This week, we had a Halloween theme going on.

6 Halloween Salad Plates - {still looking for 2 more}

Sunday Table 1

One of my 2012 goals was to set a beautiful table each Sunday!
Since this is October -- and this is the first tablescape I'm posting --
you might get a feel for just how unsuccessful I have been with this specific goal!
But hey, there is still one quarter of I can still set several pretty tables!
We have a square table, which for some unknown reason, I always think
our table is particularly hard to decorate.  But it really isn't!
Rectangle placemats overlap, so I'm a little limited to round placemats and chargers. 

I put a charger on a cake stand for the centerpiece.
Candle sticks were from Hobby Lobby several years ago.
Velvet pumpkins I bought last year.

I always keep an eye out for 90 inch round tablecloths.
{It is SO HARD to find pretty square tablecloths!}
This one looks like burlap, but it isn't -- it has a pretty weave,
and is really rather soft.
I found it at Bed Bath & Beyond.

I love it when people post where they found their table treasures.
Let me see if I can remember where mine came from:
Flatware, stemware, tablecloth, and salad plates - Bed Bath & Beyond
Chargers and napkin rings - Pier One
Solid color plates - Tai Pan Trading {last year}
Napkins - Tuesday Morning
Cheers to working on goals -- even last quarter!
