Tablescape Thursday is such a fun party on Susan's porch every week. You can just imagine the rattle of dishes and platters, cups and glasses, silverware mixed with the snap of freshly pressed tablecloths being laid across tables all over blogland ....getting ready for the party! This week my table is a special one set for a special day....My husband's birthday is Monday the 4th.
So I gathered and shopped our house to create a handsome fall tablescape with him in mind.
Welcome to the table -- we're so glad that you could join us for this happy celebration.
The centerpiece contains two pheasants that are usually on our mantle for fall. Then I gathered pumpkins, leaves and acorns from my fall arrangements and added them to the table.
The gold and brown napkins came from Walmart last year as well and the maple leaf napkin rings.
Pewter goblets were wedding gifts almost 35 years ago.
A layering of the dishes, placemat and treble clef flatware.
These dishes were from Tuesday Morning a couple of years ago. They started out at $10 and got marked down and marked down until they ended up in the drastic clearance bin for 99 cents -- my kind of markdown!
Pewter dinner plates purchased from eBay to add to ones we got as wedding gifts. I think we had three and I finally got three more last year to finish up the set.
These placemats came from an antique store last year -- they actually have a design on the other side, but for this table, I turned them to the backside which is a little more plain.
Tablecloth came from Target last fall.
This hammered aluminum platter came from my father-in-laws house. I used it this summer for a beachy tablescape and I've decided to use it in at least one of my tablescapes each season.
I always like to check the centerpiece from all four seats to make sure everyone gets a "good" side.

Glad you could join us this week for our birthday celebration....I'll let you in on a little secret.....I'm really taking him out to eat! No dishes to wash.
