My First Tablescape

I have been looking at all the wonderful Tablescapes on tablescape Thursday hosted by Susan @Between Naps on the Porch and have been inspired to try doing a fall tablescape of my own. This is my very first tablescape so no laughing you experienced tablescapers.

I started with green dinner plates that I got at Marshall's for about $2.00 each. I don't remember where I got the placemats.

Then I added these salad plates with fall colors, also from Marshall's for $2.00 each

Cute leaf bowls from Marshall's and wine glasses from Kohl's came next

Then all the fun stuff was added. The faux pumpkins and leaves are from Rite-Aid. 50% off!

The quails are made by a local artist, Margaret Hudson. Check out her web-site, she has some cute things!

Thanks to all the tablescapers for inspiring me. Can't wait to do the next one.

Hope to see you next week ... and the next ... and the next ... ;)

very nice! I really like your bowls and your centerpiece! Great placemats too! I thought,hummm....wouldn't those be great for a Hawaiian themed tablescape?!! My daughter went to college at U of H so I'm always on the look out for such things to see if the table was pretty,maybe she'd stay home for dinner once in awhile. tee hee
Great job!

Welcome to TT! Great "starter" 'scape which looks like you are an old hat at it! Those leaf bowls are my fav and I like how you put the pumpkins in the apothecary jar for a centerpiece! Hope you'll be back often!

That came together beautifully! I think the placemats are really interesting. Sort of a natural twiggy look that goes well with the scattered leaves. I think you're off to a great start (I've only done 2 myself).

Very nicely done! Your table looks lovely & I hope you join in next week, too.

You did a great job! And everything came together beautifully for a fantastic fall look on your table -- love what you've gathered for your harvest look.
