Tablescape Tuesday!

Welcome to Tablescape Tuesday! Sponsored by Susan at Between Naps on The Porch, it's a good way to get ideas for your own party tables or special events. This is only the second time I've been together enough to get one posted!

This is a fall tablescape, set up for a soup supper. The tablecloth is one I picked up several years ago from somewhere. It is sort of a muted fall design-the colors are not at all vibrant, just soft and subtle.


The dishes are the white dishes that my sweet friend Terri gave me.






The centerpiece is a bunch of wheat in an amber colored hurricane globe. The wheat is from Dollar Tree, as are the goblets and the hurricane globe is an after season find at Kirkland's last year.




Ideally I would use a more colorful napkin, but this is what I had, so it's what I used!!
Be sure to visit Susan't blog to see some beautiful tables! Enjoy!

Later!
Cathy

I think that white on white is so pretty and elegant. I don't think you need colored napkins at all.
Enjoyed seeing your tablescape. Have a good week.

You made me want some soup, but I know that would mean, I'd just take out any old bowl and heat some soup to pour into it. This table makes eating soup so special. laurie

The sheaf of wheat is set off perfectly by the amber color of the huricane. Reminds me of the line "amber waves of grain".
