Everyone signs up to bake, or bring something. At my table, several of the women volunteered to set the table with paper products. I am bringing the napkins, a tablecloth and the centerpiece.
I wanted to set the whole table but others wanted to help.
So I decided to show you how I would set the table if I had my way!
Of course, my brain started to run away with all kinds of ideas!
The church has huge round tables that seat ten of us.
I couldn't set a table for ten, so I am showing you a vignette.
I guess you can say, this is how I build some of my tables.
Especially if I want to use a particular dish or tablecloth.
I decided to use this gold embroidered square table cloth.
I bought it at The Thrift store in Houston.
It has been hanging in my tablecloth closet for a few months.
My centerpiece is a cake plate that sits on the top of a fancy gold mirror and
holds a faux pumpkin filled with flowers, gourds and pumpkins.
I set the pumpkin on a string of leaves so it doesn't look bare.
I decided this year, I am in love blue with pumpkin.
So I would use my Blue Garland plates by Haviland.
I tend to go dressy when setting a table and decorating.
And to keep the table a little casual, pumpkin dishes for dessert!
I used a few holiday decorations to set the mood.
A green depression plate with a glass pumpkin on top.
I bought the glass pumpkins at the CTS in Albany, NY a few years back.
A little leaf dish purchased at The Thrift store.
and salt & pepper pumpkins
These are the napkins I am bringing for our brunch on a pumpkin plate.
I bought these at Wal-Mart a few days ago.
And the last picture is of the whole vignette !
Every time I set a table, by the time I am finished I have changed something or used something different. Its part of the fun. If it's not fun why tablescape!
I am looking forward to this brunch and my relaxing morning with the ladies.
Hope you enjoyed my faux brunch table.
Come back and visit again!
Blessings My Friend,
