Time for Tablescape Thursday......thank you to Susan at,http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ , who always shows us how
well it is done! Check out all the other posters this week, who never cease to amaze me and inspire me with their tablescapes!
HEADS UP TOO; GO TO http://www.ginnys.com/home.jsp, THEY HAVE MONOGRAMMED DINNERWARE AND YOU CAN GET MONOGRAMMED NAPKINS THERE AS WELL!
This week at Castle Queen, a little bit of old silver bling , some songs of nature to be sung ( sort of), copper and black just because they are pretty together.
This is the tablescape I wanted the curly willow branches for but then I can think of several things I would like curly willow for.
Since I didn't have any "real" curly willow branches, I made my own faux ones out of some copper wire I had laying around in the garage.
Then I cut out from old sheet music books paper leaves to adorn them with and the rest just sort of evolved around those with the tablescape process.
(Click on photos to enlarge and see closer. I think my photos look better seen closer, LOL!!)
Our wedding gift cream damask napkins with Walmart copper pumpkin holders,copper colored plate chargers from Target, "Hayride Coupe" black transfer ware dinner and dessert plates from Marshalls, Mary Carol bird patterned muffin or roll plate from Joyworks gift shop, our everyday Oneida "Caitlynn" flatware from Macys, black and crystal stemware both thrift store finds, black table cloth from Marshalls. Most all this stuff I already had basically or found recently to use for this year.
I used either copper pumpkins or copper birds nests as an accent on top just for fun!
Anyway, these little pierced English silver dishes were a recent thrift store find.
I thought they made the perfect accessories for this tablescape and to hold the copper
The center of it all.......
The centerpiece; using tarnished ( I sort of like it that way) silver tray as base, silver champagne
bucket as vase, a fleur de lis piece I had, copper, cream and silver faux pumpkins and gourds, copper votive candles, silver birds and copper nests, and copper wire curly willow branches with
sheet music leaves.
The table by dim lighting from the chandelier.
Even the side board or buffet is decorated.
A faux cream pumpkin sets beside the sideboard with faux music book leaves and copper
upholstery tack monogram.
A mixture of things I had, things I made, things I inherited all make for a great display.
My brother's found it thrown away when playing when we lived in England.
My mother saved it and now I have it.
