It's Hunting Season, 2016

I created this hunt scene tablescape for my son, Jed and his wife, Becky and her brother, Brad, who are avid hunters. Hunting season just started in Florida and out they already went this weekend. Good luck to you all!
 



I like using my animal print table runner, that I bought from Z Gallerie many years ago, probably my most favorite buy from there. I love the shape!
 
 

My antler was a gift from my son and DIL, that they cleaned and dried from one of their hunted deers. Get me a bigger one next time, Jed and Becky!

I alternated 2 different napkin rings


I placed an acorn place card on each plate, just for an added touch.


I started decorating for Fall at home too, showing the foyer table here.


I am out of walls with still so many more pictures to hang and now just stored under the guest room beds, but I thought I would just put this hunt scene picture on the buffet table for now, to go with the theme.

I bought this pair of horn candle holders from a friend in Natchez who moved away before us.

I think this fox is really cute.
I have hunt scene salad plates but I still have not been able to get to them, still buried in the garage, but for now, my elk (or are they moose?) plates will do.

 
A woodsy centerpiece


Animal print plate chargers. I had 2 sets of this but I sold a set to Candy, another blogger before we moved from MS.

Dark brown bamboo flatware set.



For the tea set, I opted for my Bavarian Tirschenreuth set with mostly brown pattern.

And that's it, folks! I hope you enjoyed my fun table like I do. Thank you for your visits and for the hostesses for these parties I always link to. You are very much appreciated.

Brown Transferware

 

Cooler mornings inspired me to take my brown transferware out and use them. I took out a brown linen tablecloth and then looked around for what I can gather on the table.

The dinner plates are made by Johnson Bros' Historic America. I don't know why but I am always drawn to historical plates. I really like them, no matter what the pattern is. 

The base are wooden plate chargers I bought from Walmart many years ago, followed with the historical dinner plates that we bought from an estate sale, I think in Brookhaven.

The dessert plates and soup bowls are Staffordshire W.H. Grindley's "Sunday Morning" 
 I thought the tablescape looks kinda manly so I decided to use vintage beer mugs. This is the first time I have ever used them.
 John found these steins about 2 years ago in an estate sale in Natchez while I was in Florida helping out with my granddaughter, Rea, who was undergoing chemo treatments at the time. In case you are curious, Rea is doing very well. She has been on remission for 2 years now, very healthy and active. She and her twin sister Halle just started VPK. Thank you again to all who prayed for her.
  John loves ducks and I love boxes so when I saw this, I had to buy it. Love that it is rustic too.


 Transferware Cruet set
 Bone flatware are from Neiman Marcus on line. I don't like using them too much  because they are very heavy.

 A touch of fall!
 Tea time with matching cups and saucers.



Thank you all for you visits. I always appreciate them.
And thanks to the hostesses of these fun parties. Always appreciate you all too!

Feathered Friends and Fruits

I thought I would create a transitional table since it is getting somewhat cooler outside. And I always love the color of Fall.

I already had the pomegranate inside the cloche as my centerpiece so I just continued using it. Then I placed my rooster tablecloth. I think I bought it from Williams Sonoma years ago but this is the first time I've ever used it. Then, I remember seeing my tin fruit plate chargers that I saw in the garage while organizing there. They are the perfect color so I used them too. I got them on Ebay way back before I was even blogging.

I decided to use my Palftzgraff white dinner and salad plates in "Confetti" pattern to add a lighter color since it is not really Fall yet. Then I topped the setting with a bowl with peacocks
Since I decided to title my post "Feathered Friends and Fruits", my apples and strawberries S&P shakers would blend right in.


I have amber stems stored somewhere but could not find them so I used this set since they were stored in a cabinet inside the house and were readily available.
I added chickens in my centerpiece.
and rooster tea light holders and a vase a friend from Natchez gave me and placed fall colored leaves and flowers in it.
I have that little cute peacock another friend gave me from my Natchez days.
The orange flatware my son and daughter in law gave me one Christmas, looks right at home on this table.


Oh, I also found a little parrot lidded dish in the buffet table drawer and just added that to the table.








My napkin rings are various white feathered birds.
And I love using this tea set between summer and Fall.

Thank you so much for the visit! My feathered friends thank you too.

I appreciate all the hostesses of the memes that I enjoy linking with. Thank you so much!
