Tablescape Thursday and Giveaway Reminder

I am leaving for Southern California to spend a few days with my son and daughter-in-love, and attending Amy's baby's getting close! She's due December 15th~I can hardly wait!!
So...I am running a repeat of  a tablescape I did last year and thought maybe you'd like this idea for place cards. You could get started making them well in advance for the holidays!
I made ATC's with each person's initial on them and placed them on their plate. Then they took them home with them...

I layered a large bolt of toile fabric over a gold tablecloth...just bunched it up and arranged it. Used my blue plates on top of gold chargers.

Napkins were a thrift store find, and napkin rings were a birthday gift from a friend years ago..(thanks Sheri!)
Used my handpainted wine glasses that I painted with holly berries and pine cones..I always change them out from the floral ones I use in the summer.
Be sure to visit Between Naps on the Porch for other wonderful tablescape ideas!
And a little reminder of my can enter on THIS POST and the winner will be notified the evening of October 7th!
Here's a peek at what I'm offering:

I'll be back next week!!
