The focal point for my table today is a beautiful scarf that belonged to my mother. I actually brought it home to use on a table, but now I think I'm also going to wear it. It really is gorgeous with all the fall leaves and bright color against the black background.
I paired it with green placemats and
napkins with bright orange sunflowers.
I've had these cute little sunflower plates for several months and I finally decided to use them. They were a clearance buy at TJ Maxx for $5, complete with a little iron stand to hold them. They are Room Creative by Signature, the pattern is Red Sunflower. They are the perfect size for a small salad and sit well on my creamy white Wedgewood plates (estate sale).
The flatware is Rogers Bros. silverplate (garage sale).
I used vintage crystal candlesticks to add a little height to the table. The pumpkins were a Dollar Store purchase. I remembered how many bloggers found them there last year, so I shopped early this year!
A small crystal vase with the colors of the season to bring everything together, iron votives and my every day stemware finish the table.
It is difficult to see this iron candle holder with the busy scarf under it. It has acorns and leaves. I like how it lifted a little of the candlelight off the table.
I love how the light reflected off the candle ring and the pumpkin in this shot.
I kept this table very simple.
I am joining Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch
for Tablescape Thursday. It is a fun visit
to her place to see all the beautiful tablescapes.
