I just can’t believe it is already October! From now until the first of the year, time just seems to fly by! And I have so many fun things planned. I better seriously get my time management skills honed!
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. And I have some fabulous giveaways from sponsors who are very involved in this important cause. I am so happy to be working with them and hosting some giveaways to promote Breast Cancer Awareness Month. So, make sure to enter the giveaway at the end of this post!
Here is my thrifty tablescape for October!
Sorry for the blurry pic. I started with these deep plum placemats. I got a set of 4 of them for .35 cents. They were .71 cents but, I bought them and most of the rest of the items on this tablescape on 50% off day at the thrift store.
These beautiful rich colored fruit plates were originally from Pier 1 Imports (according to the makers mark on back). I only have 2 of them. They were in a metal decorative plate holder I found at the thrift store. So, for he two dinner plates and the holder, I paid $1.35.
I decided to use these ceramic duck napkin rings because around this area we are seeing a lot of ducks out. In our little city, ducks have the right of away. There are heavy fines for hitting any duck around here. I bought a set of 6 of these for $1.00. The gold napkins were a clearance at either Walmart of the Christmas Tree Shops years ago.
For the centerpiece I used a bamboo table runner (a gift years ago) and a large square wicker-ish placemat that I purchased at a thrift store a year or so ago (set of 4 for about $1.00). I placed my hand carved old bowl on top. This wooden bowl was my grandmothers. She always used it to hold fruit and nuts at Christmas.
On the other side of the wood bowl I used two old thrifted wood candlesticks, thrifted candles and hung thrifted purple, gold and orange tassels from them. And just because I thought the color was so pretty and perfect for this table, I included a beautiful purple eggplant that we just got from one of the local produce vendors at the market.
