Dining Table Fall Decor Setting

Again.  I know, seriously?  I keep adding to this table for some reason.  I can't help myself.  The other day as I was looking around in my pantry, I saw 2 boxes.  I had totally forgotten about them.  They were wooden boxes that stored turkey dessert plates that I had found a very long time ago from Goodwill.  I usually try to use them at Thanksgiving.  They had never been used and if I'm remembering correctly I paid less than $10 for both sets.  The print on the outside of each box said, Pottery Barn.

See?


Gobble plates...you can imagine when I slid the top off the box,  how I felt seeing these awesome plates.  Just having the wooden boxes to store them in was great.
I snatched up both boxes.  I've decided to add them to the place setting on my formal dining room table.  Here's what I did...I moved the cup and saucer off to the side and added the plate to each place setting.
Gobble...Gobble I say!

All better now.  Dollar Tree has these really beautiful fall leave glasses.  I passed them by.  I don't why I do things like that.  They were ONE DOLLAR EACH.  They're probably all gone now.  If you're out and about and have a Dollar Tree...check them out.  I've seen these glasses on several table settings throughout blog world!  They are truly beautiful.

I can't wait to show you what one can of white paint can do around the house.  I didn't go crazy....but I did paint a couple of things.  I can't wait to share with you on the next post!

Linking up with these parties!

  1. You fall table setting is beautiful! I love the turkey dessert plates. I found the cutest turkey at JoAnn's and I made a wreath for my kitchen door with him. I can't wait to see what you've been painting...I'll be following along.

    Have a wonderful day,
