More Autumn Tablescape

I stuck to my plan today – I cleaned, I dusted, I vacuumed, I mopped, and the most fun part was I put out some fall decorations!! :)

Here are my Irish Belleek kids again – doing their part in celebrating the fall season. [Ivory Spring’s HOLIDAY TRADITION — I always read “Of Plymouth Plantation” by William Bradford during the couple of months leading up to Thanksgving]:

I decided to do something more “grand” with them, starting with an Italian gilded mirror that never got hung, and some fall “scraps” I have used over and over again over the years:

This is the final look, and the centerpiece is displayed on our breakfast table:

I decided to use the rest of the scraps for the display on the dining table. See if you could spot some usual suspects from this post:

This is my 2006 Thanksgiving Menu Card that I had done by hand-calligraphy to let my guests know what we were having for dinner that night:

Right about this time, my camera battery was running out of steam. I had to stop taking pictures and save the battery juice for uploading the pictures. I will have more pictures to show you later this week. Meanwhile, HAPPY FALL, everyone! :)
