Tablescape Tuesday


Hi,
and
welcome
to another
Tablescape
Tuesday
which
is always
hosted
by our
fabulous
Susan
at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/. Make sure you go and visit to view all of the participants today.

Now today I must tell you something...I've cheated! This is not my table, nor my dishes and not even my pumpkin! I didn't have time to put together my own tablescape - so I cheated! I found this wonderful website http://www.crossroadscottage.biz/pages/novembertablescape.php and just borrowed this great fall tablescape to show to you.


I dearly love this little round table. I have a round table in my breakfast room, so this sort of counts. The chairs are different, but that's okay, we're supposed to be looking at the beauties on the top of the table. Oh, but just take a peep at the cute white cabinets in the background.


See the white underplates? Well, I have white plates, this could be my table. It's quite cute how the orange napkin is a buffer between the white underplate and the green one.

I'm not really sure why there is a twig nest sitting on the plate - I suppose it's for effect, but I love how the placecard is attached with the colorful ribbon. I could do this, don't you think?



The sprinkling of fall leave on the tablecloth (gasp! It's plastic!) and the see - thru leaves look cute placed around the edge of the plate.



I do believe my favorite thing about this fall tablescape is the pumpkin!! Look at this, the pumpkin is tied with this gorgeous ribbon and is sitting inside a basket filled with moss and more leaves! We all could do this, couldn't we?


Look closely at the details of the fallness tucked inside the basket!


This is just precious, don't you think? I am a little disappointed though...food must not have been served here...there are no forks, spoons or knives on the table! I know Mr. Precious would not go for this! He loves food with his tablescapes. ;)



I'm begging you, please don't be too hard on me for cheating just this once!!


You are all sweeties,





I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~




Your Cheatin' Heart



Your cheatin' heart will make you weep

You'll cry and cry and try to sleep

But slee-eep won't come the whole night through

Your cheatin' heart will tell on you

When tears come down like fallin' rain

You'll toss around and call my name

You'll wa-alk the floor the way I do

Your cheatin' heart will tell on you

Your chea-eatin' heart will pine some day

And crave the love you threw away

The ti-ime will come when you'll be blue

Your cheatin' heart will tell on you

When tears come down like fallin' rain

You'll toss around and call my name

You'll wa-alk the floor the way I do

Your cheatin' heart will tell on you

~ sung by Hank Williams

  6. You are such a doll Shelia~ and never fail to bring a smile to my face. :) This table scape is beautiful, I have a cream colored hutch and have been considering paiting my table the same....this gives me some inspiration. Isn't that what tablescape tuesday is all about? I'm cracking up over your cheatin' heart note song today.

    Have a wonderful day!
    Hugs~ J.

  7. That is such a pretty autumn tablescape. It doesn't matter that it isn't yours as I think the point is to share loveliness, which you always do.

  10. Oh the music, I have got to get the CD! I am sure I have that piece somewhere. I can start picking it out on the piano and have it down in a few days, but then my family will be sick of it... No they won't, DD has hymn Festival Sat and all we listen to is her music for that competition! LOL! I have to play something to off set that. ;-)

    Honey, you go ahead and cheat away. Your table scape is beautiful, but I'm with you. Needs flatware and food! I mean, what is Chole Dawn & Mr. Precious going to eat!

  11. Shelia, I agree with bj. You are too cute. When I read your posts I just break out in a big smile.

    No this tablescape is not cheating. You found this and it has good ideas and in fact you would have done it better. Without doubt.

    Sounds like Mr Precious is sensible, he likes a tablescape with cutlery. Its always good to have a practical man by your side isnt it? He he. Does he read your blog too? Love visiting you and ahhhh that lovely music again!! Have a great day! Thanks for being just too gorgeous for words!

  12. Good Morning Sheila!

    Have a wonderful day!
    Hugs,
    Kathi :)

  15. Shelia how could anyone be mad at you? You always bring a smile to my face everytime I visit!

    Thanks for sharing this pretty tablescape!

  16. I like this table with two exceptions. No to plastic and no to sticks anywhere around my food, presuming that food and eating implements will be forthcoming. You presented it well, and I sigh a sigh of relief at the discovery that you're not perfect. (sigh)

  17. That's not cheating - that's using your head for inspiration! And you always give me inspiration. Thanks. Sally

  28. Hi Shelia

    I'm in Diane's "Trash To Treasure" challenge today but I droppped by to say hello, and I have to say I love this tablescape too! I wish I had white furniture like that and the pumpkin idea is charming --I think I'll do that for Tahnksgiving Day.
    Hugs, Pat

  29. Sheila I am so glad you have a tiny bit of a 'cheatin' heart today. We need to give ourselves a break and more often than not. Posting everyday is a stressful thing at times. The tablescape is cute as can be but lets be real. Do we want to eat a birds nest. I do realize it is a name thingy but it could reside on the table couldn't it? smiling. And you are right, where is the silverware? Maybe we will have finger food. I like finger food. Let's try to be fair here. LOL.

    Love your post and your song dear one.

    Hugs...Jeanne

  31. Not a cop out at all my dear! That's the problem, everyone I know has already received all the awards. You have to get up pretty early in the morning to be the first giver of the award and I was off sitting in the Hawaii sun so I missed that boat! I just wanted you to know that you are very deserving.
    Hugs, Bridget

  32. Your song choice for this post is making me giggle..and it's a cute table..plastic and all...but I AIN'T eatin no sticks!! I don't care how cute the table is set!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hi Sheila, Looks beautiful any way you slice it. Great post! ~Warmly, Melissa

  34. I enjoyed your interpretation of each detail in the table setting...and it is so much fun to see how you interjected how your own pieces were represented in the various aspects of the setting!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Whether it is your table or not, I love it. I would love something like that on my table for Thanksgiving. Thanks so much for sharing the pictures.

    take care,
    Dawn

  36. Oh my, you are very bad...LOL!! The table looks lovely though.
    And you always put a smile on my face when I see your default picture. Thank You! ; )

  37. I'm so glad you "cheated", or I would never have seen this darling tablescape. I love the simple idea of the bow around the pumpkin! What a simple way to make a big splash! laurie

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm with Laurie, I'm glad you cheated too. I love the bow around the pumpkin. I'm with you on the bird's nests, looks like they would crumble all in the plate and the guests would be eating wood crumbs! He He. I do like the tablescape though, it's very pretty! Kristen

  39. Your cheatin' heart didn't tell on you, you told on yourself. But then, I think our hearts always tell on us in the end. It is what makes us do the "right" thing.
    You "borrowed" something that shows real taste. The leaves on the plate are in good keeping with a Fall theme. The green bread and butter plate coordinates really well. Congrats on what you chose to "borrow".

  40. Sheila, You did a great job finding this wonderful tablescape! LOL! It is beautiful and provided lots of inspiration!

    Hope your week is going well so far! ~Rhonda :)

  41. A cheater and a fallen woman! Goodness me! Whatever does Mr. Precious think of that? lol

    I'm glad you "cheated" because this is a lovely table! And you're right, we could do so much of this! I like looking at arrangements that I could easily copy. Thanks for sharing!

  42. AH ! who cares if you cheated Sheila. Sh-h-h-h we won't tell too many. It's a cute table to look at anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Shelia, you crack me up, girl! I am stealing this idea of ribbon around the pumpkin...that's sooo cute! And the twig place card holders...very clever. I'm with you though on the lack of flatware...what's up with that. I just saw twig placemats and twig flatware on a blog...they would be perfect with this! :-) Great post, as always! Susan

  44. Hi Glenda! Well, I know I told on myself! I just tried to find an appropriate song!! I'm always a silly.
    Thanks for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  46. I want to have a light lunch at the table and savor a cup of tea after with some great warm chocolate chip cookies..WOW! thats one of my goals this year--to continue to learn to set wonderful tables to enjoy our meals.

  47. I love this tablescape, but I agree about the birdsnest...although it's pretty w/ it!

I'm so pleased you would come to see me and so please leave me a comment and I'll do my very best to respond back to you. Be a sweetie...Shelia :)
