Repost of A Fall Table and Embellished Garland!

OMGoodness, I have been dying to share this with you. My friend Mary at Home is Where the Boat Is  blog, got these dishes from Mikasa in exchange for advertising for them. When I saw her GORGEOUS post, I FELL IN LOVE with the dishes and told Mary I was going to get some. She e-mailed me and asked if she could SEND THEM TO ME!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAAATTT???? I was ecstatic! They are just beautiful, truly, and are in the colors that I LOVE! I will use these for many years to come! So without further ado, here is my table. Hope you like it. This is a service for 4 but I just set the table for Joe and I. I posted this table last year, as you will see (the walls were still white). I decided I couldn't do a better table but wanted to reshare these gorgeous dishes. We are getting lots of use out of them and will for years to come!!!

 I started with a beige tablecloth to give a neutral background to the table to highlight the dishes. Then I made a garland. I started with a VERY basic leaf garland and just added to it! I am a bad blogger and forgot to get a picture when I started, sorry!!!
 I added one of my berry garlands, some fresh cut hydrangeas from the yard

 a pine cone found while out on my walk
 and a monkey ball found on the same walk

 The inside of the bowl is plain so I added some leaves:)
 And a little "fluff" under the bowls adds texture and pizazz!!!

 I gathered 3 napkins this time; green, beige and orange, mimicing the colors of the leaves on the plates.
 gathered in a leaf embossed ring
 I added a simple candle holder and my cute squirrel. I like squirrels now that we aren't in the woods and they aren't destroying everything in sight:):) And now that it is getting dark earlier we can light our candle at dinner!!

 Oh how I love Fall, these dishes and colors!!! This makes my heart happy. They look even more beautiful now that the room is painted:)

My trusty brown bamboo flatware are used all during Fall.

 My dollar store goblets are perfect too.
I found these carved gourds several years ago and have never used them. Aren't thet great!?

 Let's light that candle!
