When my son Rick got his new camera I asked him if he would take some pictures of one of my tablescapes for me. A good camera makes all of the difference when taking indoor pictures under low light conditions.
I had already set up a black and white tablescape for Sunday morning but it was not quite finished. I needed to go shopping for a few things for dinner and did not get home until about 2:30. Well the boys beat me home and had already started a photo shoot. So a few of the pictures will have some differences in the way they look.
Below you will see one of the more complete pictures. The pumpkin salad plates came from Walmart this year. I thought they were really cute. They are set on a plain generic black dinner plate and a plain generic white charger. Below the generic charger is a blackish leather charger that I found at Goodwill this week.
The table covering came from a remnant at JoAnn's.
The flatware, wine glasses, and the black oblong plates (with the little boo pumpkins on them) all came from Marc's my favorite close out store (and so much more).
The orange pumpkin plates break up all of the black and white rather nicely don't you think?
The napkins and the orange and gold napkin rings were found at our Volunteers of America store about a mile from the house. They have some of the nicest napkin rings and napkins you can hope to find at a thrift store.
The large candle holders were bought at Goodwill a couple of weeks ago. The candles are from our Marc's store. The blackbirds have been collected through the years. The black side dishes were also a Goodwill find.
I found the copper pumpkins on the chair at Marc's too (I love the copper pumpkins).
Thank you to my son Rick for your fantastic pictures.
