Tablescape Thursdays

This is my first time posting a Tablescape and I thought I would share
my combination thanksgiving/birthday table. 

Started off with a new fall tablecloth that I found at Wal-Mart.

I loved the pattern.

I added a lace runner that was given to me a few years ago.

Then came the centerpiece I made a few weeks ago. 

Followed by some leaves and candles.

and of course, a few pumpkins to complete the look.

Then I added the dishes.

I kept it fairly simple with simple white and added color from the napkin.

I added a special birthday decoration for those of us who were celebrating birthdays.

And used pumpkins with our names written on them for name places.

And a decoration hanging from the fan for fun :)

It was time to light the candles and set the mood.

Candles always make things prettier.

I hope you enjoyed my first tablescape, thanksgiving with a splash of birthday.  I'm participating in Tablescape Thursdays at Between Naps on the Porch.  Go check it out to see some amazing tablescapes.
