My first Tablescape Thursday with Susan at BetweenNapsOnThePorch

So here I go, my first attempt at joining Susan and so many others with wonderful tablescapes for Tablescape Thursday....I hope it works!
Since moving into this house five years ago, I have changed the table "decor" each month with a different theme. We seldom use this room so it might as well look enjoyable when passing through is my thought.  September has always been a tough month for me to decide on the tablescape since there isn't really a holiday.  I finally decided  that fruit would be the theme since it's my son's birthday month and he LOVED apples and applejuice as a little guy...his grandpa called him Scotty appleseed.
So out comes the Longaberger fruit pottery and their solid color pottery as well.




The mugs are also Longaberger....can you just taste the warm apple cider? yummy.
I don't remember what the placemats are called, they are from Fred Myer here locally.  I couldn't decide on the Eggplant luncheon plates or the sage so I used both on top of the Spice dinnerplates.  I just love the little "fruitlet" inside the desert bowl.


Sorry about the blurry picture

Oops...I just notice that I took the napkins away to iron and they never made it back!




Faux fruit for Scotty




This wraps it up for Sept. fruit....makes me want to dig out the Halloween decor....it's much more exciting!
Thank you for stopping by...be sure to go visit all the other tablescapes that joined Susan at Between Naps on the Porch.

  1. This looks so nice I definitely think you should call a couple of friends and eat in here--of course, then you'll have to have something besides faux fruit :) I love your table setting. Welcome to TT!

I love your Longaberger fruit china...gorgeous and oh, so FALL! :-) Don't feel bad about the napkins...can't tell you how many times I've taken pics only to realize later that I left something off the table. :-) I love the idea of setting the table to enjoy all month...brilliant idea!

    Take care,
    Donna

  26. I love Longaberger, your table is so pretty. I have the heritage green pottery I wish I had some of the colored pottery. I live in Ohio about 2 hours from the Longaberger Homestead. I wish I could go more often I time a year is about it. I so want more of the pottery I have about 300 baskets I wish I had did more pottery and less baskets. I use my baskets what is the point in haveing them if you don't use them
