Woodland Critters Come Out For Fall…..And More!
My sweet friends, welcome to my little Critters Fall Tablescape.
I have to say, I l-o-v-e critters!
Well, with the exception of those that slither and creep….I don’t care too much for them up close and personal. (As long as they stay social distanced, I can cope with that.) LOL
Fall is one of my favorite times of the year…Oh, what am I saying?
I love all the seasons.
And I love my little ‘straw critters’ because they make me think of Fall.
I actually have more straw critters in my collection, but I settled for just four …the two foxes and the two raccoons.
I could have brought out the rabbits, squirrels, owls, beavers, quail and pheasants etc….but I got hold of myself! LOL
I set the tablescape on the Lanai near the waterfall because the rocks that make up the waterfall look so Fall-ish!
And here in Florida, one takes what one can get.
I used an Autumnal tablecloth with wood sliced circles for chargers.
Topping the wood slice chargers are orange dinner plates and green cabbage salad plates.
A few months ago, a dear friend of mine gave me the green cabbage plates, the beautiful squash tea pot and the yellow bell pepper dish.
I promised her she would see them in a tablescape and here they are….perfect for this Fall Critter table.
Autumn colored glass leaf plates will hold the dessert of Apple Cobbler topped with a cream cheese whipped topping.
Flatware has wood handles to go with the more rustic setting.
The glassware with the autumnal leaves came from the dollar store many Harvest moons ago.
I have used the brown linen napkins with the leaf embroidery …..I don’t remember when or where I got them.
I perched a brown plaid bow at the top of the napkin.
This setting for two menu included a chicken pot pie made in a cast iron skillet using canned biscuits for the top.
The filling consisted of fresh thyme and sage from my herb garden along with sliced mushrooms, potato, onions, chicken and chicken broth.
The Captain loves comfort food and this Fall tablescape with critters was the perfect venue.
I used the little chipmonks for the use of name cards, but got to thinking…if the Captain and I don’t know who we are by now…we better just forget about it and that is what I did. LOL
As I was editing these pics for the table…I noticed something was wrong with Mr. Fox.
Can you see what it is?
Thank you for allowing me to share my love of all God’s creatures in this Woodland Critters Come Out For Fall table setting.
Genesis 2:19 “Now the Lord God had formed out of the ground all the wild animals and all the birds in the sky. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name.”
My dear friend Rita gave two choices for the Fall blog hop…I couldn’t decide which I liked better so I used them both.
