn and leaf raised pattern
around it's border.
A use what you have tablescape!



  1. So pretty! My family wouldn't know what to do a such a nice table setting! Maybe someday....Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my blog, I hope you share when you make your tapered crate! Hugs!

  2. Just found your blog via Lindas Life Journal. Love the table settings, so many great ideas I must try! I am now following you on Pinterest and FB! I am new to blogging and am enjoying it very much. Keep sharing! jackie

  3. I just love your wicker chargers. 6 for 2.00 I couldn't believe what I was reading! What a find! I love visiting your blog and seeing all of your wonderful ideas and decorating projects. I scrolled down and saw your tributes to your sweet doggies. I've always seen them in your pictures, but didn't know they had passed. I'm so sorry for your loss.

  4. So lovely...this color scheme is great. Love the pewter.

  5. Wonderful I definitely need to garage sale in your neighborhood. Love the pewter chargers!

  6. Very nice indeed, but I would not say neutral. The white of the dishes may be neutral but the wrought iron and the brass make your Table shine with a great look and texture.

  7. Well I stopped on over from Facebook, and I am so glad I did. I love your tablescape, especially all the different textures you used. I wish you still lived in Il, we could so go thrifting together! Love the pewter plates.

  8. Very pretty indeed. Love all your layering. I'm a pewter gal too.

  9. Beautiful table Rita! You did a great job.
