I hosted a dinner party (mommy night) for my friends tonight & did this little fall tablescape. Let me just start off with a little disclaimer...first, this 'looked' better in my head than it turned out in reality. Second, I got the supplies and even did a trial run on our dining table which is a small square shape. Well, I made a sort of last minute decision to put one of the leaves in the table to make it bigger (even though there was only going to be 4 of us) so that we would have plenty of room & not feel cramped. Well, once I got everything on the 'bigger' table, I noticed the scale was a little off & the candlesticks/candles looked a little small for the table. Of course, I wasn't going to go buy all new stuff, so I just left it but I was sad that my table didn't look as good as I hoped. :( Anyway, its perfect for a small table, though. And I got most of the stuff from the Dollar Tree (love that place!) I already had the fall dishes and cloth napkins, but I bought the faux leaves (3 packs), candlesticks & candles at the dollar tree and the little pumpkins were 2/$1 at the grocery store.
I wanted to 'dress up' my plain old dollar candles, so I used a little raffia and some faux leaves to give them a little fall touch :)
Is this not the cutest little white pumpkin you have even seen? I love the twisty little vine :)
My table might not have been what I wanted, but my party went great and I had a blast with my friends! I made a yummy, easy taco soup. I think I am going to post the recipe since it is a wonderful fall dish and did I mention it was easy?
Linking up to this awesome party!
