Dining With A Hoot Owl

I hope you like owls, or at least mercury glass owls, because this one is sitting right in the middle of my centerpiece. 

She's sitting among the gourds, berries, nuts and leaves. She might be here to stay because most owls don't make long migrations.

Little Miss Owl probably isn't paying too much attention to anything on my table since she is doesn't eat berries or nuts. She might be looking in the yard for an insect or maybe a mouse. 

I'm lighting the candle for the table but Miss Owl won't need the light to see; her eyes are so large she can navigate in her habitat at night. 

Now on to my table, 

If you have been to the Dollar Tree lately, you might have seen these fall plates. I love the color (and the price). I had a great tablecloth to go with the plates (from Penney's a number of years ago). 

The chargers were a gift several years ago from Pottery Barn and add a nice outdoor touch with the fall plates. The napkins are dish towels also from the Dollar Tree.

The centerpiece takes up most of the table with the addition of fall leaves, small pumpkins, acorns, and pine cones. 

Wine glasses sit among the leaves. 

A sun flower showing the colors of fall.

The table is full of fall colors and decor, so now it must be time to serve the food. 

Thanks for stopping in and keep an eye out for the owls - Judy.

  15. Judy - I love the way that you mixed all of the fall colors and your story, about the cute owl. I have not seen the dishes at Dollar Tree, but I do not think we get everything in my town that other stores get. Love them. Great job - thanks for sharing!

  22. Judy, You have set a lovely fall table. I love the mercury glass owl. He seems very at home amongst the acorns and the fall leaves. I have one that is still hiding elusively in a box somewhere upstairs. Maybe I will locate him sometime before Christmas. Thank you so much for sharing this charming fall tablescape.
