Tablescape Thursday~Sugar Maple Tablescape

It certainly has been a long time since I've posted a tablescape. My camera broke and I purchased a new one for my son's Make a Wish Trip. I created this tablescape on November 1st and little did I know it would be the last one I'd make for a while. As most of your are aware, my Dear Son got the swine flu and a viral pneumonia just one week before his Make a Wish trip to celebrate his 18th birthday at Disney World in Florida. Instead, he was on a ventilator. After 25 days in the ICU, we came home on Thanksgiving Day. We have a lot to be thankful for. I created this tablescape on November 1st. I call it my "Sugar Maple" tablescape after my favorite fall tree, the sugar maple. I love the bright orange leaves on the tree. The roses remind me of that tree.

I started this tablescape with a white tablecloth and then a tulle overlay. Two of the place settings have mirrored silver chargers and two have none. I wanted to break the tablescape up a bit and chose to alternate the chargers.

The place settings include my white Spode Mansard place settings. I uses white cotton napkins tied with a white satin and sheer chiffon ribbon. I added some fall berries for color.

I especially love this photograph. I love the crystal and the candles. I am able to add frames to the photos with my new camera although I did not get a chance to add them all.

More tablescape photos.

I used a combination of votive candles along with tealight candles in crystal candleholders. I inverted some hobnail juice glasses to add some height to some of the tealights and to showcase the hobnail glasses. I think those are beautiful.

I just love the look of a tablescape with candles. It's always so romantic. I love how a beautiful tablescape instantly relaxes you when you walk in the room. I think it promotes a different conversation with someone than when a table isn't decorated.

Notice the crystal decanter. I just love the shape and the etched glass.

I hope you enjoyed my fall tablescape. I have some Christmas ones planned beginning next week. Please stop by Susan's blog, "Between Naps on the Porch" for other lovely tablescapes.

Elegant, just lovely! It is the type of table setting that a ballerina would be comfortable sitting at...magical.

I really like how the roses are the only color, it just makes them pop like crazy.

This is an idea I'm going to steal!
