Tablescape Thursday/It's a Woodsy Theme!


This week I wanted to go a little more outdoorsey but not Christmas like. It took a couple of tries, but I like the way it turned out. The white plates and saucers are from a dumpster dive.

My son's bedroom here at home is in a kind of "cabin" theme, so I borrowed a few things from there. Beside his bed is an old wash stand that holds the above deer and tree - year round.
I had a couple of ways to go, but chose to go with 2 napkin rings of fish.....

which are actually shower curtain rings...... Clearance at Walmart...

and 2 with bears on them. Which just happen to go with the salt and pepper shakers from Grandma's collection that are....fish and bears.

My son and daughter in law gave me these great martini glasses for Christmas, and I LOVE to drink lemon drop martini's in them. They are so elegant and light.

The deer have such an innocent look on their face.

I found this little log cabin for 25 cents at a garage sale. The green tablecloth and red and green napkins you will probably see often.


Please join me as I go over to visit Susan at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ and Leigh at http://lbratina.blogspot.com/ as they host Tablescape Thursday and Thrifty Thursday, respectively.

  10. Great ideal, very unusual. I liked all the details, makes you feel like you want to go sit in front of the fire and drink hot chocolate. Gives you a warm and cozy feeling.

    How clever of you to use shower curtain rings on your napkins....brilliant.
    I think you succeeded beautifully in creating an "outdoorsey but not Christmas" tablescape.

  25. Great tablescape; I loved it. I would like to see your son's bedroom!! You would have to tell me the use of the shower rings for napkin rings; I had some I loved (frogs) that didn't work well and I never thought of using them for napkins!
