A Fall Table for Two (+ a John-Heathism)

Table Counter for two?

Lenox Eternal pattern from
too many years ago to remember.
Cheap stemware - ditto.
Runner from Home Goods.
Charger, leaf plate, napkins and rings from Wallyworld.
Beaded garland around candle holders from Michaels.

A possible spider infestation.

The black pumpkin-head straws (which also make really good whistles) are of the last few I have left from a purchase of about a thousand (no joke) of them ten years ago. It's to the point I'm sure people refer to me as, "Oh yeah. I know her. She's that weird lady that gives us the same whistles every year. I've got 6 black and 4 orange ones now."

This post is a participant in Tablescape Thursday and
Blogging Bloopers @ Between Naps on the Porch

Tootles, ya'll.


P.S. Spot any bloopers in the pictures above? Well, obviously the placement of my flatware is not correct. I did it like that more for fun. But, in my rush to post pictures for my first tablescape I didn't notice part of my kitchen sink showing in one picture. Yep. Kinda tacky.

P.S.S. I'm sure in your family, as in most families (including mine), the sweet little creature to the left is called a wooly worm. Well, you are all wrong. We have all been wrong. My little boy has shown me the error of my ways, so to speak. Did you know its name is Willy? Yes, at our little Ponderosa we have "Willy" Worms. Just this morning John-Heath was begging to bring Willy inside. And pray tell what was he going to do with him? Why, "Put him in a jar, of course."

Cute cute tablescape. And I LOVE the name John-Heath. Too cute. Jeb is named after my grandfather--his initials are J.E.B. So glad I finally had a boy so the name wasn't lost!

What a sweet table setting. I love the garland woven around the candleholders. Very pretty.

Hi Tyla,
I think your tablescape looks wonderful! Love the colors and the pumpkins! Wish my bloopers was so subtle. :) Happy New Year to you and your family!
P.S. John Heath sounds sooo precious. I like the term Willy Worms better. :)

I thought it looked cute! And honestly, I didn't notice the placement or the sink, proving that we are our own worst critics. I know that for a fact. LOL!
