Casual fall/Thanksgiving tablescape

After I swapped out the pillows on the back porch and replaced the decor with some fall things, I set up a casual tablescape on the porch table. I think it would be lovely for a Thanksgiving brunch.


I picked up the plates from Target on clearance and the felt pumpkin mats at the Dollar Tree before Halloween. I had intended to set a Halloween table but it never happened.


I had no idea what I was going to do for the centerpiece but I grabbed some things  I had on hand and it came together. I picked up a couple of garlands from Michael's at 80% off because I was looking for filler for a tray for the inside (details on that later.) I had this garland left over and I've had this brass Party Lite candle holder for years.
I don't care for brass much now but I covered it with the garland so it works. I placed some ball candles in the holders and  a crackled hurricane in the center with another candle and some fall colored gems (also picked up on clearance at Michael's during the shopping for the other project.) I mixed up the colors of the ball candles because I wanted to use the orange but didn't have four of them. I'm making what I have work.


I made these napkin rings a couple of years ago with paper towel tubes, scrapbook paper and felt leaves cut with a die.



I'm pretty please with how it came together.

Just a heads up. I'll be having a Black Friday Sale in my etsy shop November 23, 2012 to November 25, 2012. Take 20% off any purchase those three days with coupon code HOLIDAY20. It will be a great time to get handmade Christmas cards, tags, and gifts.

I'll be sharing my tablescape here and at Tablescape Thursday.
