Thanks to Susan, we dish people can get our fill of Tablescapes once again as we begin the countdown for Tablescape Thursday. Join Susan at Between Naps on the Porch each Thursday for this delightful event.
Are there any rules that say we can’t repeat a tablescape we have done? I haven’t heard of any. My blog was brand new about this time last year when I shared this one.
Say hello to the Birthday Girl, my Mother.
I just returned from a trip to my hometown where we once again celebrated this sweet lady and her birthday. It reminded me of this tablescape I did a couple of years ago. The idea occurred to me to have a little brunch in my home and to invite Mom and three of her friends to come.
We ladies enjoy our day trips with food and a little shopping afterwards, right?
Let’s begin by pulling out some dishes that seem fall like. Brown transferware fits the bill, don’t you think? At the time I didn’t have enough brown cups so I introduced my red to intermingle with the brown. No one complained that I heard, anyway!
My centerpiece was simple but elegant with an oversized faux pear placed upon a luncheon plate to match the dishes. I liked the idea of a burlap ribbon to drape down and around the cloche.
The pears went home with the ladies along with a couple recipes I wrote out of entrees served.
The faux pears added color and a feel for the season. This was the first time I had used the deep red tablecloth with these dishes, but it seemed right.
The napkin rings were pieces of grapevine with some faux berries tied around.
Can you see the silver pheasant salt and pepper shakers? I use these a lot this time of year. They are favorites of mine!
Here she is again, pleasing me to stop eating for a picture. She says I take more pictures than anyone she knows.
It was a fun celebration and I do think everyone enjoyed themselves.
Thank you so much for all the nice comments about last week’s tablescape with a Titanic Theme. Within the next couple of days I promise I will post pictures of the costumes and tell you a huge secret from the evening!
Do come again, won’t you??
