Owls & Babies Breath

I usually do a table scape on Wednesday because I love to join Susan's party at Between Naps on the Porch.  She hosts a party every Thursday...tons of inspiration for your sure to drop by and visit her!
 Yesterday when I was at the grocery store, I saw the prettiest big bundles of  babies breath  (4.99...can you believe it!).  So, I picked a bundle up and started running ideas in my head about my tablescape for this week's party.
I decided to set the table in the kitchen ......
with some gorgeous rose plates and coffee cups.
I used a rose patterned table cloth and layered an antique cream lace cloth over the top.  

 I have a pink tea cup themed table runner that I made from fabric that HL has....I use this fabric a lot because I love it!
I put the  bouquet of babies breath in a vintage pitcher....and for a little whimsey, I added a "cookies" sign to the vignette.

I decorated the ledge that is right by the table with some pumpkins and owls.   The glittery 'FALL" letters came from the $1 bin at Michaels

Here are just.....

a few....

random pictures of my fall table.

To see if I liked it better.... I  switched the pitcher that was on the table with the pink pumpkin that was on the ledge.  Didn't like it as well, so I switched them back.

It's just a few week til Thanksgiving, so I am starting to run some ideas thru my head about our Thanksgiving Table!  I also have started to pick up a few non perishable items that are on the menu.....does anyone else do that too?

Happy Fall!
