TABLESCAPE TUESDAY - Plaid in a Pinch Tablescape =)

Hi all!

I'm so sorry it's been so long!  We've had a very busy couple of weeks, and we have been out of town for several Sundays, where I'd normally make a tablescape for our "Sunday Family Dinner".

However, I was able to capture a quick tablescape done for a recent Sunday Family Dinner.  Just a simple fall table with plaid.  I didn't have a lot of time to put this together because we had been gone for the weekend to celebrate my husband's Birthday.  I got home, with just enough time to fix dinner and set up a quick table.


I have to say, I LOVE plaid.  I always have.  I'm not sure what it is, but the right combos of plaid are just awesome to me! 

I also love the color combos of a dark blue, mahogany and beige.  It's just so pleasing to the eye.

So when I found these Pillow Shams at Goodwill a while back, I thought they'd look nice on a tablescape.

So now that fall is here, I thought this would be a nice simple country table in a pinch.

Here's a quick plate breakdown:

-Brown Chargers from Michaels
-White Dinner plates from Dollar Tree
-The Salad Plates are a mix of magenta Better Homes and Garden Plates that I found at Goodwill.  I only found 3, so I alternated them with some blue rimmed plates I got when I first got married.
-The Desert Plate/Saucers were a Goodwill find as well.
-The Magenta napkins were another thrift store find, as well as the wooden "plaid" napkin rings.  =)

For the Centerpiece I used a simple floral that I found at a garage sale, two square glass candleholders from Dollar Tree, My white pillar candleholders from Ikea, and a leaf plate and pumpkin bowl from Goodwill.

Well, that's about it for another TABLESCAPE TUESDAY!  Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!
