ALMOST THANKSGIVING TABLESCAPE!

Oh my Goodness...only one week until Thanksgiving!  I am excited to be cooking a turkey and all the side dishes this year.
Meanwhile here is a fun Fall Table for Two!
I found two of these charger plates at the GW and they were the inspiration for this tablescape
I love the details, acorns, blue berries and leaves
This is the back side of a place mat
The leaves and pumpkins were perfect for this table
 These dark green plates were next
I have used these plates many times, the edge makes them one of my favorites
The salad plate was next and I love the colors and the pumpkin on this plate
The flatware is the bronze set I use often with fall tablescapes
The centerpiece was fairly simple
These cute S & P shakers are from Michael's this year bought with a 40% off coupon
Water and wine glasses in green and amber, both with square stems add a nice touch 
These napkins are from WalMart and the napkin rings are from Pier 1 found at a thrift shop
The fruit bowls are from a yard sale I went to while visiting my Mom in Texas...love the colors
A favorite fall serving dish
The candle is lit
The table is set
Ready for the meal to be served! 

Everything on this table was thrifted or found at a retail store on sale.  It makes me happy to set such a pretty table for such a thrifty price!

I'm joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch
Be sure to stop by and see all the lovely tablescapes!

Don't forget the link will be up Thursday evening for 
Junkin Finds Friday!  Hope to see you there!

Happy Junkin,
Linda

This table came together beautifully! I just love the GW plates. I would not have put together leaves, acorns and BLUEBERRIES, but they work fabulously!!!!!!
Such a pretty fall table.
