Fall and Wine equals Tablescapes

Tis the season, yes that’s right the season to change tablescapes…. fall and Christmas have to be my favourite table seasons, I have collected so many pieces over the years that I can change the table weekly, sometimes even daily. Are you a tbale person… do you treat the table as part of the decor or is it the gathering place for everything?
I keep my table set always, helps prevent the accumulation of clutter plus it just makes the dining room look lovely. and yes I still have a dining room.  I searched all over for a house with a dining room just because it is like the best place in the house.. truly it is, no TV distractions, no phone distractions, when the family is in the dining room everyone pays attention to everyone else, for me it is become the center of the house even more then the kitchen because still to many distraction. Try it, have the family eat in the dining room and see how easy it is to get everyone to share and participate.

I started fall with a Wine themed table… plus  wanted a chance to show off my wine themed chalkboard name tags… how easy and cute right.  I had the easels already so I picked up these mini chalkboards at Michaels, searched on line for wine quotes and every board has a different quote, and has your name to show where you should sit..

and yes I caved and had to get more chargers this year, could you have passed up plaid chargers?? I think not. they go perfectly with the leaf napkin rings and the leaf plates I found at The Christmas Shoppe in North Conway ( I need one of those stores in my backyard)
