“Be thankful for what you have. Your life, no matter how bad you think it is, is someone else’s fairy tale.” ~Wale Ayeni
I was fortunate to find and buy this table at an estate sale over four years ago. It’s a very old harvest table and quite long and narrow. Because of it’s width, I made this burlap table runner to fit on it. The burlap and the antlers in the centerpiece give a rustic look to this tablescape. You can see last year’s here, which was quite rustic.
One of my favorite local stores, Kennedy’s Flowers & Gifts, always gives a special $10 off coupon for fresh flowers in your birthday and anniversary month. So I picked up these beautiful roses from Kennedy’s and used them in my centerpiece.
I have several real pumpkins, but I decided to use this pinkish/orange one.
Everything in the centerpiece is all real and from Mother nature.
I picked up a bunch of fresh eucalyptus with seeds from Trader Joe’s, which I used as the base for my centerpiece.

The silverware has long been discontinued. It was on our wedding registry almost 50 years ago and I still love it. The napkins came from HomeGoods.
The china I used is also discontinued. It’s Signet by Royal Doulton but here’s a similar one.
When we downsized we got rid of all our crystal from years ago that I no longer cared for. I ended up buying these beautiful Marquis by Waterford water goblets and they are perfect for our needs.
I use a pair of these tiny crystal salt and pepper shakers on each end of the table. They were another great find from an estate sale.
I made my own napkin rings by tying a jute string around the tops of the napkins and sliding some of the fresh eucalyptus and seeds between the napkin and jute. Easy and no extra cost!
