A simple fall table setting & the winner!!!

Hi ALL!!

I have been busy with many, many projects!

Here is one of my fall-thanksgiving table settings

that I used as a back drop for the Aiden Gray giveaway announcement.

I found this vintage cornucopia at a flea market.

I used antique blue and white

transfer ware as dinner plates, with vintage ironstone dishes

as the chargers,  and

old, creamy, white forks and knives. My favorite.

I found these gorgeous vintage burlap

place mats at A Beautiful Mess product of

3 Fine Grains! Did you know Kymberly has a blog too???

I love to use natural elements when I decorate! I adore these peacock feathers

and the blue color.

I am itching for new ideas to decorate and trying to think outside

the box!

of my hutch and turned into a

buffet! I love it!

  14. Hi Lulu, the table setting is gorgeous! Congrats to T for winning, her blog is sweet, and insireing. For more ideas on tablescapes and settings, I have always loved a book I have called "Formal Country Entertaining" there are some beautiful photos and recipes, with ideas on hosting dinner parties or luncheons. Awesome set ups. Not sure if it's available any longer but you can possibly check at your local Barnes and Nobles.
