This is the time of year the squirrels are busy running back and forth with nuts in their mouths. I love sitting at the computer watching them scamper back and forth looking for a place to hide their bounty.
I first saw these squirrel plates in an ad on FB, so the next time I was near a Pier One Imports store I ran in and picked up half a dozen. They didn't have the dinner plates that matched...was told to order them online! The sales people in the store, I most frequent, are the rudest ladies of any store I shop at.
The tablecloth is one I have had for ages, it came from a thrift store years ago...I think it is actually a shawl. The rich autumn colors went well with the colors in the salad plates. I couldn't find the napkins I really wanted to use, so grabbed these as they had some of the same colors as the cloth. They are held with grapevine napkin rings.
I started the plate stack with woven chargers, a white dinner plate and lastly the salad plate. I wanted the salad plate to be seen immediately.
The glassware is an amber iced tea. The flatware is the trusty, simple stainless.
I had to have a squirrel as the centerpiece so I put her up on a pedestal flanked by clear candle holders with acorns/candles.
My daughter collects squirrel things, so I am always on the lookout for for them!
Thanks for visiting today, hope you will return next time.
