Pumpkin and Peacock Feathers Fall Tablescape

Hello! I thought I would share a tablescape post from a couple years ago. Enjoy!

Even though I won’t be hosting any family dinners for the holiday, my table is set and ready to go! I just like having a pretty table to look at. Most of the time it has lots of other things on it like mail, magazines and books, but I did manage to clear it off to get some pictures to share with you!

I started out with my white tablecloth. I use this one for almost every season! It makes a great base to build on. Next I layered a scalloped chalkboard runner over the middle. I love this runner! You can write messages right on it! This would be great for your Thanksgiving dinner and everyone could write what they are thankful for. I looked up the website and I noticed they didn’t have any chalk cloth right now, but here is the link in case they get more in and you are interested:  http://modernjune.com/collections/chalk-cloth-2.

I placed an orange tea towel I picked up from Target a few years ago, in the middle of the runner. Next came the teal napkins which I used as placemats.

Now came the fun part, for me anyways! I layered my white plates with smaller turquoise salad plates, then added a peacock napkin and a small pumpkin to each place setting. The silverware is my everyday, BH&G silverware. I placed a glass and a mug by each setting.

The centerpiece of the table is the large woven pumpkin. I had been admiring these for quite a while and then happened to find one at a thrift store. Don’t you love it when that happens?

I also added a candle on pedestal, an owl and a lumpy white pumpkin.

On the other side of the large pumpkin I placed this wonderful glass and wood holder, also found at a thrift store with the Target tag still on it. I placed a glittery pumpkin and a few leaves inside.

Once all the decorations were placed, I wound some leaves around it all and then added the peacock feathers. Sure glad Haley wanted a peacock theme for her graduation party!

I almost forgot to show you this cute little ruler pumpkin! I found a bundle of rulers and varnished them with different shades. I cut a piece of wood in the shape of a pumpkin and then glued the rulers to the top. Once the glue was dry, I cut out around the pumpkin shape again to trim the edges of the ruler. I also made a larger one that is on my front porch.

Are you getting ready for the holidays? Will you be spending time with family and friends, maybe hosting dinner at your house? I’d love to hear how you spend your holidays too!
