It has been a while since I was able to do a tablescape.
So, today, while working on one of the dining chairs – to match the yellow chair and with the table newly transformed..
I am so loving the look of the table along with the yellow and red chairs.
I decided it would be fun to create a cheerful tablescape.
The main characters to this tablescape are these happy chickens on the placemats! I have always loved these placemats and their color lends itself to an Autumnal setting.
Ok. Where next. Surrounding the chickens could either be apples or cherries. I decided to use the basket of faux apples in my kitchen for a centerpiece.
Above them were these jaunty roosters just begging to be invited. So along they came!
These two little iron roosters could not be left out.
I filled two of the candlesticks I made with the acorns I recently found to further add to the Autumnal feel.
For the placesettings I was wishing for dark green or black plates. How striking that would be!
I do have some red salad plates with roosters that would have fit perfectly – but, they’re hanging out in the kitchen, not wanting to be brought down.
So, I chose my everyday creamy Homer Laughlin plates and the ruby red salad plates.
Atop the salad plates I placed the dark green napkins – that were originally used as décor for my daughter’s wedding last October!
I have these sweet little apples we’ve been snacking on, so I placed one at each setting.
I chose the golden colored glassware I inherited and our everyday silverware.
This is the first tablescape I have created without a tablecloth!
I am so excited that the warmth of the table adds to the warmth of the settings.
Cheerful, warm and welcoming!
Just what a tablescape should be!
Thank you so much for your visit!
I’ve had fun and do appreciate when you pay a call!

Wishing you a very cheerful, Delightsome day!
