~ tft tablescape: october



I literally can not believe it's October.  I must admit, I had a hard time getting inspired for this table. In the end, I remembered the Gien plates with leaves, and they were perfect.



I rediscovered these bowls when I recently saw them at DeVane's in Winter Park. I've had mine for years and they fit in nicely with this table. The center bowl is the same line. ..



I've had those mosaic votives forever and can't remember where I got them...
  




The napkins are from Number Four Eleven... I love the two toned monogram!

The tortoise glasses are from Material Possessions in Chicago, however there are lots of affordable options like this one.







As I said, the Gien salad plates served as the inspiration for this October table. I believe this pattern is discontinued, however I have seen them on Etsy and eBay. The white plates are from a trip to France. The flatware is from Material Possessions in Chicago.


Although I wasn't feeling inspired when I started this table, I was totally in the spirit by the end!

Happy October!

Jan,
Love all of your inspiring table-scapes. Love them clothed and also natural, like this one with the table showing. Funny, I did the same bare table for our Saturday night Oktoberfest dinner party. I loved polishing our table.
Love all your pretty collections!
