I have been wanting to do a Autumn/Harvest table for months! And with the Holidays approaching, I thought it's now or never.
I love my harvest time dinner plates. I bought 6 of them last fall and now I just wish I could find the bowls to match. So until then, I will have a one plate table-scape. Is that permissible?
I found these cool place-mats at TJ Maxx. They are like a really thick felt type fabric. I love the design and thought they would look nice next to my white table. The rooster napkin rings are a gift from Cuisine Kathleen. Thanks Kathleen, I lover them!
I made the napkins last year and the runner too. Nothing fancy but they fit the bill.
My white gobbler was purchased last year at Home Goods. I love the white ceramic look of him. I think he was about $6.
I used my black lantern as a centerpiece. I was going to take night pics but I just ran out of time. I had little Addison over last night and she needs lots of Grandma kisses.
Here's a pic of the table runner fabric. It's very close to the plates and I was happy to find it.
Cost about $3 to make the runner.
I found these pretty gold goblets at Wally World. They were marked down to a buck a piece!
My kind of deal!
We had just a bit of sun today but mostly it was cloudy and cold. Typical November weather.
A slightly different angle.
So there you have it! My one and only Autumn table. Maybe I can do better for Christmas but I think I am just going to aim for one. Too much to do and not worth stressing over.
I have so much to be thankful for. My husband has a secure job. I have a part-time job and my children are healthy and although they have their fair share of struggles, they are mostly ok. And.....
I have this adorable and healthy little grand-daughter to be thankful for!
Welcome to Applestone Cottage. My husband Dan and I bought this cottage in the hills of Western Wisconsin 2 years ago. My husband Dan is a building construction and woodworking teacher at our local high school. He loves to build and I love to decorate on a shoe-string budget. With an empty nest looming, we wanted to take our life in a new direction. We found our little stone cottage on 2 acres surrounded by apple trees. Hence, Applestone Cottage began. Please join us as we turn on little cottage in the country into an inviting little home. Cindy
