NC Part 5 - Neutral Fall Tablescape

Still in the Smokies.
I gathered some of my this-and-that 
to create a neutral Fall table setting this week.
 Here's what I used.
 Leather placemats from JCP outlet, 
on sale for $2 each. 
 Woven bamboo chargers. I found these last 
Saturday at the Maple Leaf Fest in Whittier.
 I got 6 for $2 !!
 My pewter dinnerware set. 
 6 dinner plates, salad plates, bowls, and 
mugs with white pottery liners. 
I got this set at a neighborhood garage sale in
 Barrington, IL many years ago for $30.
 Grapevine napkin rings. 
White ceramic escargot dishes. 
We love escargot.
 My hammered finish Cambridge flatware has
 a bit of a rustic look and works with everything.
 White teapot on warming trivet, 
cow creamer, heart ramekin for soft butter
 and covered bowl for sugar or jam.
 Cow salt and pepper set sits in front of a 
black and white gingham check pumpkin from
 Target last year.
 A Longaberger wrought iron candle stand 
usually sits on the kitchen window sill. 
This week it's a centerpiece.
 A Longaberger pillar candle holder works 
perfectly as a wine caddy. 
I love the pinecone and acorn motif.
 This time I'm using the Longaberger wrought
 iron stand with the metal tray to hold 
the teapot and cow creamer.
It also has a Fall relief pattern.
A use what you have tablescape!

Stay Cozy...


  1. It's gorgeous. I love the use of the leather and wicker with the pewter and white dishes and accessories. Beautiful. Hugs, Marty

  2. What a warm & cozy table, I can imagine spending hours enjoying a meal and talking into the night. Somewhere I have the Longaberger fall tray, I'll have to go on a search. Weren't there round ones as well?
    Hugs, Dawna

  6. I'm stopping by for a blog visit from Between Naps on the Porch today. I'm a urge fan of her tablescapes.
    Autumn is my favorite time of year. The decorations, colors and textures that you chose are so beautiful.
    What a festive table.
    Garage sales, thrift shops and discount sales are my great for purchasing decorative items.
