Red October Tablescape


I didn't get a chance to do any tablescaping with my red dishes this summer so I decided that red is also a fall color!
So I've blended it with the oranges and yellows of the season.

Most everything either came from Marshalls or Goodwill. I've been collecting little bits of red for awhile.

These red square plates with the hummingbird are one of my favorites.

Oh yes, these leaf s&p shakers are a recent purchase from Walmart.

Fall colors are particularly beautiful with candlelight.

I'm loving my dining room now and will have Thanksgiving dinner here with just my children and grandchildren.

I have linked up with Susan's "Tablescape Thursday" at Between Naps On The Porch". You can find her wonderful and inspiring site here:

Thanks for stopping by and please leave me a little comment if you so desire.
Love hearing from you all.



  1. So pretty Shirley! Love your new leaf s&p shakers. :)

  2. Love that red table. The little red square plates are beautiful! I have the same s&p shakers, mine came from Wal Mart also. Your dining room is beautiful, I'm sure your Holiday dinners will be something to be remembered. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I love those. You must have lots of dishes. I am looking for some new dishes myself. I will have to check out thrift stores. I wanted some Fiestaware but decided it is too heavy. Each piece weighs so much. Maybe some plain white.

  4. What a lovely red table! I think all of the different red patterns blend so perfectly together. My favorite is the small red square one, but those white and red plaid ones are some I would love for my own collection too.

    And when you lit the candles? Beautiful!

  5. What a lovely table -I love red too -How welcoming your Thanksgiving table will look

  6. You're right! Candlelight adds just the right touch and atmosphere - I just love your red dishes! All the different patterns and textures - amazing!
