Dianne's Creative Table

I am inspired by light, all things natural, reusing previously loved items, and bargains!

A Snowy Eve

Even though it was raining, humid and in the 70's I ended up with a white Christmas on my table. 
I knew for months I wanted to use the lighted paper trees from IKEA, but wasn't sure about anything else. As usual, everything came together at the last minute.

Mr Creative cut all the evergreen he could find from our yard and I pulled everything green and white I had and my sisters and I start putting it together.  At first I didn't want to use the deer plates, but upon my sister's urging, we tried them and once I saw them on the table, they were perfect! 
Charger from Pier 1, white plates unmarked, salad plates are Pottery Barn and napkin rings from World Market. White striped tumblers from Old Time Pottery.




     The lights under the greenery, twinkled all night.

Another wonderful Christmas in the books.  Hope your's was merry and bright! Joining Tablescape Thursday

The Falling Leaves

As I wrote the title for this post the melody of that song, that my Mother loved,  started running through my head.  
This year our Thanksgiving was very small.  We expected 6, but ended up with only 5.  I was happy to have a smaller group.  

I first saw this cloche at the Queen of Hearts in Buford, GA in early Oct, but I resisted buying it.  A return girl's shopping trip in Nov resulted in a purchase!  I really love the size.  

Oak leaves gathered from our tree and some hedge apples for simple centerpiece.
Pheasants from a consignment store in Basalt, Co. 

I loved these light when I found them, but didn't realize until I got them home that they have 8 different ways to display the lights.  Some are mind numbing, but most of them create a lovely focal point for the table.  I am now hot and heavy into Christmas, but wanted to post my fall table before it was too late.
