My first Tablescape Thursday and Goodbye to an old Friend

I am so excited to be joining Susan, our gracious hostess from Between Naps on the Porch for Table scape Thursday. It is my first official participation. When we moved back to Georgia we purchased this table and chairs just to make do. I never cared for it. Good bye table and chairs!

Place mats and Napkins - QVC on clearance

Flatware - HSN - Colin Cowie

Glasses - K Mart

Soup Mug - Bed, Bath and Beyond - Six years ago

Plates and bread plates - QVC = 15 years ago

Candles - QVC Candle Impressions with timer

Wreaths - QVC - David Shindler

Wreaths on back of chair - Dollar Store

Although the wreath centerpieces are Christmas Wreaths, I think they look Autumnal . I am planning french onion soup which I will be featuring on Foodie Friday.

Thank you so much for stopping in. Don't forget to stop in and visit all the other table scapes with the lovely Susan at Between Naps on the Porch.

I would love it if you would leave a comment and check out my other posts.

  1. You have set a gorgeous table and I love the wreaths you have used on the table as your centrepieces because the colours are perfect for Autumn. I really love the idea of using the wreaths on the backs of your chairs too-must try that!
    Best wishes, Natasha.

  2. I love all the reds you have used and do agree with the fall feel to the bulbs around the candle--they are so warm and happy!! Can't believe you had all those wreaths for the chair--you have out-done yourself!!


  3. What a lovely table you've set. Those little wreaths are just a perfect touch. I like your table and chairs! ;)
    Be a sweetie,
