Hello Ladies, welcome to the Harvest Theme Tablescape Challenge!
Tonight in order to linkup your table has to follow the theme, fruits or vegetables. I am sure we will see a lot of pumpkins! Bring them on! :) My first scape of the Fall season.
I had these beautiful pears, so they became the centerpiece. I nestled them in to some asters from the garden.
The cloth is a pale lavender matelasse throw by Ralph Lauren. I got it at the Springmaid Wamsutta Outlet , long gone now.www.thetablescaper.com
I can't do links on Live Writer as it doesn't allow it with Windows XP. I am having trouble with this old computer, so if I am not here next week, I tried to hook up the new one by myself and failed! :(
I used a round rattan charger, octagonal plate by Johnson Bros. They were ONE DOLLAR a plate in CTS, and I got 12.
Since they are loaded with fruit, perfect for a Harvest table.
Next came a purple plate, Circle of Friends by Pfaltzgraff, via CTS. I love the edge.
Flatware from World Market.
I used a deep purple napkin wrapped in a burnt orange one I made from dishtowels. TIP...check the dishtowel section for colors and patterns that may work. If it is large you can get 2 our of one towel.Tonight is the next edition of Yvonne at Stone Gable's TTT, stop by and get some great ideas!
The fruit and berries napkin ring is from BBB, and was .99 in clearance, but now they are back up to 2.99. I knew they would work well with the Johnson Bros. plates.
The hurricanes have leaves etched on them and they are from Villeroy and Boch. The butter domes are from WS Outlet when they were on sale.
To go along with the Harvest theme, I got this head of red leaf lettuce from the farm down the road. It is huge!
For our Harvest dinner, we had the "Big Salad" with tomatoes from our garden. DH had them, I don't like tomatoes, but LOVE ketchup! I know, I am strange. :)
Shrimp, chicken, red onion, feta cheese, bacon, tomatoes, carrots and toasted pecans.
There is a gift card give away tonight. Good at TJMAX, HG, or Marshall's.
