Tablescape Thursday for October 15

It is tablescape Thursday at Susan's--time is flying!! For this week's tablescape we had our little table that we enjoy eating at when there is just two or three of us for dinner. I think gnomes and Fall and canoeing go together. So the center of the table had a cute gnome-scape.

I like birds and brass and berries and brown (the 4 b's for Fall too

There is something so homey and lovely about this gnome couple nestled in the brass candlesticks.

We used our ruby stemware, and our deep brown bowls (I only have two of these and they are by corelle--wish I could find more. The ones they are now selling are much smaller!) I found the napkins at a yard sale and I love their color!) I tried some other candles of a more pumpkin color (below) but decided I liked the taller lighter ones.

Below is the big table which sits in the same room. I found the little squirrel in an antique shop, but he is probably quite new.

I couldn't leave out how well the couch in the next room matches our table decor!! And the wild beasty loves it too.

After a trip to the zoo on the weekend we picked up a few pretty leaves and inserted them under the glass tabletop.(below)

So I ended up with the more beige colored candles. I tried white and pumpkin colored ones--and ended with these. It is a cozy spot and the gnomes make me smile! Have a nice weekend, ya'll.

  1. You put together a beautiful table,Nannykim.

    Most of my tables are done on a budget or made up of dishes I've had for years and years, inherited when J's mother passed away. I always say, look at what you have and you will be surprised the wonderful tables you can come up with. I usually only buy 4 glasses or 4 plates, never sets. That way,not a lot tied up in the dishes. The flatware on the table this week was 99 cents, at Target. I wish we had thrift stores in our area, that have dishes, but ours don't. I think a lot of bloggers find fabulous dishes at Goodwill and other stores. Once in awhile I find bargains at Marshall's in the dish aisle and sometimes they are on clearance. I didn't get into really setting the table until I was well into my 60's, though. I think it's a hobby along with blogging that is hopefully keeping the family memory thing from my door a little longer.

  2. Love those little birdie votives.

    I found some at Dollar Tree that are brown. I went back the next day and bought out all the rest! I was planning to paint half of them white and rub off a bit of the paint.

    You didn't say where you got yours, but they sure look the same.

  30. Very nice! I LOVE your ruby red glasses and your kitty looks just like our Hank! He was rescued from a box left on the side of a Hwy of 3 older kittens but we could only catch one after spending ALL afternoon trying to get all three. I'll never hear the end of this one since we were on our way to the coast to spend the day 4 wheeling with the kids. Oh well...
