Wood Slice Chargers in a Farmhouse Tablescape

I know I just showed you a tablescape a couple of days ago,   but I couldn't resist sharing the one I did today using wood slice chargers.   Hope you're not tired of seeing the family dining room,,,,lol!

Have a seat and let's take a look around the table.....

I've seen lot's of wood slices in the stores,   but these were the first ones I'd seen that had touches of  pale pink in the grain.     

I found them at Kirkland's on sale for $6.50 each if you have been looking for some to use in your Farmhouse style tablescapes.    You can also stand them up on an easel and use them in your vignettes.

I borrowed some of the pretty rose patterned  dishes from the vignette in a vintage strainer on the kitchen counter.    

I used my favorite cotton napkins in my tablescape.

I picked out one of my vintage quilts  to use as the tablecloth.

Then,   my favorite part of a tablescape.....making the centerpiece.    I don't know if I've mentioned before that years ago,  I created centerpieces for a local interior design company.    

My container is a rustic wood storage box.     I added a bow made from chicken wire.....yes chicken wire.    I put it in the picture so you could see how it comes.....on a the fall isle at Hobby Lobby.

I also tucked in a few pieces of the chicken wire "ribbon" in a couple of places in my arrangement.

Next to the centerpiece,   I have a metal measuring cup with a rose bouquet.    AND......since it's a Farmhouse tablescape,   I included two baby Jackalopes.

I am beginning to accept the fact that fall will be here soon.......

Which season is your favorite?

I'm not finished with the vignette on the buffet in front of the window,   but I will share it with you when I'm done!


  1. Penny,
    Good Morning!!!
    Love those chargers!!! So unique!! Another lovely tablescape!!

  2. Penny, Love your tablescape, and the little Jackalopes are adorable!!

  3. Adorable, so simple but actually makes the table look rustic and delicate at the same time.

  4. It all looks so lovely but expect nothing less from you. Those napkins are so pretty I would not want to wipe my mouth with them!!

  5. I love those wood chargers with the pink taint in the wood, I've seen some pretty wood like this.
    Your dining room is gorgeous and hey! We cannot change it for every post either, lol..

  6. So pretty! I love the quilt as a tablecloth. How creative is that chicken wire ribbon?!? Very neat! It looks so cute as a bow.

  7. What a great idea! I have a couple of bins of wood slices that we used for decor at my daughters wedding. Now I know what I can do with some of them. I'm a newbie garden, etc. blogger and would love it if you'd pop in and let me know what you think.

  8. I just ordered a rectangular piece of wood for this specific purpose. What I like most about pieces of wood like this is that you can easily turn it into a sign to hang on your wall, too!

  12. Those are so pretty Penny and they bring a rustic element to the table, a nice contrast to all the pretty dishes.

  13. I love the wood slice chargers. Unfortunately, I've never seen wooden chargers in any stores. These would be perfect for my fall and winter décor. Thanks for sharing on Sunday's Best.

  14. This is so delicate and pretty and the chargers are very nice.
