Forest Friends Tablescape

Welcome to another Thanksgiving Tablescape Blog Hop. I love sharing the inspiration from these lovely designers.  I hope you get inspired. Many thanks to  our gracious host, Chloe from Celebrate and Decorate for organizing these very fun hops. We have shared tables for almost every holiday.  Do enjoy!

The Breakfast room is all decked out with a forest friends theme.  Rich warm fall colors dress our room.

My inspiration for this theme are these cute animal plates from Ross.  I could not resist buying them for a bargain price.  They are all different. 


I also want to point out the darling little wire pumpkin place card holders my friend Liz- Home and Gardening With Liz bought me. She sent me a picture of them on a text.  She said she was at Michaels's shopping and saw them on sale.  I checked online and couldn't find them.  She graciously sent them to me as a gift.


These very sweet faces are adorned with beautiful Autumn colors.



The squirrel is so cute, although those little critters were eating our flowers this summer. I loved watching the sweet little babies.



My pumpkin tureen is the centerpiece surrounded by a colorful Autumn wreath.

I enjoy dressing our chandeliers.


If you missed my other Thanksgiving table I posted last week, you can see it below.
           


I love this sweet cake.  I did not have time to make it, but I wanted to share it.
It blends well with my Forest Friends. This cake is from Woman Day magazine.

  2. Cute assembly, Linda. I like the casual tone in your breakfast room. Here's hoping you're far enough north and central in CA to not be impacted by air quality, not to mention the devastating fire.

    1. Thank you Rita. Sometimes casual is perfect. We are safe. We are experiencing the smoke. I feel so bad for those who lost their lives and some who lost their homes. Practically the whole town of Paradise has burned.

    2. Good news. Several of my purse collecting friends and their families have been impacted.

    1. Thanks Debbee. I could not resist those cute little faces. Thank you for thinking of me. We are fine. The fire is about an hour and half from us.

  4. I love your tureen wreathed in autumn beauty as a centerpiece for your table Linda! Your pumpkin place card holders from Liz are a fun fall or Thanksgiving addition to any table. Your woodland creatures are adorable although I have a love/hate relationship with the squirrels...they’ve chewed our house and our boat! Love the shot of your ceiling with your decorated chandy. It’s painted the perfect color for the season. I always enjoy blog hopping with you. Happy Thanksgiving!

  8. Oh, your plates are adorable! I love how you nestled your pumpkin tureen in the twig wreath - it looks as though it is nesting there for the cold months ahead. Your squirrels look happy with all the acorns to nibble on. You have created a fun and colorful setting with your chandelier decorated as well. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

  12. The woodland creatures plates are adorable as are the others. I can imagine how our little grandson's eyes would light up if he say these. Your traditional color palette is warm and inviting and I look forward to making that cake next year.

  13. Linda, your forest friends table is so pretty! I have similar salad plates and each time I look at your cute little animal faces, I can't help but smile. How clever of you to set up a little vignette of squirrels with acorns all around them as it adds to your tablescape theme and I have to agree that "those" little critters can be cute or a nuisance. I may smile at their antics at times, but in the back of my mind I am thinking how much like a rat they are and I certainly do not like rats. LOL Of course I feel the same way about the Tom & Jerry Cartoons too. Mice are only adorable in cartoon form. Thank you for your inspiration at this blog hop and all the others we have participated in together. Happy Thanksgiving from our home to yours.
