Tablescape Thursday – Eggplant and Pumpkins


Again this week the tablescape is at the breakfast table in kitchen. The color scheme has deep hues to go along with the cooler weather we have been having here.
The table cover is a plaid in green, yellow, and red. Red quilted round placemats are set with white dinner plates, green cabbage plates and white pumpkin bowls. Yellow napkins and Towle stainless flatware complete the place settings.

The centerpiece includes a large white pumpkin covered serving bowl, a green ceramic candle holder, and a Fitz and Floyd Eggplant covered dish, set amid brown hydrangeas.


This post is linked to Tablescape Thursday. Please Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for links to many more table settings.and to join in this weekly blog event. I am also linking to Leigh's "Thrifty Thursday" at Tales From Bloggeritaville. Please visit her for links to all the participants.


This tablesetting also depended largely on bargains that I found in discount stores, local thrift stores, etc.
The round tablecloth cost $3.00, while the napkins and the place mats were 25 cents each at a local thrift store.



Wedgwood "Edme" Dinner plates – local thrift store - $3.25 for 3 dinner plates, 2 bread and butter plates along with one cream soup bowl and saucer.
Pinheiro Bordallo Cabbage Leaf Dessert Plates – TJ Maxx and Marshalls $7.99 each; Individual salad bowls – from TJ Maxx
Fostoria brown "Virginia" Goblets – Six for $5.00 at flea market Lenox "Summer Terrace" candle holder made in Portugal – Ebay Best Offer.
Towle "English Shell" Stainless flatware – From Ebay and Replacements Ltd. At very reasonable prices.
White pumpkin soup tureen and bowls – T.J. Maxx $5.99 each for small bowls.

Thanks for stopping by. I enjoy reading your comments.
