Hello sweet friends!
I just found out Kathleen at her meme "Let's Dish" is having a purple themed tablescape for Fall this Wednesday; so I promptly came up with this setting, because I already had a 'purple' sort of Thanksgiving table idea for this year.
Here is my inspiration for Kathleen's party, plus, I love her tablescape challenges, I get such fun out of them and visiting around your beautiful settings as well.
Ok, here is my collaboration for "Let's Dish-Purple Autumn Table."
|I used a 'purple scarf' for the under cloth and used on top, one that's very lacy, so it can reflect on the setting the purple from under better.|
|I started setting the table with my purple chargers, white and gold Noritake dishes; purple Polish sherbet and water stems to match, along with German purple stems wine glasses.|
|I've been looking all over blogland, magazines and Pinterest; gold painted pumpkins and gourds, so I went to the cellar and dug out some dry ones I left from last year and proceeded to spray paint them and loved the result!|
|A high shot so you can see how my 'purple scarf' shows from under the lace tablecloth and picks up the hues from the purple glasses specially.|
|NO ORANGE !|
|The purple compotes and water glasses are a set and I have them in pink too, I just fell in love with them a few years ago.|
|Here I used gold candles from my C'mas stash to go with my 'gold Fall pumpkins.'|
|The wine glasses have purple stems and are German. The water glasses are Polish and are a set with the sherbets and I also have them in pink as well.|
|The cute water pitcher with purple flowers was my Mil's.|
|Oh!...I did paint some pinecones too.|
|I'm so happy this late afternoon is raining finally; there's much needed water in the river near my house that I love.|
|When it stopped raining the color became gold, or it's a reflection of the gold painted pinecones, gourds and pumpkins...who knows!|
Thank you so much sweet ladies for dropping by for a lovely and kind visit, you always make my day!
Thanking the wonderful hostesses for having me at their great parties...and specially to the ladies that support me by featuring me, I'm always so very grateful!
