Tablescape Thursday~Fall Party

I am joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday and the Fall Party at Rhoda's Southern Hospitality...Thanks for hosting dear ladies..

I am not fully decorated for Fall...just bringing out things little by little.
I won't put out the Halloween for another week or so...

Here's my front door...

Photobucket

The acorn bells were a gift from a friend from a Holidays forum on GWeb, Kay..:)

Photobucket

Photobucket

This lantern is from WSonoma Outlet...last year..

Photobucket

She will greet you as you come through the foyer..she can hold some treats in her apron...

Photobucket

I will have to catch up with the rest of you who are fully decorated...I am still trying to find all the Fall bins in the basement!!

Tonight's table.."Leaf" me alone... :)

The tablecloth is from Portugal..a gift from my sister about 35 years ago..It came with solid napkins in 3 colors..I have them..one is mangled..someone left it too close to the candle at a dinner party..{you know who you are! :)}

Photobucket

I used brown round mats, burnt orange plate, ($ Tree)

That amber bubble glass pitcher I got in the Pfaltzgraff clearance center 2 yrs ago...it was marked 24.99, but I got it for .96 cents!!
I bought 4 and gave them away...

Photobucket

The leaf plate and butter spreader is from Pfaltzgraff outlet...

Photobucket

The fall colored napkins have leaves on them, and I wired faux squash and leaves to a napkin ring..

Photobucket

The orange leaf is Chantal..clearance at Home Goods..2.00

I filled a hurricane with mini faux pumpkins, orange candle and surrounded it with a leaf garland..added more faux squash and acorns..

The little acorn covered bowls are also from the Pfaltzgraf clearance

Photobucket

The amber wine glasses are from Villeroy and Boch..

Photobucket

I cut the butter with an acorn cookie cutter, and made the biscuits in a pumpkin mold.

Photobucket

Dinner was pork cutlets, pounded dipped in milk, then panko and fried..
Parmesan potatoes and glazed carrots...apples simmered in apricot brandy for the top of the cutlet..

Photobucket

For dessert I made a little pumpkin pie...used Bakerella's recipe...

I painted the acorn cut outs with chocolate..

Photobucket

With the extra pumpkin filling, I had enough for 2 little tarts...

Photobucket

The recipe is very good. If you like a custardy filling though, use a different recipe.
Would I make this again, (that is the test for me..) yes!

I sure could have used Sue at Sullivan and Murphy's acorn salt and peppers for this table. Go see her decos..she has really gone all out..just beautiful!

I am also linking this to Foodie Friday at Designs by Gollum, and Suzy's Flashback Friday as I have made the Parmesan Potatoes and Pork Cutlets with Apple compote before...

Thanks for visiting....I do appreciate it!

  46. Hi Kathleen- Thanks for the shout-out on the little acorn salt and pepper shakers and my decorations! Yup, they would have complemented your tablescape very nicely.

    All your pieces of Pfaltzgraf, Dollar Tree, and Homegoods dinnerware are so pretty- Everything is so nicely put-together! And the menu.... oh I want to start cooking those heavier, heartier meals- so welcoming and satisfying.
    Your table says comfort and beauty, Kathleen. You're a very talented lady!

    Hugs, Sue

  52. Kathleen,
    Thanks so much for stopping by and making the rounds of my silly little blog!
    You know you're making me really hungry. That pumpkin pie makes my want to go outside and pick a pumpkin to bring home and eat. I eat them with butter and cheese. I know... I'm weird.
    Your porch looks beautiful. I've done absolutely nothing at home for decorating. Pathetic!
    xo,

  54. Hi Kathleen,
    Love your fall table. I have been playing catch up and didn't get mine done in time. Your pieces are outstanding... and you just crack me up with the bargains you get. I need to be on your overflow list... You could even turn a profit on me...;) Do you cook a full on dinner every night? I "have" to know the answer to this question. Have a great day.

  56. This is just tooooooooo nice!! So pretty and colorful!! Just wish you could serve food I could eat!! I am basically down to whole gluten free grains, vegies, fruit, beans, tofu!! Its the only thing that keeps my cholesterol down! (why does everything have to change after menapause (hmm, how DO you spell that---may be men should pause!) Oh my house blog is spindle cottage (I have different ones)

  58. Oh my goodness that little pie is so cute! I love it. Your place looks great decorated for fall. I'll make Randy dig out Halloween this or next weekend. I am loving fall this year. Thanks for joining me for the Flashback!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Wow, what a great table! You've collected some wonderful fall pieces, and layered them together so well! Those napkin rings have given me ideas...

    And thanks for stopping by my place! I will confess that since there was (miraculously) just one TINY little spill at dinner, I decided to hold off on the test wash for the table cloth for awhile so I can enjoy the setup for a bit! (I just covered the spot with a leaf... shhh...)
