Earth Tones and Fall Colors


Hi all! Is it just me or do the days go fast for everyone? I can't believe it is tablescape time again.


Most of you already know that Tablescape Thursday is hosted by the most talented home maker, Susan, of http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/
If you want to get a lot of inspirations, go visit her and her participants.


Tablescape today is in the kitchen breakfast nook. I left most of my autumnal centerpiece there from last week, just rearranged a little bit.






I love the warm earth tone colors of fall and to make the table look even warmer, I skipped the table cloth to expose the wood of the table. Instead I used a runner with coordinating colors.



I bought these plates at Home Goods in a suburb of Chicago last August when I went to pick up my mom. The chargers are "Parsley" by Pinzon.



I used monogrammed tea towels for my napkin and John's.




Crystal goblets in different coordinating colors and clear wine stems with similar shape and pattern.










I bought these heavy metal candle holders from one of the other vendors in the store. First, I took home the tallest one for $3 about 3 weeks ago. Then the other day, I purchased the smallest one for $1 and the medium for $2. I think they look good all together.








I love the natural bone flatware. I only have a complete settings for 4 and I have been searching for another set but haven't been successfull so far.

Just a view from the side.
I love the raised scrolls on the plates.






I hope you like another one of my creations. Thank you so much for coming by.

Your table is lovely. I can hardly wait to see what you do for Thanksgiving! i assumed you had spent a fortune and was happy to see you got a bargain on the candle holders. Way to go! I will look at your friend's blog, too. Oh, and we have a 'cock of the walk' restaurant in our town, too -- guess it's a chain -- but it's good! ;)

Beautiful, just beautiful. I love each and every detail.

Christine, everything is so pretty. Love your flatware and those glasses are so pretty. I just found your comment from my sunroom post since they still don't go to my email. $15 is good for an old coke crate. Mine came with the dividers too and I busted them out with a hammer. Just call me demolition, Kim.

Oh my goodness, Christine, I LOVE THIS ONE! I love that runner and the plates and the way that they match but are each unique. Using variety in the stemware was the perfect choice. This is a stunning table to me.
