Fall Decorating For A Dinner Party

As many of you know I'm staying with my daughter and her family for a while, so I won't be decorating too much this season, so I am rerunning a post from last year.  For those of you who missed it last year, I hope that you enjoy it.

Hello Again from The French Hen's Nest

   Hope that you're having a great week.  I'm getting ready for Fall/ Thanksgiving, and have a lot of ideas swirling, and swirling, you probably know what I mean.  When you start dreaming about decorating it's probably time to take a little break.  But that's not going to happen!  I have a small dinner party coming up, and I decided to set the table for Fall with two different settings to see which I like  better.
    For the first setting I used a duvet cover as a table cloth.  It has Fall colors, and  I love the way it falls to the floor.  The center is off white, with flowers.  I used  pink and brown, and cream colored china.

The center piece is made of fresh Fall leaves of many colors. 

Red Oak Leaves serve as napkin rings

            I used blue and white in this place setting.   With a white table cloth and blue and white place mats.   Blue and white are my signature colors.

Think I've made up my mind, as usual its the blue and white first time, pink next time.  What do you think?

Thank you so much for stopping by.  Wishing you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving.

Till Nest Time,
