I won! Yippeee! And what did I win? Wonderful tablescaping treasures. And where did I win these beauties? At Candy’s lovely blog, Plum Creek Place.
My prizes included these two fun bowls (Park Designs, Sunny Day).
Don’t you love the sunflowers around the bowls, and I really like that red rim on the bowls. There was just enough nip in the air to serve chili.
Under each bowl, I used green salad plates (Casa Stone, Autumn Waves).
The dinner plates, bought on sale a few years ago, are Pier 1, Oralia. A woven charger forms the base for each place setting.
The china napkin rings were painted for my mother by one of her friends about 35 years ago.
My prize package also contained two sets of salt and pepper shakers! (I’m telling you, this was a major prize, and it wasn’t a leg lamp). I used the Sunflower shakers and gave my sweetheart mushroom shakers.
A tiered Fall leaf server held some cornbread squares. Although this table runner (which I’ve had for years) looks like Summer, it seemed to coordinate with the Sunflower theme.
I made a cheese ball,
Faux Sunflowers filled a vase on the table.
But the REAL centerpiece was this adorable Sunflower server from my prize package. Each of the petals contained something to go with our chili. This handy-dandy server held apple bites, chopped onions (although I add onions to the chili when it is cooking, we like a few raw onions on top), croutons. crackers. and green olives. The bowl in the center held a little hot sauce, in case my sweetheart needed to spice up his chili. Under the Sunflower set, I used a flower-embossed serving plate on top of a turn table, so we could easily reach each petal.
In addition to all of these wonderful goodies in my prize box, there were eight beautiful napkins, which I thought were too fancy for our chili dinner. I can promise you that these beauties will soon show up on another tablescape.
Wow! When Plum Creek Place has a giveaway, you don’t want to miss it! Thanks so much, Candy.
I’m so glad you stopped in to visit today.
