Bird Theme Tablescape


Last year in October Frosted Petunias sponsored a Tea Party Under A Halloween Moon. It's happening again on October 29th & 30th! This year it's called A Witch's Tea Party Under a Halloween Moon, and here's the link.

There's already a kettle full of fun boiling over there! You may want to check it out. In the meantime here's a peek at my entry from last year.


I chose a fall bird theme for my tablescape using my favorite Wedgewood china, a bit of mood lighting, and a few birds nests.





A vintage lace tablecloth is laid underneath, and my plain cotton napkins are centered on top. A bird placecard continues the theme.




Vintage flatware catches the twinkle of candlelight.




Creamware bowls, and a few pieces from my ironstone collection round out the table.







Mercury glass votives cast a moody glow. . . .




And a large Vintage McCoy jardiniere filled with dried baby's breath centers the table.































Isn't fall a fun time for tables?
Now I have to go think up something for the Witch's Tea!
Ciao! for now!

Love the bird theme. The silverware is such a pretty pattern. Great idea using the mccoy for a center piece...I have the same one.

I love white! The Wedgwood plates are just wonderful. Love the bird theme. The crocheted tablecloth reminds me of one my Mom made in 1944 before she was married. Love your site. I'm signing up to follow you. Summer
