Thanksgiving 2014 Tablescape
May we all ponder upon and be thankful for all of our blessings.

If you click on the photos they will enlarge for a better view.

I wanted to do a tablescape for Thanksgiving that was more muted in color than I have done before.  Using mostly white, cream, and brown.  All except for the colorful Thanksgiving Pilgrim Cracker Poppers.  They are so fun!

                            The adorable girl pilgrim version of the cracker poppers.

Olde St. Nick Tablescape

Table setting inspired by my collection of Spode St Nick Plates.  Sold at Williams Sonoma.  Lovely transferware.  Each year Spode made a different version of the plates.  I tried to collect some from every year until they ceased production.  I have at least one from every year although not all styles were used on this table.

Just Because....I Love This Vine...

            Just Because, I Love a China Berry Vine....

The colors are Glorious!  Where can you find so many colors on one plant.  Rose, pink white, cream, lavender, purple. navy, teal, copen blue, brown, tan, greens....  How can this be?  

In my area it is hot and dry in summer so this vine needs an Eastern exposure so it doesn't get full day sun.  While perfectly fine in my garden, in the Eastern U.S,, it can be invasive.  Not here!  I wouldn't care anyway because the berry show is magical!

The Skull of Midas Tablescape

Skull of Midas

Whether you want to admit it or not, if you are a "Tabelscaper" you are already thinking of Halloween.  

 This tablescape was an easy and quick one to do.  Hopefully giving you some simple ideas for a fun Halloween table.  Just a plate stack and a simple centerpiece of a Dollar Tree skull that I covered in glitter.  Set upon an urn that I already had, placing a black plate on top of the urn to hold the skull.  Just think of any pedestal you have, if not black or the color you want just use some inexpensive spray paint and paint away!  I just used a neck scarf for a runner.  Any scarf or piece of fabric would do.     

This is a Tablescape I did last year.  I never shared it on any other websites.  So I am re-posting.  Please feel free to leave a comment below.

The black and metallic gold skull plate from Z Gallerie was my inspiration for the tablescape.  I purchased the plates in 2013 but they are still available.  They have them with a silver skull as well.  I think they are beautiful.
