Not long ago I posted a picture on the Take Six Facebook page showing this table at the very beginning stage of preparation. Today I’m happy to show you the finished product. This tablescape seemed to happen almost without my assistance. It just kind of came together with no effort. It’s so fun when that happens.
Baskets work so well in fall decor. With both leaves in, our dining room table comfortable seats 10 people. This very long basket works perfectly for centerpieces on such a long table. (Note: Be sure to keep all wooden handled pitch forks away from lit candles) 😉
In anticipation of this tablescape, I spray painted a set of old, scratched chargers a “Hammered Copper” color. I needed wanted a set of chargers that matched these plates. Pretty good match eh? Would you like to see how I did it? Read HERE.
My mother gave me a few of these plates. They belonged to her mother. The pattern is “Windsor Derby” by Thos Hughes & Son Ltd, England. My mother and sister have searched many antique stores, and have found a few more plates, a platter, and one cup and saucer. They have gifted them to me for my birthday and Christmas several years. I love them!
I used the lone cup and saucer as part of the centerpiece.
I’ve shared with you all before that I have a weakness for pitchers. This is such a lovely fall one that mom gave me for Christmas last year.
I trust all our Canadian readers had a wonderful Thanksgiving this month. If you haven’t had a chance, I recommend you read the post Lisa shared called, Trashy Thanksgiving.
