Tablescape Thursday!


Welcome to another Tablescape Thursday. Its raining outside and so dark so the light is really bad, but hey..it made me smile putting it all together. I was in a time crunch so it was kinda tossed together and needs to be tweaked here and there. Visit more tablescape ideas over at: http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/


The center of the table is an old iron candelabra I found at a garage sale for 2.00. Its rusty and worn but I love it..today I have garland added and instead of 5 candles I placed pumpkins inside.






The ceramic soup pumpkin I found at Wal-mart..




I used leather chargers, on a green velvet placemat that is turned sideways. I like the texture combinations. On top of that is my Wal-mart special plate , a Halloween plate and my napkin with a beaded Southern living napkin ring.



Upon removing your napkin, each family member is greeted with a different Halloween scene.



*** To answer everyones question on the Halloween plates, I bought them at Kohls years ago for 80% off..got them for a song!!****









My glasses are from a flea market from ages ago, they have a slight purple hue to them.






This a a blurry photo, but you get the idea..can you see my basket on the ground full of things for my garage sale this weekend? My house is a wreck!!! Thanks for visiting!
