autumn tablescape 2

Autumn is one of my favorite month. The temperature has bee above normal . It was 80 today..  I don't get out much but the furnace has not come that is a good thing. Our winter has been predicted to be very cold.
I used the lacy fiber for place mats to bring in the fall look.
used the 5 fold napkin . I didn't like tucking in the fork.Lots of leaves 
Leaves are dropping all over the yard in a beautiful array of colors. when i was a child that was the fun part raking the leaves and then jump on the top. We lived on a dead end street with lot of large family's The street was our play ground. no electronics here
These tiny bites are so moist and yummy

I have used these dishes many times so appropriate for autumn
the top of the center piece
napkin holder with battery tea light
stem ware orange bows and name tag
goody dish
glittered pumpkins
the peach dish added color

dinner plate

soup dish
bottom of center piece on a quilted runner.

another angle hope you all have a good week and enjoy the nice weather.

Autumn tablescape 1

I do like fall. I remember we would drive up into the country and see the trees. It looked like God painted each leaf in brilliant colors and hues. We would breath the fresh air and be invigorated by the beauty of it all. We would and get cider in Burrville NY. The bad part is nights are getting colder . Up North has been predicted as a very cold winter.

we would stop and get our pumpkin from a farmer.we knew.
center piece is tall cage from the thrift store

It sets on a glass base filled with leaves and gourds. The farmers had a bad year we had so much rain and not much sun.

some rustic pumpkins

closer view. See leaves for coasters.

great dish for pumpkin pie.

goody box

hope you have a great day.

Kids Halloween table

I am not usualy one to  do scary tablescapes. This just about as scary as it gets.

I made the little lamp shades to fit a goblet and used battery tea lights. He is a casper like ghost.

A friendly old witch. the skull is creepy.
Each lamp shade is different. I used a heavy weight card stock cut to size and painted them black. I used paste on critters.I made pattern using another lamp shade and fitted to an amber goblet.
A happy ghost

It has pumpkins on each side and says hope you have a scary Halloween. these were made with small milk carton .Painted and decorated.
Another happy ghost

This is my son"s goblet. I wanted to scare him lol

Toilet paper roll covered with black satin and tiny ghosts

Glass  eyeballs floating upside down

Paper napkins in a skull cup

Another lamp for Katie

Place setting. Found cute paper plates with felt for color over white plates

I added glitter on shades for more sparkle

See the skull

Somethings just don't work.

We have large crows in the area

This one perched on witches head

Found my black shades.

Black wiggly bats and skeletons.

Another funny bat

I love gum drops

It even scares me.

It even scared  the rat

Long view

Whew this was very time consuming. Hope you don't have a scary Halloween
