In keeping with my fall decor theme this week, I've displayed a fall tablescape in the formal dining room.
Here is the front view..
..and the back view.
These plates were a birthday gift to me this year from one of my dearest friend, Laura.
They are very old and trimmed in 18k gold! When I began thinking of a tablescape, I knew I wanted to use these beautiful dishes and incorporate blue into the color scheme of golds, copper, and rusts..
See the sweet little birds? They were 90% off at a craft store after Christmas!! And the 'candle holders' are amber wine glasses from the thrift. I got two of them for a buck!!
Trimming out the napkins are blue Christmas ornaments, and blue 'netting' is tucked into the centerpeice.
Adorning the candle holder is a velvet Christmas ornament I got for a song at Tuesday Morning.
So here's the table in different lighting...the candle holder in the center is also a gift from Laura. She finds the coolest stuff for me!!
The pumpkins sitting on the plates are from the Dollar Tree..Silverware from the thrift and etched wine glasses are heirlooms from my mom..
I swagged some garland and acorn lights across the buffet.

The pilgrims Steve and I picked up when we visited the Berkshires in Mass. a couple of years ago. I just love them!
The view of the formal dining room. Thanks for visiting~I had so much fun decorating with those beautiful dishes as my inspiration! Thanks, Laura!
