Today I am joining Susan from Between Naps On The Porch for my first tablescape!
I love autumn hues and here I've gone wild with the oranges and browns. With the exception of the wine glasses, the items used are our every day dishes.
Close up of the place setting. I have a twig basket filled with pinecones and a couple of fake gourds as the centerpiece. The place mats were purchased at a garage sale and have oak leaf and acorn pattern quilting. They were originally sold at Wal-Mart and I just couldn't afford them at the time. They look like they have never been used and I got 6 of them for 3 dollars. Now that's my kind of bargain! I also picked up 4 blue place mats at the same garage sale. Another set I had been wanting too. I was a happy camper that day.
The red-headed duck has flown in from the bookcase to keep us company. Next to him is the pumpkin salt shaker. I love these little salt and pepper shakers. They were three dollars at Wal-Mart.
