Your table looks gorgeous! I love your pictures too.
Thanks for stopping by yesterday- That really was a coincidence about our sky/clouds posts wasn't it! We got heaps of rain eventually yesterday and the sky is blue and gorgeous today. The grass is already looking greener!
Best wishes, NM.

Whoever gave away those beautiful green dishes should have their head examined! What a lucky find for you. I'm GREEN with envy! :-)

My Big Lots didn't have those pumpkin tureens...I checked several places. :( I'm jealous over that, too.

Will you go shopping FOR me???

Lori (All That Splatters) said...

I love your tablesetting. The dishes are beautiful! I had to laugh when you apologized for not ironing the runner! I spent awhile ironing my tablecloth and by the time I had set the table, one whole side was already wrinkled from me leaning across the table for something! LOL Shouldn't have worried about it - yours looks wonderful!

Sandi @the WhistleStop Cafe said...

Beautiful table setting! I'll do the cooking~ you set the table:-)

Cass @ That Old House said...

Now I knew from the first picture that I was going to LOVE this table -- and I do. That you did it with so many thrifty finds just makes it all that much more exciting and charming! I love it all -- colors, dishes, glassware -- and really LOVE that flatware, too. I keep looking for something similar... no luck!
Love the big pumpkin too. GREAT buy!
Loved this all.
Happy Halloween!

I love the green dishes. I wish I could find ones like that at the thrift store; and the Penney's tablecloth is a wonderful find. You are a gal after my own heart, finding such bargains.

What a lovely table. I love those dishes.

Star said...

The table looks wonderful, but where is the food? or doesn't that matter for this exercise? Interesting to see how you do it over there. I love the pumpkin and the colours go so well together. The plates look very chunky and heavy to lift.
Blessings, Star

Chari said...

Hi Kammy...

Ohhh my...this is truly one of the prettiest autumn tablescapes that I've seen all season, my friend! It's absolutely gorgeous...sooo prefect! I love your green dishes...wherever did you find them? Ohhh...and that beautiful autumn tablecloth...can't believe that you found that beauty for just a $1.99...great treasure find!!! I had never thought about folding a tablecloth like this...I love the idea that it can be used as a table runner this way!!! Girl, I'll be stealing that terrific idea! Hehe! One of my favorite things about your autumn tablescape is that fabulous 3 tiered black tray filled full of pretty pumpkins and gourds...that really does make for a beautiful centerpiece! Love it!!!

Well my friend, I always..always love your tablescapes!!! You do some of the prettiest ones in all of blogland! You're such a creative and talented lady!!! Thank you for sharing your fabulous Autumn table with us!!!

Love ya,
Chari
