Welcome to Tablescape Thursday! I hope that you are having a wonderful week. I can’t believe that it is already November! Where did October go? It will be Thanksgiving before we know it. Next week, I will share some tips that will hopefully make your holiday entertaining easier. Also, the following week, I will be participating in a holiday recipe blog hop that will hopefully give you some great ideas for your holiday meals.
Recently, Mr. Bleu and I hosted some great friends for a casual Autumn dinner. I didn’t want a fancy table, just something casual but pretty.
For the underpinning of the table, I chose my favorite navy blue tablecloth. I know that you see me use this linen a lot, but it goes with a lot of different looks.
The place setting is simple. I chose a burlap placemat, navy and white napkins, Mikasa English Countryside plates, and American Fostoria crystal.
Shopping the house, I chose a lace table runner and a Fall arrangement flanked with gold mercury glass candle holders for the centerpiece.
Thank you so much for joining me today! I hope that you have a great day and a happy and blessed weekend!!!
Thank you, Summer! I hope that you have a wonderful weekend!!!

Thank you, Pam! I hope that you have a wonderful weekend!!!
Your table linens are always perfect! I love blues of any shade.
Thank you, Sandra! I hope that you have a wonderful weekend!!!
So pretty Shannon! I think the burlap mats are a great way to soften things up and add fall texture to your beautiful dishes and glasses, and a wonderful contrast to the navy-
Thank you, Jenna, for the sweet comment! I hope that you are having a great day!!!
